Our friends at Summit Racing tweeted earlier that ZZ Top frontman Billy Gibbons introduced the Coyote-Powered 1932 Ford Roadster at SEMA 2012 from So-Cal Speed shop.
According to the LA Times, the gold and white Roadster was designed by So-Cal’s President Pete Chapouris and built in collaboration with Detroit Street Rods and Champions Moto in Costa Mesa. The story says that the two companies plan on offering about a dozen of these hot rods in honor of the 80th anniversary of Henry Ford’s 1932 Roadster, with the cost estimated at $175,000 each.
The LA Times says it packs a supercharged 620 HP Coyote 5.0 crate engine and a six speed manual transmissions.

PowerBlock asked ZZ Top frontman Billy Gibbons to tell us what makes a car “cool,” and this is what he said:
We’ve got the freedom of expression to personalize, to bring in some bit of a character that may tag it as more personalized. That, I think, brings it closer to making it a real treasure to those that just want something that makes more of a statement, and in my opinion, that can be just as cool as you want it to be.
