History: This Roadster came from the Dingman collection, widely recognized as the greatest collection of classic Fords ever assembled. As an absolute perfectionist, Dingman’s cars were known for their high quality restorations to almost jewel-like precision and perfection. Michael Dingman had a life long affection for all things Ford and especially for Henry’s flathead V8 engine. He achieved his collection goal of bringing together a complete Ford flathead model range for every year, in every configuration from open car to woody. His exceedingly successful business career also included the Ford Motor Company where he served as a board member for 21 years.

This Roadster is a Deuce High Boy that was originally built in the sixties but was restored to perfection by Dingman in classic fifties High Boy style with the assistance of the experts in Jack Roush’s shop.
