My Hiboy's specs...

          First place winner at the Primer Nationals 2006, this nostalgic Hiboy sports many desirable authentic and vintage parts, which greatly adds to its appeal. You will not see a lot of chrome on this hotrod and you will certainly not find any billet parts. Understated and unpretentious,  nothing here distracts from the simple beauty of the Deuce's lines.  A "classy rat rod" of sorts, I love my Hiboy just the way it is. The flat black finish contrasts beautifully with the glossy blood red grill insert and wheels. This old school roadster stands as a tribute to the golden days of hotrodding, back when hiboys like this one ruled the dry lakes and drag strips. And I intend to keep it that way.

BODY:

Mid 1970's unmarked fiberglass body. Manufacturer unkown, possibly an early Gibbons body with custom steel reinforcing. Body is very solid despite its age and an exact replica of original Henry Ford body, down to the firewall details.
