    This is my new ride , it's a 1934 european deuce with the 4 banger.
    I really like it and won't change much for now and drive as it is , maybe lower it a bit by reversing the spring eyes and some new gaskets to stop some oil leaks.
    Future plans are flathead v8 but first i want to finish my other projects.

    Pics. from the seller:

    So, it's officially a 1934 1932? Could you post some images of the grille shell, or other small differences, please? Still great looking, whatever you call it. Gary

    Yes i believe they produce the 32 model till 1934 in europe.
    Biggest difference is the body with suïcide doors, and the dash with double glovebox.
    Will post some pics of the grill and dash later.

    Is the wheelbase shorter as well as the rear quarters and quarter glass? Or am I seeing things? Or are the doors longer and make it appear that way? Just curious.

    I really like that. Chrome shell is a big no-no here, but somehow it works with the understated theme of that one. Same with the higher stance, it works in this case. That car would stick out like a sore thumb here, in a good way IMO. Different can be good sometimes, nice car.

    Its very common on the 33/34 euro-deuce, to make it more appealing dispite being last year's model. It was stock on 34 if I recall correctly.

    The later 32 front wings in the UK also had sides like the 34 US style.

    Just beautiful! The turn signal lamps look nice atop the frame rails, best setup I've seen on a fenderless '32.
    This car is striking. As mentioned, the chrome shell is right for this application...
    Color me envious.

    Thanx for the pix. I always thought chrome / nickel plated shells were cool, even on 32s. They make the little 32s look more like big, vintage luxury cars and / or race cars. Gary
     
  21. I agree that is super nice Great Buy!

    Was the chromed grill shell a factory option or done later.?

    Factory made, the deuce was sold for 3, to keep the price down.
    But to keep the people happy, they chromed the grill and changed the front fenders and some small stuff.

    Please note that euro-deuces has suiside mounted doors, 2 glove boxes and different body line and rear window.

    There is a full thread dedicated to these cars.
