Aftermarket or otherwise non-Ford wheels, hubcaps, trunk, and second wiper blade, but otherwise typical '32 Victoria. Even if it was assembled outside of the North America, the body was manufactured in North America.

I think those wheels may be Firestone accessory wheels.

All 4 doors are suicide on the Euro 32. Like an American 33 or 4.

On a 1932 European Ford Victoria as well? The 'mystery' picture is of a '32 Victoria 2 door....

The photo below is of a Briggs-built Dagenham Tudor saloon, which isn't close coupled like a North American Victoria body.

Another giveaway is surely absence of lights on top of front fenders.

The tan Vicky on 16" wheels is an English car, belongs to John Llewellyn. As someone pointed out, no cowl lamps, sidelamps on the wings (fenders). The mystery car has cowl lamps, not legal here.

Graham,


With respect, only the U.K. '32s had fender lamps, regardless of the source of the body. The Briggs-bodied '32 saloons sold throughout Europe were equipped with cowl lamps on the deluxe versions or where required by local lighting requirement.
