The sales figures I have for Australian built 1934 Ford roadsters are, 4cyl. 93 and V8 520 for a total of 613. The total for 1933 and 1934 combined is 1038 roadsters approx. Regards, Kevin.

Just to add to Kevins info, from somewhere I have 468 in 1933 & 570 in '34 giving the same total 1038. Production from mid '33 into early '35.

The information I have posted in post #3 was compiled several years ago by two Ford enthusiasts direct from sales legers which were once held in the Ford factory, Geelong, Victoria. These leather bound legers listed company sales to their Ford dealers. They were not production figures as such. No official Geelong factory production figures have ever been found. These sales figures are the closest we are ever going to get to the numbers of vehicles produced. As for the figures posted by Tudortomnz we don't have any verification where they came from, so at this stage I would deem them as most likely incorrect. Regards, Kevin.

Do the earlier (ie 33 & 34) have the number "stamped" in the left top of the firewall like the 35 ute does???
