Seen in the latest issue of the excellent Gasoline Magazine, Sweden (http://gasolinemagazine.us/)
The same car (from Quote Nr. 151), soon with fenders. Better IMHO, no?
Have to repost this... 1956 British movie with Benny Hill. Tudor sedan being abused at 2:58 minutes
I think I recognize this car,,,
To say nothing about the abuse the poor 3 window he drives suffers at the end...........
Thanks J! Just curious, where did you find the picture? Looks like a magazine.
Nice tread. I got the notice from my favorite Flathead professor Bruce Lancaster. Last year I found one of these Deuces in Denmark and brougt it home to Norway. I'll share some more in a while. Just wanted to drop in a pic. It's an unrestored car.
Cool stocker, AV8-Rider! What's the plan with the car?
Where can that magazine be purchased ?
Have not finaly decided 57snrf. Completely Stock is not my thing. Thinking of doing some minor mods to fix the stance and change wheels or maybe sell it.
I am the 5th owner since new and the car has only 87000km on the odometer. Has lead a quiet life. Was in a car dealers show room from 1973-2003.
Comercials was way better, way back when!
Comercial states ; new automobil for a new Era.
But it is also a design master piece.
Found this fore sale in denmark.
What a nice project.
That is one rare piece over here; chopped, channeled and rear fender well sectioned.
Them we don't see many off.
Great stuff from Denmark & Norway - thanks guys
Here is a picture from the Cry Baby car show from France. Unchopped & chopped versions of French Tudors. (Photo: Nicolas Aubin)
Chris Chardon's Model A and Frank Fuochi's (ex-) Tudor
At one point a few years ago, while still in France, my sedan had no fenders. Event: the private Dusty Race, open to traditional hot rods only
I think I posted this once before...but here's my oddest and most disturbing sighting of a EuroDeuce:
There's one in the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC...a display includes warped, charred junk army truck frames, actually used in a death camp as a rack for cremation. One is clearly a '32 BB, presumably one of the German ones that stayed in production into the 1940's. Hell of a sorry end for a BB.
My eyes have been trained over the last 50 years to lock onto any 1932 stuff anywhere, and finding that was very disturbing.
I posted this on the sitting and rotting thread back in april:
A 28 or 29 model A and a Euro 32 Ford behind rusting in peace in Oradour sur Glane, a village razed by the nazis where they slaughtered 645 civilians on june 10 1945
Very cool, Bruce & ChrisP.
Some pages from one of my vintage brochures. (French 1932 Ford)
Another picture (by Chris Youks) of the Custom Parts & Wear meet, Switzerland. (It welcomed 4 European Deuces)
I usually don't post pictures of non-Euro sedans; but Francois Boudreault's Tudor from Quebec is pretty cool
Vintage artwork from a 1932 brochure
"Before & after"! I was looking for 2 bumpers... and ended up finding/buying 3! The one installed on the back of the car is in decent shape (repro though). Taillights need to be moved up now. For the front, I had to choose between another repro in OK shape (slight rust) and a very original piece, but seriously rusty. Ended up choosing the original bumper, but not before spending hours cleaning it.
Seen in Street Machine Magazine (UK) back in the '80s, a British '33-34 "Deuce". Profile shows the typical fenders and different shape of bottom of apron and doors. (Doors are "taller" in effect).
