For the discerning hot rod collector,
NewstalgiaMotors.com presents a rare opportunity to purchase
the legendary "Dick Miller 1932 Ford Model B Roadster".
This gorgeous red full-fendered 1932 Ford Roadster has
quite a storied history dating back to the mid-seventies.
The car was built by street rodder and world famous Bonneville land speed record holder
Jerry Kugel, of Kugel Komponents fame,
for the late land speed racer and World Champion hydro boat racer, Dick Miller.
Dick came up with the idea and design of some cars for a series
of Reproduction Hot Rods.
Unfortunately, Dick was killed in 1988 at the Dry Lake Beds at El Mirage
attempting to set a record in a Streamliner.
Dick s racing career also included sprints, stock cars, and dragsters.
He also was the sponsor of the world famous fuel altered dragster
Dick had sold his Ford dealership and had gone back to land speed racing
in his last few years.
There is a feature film being made about the life story of Dick and his family.
His son is the current owner.
This esteemed roadster went on to become one of the cars
that were built in a series titled "Build Your Own Repro Street Rod"
featured on the cover and in the October, 1977 issue of HOT ROD Magazine.
To celebrate HOT ROD's 65th anniversary in 2013,
the magazine held the HOT ROD Homecoming March 23 and March 24
at the Fairplex in Pomona, California;
a gathering of all the old HRM feature and cover cars they could find.
