Hot Rods &
Customs For Sale
This is where members of the Vintage Hot Rod Association can advertise their VHRA eligible cars for sale. To advertise a car, you’ll need to email us photographs, a full description, price and your contact details, all of which will be included in the advert. Ads must include a price, so no “offers” or “POA” please. Cars do not need to be complete, but they do need to be together enough to show that they meet the rules for joining the club.
There’s no fee for this service and your ad will run until the car is sold, so please remember to let us know if it finds a new home. This service is only available to VHRA members that are private sellers, not those in the motor trade. You must be a member for at least six months before you can use this service.
If you're in the market to buy, then please direct your queries to the contact details in the adverts, not to the VHRA.

Miles Robinson is selling his Car of GOW! trophy winning Model A roadster.
"Very reluctant sale of my 29/32 Roadster.
This car was built in the late 70’s early 80,s by some old time Hot Rod guys including Norm Grabowski (of Kookie T fame) and Danny Bearden. I have some period pictures of Norm with the car.
Engine: Mercury Flathead V8 with a total rebuild by Motor City Flatheads. Period Offenhauser ally heads with matching inlet running triple Stromberg carbs. Full oil filtering with external screw on filter. Custom chrome exhaust with cutouts or fully silenced.
Gearbox: 1939 Ford 3 speed with complete Zephyr internals, shifts very nicely.
Rear axle is 40s Ford banjo with lots of chrome and custom fittings. Genuine Buick finned brake drums.
Front axle is dropped and also has genuine Buick finned brake drums. Back plates have subtle chrome finish.
Chassis is pinched 1932 which is boxed. Steering wheel and gauges are all genuine period items.
The car is as nice underneath as it is on top. All chrome is in great condition and is triple plate show chrome.
The car is registered on a UK V5 as a 32 Ford (as per the original US title and chassis)
Must be seen to be appreciated. Won the VHRA/Sidewinders Car of GOW! trophy in 2023, which was its first UK outing."

Raced at Pendine and GOW!. A real nice VHRA compliant, proper early car with all the right bits.
Just moving it on as got too many toys and not enough time. I shipped it in a few years ago now and went completely through it. The V8 fires up first time every time, trans never jumps out of gear. Drivers door is full of bullet slugs and could do with a skin if that's your thing, but personally for me it's part of the car."
