    I want to get some idea what an original 32 Ford 5 window coupe frame is worth. The frame is from a period 32 hot rod with the original front axle, 55 chevy rear end, and set-up for small block chevy. I know its never been wrecked. thanks

    A photo is worth a thousand words, a frame without a photo is any ones guess.

    Sorry I don't have a photo and its 500 miles away from me.
  4. sounds like the frame has been modified ...hard to tell the quality of the work and what parts are usable without seeing it

    i will guess between $500 to $10,000

    Without pics and as a rolling chassis , I will take a stab at this. I would not pay more than $1,200.00.

    Check ebay and craigs list. There's been a couple of frames removed from running cars in LA that were listed from $8500 to 10000. A buddy just sold a '70's roller with a v6 and parallel rear springs for $1800.

    If it still has the original K member those alone bring huge money.

    Uncut K-member $600 on average, uncut bare frame $1000 ^, hacked up frame $100 ^, '55 Chevy rear has less desirable small axle bearings, it will still work and there are plenty of gear ratios available but also how is the rear suspension?, the front suspension depends on a lot- brakes, spindles, dropped or stock axle, radius rods, steering.

    Does it have a Title and,if so,do the numbers match the title? Sometimes a matching numbers title can add a few thousand to the value of a GOOD 32 frame.

  10. It's worth what you finally take in price from the buyer...
    Nothing has value, until it is sold.

    I'll buy every $1,000 uncut bare 32 frame you can find ... Also any hacked $100 1932 frame aswell

    So you have never seen an uncut, but heavily pitted and/or bent up frame before, huh? Or a butchered frame with no front or rear horns, no k-member and a bunch of holes drilled in it?
    Cheap pricing doesn't have to mean a good, primo piece, it only guarantees a cheap asking price. That was the reason for the $1000 and up mention.

    The LARS had several decent bare Deuce chassis for sale. Bare frames I saw were from a high of $7500 to a low of $1500. The best one I saw was $3500 with no damage and not pitting. If you are a hot rodder you can't beat a SO-CAL chassis ready to go for $3000.

    Did some kid learn to gas or stick weld on it 50 years ago? I paid $600. for two original rails with an original factory frame number, two towns away. It was worth that to me, but needs rust repair work, I'm still happy with the deal. Bob
  15. really don't want to see a picture of a $100 - 1932 - dirt track frame......had more motors in it than Greta Garbo....sorry fans of GG.........
