    I like both looks but can't decide , i have all the fenders and running boards so i can put them on in a weekend.
    Spring is still far away so i have some time to make up my mind.

    By the way , your tudor looks real good with fenders.

    Thanks for the info - I really don't remember where I found it on the Net!
    Is the Fordor still around? Do you have additional information about the car? Or more pictures?

    How did you repair the euro deuce wood. Just found this thread, so maybe someone knows of drawings etc. Of the wood used on the euro models.

    Would prefer not to accumulate errors from measuring warped/worm eaten/rotten wood, if someone has some factory blueprint copies.

    I'm not sure how Dominique, the previous owner of my car, specifically restored the wood. But I can see areas around the edge of the roof, in the cockpit, which have been reinforced with plates used by carpenters. Although the wood in my car is not perfect, Dominique did a great job.
    Anyway, I'm sure other Tudor/Fordor owners will be able to help you here.

    Entered THE RODDER'S JOURNAL's contest to win a set of Rocket wheels. Almost 500 entries. Car made it in the Top 12. Euro Deuces are getting some love.

  15. Every car in the top 12 looks better with the wheels they have now than they will with the Rocket wheels, and I like Rocket wheels. Your 32 is really cool.

    Originally a European Tudor, the Kandel family's "Phantom B400" was heavily modified: 1-inch chop, rounded doors, new reveals, repostioned door handles...

    Hi I bought a 32/34 sedan years ago with the body just sitting on top of the chassis. My question is does the European model sedan have subrails ? Not alot of them in Ireland to go look at. Hope it's not a silly question. Thanks in advance. Murf

    Actually, the chassis is the same as the one in North America... as far as I know. No subrail. Interestingly enough, the chassis on my car is stamped "Made in Germany"!

    I think the European deuce ( tudor ) body have a wood subframe.

    You know, you're right... Something was lost in translation. My fault. The car does have what you might call a subframe. Rails, subframe then body on top of it. Not sure what I was thinking ;-)
