1932 Ford B400 Designed, Built By Boyd Coddington Sold

If you don’t know the name Boyd Coddington you don’t know hot rods. The owner of Coddington Hot Rod Shop he made a name for himself in the design and fabrication of hot rods and would later parlay that success into a television show of his own, American Hot Rod. It was that show which would turn him into a household name for car enthusiasts continuing to design and fabricate until his death in 2008 at 63 years-old.

His legacy in the automotive world will continue well into the future thanks to his work on hot rods like this 1932 Ford B400 which sold this past weekend. Designed by Coddington he himself would also do the majority of the work on this ’32 in his La Habra, CA and would have done even more had he not passed unexpectedly during this build resulting in other shops helping to finish this hot rod. This all steel convertible underwent numerous modern upgrades, but none loom larger than the fuel-injected 351ci Roush engine. Other modern touches include: air conditioning, power windows, “a racing-inspired Boyd Coddington all-independent suspension system” to name a few.

In one of those rare instances where the name and product are both equally deserving of the hype, this hot rod sold for $154,000 at Barrett-Jackson’s Palm Beach auction on Saturday and it’s a safe bet this won’t be the last we see of it.
