Although this copper '32 is best known as the Neal East roadster, it was initially built in the late '50s by Bill Woodard, of Eagle Rock in Los Angeles.

Beppie posted this picture of the car in the Roadsters thread and ownership is unknown for the time it had this look. Jacked up in front, no front bumper or V8 emblem, but the peaked grille shell and molded hinges, chrome wheels with baby moons and white walls give it away. It went through a few hands in it’s time, Bill Woodard, the original builder, Neal East, Paul Sievers and it is now owned by Richard Munz. There were a couple more whose names I cannot recall.
I saw it in 1976 at the Seivers farm in Indiana, they seemed surprised that I recognized it. There are three Seivers brothers, one of them mentioned that it was found in a Louisiana warehouse.
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.

Filled and peaked grill shell, a dropped headlight bar, teardrops and king bees. An age old recipe. Big headlights and all the stock gingerbread shit on the grill shell, its like adding chocolate chips and balsamic vinegar to sourdough pancakes.

Interesting fact: between 1940 to 1956 all cars in the usa were by law to have 2 7in. head lites,so if you build a 40s or early 50s rod it has to have these.As for those big deuces lites to me  they look like disco sun glasses,dont even get me started on winters grills.
