I just learned that my pen pal, David Morris (tiger.1000 herein) in the U.K. passed away on Saturday. He will be remembered as a frequent contributor here regarding the many components that he made...

Re: 1932 Radiator Cap

As with the extensive list of components that Ford did not manufacture itself, in almost every instance they used at least two and sometimes more than two outside suppliers to make the components to...

Re: 1932 Radiator Cap

The addition of the R to the part number suffix indicates it was produced as a service part post-vehicle production or for servicing a previous version of the adjacent part, in this case the...

Re: 32 grill shell

No can do at the present time as I am far away from my indoor junkyard, but notwithstanding, I would not use the grill bar spacing as a way to distinguish an original from a reproduction as I think...

Re: Did I hear this correctly???

It's Edsel Ford II and yes, he is the son of Henry Ford II. And if you read the link in #2 above you will note that neither is new and both have been modified to a considerable extent. (That...

Re: 34 fan question

The longer hub fan that you cite is either a '32 or '37 fan depending on the shape of the blades. I doubt if either will work on a '34 with an original intake manifold, generator, and radiator. I...

Re: 1932 1933 1934 truck restoration or hot rod

Hop up,


Having an early cab with the non-removable roof and brace-less visor is consistent with the chassis. About all we haven't covered is the cowl vent, which likely is an early version as...

Re: 34 starter switch

Since most of the them on offer are either NOS or NORS, there's a fair chance that they actually work.

Re: 1932 1933 1934 truck restoration or hot rod

Your truck has a very early chassis frame, not the first version, which had no 'legs' on the center cross member to form a K, but the second iteration. The purpose of those pieces riveted to the...

Re: Early intake manifold

Either '32 or '33 depending on how the generator was attached, assuming the manifold was for a single barrel carburetor.

Re: 1932 1933 1934 truck restoration or hot rod

That color (golden orange) was a standard color choice for '32 and '33 commercial vehicles. It will eventually have black DT&I (Henry's railroad) logos on its doors.

Re: 34 front fenders assembly

Mart,


Very observant! Yes, only one bolt goes all the way into the D nuts in the grille itself. There are recesses in the grille perimeter to clear the heads of the other two fasteners per...

Re: WHO Is the Oldest Early V8 Forum Member?

I'll help bump the average back up. 81 plus and my first car was a '32 Ford (surprise, surprise) Model B standard coupe for $50. It was comparable to the one on another recent thread herein, only...

Heresy, but the Cadillac powered Allards had a lot more umph.

Re: Original 1932 Standard Coupe up for auction

My first car was a $50 B standard coupe like this one back in 1955 and I've had three more of them since. I'm with Robert; I like them just as they were built.

Here's a phone showing the apron on a super-low-mileage '33 roadster (all original paint, upholstery, and even the top).
