The McGee Roadster: Hot Rod Legend | Historic 1 day ago   21:02

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

Never knew, Iskenderian is a living person !....in the late sixties, and early 70's, hotrods were scarce here, but everyone who could, put an ,aiskiderian' cam, into their cars. Was the ONLY good cam ! Very glad to ,meet' mister Ed and friends, and thankyou, for the GOOD work, that you have done !....you golden oldies !

Great video! Hotrodding is in my blood. Glad to get inspiration again.

I was born in '53 in the Bay Area. As a kid i loved hot rods and built plenty of models,orange crate,etc. Back then, hot rod owners did most of their own work, unlike the majority of today's wealthy owners.I miss the sincerity of those times.
