Believe me, the '34 is absolutely gorgeous......AS IS! But then again, that lowered-lid on the 3-window in your avatar ain't too shabby, either. DD

yes, the story on that 32 was really interesting. It had a huge blown motor, in the 70's, while under full pedal, the frame twisted, it crashed on a bridge, and was totaled. A '32 collector from the Central Valley got it, and slowly tapped out the metal by hand into what you see there, with an original mint 25 louver hood. I have a bunch of photos somewhere...

WOW, what attention to detail, the fender skirts are the cherry on top, i have been trying to find a set for over a year now without luck. The glove box door clock is also a lovely detail. What an exceptional car.

Would love to see the photos of your 32, and hear the story. Is the the
coupe that three brothers rolled in Madera years ago? Rich

Guys, just putting the word out that I will be selling this 34 Three Window. The skirts are not included, but the matching teardrop trailer is. throwing it out there for 125k. The thrill of aquiro g the car, researching and finding all the NOS parts, restoring them , and documenting the whole car has been the thrill for me. hopefully the next owner will enjoy it. Thank you

That car is incredibly beautiful!
I am getting ready to start a 33 3 window project myself. Question,
Where did the skirts come from? I have been searching for some for my 33.

Thanks and congratulations!

I bought the skirts about 10 years ago while buying a '34. They are in fantastic shape, a vet dents that I had repaired, and redone when restoring this car. I have been asked to sell them often but have declined. I think the most amazing part of them is the strange non-Ford designed chrome V8 emblem.

Just getting started on my '31 town sedan, hope it takes me four years to get her done (don't want it to end to soon) also hope it looks half as nice as your beauty.
Congrats good job.........now go out and drive her.
