Iron Trap 1932 Ford “DeLorean” Roadster: Testing The Custom Two Speed Rearend!
On a previous video from the 1932 Ford Roadster build you saw Matt and the guys putting together a custom shifter for the ultra-rare Columbia 2-speed rearend that is in the car. This is a cool mod that I was super excited about and apparently I wasn’t alone. Unfortunately for all of us, the first test drive didn’t involve high enough speeds to engage the rear and so it wasn’t tested out yet. In this video it gets the test and also broken in correctly. I dig it. You will too.

After driving the 1932 Ford Roadster around the block, we had a ton of comments about shifting the Columbia Rear. While driving we didn’t get the car up to a high enough speed to shift, and the rear really needs to be run and shifted to get oil throughout. Matt and Steve also work on getting the hood to fit the grill and cowl better. The hood was stored off the car for many years and it has lost its shape. The hood hinge pin was also removed at some point, and was not fully installed allowing the front edge to move around. After the work to the hood, its time to run in the rear and test the shifter!!
