Re: 32' v8 exhaust....?

That's the right pipe. These days I have the entire exhaust system powder coated with high temp flat black, but there are some good spray-on/brush-on high temp paints out there as well to use after...

Re: 32' v8 exhaust....?

Nope, not there yet. You have to add one of the two short S-shaped pipes (that are at the bottom of your earlier photo) at the back end of your photo on the right. The back end of the long pipe in...

Re: 1932 Ford Panel Truck

Not that I have photos of both, but which configuration are you seeking? The hinged passenger seat used with the large fuel tank or the free-standing passenger seat used with the small fuel tank?

Re: 32' v8 exhaust....?

Regarding the pipes in your photos, it appears that you have two of the correct long tail pipe sections (at the top of the first photo) and two of the matching short tail pipe sections at the bottom...

Re: Installing a 32' Roadster Body

A minor thing, but judging from your photos you are planning to use an original front license plate bracket as it is already painted and ready to go. When installed on the front cross tube it would...

Re: Installing a 32' Roadster Body

Correct, the spring should not be installed at that point of the body installation as it will not properly clear that which is behind the instrument panel. Good point.


The phaetons and...

Re: Top iron identification

Karl.


The front bracket looks right, agreed, but '33-'34 phaeton irons don't have two long pieces attached to the forward-most long piece attached to that bracket.

Re: Installing a 32' Roadster Body

The fuel/air line as Michael mentions and the tail lamp wiring as Bored&Stroked mentioned plus the exhaust system. Installing the gas tank on a '32-'34 passenger car chassis before the body is not...

Re: FORD vs FERRARI

The build up of the armed forces was well under way and enormous amounts of armaments and other essential goods were being sent to England under the Lend/Lease program.

Re: '33 tire cover outer band

If the origin of the car that the band came off was Ford of France, the color choices were not the same as in the U.S., even though the body was of North American origin.

Re: Cowl lights- AV8 Roadster

Sadly, at least half the drivers on the road today are clueless when it comes to hand signals. Some even interpret them as urging them to pass. I've seen some scary things happen to bicycle riders...

Re: Tranny info and test?

With respect, given that vehicle in question is a '32, there is no option regarding the removal of a transmission once installed. It cannot be removed to the rear because of the design of the...

Originally the 1/16" x 2" webbing was held in place with brass grommets used on several of the larger holes in the chassis frame. It was centered on the frame so that both the outer and inner edges...
