Old school is still kool. And you can’t get more old school than this Mooneyes 1932 Ford Roadster offered for sale by a private seller from Simpsonville, North Carolina. The seller says it is an original roadster once owned and titled to Moon Speed Shop in California. The symbol for Moon Equipment Co was a pair of “eyes.” Thus the name. (See the logo on the door.) The figerglass body was made in England. It has a 350 crate motor with 3 deuces, 350 automatic GM transmission and a Ford rear end. Moon used the car in its catalog and promotions. The Bill of Sale from 2003 notes Moon as the owner at that time. It was also featured in the Mooneye parts catalog. (Follow this link to see the photos.) On Sunday this historic hot rod will be our DEAL of the DAY. Take home a piece of history when you buy it for $28,000.
In the ad, the private seller notes:
THERE ARE ALWAYS 32 ROADSTERS FOR SALE, BUT NONE HAVE ANY TIES TO A COMPANY AS WELL KNOWN AS “MOONEYES”! MOONEY’S STARTED BACK IN THE LATE 1950’s AND BECAME A SORT OF A INSTITUTION FOR SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA HOT RODDERS AND OTHER GEARHEADS. IN ADDITION, MOONEYES WAS A BIG PARTICIPANT IN THE BONNEVILLE SALT FLAT RACES SINCE THE 1960’s. MOONEYE’S IS STILL IN BUSINESS TODAY IN THE SAME LOCATION IN SANTA FE SPRINGS, CALIFORNIA SINCE 1950’s
