Conrad W. Jacobs' 1932 Ford Roadster
1932 Ford Roadster owned and built by Conrad W. Jacobs of Baltimore, Maryland. Kim Jordan was a neighbor of Jacobs in the 1950s, when he lived in Lochearn, Maryland, and in 2020 he recalled Conrad's hot rods well. "The first was a 1932 Ford Roadster," he told Sondre Kvipt of Kustomrama. "Painted maroon, channeled and fenderless with an Ardun flathead engine. Conrad's mother, an accomplished seamstress, created the interior. It was unique in that Conrad welded up the doors, then cut them down like an early 50s MG T series. He actually let me sit in the car. There is a vague rumor that the car, sans Ardun motor, still exists near Towson, Maryland."
