The Boydster 1 roadster rolled into the hobbyDB Boyd Coddington online musem at hobbyDB this week.
The original Boydster was built as Coddington’s own personal ride, the first he had done for himself in years. This ’32 Ford harkens back to the clean, simple look of early hot rods, fenderless and absent most chrome. The hi-boy style retains the proportions of the original car, but the entire body was actually reconstructed from aluminum. Attention to detail includes having the leading edge of the doors run right into the raked windshield. The custom red color is perfectly matched in the leather upholstery, carpets and steering wheel. You can read much more about it here.
Our collection is organized and maintained by Boyd Coddington Jr., son of the late great customizer. We will add a new entry every week or so… not just the real cars, but also the miniature versions in diecast, kit, or whatever form they take. You can get the full story here.
The Boydster 2 was also added to the collection recently.
As much as we want to claim to be the experts on his full-sized cars, though, we still need some help completing the rest of our collection. Got a model of one of our cars that we haven’t listed? Did you score some sweet promotional materials at a car show? Got any amazing photos of his rides in action? You can log onto hobbyDB and post them!
