It would sure make this thread more interesting if you could submit a picture of your 3W with your #. If you have trouble posting pics, e-mail them to me and I'll post them: RLP2211@yahoo.com

Also if owners providing info on their '32 3WC could attest to 'Rumble lid' or 'Trunk lid' bodied coupe.....and let's reiterate that the "VIN number" stamped on the frame and/or upper belhousing(4 cylinder) or transmission(V-8) and "BODY number" stamped on the Murray Body Number tag are not the same, not to be confused, or not to be interchanged..... nor do they necessarily correlate....and finally a pix of Murray body tag or at least provide complete Murray body number including B520A or B520B designation....thanks in advance....

My 3 window is #B520B-5714. It's a rumble seat car with late sun visors. As far as I can tell it was manufactured in July of '32. A friend down the street has an original 3 window also but the body tag is missing.

It's been observed that since we have been shown several late production 3Ws and yet the highest body tag # we've found is 12660, that it's probably correct that the B520A and B520B body tag #s each began with 1. I guess we'll know for sure if we run across an A and a B with the same number.

I know this is a little off topic but I am looking for a 32 3 window coupe that is a drivable street rod. I want an original body. How much does it affect the value with or without the serial number tag? How much do fiberglass fenders affect the value? How much can I expect to pay? and anyone know of any for sale? complete or projects? Thanks Steve

There is a 1932 Ford 3Win Coupe currently on EBAY, item number: 281236283911. The listing description includes a Fudgy Serial Number (VIN) and numerous pictures, one of the pictures clearly shows Murray Body Number # B520A - 9948. Do you want to include this on the list?

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

With regard to the comments offered regarding the early '33 phaeton with what was likely a leftover '32 engine, the practice of the new model Job #1s occurring in the third or early fourth quarter of the previous job applies to Ford only after the '33 model year. Job #1 for the U.S. '32 models was March 10th, 1932 and last job in the U.S. was in February, 1933. No '33 model production occurred in the 1932 calendar year. Job #1 was in January, 1933 at the Rouge (even though the Kansas City Plant was still producing '32 models in that month).

The engine production log of the Rouge Plant states that the first '33 model engine was produced on November 14, 1932 with the number 207867. The first '33 engine equipped with aluminum cylinder heads was produced the same day (number 208788 with a 40 prefix, which was used for several days until the prefix reverted to 18). Number 207866 was not the last '32 engine built, however, as likely an additional number were produced that day with numbers between 207868 and 208787. The Rouge Engine plant produced no V-8 engines between November 15 and December 19, 1932.

As for a '32 V-8 engine with a number of approximately 175,000, it would be fair to describe it as fairly late, but certainly not very late.

So, according to Ford's engine production records, a '33 model with an engine number of approximately 175,000 could only represent a leftover '32 engine installed in a '33 chassis. (As for the possibility of the subject '33 being a prototype, all available evidence indicates that Ford was [and remains] ruthless in destroying its prototypes, preventing them from entering the public domain.
