1932 Ford "Respect Tradition" Custom Pedal Car
Sold for $5,750
To be auctioned on Saturday, August 18, 2012
This particular pedal car features a completely hand-built, all-steel body by Hollywood Hot Rods, which accurately mimics a real ’32 roadster and is built as a tribute to Troy Ladd’s famous HHR-built “Respect Tradition” roadster. It includes a miniature, fuel-injected Hemi engine, Duvall windshield, dropped I-beam axle, leather interior, and powder coated exterior. Special attention was given to ensure that the car can still be operated by a child as a pedal car.
Special thanks to Mark Lopez (Elegance Auto Interiors, Upland, California – interior), Kevin (Pacific Coast Powder Coating, Palmdale, California – powder coating), and Ken Sapper (Speedway Engineering, Sylmar, California – cast windshield frame and dropped axle.)
