Default any info on a 1934 delivery sedan

I recently purchased a 34 delivery sedan. It was in a barn for 48 years. Everything is there and I would like to do a full restoration on the car. I would appreciate any info such as interior, paint, Patch panels such as floor or rockers and lower body at the rocker areas. the car is in pretty good condition considering how long it was in the barn on a dirt floor. Is there any one out there that has a delivery sedan? Thank You

Michael, years ago I fixed a trashed 34 sedan delivery. A few things I found out along the way was that the rear fenders are all by themselves, they are NOT the same as victora, close but not the same (width is slightly different). The front doors are 4 door front doors. You can find a lot of useful info using the original Ford body parts list for 34. Using the part numbers and the body designation (780) you can tell which parts fit which models. ie for the sedan delivery body they list a 4 door front door. I would think sill and rocker parts would be same as a 4 door too, body patch panels would most likely be close to a tudor. Good luck.

As a side note, I sold mine after I got it finished because it made me nervous driving it, VERY blind on the right hand side.

Michael,
Did you have photos with you of this car at an auction in central PA a couple months ago?

I saw a very nice '34 sedan delivery last year at the Early Ford V8 Club Central National Meet in Auburn, IN. I saw it at the Town Square gathering but don't recall if it was on the show field. You might be able to look back at the V8 Times magazine that covered that show and get the name of the owner. Then look him up in the club roster and contact him. He may be a good source of information on where to find parts and how to do some of the restoration work on your vehicle. You can also go through the complete roster to find other club members who may own a '34 sedan delivery and contact them for information on your project.

Should be the same as a 5W coupe on this stuff . 5W's have short doors like fordor & sedan delivery . Tudor , 3W coupe & victoria have long doors so they have short 1/4 bottoms .

Here's a few pictures of the '34 Sedan Delivery my Dad, Richard Lacy, owned for about 25 years. It was restored by the late Don Thelen at his Buffalo Motor Cars shop in Paramount, California in the very early 80's. The color is a correct for '34 Cordoba Gray. Some liberties were taken to suite my Dad's tastes such as the dual chrome horns and chrome windshield frame. The upholstery is also far nicer than original as from the factory the rear compartment was trimmed with masonite panels. My Dad rarely drove the car because it was "too nice" and as someone else mentioned, they have huge blind spots. The car was supposed to have a passenger-side mirror but it got over looked during the restoration process.

The car was sold 8(?) years ago to a couple in Missouri who sought my Dad out through the V8 Club Registry as they were looking for a '34 Sedan Delivery specifically. They made quite a few changes to make the car more factory correct and we learned a few years ago by seeing a picture and caption in the V8 Times that it won a Dearborn Award. As far as we know they still own it and it may be the one that was seen at a meet in Indiana???

PM me with your email address and I'll send pictures of the wood in one restored a couple months ago - including the new rear door and door jam. I do have some of the brackets if needed

We make reproduction wood for all of wood required in the '33-34 Ford sedan deliveries except the top bows. We have been making the reproduction wood for 40 years.

What condition is your wood? Do you have photos you are willing to share?

Thanks,
