I don't want to turn this into a pissing match (though I'm getting ready to fuel it), so I'll leave it with this thought....for those who say we should've started with a Brookville 3w, I would debate that you could not build one for what an original car cost - and think about it before you refute it.....paint, interior, door handles, firewall, tack strip moldings (let's not forget that no one makes an exact steel reproduction) and all of those small pieces, not to mention all of the time invested getting those parts to fit together in a somewhat presentable manner. At the end of the day, it's a Brookville 3w, and not a Ford 3w (and that's coming from someone who owns a Brookville roadster).

Yes the cry original once is correct but it can be returned back to stock if deemed so. I guess I just appreciate one mans version of what increasing the drive ability of an early Ford is. Get off it!
Thanks Gary

Thanks Gary for the great coverage of your awesome '32 3W coupe build...If you show an original car the spectators will take a quick look then walk away. If you show this car they will keep looking at each upgrade and how it was done. It is way more interesting and generates 10X the conversation And now it is HIS Ford Coupe, not Henry's Ford Coupe.
