Great story and love those 32 b's. Sweet, and keep us posted.
Congrats!what a great picture 0f you and you.
Outstanding sir.Just outstanding.
Good luck.Have fun.Be safe.
Like 3 w larry said can't believe you knew how to take that picture. I can't even post a picture on here anymore! Great story.
that is so right,I'll never get back my 56 chevy 2dr post,but I just got a 56 sedan delivery. The dash brought back everything I'd lost 40yrs ago.
awesome story getting your car back,pics are timeless.time to live your life.good on you
This is a great story.
But.....I see you have one also. Why not start a new thread and tell
that tale?? (With some pics, of course)
Yeah.....it's rather amazing.......I bought and sold several older cars of the
40s and 50s back in the 1970s. They went to people from area towns, for
the most part, and I have only seen one of them since. None seemed to
get restored and turn up at area shows -- or anyplace I have happened to
And, the one I did find......the guy let it sit under a carport for 25 years
and deteriorate to a point I didn't want to tackle all the repairs needed.
He sold it (minus the motor) to an area old car dealer, who in turn sold it
to someone from 150 miles away or more. Be interesting to see if it
ever turns up again.
So.......hang onto that first car, or whatever you like best.
awesome story, congrats ron....
What an amazing story! Glad to see you get your ride again. I've always wondered what happened to the 32 5-W, my Dad and a friend of his were building together in Ontario in the 50's. They didn't finish it, and my Dad joined the RCMP, ending up in BC.
nice story, and a cool car too.
Great story, congrats!

One of the greatest stories on the HAMB ! It must be an amazing feeling !
That's very powerful picture. Makes me recall Bob Seager lyrics.
"Twenty years now
Where'd they go?
I don't know
I sit and I wonder sometimes
Where they've gone"
Only it's more like 50 years! Thanks for the great story. Enjoy it while you can.
Awesome story, Thanks for sharing. Out of curiosity what would $75.00 for the price in 55 compare to now?
very kool story
i found a website that converts money to show inflation, $75 in 1955 would be about $572( give or take) today.
could you imagine?
great story, looking forward to seeing it around town
Bob; Thanks for this but I just had to mention that it was me that bought the car. Whenever I bought a car my Dad would co-sign a loan that I would get from the General Motors Acceptance Corporation. It was a great lesson in financial responsibility.
That's a great story, but that picture is awesome !!!!
Thanks for sharing your wonderful story. Just one question ..... Would you be my big brother? ha ha
Great hot rod karma! Seems you were just meant to get your car back. Good luck with her.
But you are not considering the increase in value that an antique auto has achieved. If you just bought dishes or tools worth $75 back then, then they would not have increased in value nearly as much if at all. Even 10 years would make a difference with a 32 Ford.
Great story! thanks for posting.
I've been looking for 20 years hoping to find the 1940 ford convertible that I bought in 1962 and kept through high school. I have the numbers off the frame with alerts all over the place on the internet hoping the number will pop up some day.
9That is just so Killer Ron... super stoked for ya!!!!!
