Robert - Who dropped your headlight bar? Looks like a great project...

Who dropped the headlight bar.....donO.....but it was bad. I picked up a total of 3 dropped '32 headlight bars, and non of them were properly done. So, I obtained an original bar, made a jig, reworked them to the proper fender bracket stance and angle, also reshaped the drop to be able to mount the original headlamps. ( not smaller aftermarket buckets ) I guess a lot of this old stuff is not to the quality that we do today. It was a lot of work doing it, but very satisfying at the end.
The nice part of this subject on 'working on a '32 Ford' is the love we have of actually building this car. Enjoying every minute of it....Robert

I have lived with the parts for the Roadster in the pics my whole life . My Dad was always wanting to put the car together but he never was able to . Family and just life always came first . He always wanted a Black Roadster with a tan interior . Although I was not able to get the Roadster to that stage I was able to make it a runner a month ago and we are driving it as much as possible . It's a lot of fun . It actually means more to me with all the colors on the car because that is what I grew up with . The body was the only part that came a little later . He found that from an old High school acquaintance that had stored the body and parts in a barn for 20+ years and never opened the barn the whole time .I was lucky enough to be a part of digging out the door of the barn to get the body out and other parts out. That was in 1984 and I was 14 . It was a great day . I wish my Dad was around today to enjoy his car but he will always be riding with us .
The car has an uncut original frame , Dropped Axle w/un-split wishbone ,a 39 trans a 40 rear end . Basically what Dad wanted was a 50's Hot Rod . About 25 years ago he decided to put a 65 Corvette 365 hp 327 in the car instead of the Flatty . I put it together with what I had but it will get a Flat motor before long . She deserves it ! I have some cool stories of the parts on the car and where they came from . I may do a thread on it someday when I have time . Enjoy !

1932V8......I was at the Father's Day Reunion in Pomona, I sat on the bench facing your car....looked at the different colors and said to myself.."Would be interesting to find out the story on this car". Someone commented on the dropped headlight bar on my project ( even got e-mails on it ) and I did notice that you had a '32 dropped headlight bar that fitted the original headlamps.....and said to myself...."now there's a bar that seems to fit right". Story on this car would be very interesting...do it. A picture is worth a thousand words, but imagination on this car is worth a million. Enjoy and please share........Robert

WOW, some nice 32's!! Being a '33/'34 guy, I really never liked the 32 but when they are done closer to the way Henry rolled em off the line, they are beautiful! Not into the glass '32 street rods! A street rodded 32 really kills the look...in reality, street rods kill the look of many old Fords... and the '32 has been murdered many times over! Keep up the nice clean work fellas!

I really like the green wheels....and the red wheels....and the black wheels.....and my cream wheels aren't bad. Maybe I should get a set of each and swap them out when I get bored

My brother bought it and tore it apart back in '57. Here it is on the street first time since he dragged it home.



A couple of days later, the body got placed on the frame. (Yes, I am a slob, but all that stuff had to be dug out to get the body out of the back shed.)
