Default Re: 32 Roadster pick up

Doubt that it has had a warrant for many years ; maybe an ex farm hack?
Still cannot see any remains of Phaeton bodywork beyond door pillar. All the Phaetons from Aussie came in from '70's for rods or resto's & you would hardly import a chopped off one as no rear tubs here.
Regarding the one new recorded '32 Phaeton, a Model A friend in ChCh saw one parked near his workplace in about '68-'69. A lot of early Fords were being shipped out by US Servicemen at Deep Freeze Base, ChCh at that time. No matter, they are all returning via ebay now. There is one near me that the guy has actually hand made the rear doors ,floor, rear tub using original cowl, fenders etc into a Phaeton. He is a real old time craftsman & is known as the man who has owned the most '32's in NZ.
