Roush 32 Ford Highboy

Anyone who is familiar with NASCAR racing will recognize the name Jack Roush.  Mr. Roush heads up the Roush Industries, Inc.  A large company that includes racing (NASCAR) and performance parts and vehicles.  He has had a long partnership with Ford Motor Company.

Mr Roush was asked to build a prototype hot rod vehicle based on the 1932 Ford.  Ford was studying the feasibility of building 100 limited production Roush Performance versions of the '32 Roadster and this one-of-one vehicle will never be reproduced in its current form.  It was a hands-on project and Rouse has his vision imprinted throughout the car.  He personally chose the engine, a ROUSH Performance 4021R crate motor which puts out 500 horsepower and 500lb.-ft toque.  Roush also chose the interior design as well as the beautiful burgundy color.

The LeMay Museum has this beautiful car for all to admire.
