    dropped headlight bar, spare tire removed, dropped axle. Big and littles. Since it's San Francisco... an automatic. V8 and chop for next week.

    I often mention how much cooler these cars are in the wild. A car you’d knit pick at a show or event you’d fall over yourself and chase it down the street if you saw it at the grocery store

    It needs absolutely nothing. There has to be a few cars that are left just the way they rolled off the line some 88 years ago.

    Maybe I'm just an asshole hot rodder, but ditch that tire off the back along with the bumpers, bolt in a dropped axle, add some steelies...

    But I'm glad there are still people that appreciate it for what it is and leave it stock. I couldn't do it.

    Man... I know many have said it before but it's pure hot rod right from the factory. Maybe it's because we're so use to seeing them chopped and fenderless, but it looks damn good!

    That is just beautiful and although they make great hot rods that example deserves to stay stock IMO.

    I think Ford's made from 1928-1941 are some of the best looking cars ever made, both stock and modified if done with taste and finesse.
    Now I think I'm gonna need a stocker of some sort when my hot rod Phaeton build is done.

    Very nice, the king of closed cars in my view...

    even mine... I have sold a '34 fiver body because it was too good to cut... and I like to cut...

    When you see a beautiful woman walking down the street, do you look at her and think about what you would change? No of course not. Then why would you change this beautiful lady. Just admire her beauty as she passes by and enjoy the way it makes you feel...

    What a stunner, I would vote for a dropped axle and call it good. All the mentioned deletes would take some of its original charms in my opinion. Thanx for sharing this knockout.

    Looks like it’s already a hot rod, with those 16” Kelsey’s. Beautiful car!

    Finally a 32 Ford with the correct “stance”.

    I'd have to have dual pipes before anything else … 17'' Douglass steelpacks would be just right.

    I think you travelled into a time warp... did it disappear as it rolled down the street?

    Makes me want to buy a B'ville! Sure can't afford a gennie!
  19. I would love to have that, need to preserve a couple of stock 32's for the future. Would be a neat time machine to be able to drive it in all stock configuration.

    According to the judges at the GNRS it needs flames, a LS and an IFS—but I say fuck that... Just make it go fast and look cool

    This showed up at the Austin airport while I was waiting for my ride. I don't believe it had anything to do with the Roundup.

    Beautiful car. However, I thought only the stand coupe or the Model B would have the painted and stainless wrapped light bar? Correct me if I'm wrong.

    In My opinion gm got it right in the 50s and 60s there cars look great stock and most only really need an altitude adjustment to refine them even further

    Only thing I'd do would be install hydraulic brakes. Otherwise leave it alone! In congested traffic, mechanical brakes just don't get it done. Been there and done that. But "O My God" what a georges automobile!

    I wonder if it still has the one barrel carb.

    All '32's had the same headlight bar that had painted ends and the stainless wrap. Only difference was the hole for the V8 emblem. The trucks were all black. My book says that in June they put an additional 9/16" forward arch in the bar to give more clearance for the grille bar.

    This 3 window has chrome ends on the headlight bar and if you blow the picture up it appears to me to have a chrome rear window frame and you can make out the bright edge of the inside of the door window moulding (the glass side). With before mentioned 16" bent spoke Kelsey Hayes wheels that makes this a Hot Rod and not the pristeen restored car you thought it was. Maybe it has a SBC.

    The only thing I would change on it would be the location where I was driving it. Driving a car like that in San Francisco, no way.

    The only thing I would change is the owner, that is if I had the money to make it happen.
