Hiboy is no STOCK fenders, but the body sits on top of the frame(not channeled). A highboy can have modified fenders like the Grafitti 32.

Channeled is cutting the floor to let the body sit lower on the frame.

Regular means stock 32 fenders.

Carnut.com has a bunch of pics of all types. Go to carnut, then click "car pics index, then FORD, then 1932. Then you will see a huge list of all types.
