Default 34 3 Window Coupe - Barn Find

I just pulled this 3 Window out of the barn, stored there since 1958. It originally had a trunk but now has a rumble seat lid with hinges attached to the lid. I don't think there are any brackets or whatever attached to the body. What else do I need? Where can I get the parts? I see that several places have the parts for the 5 Window but specify that they are not for the 3 Window.


ALSO: Does anyone have a useable take out interior for this car? I may be interested!

That's a very highly sought after 34 3 window. The fenders, running boards, lights etc. are common to all body styles, the rear panel is (could be wrong here) coupe only. (Not at all sure on that).
What I'm saying is that you can search for parts from other models than a 3W coupe.

The rumble lid hinges are not at the lower edge, they are down inside the sides, they are available as repro., as might be most parts you need.

Great find ,at the sides of the trunk you should have two side panels with five holes in them this takes the diamond shape part of the hinge, that joins the A bracket shape that's screwed to the lid ,its common to both three and five window ,

You are very lucky. That car is a '34 (or '33) three-window (which is better than a '36 I should know; I had one of each). It is an excellent car, but you should try to find out all you can about it until you know what you really have.

I hate to have to say this, but if you can't tell the difference between a Model 40 and a Model 68, you should try to hook up with some local old Ford guys so you can do this car justice.

I have a feeling the 36 was a typo with all the brewster cars he owns

Put it back with the trunk lid. You won't be sorry.

Agree with TJ, my avatar roadster body had a rumble when I got it and I wish I had switched it with ALL the metal work I had to do with it. Oh well.

The rumble seat hinge components are common with the 5-window, cabriolet, and roadster. There was no outside handle on the coupes and cabriolet, only on the roadster. The latch is controlled inside the cab right behind the package tray on the right side. The coupe and cabriolet lids are spring assisted and when properly adjusted will gently open the lid fully when the latch is deactivated inside the car.

I'd guess that a strainer to support the upper back panel and lid latch attached thereto was not added. PM me if you want photos of the various components involved if you are interested in retaining a rumble seat.

Because of the number of hobbyists who prefer trunks to rumble seats, anything not reproduced is normally easy to obtain as take-offs.

Wash it off and Get the mechanical parts going. Drive it for a few years. If you want to do more, then do it. Have a plan, Oh wait... YOU won't, judging by your others in a picture. (I don't know you) Congratulations!!!





To all. Did they have trunk lid options in 32-34????
