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.

1936 Ford V8 3 Window Coupe


This stunning 1936 Ford custom has come up for sale as part of the late Dave Brock's estate. The sale is being handled by Dave's long-term hot rod buddy, Derek Hicks, so all enquiries should be directed to him.

This was a long term, no expense spared project that was finally completed in 2022. From then on, Dave and the car cleaned up at every event they attended and can boast that it was Best in Show at the 2022 Hot Rod Hayride and won the Car of GOW! trophy at the the VHRAs 2023 bash at Prescott Hill. The car also had the honour of being on the cover of Soup magazine issue three.


All the wonderful custom work, including the chop, was carried out by Merv Barnett. Merv also put the chassis and running gear together. The car is powered by a traditional as they come Ford 8BA flathead equipped with high compression heads and a two barrel manifold topped with two 94 carbs. A custom built rad makes sure everything stays cool. A new Powergen alternator is fitted along with a hi-torque starter motor. Behing the flathead is a five speed manual transmission that runs to a banjo rear converted to open drive. Forty Ford brakes reside at each corner, all with new shoes, cylinders and drums. Steering is taken care of by a Borgeson steering box, whilst custom caps and wide whites finish off the rolling stock. As you would expect, the interior is finished to a high spec and was expertly trimmed by Chris White.
