Besides that center door, the steering wheel also folds up and back to allow the driver easy seating...and if you are plumply built, a nice advantage

In the mid 50s Joe Cruces built the "Tall-T". The Tall-T's won the "People's Choice Award" and the "Best Street Coupe" at the 1960 Oakland Roadster Show. {On the 1960 Mag Pics bellow}

[ QUOTE]="Aurora's 1/32 scale model "T for Two": And if the little Tall-T's fame hadn't risen high enough in 1963 Aurora Plastics Corporation made the cars fame never-ending by the model kit "1921 Ford High-Coupe, T for Two" was released to model builder all over the world. Yes it was made into an "all plastic assembly kit" 1/32 scale. It is reported to have sold 1 million copies in some 6 months. Thus according to reports becoming one of the 'fastest and probably biggest selling model car kits ever.'"[QUOTE]

Cycle style fenders were fabricated for a lot of New England roadsters from back when I was a kid all the way to now.

My Dearborn Deuce/Kugel had cycle style fenders fabbed.

I really miss the very special sound of that blown flathead, but I've got room and insurance for four machines, and that one went for a pro touring Town Car build that I would drive a lot more.

My dad Had a real High Boy a no fenders a model 'A' roadster mounted high on a 32 frame, back then in the 40s & 50s that was the only definition of a high boy there was, it had to be a model 'A' on top of 32 rails they used the 32 frame because it looked sculptured and clean and the Model 'A' body was perfect for mounting high on top of the frame! But through the years the true High Boy is lost with every thing without fenders being called a high boy thats really sad that things lose their true features and definitions change because everyone makes the mistake of using the wrong term to describe something and the terms true meaning gets lost as us old farts pass into oblivion LOL That can't happen to the Tall "T"

Last year at a show there was a 34 roadster fenderles everyone called it a High Boy even the owner and it was channeled LOL Well what can you do LOL times change and we get old I used to use the word gay when I was young to mean I was happy you cant say "I feel gay in this day and age!" or you get strange looks LOL

You should have told him it wasn't a high boy. I bet his expression would have been priceless!

I am not debating the correctness of your definition... but just giving my own experience of many decades.

I have to confess that after being totally obsessed with hot rods, customs, and drag racing... after reading every one of my 6,000 magazines cover-to-cover, before I sold them off... and after painting street rods for forty years... I didn't realize a "highboy" had to be unchanneled.

I think the problem was that whenever I read or heard the term... we were looking at an open-wheeled car. I kind of related the fenderless look to the term.

A word of warning for you though...

In these times, when an Isuzu with a low restriction air cleaner is considered by many to be a "hot rod"... you are beating a dead horse over this term! (To me a hot rod was a performance modified pre-war body... like my magazines taught me in the '50s and sixties!)

Today's youngsters are making a very strong effort to change all of our terminology and teach us how things were when we were young. I am afraid that the people who invented rods and customs will not recognize the hobby fifty years from now. {:-(

Oh well... Gotta go back to work on this '40 pickup street rod I'm doing. :-)~

...and don't anybody try tell me it's not a "street rod". }:-)

Never noticed them on a 'Cuda...

The hockey stripe could be a regional thing, after all we are the home of the Hockey Hall of Fame... Hockey Heads look at life differently...
