I'm sorry to report that I'm doing a very poor job of carrying out my declaration a few years ago that, "I ain't buying any more cars." I made that bold statement to my pals on a Thursday night at York in 2015. By noon the next day, or there abouts, I had bought a 32 3w coupe! I'm still tweaking on that one to look more traditional but haven't done the interior yet... I was hoping someone would buy it so I wouldn't have to. Anyway, the latest failure on my part came from somebody posting a link to a car that was for sale that seemed like a good value. Being a good on-line hot rodder, I clicked on it... you know how it turned out! It is traveling via a shipper right now and hope to see it sometime in the coming week. I'll have a better knowledge of just what I've purchased when it gets here but I feel pretty good about it. What? I think I hear the ghost of 3WLarry yelling about, "Where's the dang pictures?!" To continue, it is a pretty rare bird for a number of reasons but the biggest might be that it was in the same family for 75 years. A guy bought it on May 5, 1942 and kept it until he passed in 1996 and then it stayed in the family until the end of last year. He traded in a roadster for the coupe. Yep, it was a 3w coupe which he later drove to NY to marry this gal he met in the NAVY and drove her back to Spokane. At least that's the story as I understand it right now... like all stories, they are subject to being revised! I'm still on the trail of tracking and documenting the history of the car but it is very interesting. Here's the car in NY in front of his wife's parents house I believe. And a close up in memory of Larry. The owner later, and I haven't gotten a clue yet about how much later other than to know it was done by 1961; swapped the 3w body for a very good cabriolet body that he got from somewhere. Yep, I wonder where that 3w body went, too! The owner was a pretty good mechanic if not a great one according to some folks I have already talked to. The car has a neatly narrowed 40 Ford dash for starters and it had a Y block Ford engine in it in 1961. Anybody got any more info on the car? Apparently I bought it just in the nick of time as I think a couple folks were standing in the wings and getting ready to pull the trigger but my money got there first via bank wire. One of them has already reached out to me to be next in line if I ain't happy or change my mind. Haven't had that happen before so it must be a pretty good car as he managed to get someone local to check it out "in the flesh." I'll share more of the story as I speak with others and go over my notes. Apparently the owner worked with another guy at the same company and that guy had a 32 cabriolet, too! That guy kept his, too, until he passed away a few years back. His was green and I've been told the two cars were often seen together. I was fortunate to locate the present owner of the green car and am not sure just what his plans are for that car but that will be his story to tell. I hope nobody gets upset that I'm planning on new tires and wheels right away. I'm not fond of the wheels and suspect that the tires are really old.
