Two of 17 3W brought in to NZ the original one has been in the same family since 1937 and the hot rod has been a hot rod longer than it was original , sorry no numbers on these. lots of history right here. Both flathead and 3 speed with banjo axles.

BODY TAG NUMBER 260

Hi guys, Andy Anderson here from California. I just traded my all-steel '34 Ford roadster for a jewell I found in the northwest. I obtained a '32 3W from a 76 year old man. He tried to obtain the car when he was in his 20's. A hoarder had the car and 11 other 32's. He finally bought the car in 1986 (I believe). Every single part was there except it had Guide headlights. He took it home and restored it into a modern style street-rod. The car stills retains the original body tag. It is body tag number 260. The body was manufactured in Canada.

The Canadian bodies have their own numbering that is not based on assigned blocks of numbers from the US. It is therefore misleading to include #260 (from post #124) in sequence with what are otherwise all US body numbers.

DavidG, they are not all US body numbers as several of the tag #s have been reported as Canadian bodies. I'll try to identify the ones I know of. I know the title says Murray Body #, but since it's more importantly a list of numbered Deuce 3W bodies with original tags, and so as not to jeopardize international relations, I'll leave the Canadian Top & Body Corp. #s mixed in with the list.

Talking Re: 1932 Ford Deluxe 3W, Murray Body # informal registry, how many are still around?

True Barn Find! My Dad heard of a 32 3 window coupe, suicide doors, rumble seat, mohair interior in a barn in Southern WI in 1978. He talked the farmer, original owner into selling it. My father and my mother scrounged up all the money they could to purchase it as the second owners. It was my fathers pride and sat as a project car on our garage. Tragically my father was killed by a drunk driver in 1981. The 32 sat for four more years in our garage until my mom remarried in 1985. At that time we moved the 32 to MN where it has sat for the 34 years.It has been in storage as it was purchased in 1978 until July 4, 2019. It will now be brought to my garage in early August. I will get the number off the car in when it arrives. My sons and I can now take on my fathers pride!

Your father would be proud of you. I would shake your hand if I was there. We all here on the Ford Barn will help you what we can. When you get the 32 you must show us pictures and do take it to the National meet when you can. A good place to learn. Do get Dave Rehor Books on 32 Fords. This is a must do. God Bless and thanks.
