Speedway Motors founder “Speedy” Bill Smith and Ed Mosher got together on, and came up with, a 1932 Ford Roadster that set the industry on its head in 1988. This roadster was the ultimate in engineering design, craftsmanship and technological wizardry.
The high tech vehicle created an illusion of a conventional classic street rod, yet under its skin were incorporated the most technologically advanced materials and components available. Even today, the features of this car are extraordinary. Weighing in at less than 1,000 lbs (997 lbs, to be exact!), its Allison gas-turbine engine (375 h.p.) could propel the vehicle to speeds exceeding 250 m.p.h.
Using special composite materials, Speedway produced the unique monocoque frame rails and a fiberglass ’32 roadster body out of its molds (the same molds you can buy your ’32 body from today.) There were also innovations developed too numerous to mention by these two individuals that have made this the ultimate in street rods.
Ed Mosher, a tool, die and mold maker for GM, totally built the project by himself. Mosher took great pride in the car's exceptional level of craftsmanship; from each unique mostly hidden detail to its overall design, this ’32 is impeccable. Mosher's attention to engineering, detail and smooth design is unmatched.
