    Or black Rudge-style wires with bright two-eared "knock-off" centres. As it's French the centres should have the symmetrical, squarish ears, not the British shark-fin-shaped ones (nor, come to think of it, the triangular cross-drilled American ones).

    Looking at the pictures of the fuel tank installation, I was wondering about the DeDion rear suspension as well, looks like it has inboard discs. Do you have a picture that shows the rear of the chassis?

    I really like your car, Hispano. The proportions are beautiful, I especially like the bobbed fenders and the looong hood. Nice work.

    Lovely proportions. "Rakish" is the word that springs to mind.

    Very cool build, never would have thought about building a '32 in this style.
    Makes you think that all those ridiculous stretched and channeled fordors just need a set of fenders and a long hood to make them look classy.

    Outstanding! It looks great and you're clearly a talented craftsman Reminds me of the cars at the Simeon Collection and Gooding & Company.

    This car has such beautiful lines! As a fan of both European and American coach builders and coach built cars, I am excited to see someone apply these styling cues and traits to the classic '32 Ford and produce something entirely new.

    This car screams European styling...bringing to mind the early Jaguars, Bentleys, Hispanos, Aston-Martin, Daimlers, Mercedes and Bugattis of the period. I also find it bears a striking resemblance to the early Lancias, like this '32 Lancia Limo....especially in the radiator shell and headlight placement.

    Great work! I will be watching for more!
