https://www.saratogaautoauction.org/vehicles/results
Well someone got a deal. Because of COVID public was not allowed at auction so I didnít get to watch.

That seems to be the going price for a 4dr.There has been a '33 4dr advertised here,on the HAMB and V8 Website $25K and reduced to $22K but hasn't sold.

I'm surprised that the price was that high for a 4 door.

I was scrolling thru all the results and a lot of them did seem high. I think some of the proceeds go to support the museum. I’m Surprised lot#321 56 Ford went for that much, it very rusty underneath.

I have a lot of 1 seat cars but when I want to take people with once in a while(which is more fun) you need 2 seats. I find the 4 drs in the young hot rod family more than the old men in hot rod family. Especially 32ís. Try to go to a car lot today and find a 2dr car.

That 46 woodie seemed like a reasonable price for what looked like a nice car. Other prices seemed high.

Yep the downward trend in the prices of vintage cars continues .
Doesn't matter where you are in the world . My 34 Fordor was brought for NZ$65,000 5 years ago and at the time it was thought I got the steal of the decade -A very similar car recently sold (with difficulty) for a little over NZ$50,000. I actually like the Fordor as I do a lot of motoring and it is much more practical for long trips and holidays. Years ago I considered my car collection as an investment and a source of pleasure -Its now mostly the latter

It's the old 30 year rule. Today's old car buyer does not look to relive driving around with his grandpa in a '34 ford. It was an early bronco, and today sells for twice what the '34 gets. I saw in the latest Hagerty magazine that a low mile original '88 toyota landcruiser wagon just went for 84,000.00 at auction. That's an 'old car' today.

As I said before, if I was in this old car hobby for the money I would sell them all right now because the selling price will only continue down. But I am not, and my son can give them away if he wants to (which I doubt) after I am gone.

You guys that think that was a high price, I think it was on target. I am weird though. I imagine myself in 1933 and given I have a kid, two dogs and a wife I would walk into a ford dealer and buy a phaeton or a 4 door. I have a few somewhat rare fords but my 33 4 door (avatar photo) is my favorite of all of them. My opinion is more doors are more fun! I lose interest in 4 doors after 1934.

To me a 32-34 Ford 4 door sedan unlike later years has great styling.

I can’t believe someone hasn’t bought that 1933 on the V-8 Club site

Yep , for sure the 1933-34 Ford four door sedan is a very smart looking car and much more practical than a coupe or a roadster. Bonnie and Clyde will vouch for that because plenty of room for food, blankets and guns and ammo in the back seat. That auction car in the USA at $23,000 was a bargain. Try buying one in Australia that hasnt been hot rodded at that price, more like double that price. A great car for sure. Regards, Kevin.

Maybe you and I should team up on the import/export of diesel landcruisers this way and early 30s fords that way......Oh, never mind I have my hands full with all these fords and like so many here I just love them.

The 1934 model year was the last year Ford incorporated four 'suicide' doors - a thing of beauty to behold when all four are open....

Yep. Our '32's are fun and also "cozy". Our formula for entry is Foot, Butt, other foot and try not to damage the kick panel. Hard to do when a size 12 shoe comes into play. Once in with your passenger it is indeed up close and personal. I've always preferred 4 doors and frankly am surprised they aren't in higher demand. When I was about 16 my Uncle bought a '39 Four door standard. I remember getting in the drIvers seat, putting the seat all the way aft, then getting out and sitting in the back seat. There was still ample room to stretch one's legs. It is indeed enjoyable to include more than one passenger on a cruise, especially for grandkids. They love the rumble seat but they are not allowed in it in modern traffic.
