Each year the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association gives an award to the hot rod they find to be “America’s Most Beautiful Street Rod.” This year at the Goodguys 27th annual Flowmaster West Coast Nationals, Harold & Tracy Chapman accepted the prestigious award for their 1933 Ford Roadster. This roadster was also at the Detroit Autorama and took home the “Best Rod” award and was featured in the Top 5 for many others.
This roadster had this coming a long time; bouncing around from several hi-profile shops and finishing up at his in-house shop, Customs & Hot Rods of Andice just in time for the January Grand National Roadster show. The car flows nicely and you can tell that countless hours went into the bodywork. Over 100 parts were machined and customized just for this car.
Chapman will be joining the ranks of Ron Cizek and Andy Leach on the 2000-mile Goodguys Texas Road Tour this fall. For information on the Texas Road Tour you can click HERE. Chapman also receives travel accommodations to the Goodguys 17th Southwest Nationals to join the Champions Arena.
