Lot #3010 - The Alex Xydias Center for Automotive Arts, a division of the Learning Center at the Fairplex in Pomona, CA, was established by hot rod business owners and car enthusiasts offering a two-year program to prep students for a career in the automotive industry. In collaboration with L.A. Roadsters, passionate expert volunteers donated their time and worked with the students to build this 1932 Ford roadster as a tribute to America's most iconic roadster, the quintessential Bob McGee Hi-Boy. The tribute evokes the sport of the original, with modern safety and comfort items added. Featuring a Brookville Roadsters body and C-notched frame, Winter's banjo rear, So-Cal Speed Shop ladder bars and shocks, Speedway Motors split wishbone, Vega cross steer and 1940 Ford brakes. The '40 Ford steering wheels tops the LimeWorks column. A 12-gallon fuel tank sits in the stock position. Wheel Smith wheels are wrapped in Firestone rubber. Chrome rings finish off the wheels. H&H Flatheads supplied the requisite 24-stud 1940 Ford flathead motor, featuring Navaro heads with 8:1 compression. The block is topped with a Wieand 2x2 high-rise manifold and two Stromberg 97s covered with Stellings air cleaners. Headers and exhaust system are custom-built. Also features a Powermaster alternator with SPAL fan and Mattson radiator, a T5 transmission with Cornhusker Rod & Custom clutch and a floor-mounted shifter. Like the original, the roadster has hidden hinges, a three-piece hood, a filled and peaked grille, and louvers in the hood and sides. The extended dash is custom-built by Chris Comacho, featuring five Classic Instrument gauges and Painless wiring. 1950 Pontiac taillights and King Bee headlights. A Sid Chavers Bop Top with 2" chop tops the windshield frame. The interior uses a movable Glide Engineering bench seat and is finished in leather by Ron Mangus. The body was finished off in PPG Flame Red at LGE-CTS Motorsports by AXC Program Leader Theresa Contreras. **ALL PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT THE ALEX XYDIAS CENTER FOR AUTOMOTIVE ARTS** **WILL BE SOLD AT APPROXIMATELY 8:30PM ON SATURDAY JANUARY 30, 2016**
