    Does anybody know how many were actually produced? Trying to find photo of a real one to compare repos. If you have a photo could you post it?

    I've got parts of one, but they are buried deep in the warehouse. I think around 500 produced in '32, even less in '33, and a handful in '34.

    The re-pops are COMPLETELY different than the originals(if you're thinking of the Brookville).

    This is a real one, as far as I know:
    [​IMG]

    These 3 are all "sorta repops" -- they are not literal copies of a '32 RPU, but are built to resemble a '32 roadster (non-pickup) in style:

  6. From what I have researched since wanting one;
    1932 593 all 4 cyl (no V-8's in 32 roadster PU)
    1933 202 4 cyl
    308 V-8
    1934 248 4 cyl
    99 V-8

    The three pictured that look like roadsters may be repops, but there is some history to this style. My friend has one like this that is original. He bought it in California from someone who imported it from Australia but it was originally built right here in Windsor Ontario Canada. It was well used down under to the point where the top of the front crossmember was worn right through and the top leaf was held in place by the bottom of the rad! Not exactly the best way to drop the front end. Neat car! It has real roadster doors, cowl and windshield. The box continues on from the body - not a separate box, but does use regular Deuce fenders. I have a pic somewhere of it before it was taken apart. I'll try to find and post it

    Ragtop, If you mean a roadster ute, yeh they were made here, the first factory made year was 34 I thought, My friend has an A model roadster ute that was built from a tourer, probably when the car was still new-ish, but if a 32 was made as well, id love to see the photos.

    Ben,
    Roadster utes were made in 28-29, I have some pretty nackered ones. They were also made right through to at least 37. Over the years they've all been rodded and featured in Australaian Street rodding.

    There's a 32 roadster ute featured in a mag out here - it has a Mcculloch blown flathead, and a jag rear, and tru-spoke wires. I wish I could remember which mag ti was in.

    did they have a passenger car grille from the factory? I can't see all the pictures on my work computer due to blocks.

    post pictures AFTER you buy it and its parked in your garage.

    someone may recognize the car and scoop it from under you.
    they are rare enough to make some people act like assholes. ;)

    There were lots of big trucks too that used that body. Many dump truck pictures I've seen use the open cab, which makes no sense to me at all except that they were the cheapest of all the configurations. Those old construction trucks didn't last very long.

    Very nice, although not a real '32 roadster pickup..........
     
  16. This is an original Type 302 (?) '32 roadster ute with the cut down sides (the one Stovebolt mentioned above). Type 304 had the reveal all the way to the back.

    and a '32 tourer for a bit of comparison (this tourer was actually a uted tourer Hot Rod in the 60s)

    lowsquire, '34 was the first coupe ute.

    If you're looking for a REAL roadster pickup, do a search for Jeff Norwell's Diamond Deuce.

    Mike, If I remember right Neal built this body using a pickup cab. I think there was a build thread about it. Anyway, I'm sure he'll come back on and tell us for sure.

  20. Yes, Neal used a p/u cab to do that. Nice job in my opinion. In fact I have a cab set aside to do the same thing to but I'll stretch the cabin a bit.

    I have a collection of original ford motor company publicity photos of the l932 ford models, one of which is a roadster pick-up. It is commercial in every way except it has a passenger car grille and shell and passenger car headlights. Also have a photo of a deluxe delivery which is a panel truck with car headlights and car grille and shell also.

    Frank, now that you mention it, I think I remember. Isn't it the one with the beautifully finished flathead?....I hope things are well with you.

    Hi Charlie,
    I just told Frank that I remember seeing Neal's beauty in a thread that showed his beautifully finished flathead.....I've still got your Cadillac wheels and tires.

  24. Mike,

    I need to make a special trip down your way some free Saturday morning - before summer fades away on us.

    Have any more of the full fendered one with the hemi? I like it!
     
  26. Those of you in Southern California have probably seen this one around for a few years
    The only thing wrong with it is its not in my garage
