Re: '32 V8 cast aluminum oil pan

Went and took some pictures, oil tray is 15 n 7/8s long by 6 n 1/4 wide. Appears to have 4 non-stock holes punched thru down the middle. Otherwise good healthy example.

Re: 1932 3 window seat tracks

The 32 3W seat tracks (pair) are symmetrical, they are interchangeable from side to side. Hard to take detail pics of black parts. Anyway hope this helps.
