    Hey thanks Larry!...I have never squirted hot coffee out of my nose before...until I read this. I got to give my laptop a good cleaning too. I'm sure that anybody watching me would have had a good laugh though!

  11. Ok... i have had a pretty big weekend. Drove 2000klms round trip to pick this up. Left at 5.30pm and arrived at around 5am, loaded up and drove another 5 1/2 hours. Then on another 5 or so hours to get home. Looking in my rear view mirror at what i finally had gave me enough of a rush to keep on driving. I discovered this roadster listed as "forc 1920" on the internet and got an exceptional deal. On arriving to the arranged address and heading in at around 7am dogs barking. A four wheel drive came speeding down a dirt track towards me. I was confronted by an angry Vinyard owner yelling at me "WHY ARE YOU HERE? YOU SHOULDN'T BE HERE!" On explaining why i was there he replied "OH YOUR HERE TO PICK UP THE RUBBISH " (1932 ford roadster). At this stage i was pinching myself making sure i wasn't dreaming! A 32 roadster with all swinging panels for a give away price being refered to as a piece of rubbish! All my stars had aligned! funny thing is they helped me load it fast! as they were worried I'd change my mind! No chance of that!

  12. 1468898511554.jpg It had been laying upside-down for many years. As they didn't know anything about the roadster i asked where the rest of the running gear was and was told they threw it away when they cleaned up the farm! I also asked about a flathead that was available but was told a v8 would not be a suitable engine for a little ford roadster! A seized flathead was actually more expensive than the 32. I did my best to agree and not ruin my deal.

  16. 1468902253773.jpg This is my engine at this stage. The manifold is an S & J Brown, produced in Coburg North, Melbourne, Australia, the carbs are what came with a lot I purchased. I have some nice 94 holleys which I think I'll run.

    What are the major differences in a Aust. deuce, other than right hand drive?

    nasty old wooden framed piece of junk ,why would you want it LUCKY BASTARD good on you for being so switched on, and to follow up the add, I know all about not following up leads on cars ,but then who would want a 1933 phaeton lol . it took me twenty years to collect enough original parts for a 32 roadster like yours even though I didn't go more than 50 miles from home to get all the bits ,if I travelled that far in my state I would be dizzy ,what are your plans for the build
  25. 1468916066504.jpg Plans are based around my squirreled suply of early ford bits. 35 wires, bias tyres, flathead, 39 trans, triple 94's, wiend cheaters and rumble seat. Less is more! I have played a little with rougher gear to make some cash to fund projects. It will be slow but it's better in my shed than in a paddock in the rain i figure! The photo is of a flipped quarter. Thank goodness my roadster isn't that rough! Photos don't do it justice. Timber floor and timber in the door frames is all the difference i can tell. Pretty much the stuff that would have to be replaced anyway!
