A good friend has one of these gems...his reg says '35. The car came here after WWII
and passed thru many east coast owners. Bill has owned it for 25 + years and rather
than rebuild the tiny 4 banger he installed a tin side V8 60 and trans along with a narrowed
and shortened V8 60 rear end. I'll dig out some pics. I was thrilled to sort out the bugs once the heavy lifting was done.

The Y was Bob Gregories 1st complete design project after he went to work for Ford back in 1931. The design was upscaled for use as the basis for the 1933 models.

Thanks for sharing Sheldon! An interesting mix of our Model 40, Model A wheels and '32 bumpers and taillights. Nice looking car! Wish it was a little closer to us.

Stay Safe,
Pat

That is an early one, not as early as the one in the ad. Later cars had a longer grille with the crank hole going through rather than below it. Nice cabriolet body, don't think it's factory body.

I tried to up load the ad as part of my above post BUT FB "failed" to upload, then tried to up load from my "SpI Phone" and have a "security tolken" missing SO this is the best I can offer OF the "Original German Ad" Sorry for the poor quality but it gets the point across
