This showed up at the shop today. Really cool.
If it's a gennie you have one of the most rare '32's ever produced. What's the story..............gonna build it into a hot rod? Closer look at the picture makes me think it's already had the resto-rod treatment.................yes or no?
We are just doing a couple little things to it. Danny said it's one of 3 in Texas. Yes it is rare. I've never seen one in person or a picture of one. Only illustrations. It is rodded already.
Shit what a sweet car....what is the actual color?
There was a kid in San Jose that had one. He had a body shop remove the 'B' pillar and trim down the rear surround, the windshield frame was chopped 3 or 4". He ended up with a short tub, actually very nice. A few years later, I learned what a B400 was, and what he had done. I just shrugged, it had always looked good to me...full fendered and flattied.
i beleive a guy in arlington area streetrods had a couple of them back in the late 80s, he more than likely still has them. One was in street rodder mag, i think it was yellow , built by coddington if i remember right.
It's dark maroon with black fenders. Here's a couple more.
Wow... that is a nice car!
Wow, what a beautiful car. If I ever win the lottery, the B-400 is on my "to get" list, since a lottery is the only way I'll get one...lol. There was a body on eBay a week or so ago with a bare frame. It was already outa my price range and the reserve still hadn't been met. Nice cars. I'm lucky and happy enough with my deuce tudor.
And I dream of owning a 32 Vicky. Way past my means.
I saw 2 of them at Pomona LA Roadsters show this weekend.
Man, that is KILLER. Great execution of a resto-type hot rod, lots of attitude in that stance! Thanks for sharing-
B400s have been unobtanium for 2-3 decades. I doubt any stories where someone does not know the rarity.
As stated above ,Beautiful car. I also see in the ebay ad mentioned that it was to be at the LARS. Did is show and any more details on it? Rarely do they show up for sale.
this is a car that our shop did alot of work on. it has been on the road for about 6 years now. i'll post more pictures later.
To even make this more interesting, the B400 was specific the 32, as we all know. They also made an A400 (31) and a C400 (33). Very rare as well.
We have one in our shop as well. Original one, came out of kansas a 6 months ago, I will post pics later
Only 1142 of those rolled off the assembly line.
Great looking car. I remember a few articles way back on them in various magazines.
Seen over rodded. Be cool to build a phantom of one.
No such thing as a C400.
I have seen quite a few B400's and A400's but have never seen a real C400 as i do not believe they exist
My Buddy built a C-400 down in San Diego. It was a deep purple with gray top and int.
One sold at BJ in 2003
#434 1933 Ford C400 Vicky Convertible/Sedan Sold 66,960
Didn't Boyd build Micheal Anthony a "C-400" years ago as well?
That B-400 is a beauty!
What a nice looking car, i love the colour combo, wish i could see it in person.
more pictures would be appreciated
There is a rumor that if it can be documented the Bonnie & Clyde B400 may surface soon, maybe even in Colorado?
Thats the one in our shop.. we are just doing a little cleanup
thats the word... Its a pretty cool car
Hey Gary I thought we could convince him to put one of your chassis under it... I think he is on the fence due to the historical value!!!!
