FEATURE STORY UPDATE: ‘Metal of Honor’ 1932 Ford Roadster

If you’ve been following Classic Recollections for a while, you may remember the special ‘Metal of Honor’ 1932 Ford Roadster that was featured exactly one year ago. Needless to say, it’s come a long way since our 2010 fall photoshoot. Island Lake, IL hot rod shop, Custom Classics, wrapped up the build – composed entirely of donated parts and labor – and in the several months since, the little camo-ed coupe has been busy touring the nation. It was presented at shows and events (including  an appearance in Las Vegas for the 2011 SEMA Show where it popped up on the BBC’s TopGear’s website) as well as had the chance to stop by for a video at Jay Leno’s Garage, where the TV-host celebrity took an up close look at the patriotic Ford.

It’s been a long road for the special project but come this Sunday, the roadster will be passed off to a new owner when it crosses the auction block at the Scottsdale, AZ, Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction, with all proceeds going to the IRONMEN FOUNDATION, helping the children of slain and disabled military personal. To keep up to date, head over to the ‘Metal of Honor’ Facebook page.

With this mission completed, we can’t wait to see what the two men behind this vision, Chuck Caswell and shop owner Bryan Reehoff, have in store for their next custom four-wheeled undertaking.
