Damm dude! Nice !
Your engine is a 1937/38 with water pumps in the block. I don't know that I have seen any aftermarket 21-stud heads in that style. Ford did make an aluminum head for that engine. They look pretty neat...
Do you have any documentation on the history of the car? Or did someone just make up a neat story about England and the war because they had a RHD chassis from Argentina...I guess I am just skeptical about undocumented "Ebay Folklore". I hope I am wrong...
super cool car. i am skeptical too. but i also really hope i'm wrong. awesome hot rod.
As i said before this is what i was told and the old tires on it say "Made in England" on em as well as the coil and the Heads have a part# with an 'E' and i was told the 'E' stood for Europe again i never claimed to be an expert in 32 fords just stating what i was told ialso was told this is a Eurpean flathead.
Holy shit that thing is bad ass!!! Don't do anything but drive it
Very nice! I'm jealous!
WAAAAAY COOL just the way it is!
Gawd, that is NICE !! I don't think I would even wash it, ever.
Engine is probably from a late 40s English Ford Pilot or Fordson V8 Thames truck.
Awesome car!! Interested if the chop has been metal finished or did they use lead?
Ditto, I've seen those 21 stud heads with firing order cast on to them on English Ford Pilots.
whadda peesa junk!
trunk lid don't fit
no door handles
can I have it?
They did make a few aftermarket heads for the '37/38 21-stud engines. I have a set of Cyclones that will be going on a 21-stud in the next '32 chassis build. I've only seen one other set of these. They've been making the swap meet rounds here in the midwest for the last couple of years - priced like they were cast of gold!! NOS '37/38 factory aluminum heads are available with some looking and decently priced. A friend is running a set of these on his AV8 that I sold him a couple years ago.
It was exported from England in about 2003 have a look at the link http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=26203
That's a keeper, don't change a thing!
LMAO only Larry could come up with that
I have a set of Ford aluminium heads for that i believe i will let ya know i have to go dig the motor out its in the garage in the back of a bunch of others
Congratulations on a very nice ride!Now go confuse em at the drive thru!
Yeah ,... I know,...... I want it too,.....
Some dudes just seem to have all the cool gear. Perfect as is...congrats!!
Must be from the UK. Not a whole lot of other places that drive in the wrong side in Europe.
Must be really old too because there's a picture of Moses' tablets with the 8 commandments on the heads...
Thanks! for all the positive comments.... still looking for some alluminum heads!
Congrats! Looks sweeet!
Awesome hot rod, Congrats
Nice car! Stick a dummy on the left side and really confuse them at stop lights.
That's is spot on.
