It looks like it at least had the intake and carburetor replaced since it has a two barrel carb on it. '32 V8's came with a one barrel Detroit Lubricator carb. It is a 21 stud engine though.

How sad. Looks like another death by hoarding. As stewards of this wonderful commodity, you would hope that these people would do a better job of taking care of it. In any case, it's great that this stash has been rescued.

Here are a couple of pictures of the 1935 Roadster that I bought out of this collection. Good old complete car with the same raccoon problems that nospartsman talked about. May sell to buy the 1936 Cabriolet out of the same collection?

Sadly the 1936 roadster (sold) and the 1936 club cabriolet (unsold) were stored "OUTSIDE" and the club cabriolet is really very rough. I didn't see the roadster but I saw the very rough club cab, no frame to speak of.

That 32 is just plain cool! No floors at all? Fred Flintstone would consider it done and drive it to work tomorrow. But seriously, you will get over the high price very soon and realize you own something really special.

PETA is going to have you by the short hairs when they find out you put racoons out on the street.

I need to get a magnifying glass to see if the frame agrees. In 80+ years a lot can happen to a car so who knows for sure.

Indicative perhaps of the 'don't know when to stop car disease.'

Do you know how much this sold for?

Congratulations on your 32, it will not matter how much you paid for it, even over in the land of plenty you have played your part in a great adventure and in saving the car from certain death.
I love threads like this, from this side of the atlantic situations like having cars like those discovered and come on to the market is really only a dream. I have saved all the photos to fuel my own dreams!
Thanks for posting and good luck. looking forward to more photos (please!)
Gordon.
