  1. Congrats on finding the top parts at the Wichita Swap meet. I did not see them there, they must have been hiding behind stuff! COOL !

    Pretty good deal. Makes mine for $15k right on the money... maybe a little light.

    Did you go look through the spaces outside? There was probably 10 people that had spaces on the south side of the building... thats where I found them, the same guys were inside last year.

    Congratulations Chad! I think you should call it the "The six dollar coupe".

    yeah... I ran the numbers... if I got everything I need from UP.. i'd be over 11k according to speedways price list. that's with all the cheap non shiny stuff. includes full doors but NO hardware like hinges latches and windows mechanisms.

    Yea, if you need full doors, that really gets expensive. Of course, building 32, 33 or 34 fords is not a cheap endeavor.

    Collecting parts is the toughest part but looks like your doing just fine.

    Wow, looks like a really surprisingly workable roof section, gotta be rare to find that piece "loose", great score there.

    Did Titus get that top from Ranier? If he did, that top usta be mine. It's been passed around for quite a while. Good to see it finally being used.

    (If it is the same top, the car it came off of is now a hot rod cabriolet)

    Nice score! It's very exciting when you finally get your hands on that 32 you thought was unobtainable.... I was also lucky with my 32 roadster, and still get a rush thinking about how surreal and down right strange that day was for me!

    Still scooping parts up for it! Trying to get everything in order so I can move forward on it and get it assembled.

  27. Hell I think your doing a great job rounding up parts. It just takes time but it will come together. Great job so far...
