Ryan!! We need You Tube embed's please. Even though most of this group don't know how to add a photo ;~'))
Thanks for posting this one. I have the movie Girl Crazy (1943).

1932 Ford Phaeton

I watched this one today just to see this Ford I had almost forgot about. At first you want to think, "What a heap." But they make the car look worse than what it is. Body looks pretty straight. No hood sides allows the veiwer to see the flathead. Appears to be the only car in town in this movie. It is in a lot of scenes. And Judy Garland actually drives it in many of the scenes. And when it is sitting still, she can be seen gently and probably unconsciously moving the stick shift side to side to prove to herself the idling car was in neutral while she said her lines.
