Chris,


They are known as dovetails, with that in your photos on the doors being the male and that on the B pillar being the female (likely politically incorrect). Snyder's uses that...

Re: 1934 roadster dash

Good point, Sheldon, as you have to match the ash tray to the dash or modify the dash.

Re: 1934 roadster dash

Keith,


It's a standard '34 RHD dash of the type with an integral instrument panel, i.e. manufactured after the surplus of '33 dashes had been exhausted.

Re: 1934 roadster dash

Perhaps your chances will increase if you also consider a '33 phaeton/roadster dash which was the same for both LHD and RHD vehicles along with a early '34 instrument panel insert that was employed...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

It's difficult to be conclusive, but I do not perceive a seam in the glass indicating that it is three layers (two of glass over a center of plastic), which means it is either plate or tempered...

You did exactly what I do to remove the glass from the lower channel, namely a straight length of wood and gentle tapping on the wood alternating sides. There is a special rubber seal...

Re: "Strainer", '40 Coupe Body part?

Strainer is the correct automotive term for the braces, reinforcements, etc., such as those discussed herein. It remains so in current auto industry parlance.

Re: 1932 Roadster - Rubber Goods

Originally, '32 cabriolets, coupes, and roadsters were not equipped with rubber deck/rumble lid seals. Those came into use with the '33 models. The subject seals could be used on your car if you...

Re: 90th Birthday coming up

Lawrie,

No, all '32 V8s had left side exhaust manifolds that were the mirror image of the right side manifold. When the dipstick was moved to the oil pan on the left side it was positioned...

Chris,

Judging from your latest batch of photos, the driver's door glass has been replaced along the way with laminated safety glass. If it were still plate glass, it would have fallen apart by...

Re: 90th Birthday coming up

The early oil pans for blocks with the dipstick in the block on the right side are quite scarce, more so than the so-called flange-block engines themselves.

Re: 32 a400

Sheldon,


The data in the DeAngelis/Francis book is U.S. production only. Worldwide, 154 of the 1,296 convertible sedans produced were powered by Model B four-cylinder engines.

Re: 90th Birthday coming up

Tom,


More likely it would have ended up being a complete vehicle in early May given that its engine was not produced until very late in April, 1932.

Re: 32 a400

It would be an accurate claim if the wording included "passenger car", however, where the 845 figure comes from, who knows? According to Ford's records, there were 1,296 '32 convertible sedans...

Re: Knowing left from right??

'35-'36 rear brake operating levers are, unfortunately in this case, not interchangeable with the '32-'34 versions.

Re: Body / Frame welting...

That it has. "Search this forum" for "32 body to frame webbing" for entry following initial question.. Add to it separate 1/8" thick fabric- reinforced rubber pads for the fuel tank.

Re: 32 a400
