    grille too short....looks like toilet seat. Least you can do is go look at it. Roof/windwhield look like maybe something is 'tweaked' a bit....not very level with other parts. Could be a scam, but as long as you go there with your own best interests in mind...couldn't hurt to check it out. Could be the seller just isn't a car person.

    Looks priced right to me....given the fact it is going to cost you another 10 grand to get those flames off of it!

    Funny I thought the exact same thing. But if it is a steel body......

    Years ago I bought a Model A from Disney, X parade car. Turns out Barry White built it 20 or so years prior. He bought it back! Can't hurt to go look at it.

    I actually have talked to the seller, He offered the car on a trade for my 50 ford and our communication was so slow that the trade eventually fell through when I got a cash offer. He seemed ok I just decided to take the bird in hand than the two that may or may not be in ontario, for the record I dont think its a scam

    It has a lot of problems,and pictures hide a lot. Basically you're buying a body to start with and various assorted parts. Price seems fair to me.Looks like some tard used barn door hinges or something and made the doors open the wrong way:eek:
     
  12. If it was of the ones that they used to use at Disneyland, my brother in law used to refurbish and repaint them every couple of years. He worked in a very small shop in Orange with Roy Schmidt who later gained fame on Boyd's show - the older guy who used to fall asleep.

    This right here was mine, pretty much as you see it.
    I pulled the rear fenders off, and painted it all orange, removed all the electronics and crap. It was a Polyform body, decent little hot rod.

  16. What if it is actually a 1932 Ford steel body?
    While all the talkers, talk, some one who knows what they are doing will step in and get a bargain.
    If it was any where near me, I would sure be looking. I could tell in two minutes whether it was a deal.
     
  17. Thats what I was thinking.

    Looks like a car that might have some interesting history, or could just be a really messed up 60's/70's era pipe dream.

    Would be great to look at it in person. I would sure check it out if it were near me.

    Not a deal but fair price for a steel 32 even with the stuff that needs to be fixed.
    just my .02

    Isn't Too Bad !!!!
    I dont think it is a scam because it is a TURD, it is about 2 hours away and I would'nt waste my time even if it was a steel body. You can buy a Brookville for the same money with out the obvious head aches that this thing has??? :mad:

    looks pretty boogered up to me. not a true roadster. might even be overpriced at $11,000. no telling what the frame is or how it was put together. might tear into it and find all you have is a junk yard motor and a pair of 32 rear quarters someone might need.
