Re: 35 Ford Exterior Door Handle

Judging from Don's illustration from the hardware catalog the inside door handles in the rear compartment attach directly to the ends of the shanks of the outside door handles whereas in the front...

Re: Ford GT 2018 $1125000 BJ just now

Right, wimpy-ass for sure at only 647 HP and 550 ft.lbs. of torque pushing a 3,100 lb. vehicle; winner of its class at LeMans first time out. Eat your heart out.

Re: Color question - light winterleaf or not?

The phaeton in your photos is a pretty good match for the original '32 color, Winterleaf brown-light, but a tad on the bland side. The moldings should be painted Winterleaf brown-dark as original to...

Re: 35 roadster arm rests

If you're interested in originality, '35 roadsters were not equipped with arm rests.

Re: 34 tool storage?

It was a tool box for coupes, cabriolets, and roadsters, but the original question regarded a Tudor sedan. The engine compartment tool boxes are handy, for sure, but they are length limited inside...

Re: '32 Rear hood latch location

The two sides are mirror images of one another; there's no dimensional difference.

Re: '32 Rear hood latch location

Pat,


They are not parallel to the frame, but rather parallel to the hood side panel which at the cowl end is outboard of the frame and at the front end it is on top of the frame. Your second...

Re: 34 Ford Caboriolet

The Fords sold in South America during the '30s were either wholly or largely of U.S. manufacture and without exception all of the engines used in those cars and trucks were produced at the Rouge...

Re: Left 1932 Engine Tin

Pat,


Not at all unheard of; I'm still seeking a right side '33 V8 pan and expect no bargain when one turns up.

Re: 1932 Ford 4 cylinder engine tins question

Fairly rare, but not unheard of; for example six of seven of the more or less original '32s in the Regehr auction in Kansas later this week still have their engine splash pans intact, both fours and...

Re: Left 1932 Engine Tin

If you find a nice, completely intact pair of '32 V8 engine splash pans for $400, that would be at the low end of the range of what they sell for (which is not often as they were often discarded...

Re: 34 tool storage?

I had LeBaron Bonney make pouches for all the tools including the jack, but any upholsterer could do that for you; no more rattles or paint chips.

Re: 34 tool storage?

Under the rear seat cushion with the small items as well. The space behind the rear seat back was intended for luggage, etc. (a small amount of it:D).

Re: '32 Cabriolet Front Roof Rail

The book in the photo appears to be the 1936 or 1938 edition of Ford's Hardware and Trimming Supplies catalog. As hop up notes the two versions on that page are the '33-'34 and the '35-'36. The '32...

Re: 1933 1934 ford Accessories duel temp fuel gauges info

Re: '32 Cabriolet Front Roof Rail

With respect, cups, what cups? Do you mean the dowel pins at the top of the windshield structure of the cowl?

Re: connector sleeve for choke rod

I deliberately take them apart to have the non-knob portion re-cadmium plated and use the original connecting sleeve and if I can't get a tight enough crimp, I use JB Weld as Don recommends.

Re: 32 BB 4 cyl. rear motor mount.

There were no engine steady rods on the '32 BB fours, hence no brackets for the rods on the upper bell housing, rather as you surmised, only on passenger car and commercial vehicle fours.

Re: 1932 Ford 4 cylinder engine tins question

Here's a photo of the most common variety from the V8 Club book that Charlie cites. Note the slot to clear the brake rod in a serious front spring jounce. Model B engine splash pans seem to have...
