The Historic Vehicle Association has released its latest documentary film, “The McGee Roadster: Hot Rod Legend.”

5 October 2017

The 1932 Ford roadster is widely considered to be the quintessential hot rod platform. Of the many ’32s turned out over the years, none is as important as the McGee Roadster, the trendsetting car that set the bar for hot rod style in period and remains an icon to this day.

This documentary, produced by the Historic Vehicle Association, celebrates the McGee Roadster’s inclusion in the National Historic Vehicle Register and chronicles the rise of hot rodding culture in America.

Featuring interviews with industry pioneers like Ed Iskendarian as well as rare period footage, this short film captures the magic of a truly special car from a bygone era.

On 12 April, 2017, the McGee Roadster became part of the National Historic Register and the US Department of the Interior Historic American Engineering Record. Under this programme, the story and images of the McGee Roadster will become part of the permanent archives of the Library of Congress.
