I can't get enough of this thread! Damn good one! Thank you!
Keep them coming 57snrf
Glad you like the topic, Krash.
And from the UK - might be a Jago 'glass body (?)
From Sweden, Gunnar Lindstrom's Fordor
... more views of the same car...
This just sold here in France for around $11K US.It was in Grenoble.
This is not mine anymore , sold it to Werner who is a dutch rodder.
Loved it but sold it since my coupester is ready and can't keep them all.
Got it, Dennis.
And thanks for the pics, Sheldon - 11K seems reasonable.
Earlier this decade: Dusty Race, France. Euro Fordor was built by ATP.
Here is Werner on the day he picked up the tudor
As seen in Street Machine Magazine (UK) many years ago.
Note '33-34 fenders (as the "Deuce" continued evolving in Europe after '32)
Model B in France, 1930s.
Note Euro-style hood with raised panels
That pic is of a dealer in eastern France delivering a New '32 but in early 1933.The dealer had to go to Paris to pick the car up.Notice the horn(Ducellier,beep not Ahooga) and the head lights(Marchal) which were French requirements then.
Thanks for the info, Sheldon. Great stuff.
On another note, hot rod show in Holland last weekend: Pete Dempsey's Tudor.

The body in the pics above is mine for the 12 years and i have to many projects. If you are interested give me an email and let's talk.
What i have is the body with doors, all windows, complete floor (partly wood as original but still in great condition), firewall, 2 gloves dashboard as original.
Working opening front ventilation and opening front windshield.
5000 euro's and it is yours. Located in the Netherlands/Holland 30 km below Rotterdam. Will help with shipping if needed.
Thanks for posting, Hennie. Seems like a great price.
And last weekend, in Switzerland... (Photo Etienne Butterlin)
A buddy here just turned up with this Flathead Alu pan.Apparently its off a French Vendome Car (1948-54)not a military truck.Tin cover for the starter bendix missing.Interesting piece.Not for sale
Yes, it could be a rare Ford Vendome pan. They came with a 239ci engine, too (1953-54).
Bob Miller/Dominique Meunier might be able to identify it (?)
Its been confirmed as the rare Vendome pan.Thanks
yes it's a vendome oil pan , with his ventilation hole on the front .
advert from " la revue ford "number 20 1933 . a 32 BB frame bus bodyed ( i dont know if the word is good !)
by the crafstman sylvain floirat who built many bus on different frames .
I hope that bus had a V8 rather than a 4 cylinder!
Two weeks ago, hot rod/custom show in Holland. (Photo Alessio Canone)
Photographer Mike Key’s Tudor close to 40 years ago
The old European ’32 Tudor, which I brought back from France in 2015 (and now resides in Detroit), received some love in The Rodder's Journal.
When I purchased the 1st issue of The Rodder’s Journal 25 years ago, I would have never imagined seeing my car in the magazine one day.
(Let alone with my story and photography)
Not a Hot Rod ... but here's a 1932 Ford V8 Convertible Victoria with coachwork by Drauz Karosseriewerke in Germany:
The TRJ article is very nice Stephan. Enjoyed reading it.
