Default Build your own deuce from simple Atoms!

UPDATE! Now with Model A supplement!

Plans below!
I've been digging into Ford stuff on Google patents lately. Surprisingly few, mostly filed long ater parts were in use, many cover broad designs rather than the sort of minute detail oft seen in patents. They provide GREAT pictures, sometimes of actual parts, sometimes of pre-production, slightly strange bits. Below is a beginning collection of patents relating directly to the 1932 Ford. Study carefully...you will see many interesting non-production items in seemingly familiar parts. Just go to Google Patents (http://www.google.com/advanced_patent_search ) and paste the number given into the appropriate search line.
For searching, I set a fairly broad range before and after production date in the application and make "Ford Motor" the assignee. You'll find stuff you want, interesting random stuff, airplane bits, production tools...

WOW!

I was in a yard outside Junction City, Kansas when I spotted an unusual independent front suspension set-up on a car in the older (1930s) GM area. I have no clue what the car was but I just spent an hour searching Patents and found these,

Air Bags (2133279)
Split I-beams w/ rack and pinion (2085006)
Unibody construction (2157649)
and a weird style clothes pin (2166884)

There are loads more all from just typing "Suspension" in the search bar and with the years specified as 1900-1940

One of the neat things about searching Ford stuff is that you bump into both Trimotor period and WWII aviation stuff, wild experimental engines (Flat, 2 stroke, opposed piston, FI, OHC...) and the reallydamnwild stuff that was considered for the Zephyr line, not just the expected flatheadiana. Ford was actually messing with 4-wheel independent torsion bar suspension as his next paradigm shift, but then he up and died and Ford hired a regiment of GM managers to replace him...

bruce

you'll know this answer.

I have a ford latch.. thats pat# 1.771.737

which I found in the database however the image of the latch is wrong..

then I noticed a RE- 19.223

which I think is a reissued patent?

is there a way to search the RE? and does that indicate that the patent was reissued?

Where is the RE number? Couldn't spot it. Noticed Serial number...wonder what searching that would do??

I'd start by searching all possible forms and spacings of those numbers...
Then I'd go to advanced Google and search Reissued patents (with searches recognizing the possible spacing after RE too), including one search limited to .gov domain in hope of finding patent office explanation. Then find actual patent office home page...there will be some sort of contact info, and with luck you'll connect to a super-geek who knows every wrinkle in the nomenclature.

That can be found typed thus RE19223...still don't see it in original patent and have not figured out either meaning or linkage yet!

The aftermarket of course is in there...try people names, company names, and such as assignee or inventor...and fo many things, natural language that does NOT work for Ford Motor co. stuff works fine in the aftermarket: Ford V-8, Ford V8, Model A Ford and variants, etc.
Some finds:
2550223 Fifty HAMBers wouyld buy this at once...
2362493 Dude, do you mean"supercharger" or "Choke"??
2507747 He got a patent for THAT?? It had already been in German Ford trucks for 15 years, and people MADE them out of old coils...
2139666 Been there...
2354778 Get your flathead ready for the gas crisis!
2568788 See...you're not the first one to break that thing!
2298408 Poor bastard patented this just as Ford went to bolt-on...
2279190 Fram patents the 45 degree angle!
3559397 Who's Bernard J. Navarro??
1699260 Ed WHO?
2074487 Not a flathead...not...

I have a complete set of patent books from the year 1940 and I really haven't searched much, but I guess I will now.
