    Why do you think the Fordor uses a different frame? The only differences are related to engineering changes, I think there were three, maybe four front cross members, the transmission 'member did not originally have the front, angled legs that made it into the so-called K member, strengthening pieces were added to prevent bending the rails at the rear kick up and there were two different rear crossmembers, a narrow one was recessary to fit when those braces were fitted inside the rails. In addition there were detail changes to some holes to mount the steering box.

  6. All of the passenger cars and light pickups used the same frame. The frame however did evolve slightly during the production year.

    The question was how many of the different body styles do you or have you owned. My reply was that with the exception of the Fordor I have had all of them including the commercial cars which are the open cab p.u., closed cab p.u., sedan delivery, panel delivery, and station wagon. I do not think the Fordor has a different frame.

    I found this larger file. If you squint just right you can make some of the words.

  12. I currently own three 5W's, one 3W, one cabriolet, one pickup, one Fordor, and one Brookville roadster.

    I have owned and traded or sold one glass roadster, two 5W's, one topless Tudor tub, two Tudors, two 5W's and three Fordors.

    I never could afford the really rare ones.

    I've known a few guys that have had close to hundred Deuces pass through their hands!

    I had a rough Victoria body, selling it was the right thing to do at the time, hope to have a complete running one some day. UPDATE, I forgot the Westcott glass Roadster from back in the late 1970's, the body cost $2,200 DELIVERED to Connecticut. Had it on a stock chassis that cost me $120.00 at the Bennington, Vt. swap meet. Still have the original grill insert I swapped the new floor mats out of my Dad's month old '61 Ford when I was 10 years old, will I ever have a running '32 to put it in? Bob
