32 Ford roadster, best glass body best frame

The car will be used for cruising, daily driving and road trips.
I'm planning on a mild 425hp or so small block Ford with a 4 or 5 speed & a 9" rear. I don't want to break the bank and plan on keeping the car basic.

What I do want is a good soft top and a Vintage heat & AC setup.

The Downs body with the hideaway sof top look nice.

Any recommendations?

Any manufacturers to avoid?

Anytime you talk about building a 32,33,34. you can't put best and not break the bank in the same sentence, they don't go together, and then throw roadster in, you missed everything. Now every ones breaking point is different so where did you want to go, how much ball park. we can tell you things that each one of us thinks is the best, the prices will be all over the board, but we have to know what you are calling breaking the bank.
