    It’s HERE! After 83 years in France, this is the first picture (sorry, not the best!) of my sedan in California, patiently waiting at the freight forwarder. Car travelled well. More info in a few days

    I was wondering is there any other Euro 32 in the US or yours is the only one?

    Not sure, Chris. Another (4-cylinder '32 B) sold a few years ago. I talked to the seller today (totally by accident!) and he isn't sure what happened to it. I don't know about any others.

    Yesterday, picked up the ‘32 at the freight forwarder and dropped it off at Vintage V8 Restoration in Orange, CA where Charles Franklin will handle the chassis work. (Here is the car next to his shop in good company).

    The plan? Rebuilt/repositioned steering box, '39 Ford gearbox (instead of '34), Lincoln front brakes, steel '40s Ford wheels, modified seat... A few little things!

    Considering that I see myself as a card carrying hot rodder with little interest in restored cars, I look at photos of original Euro versions and think of all the possibilities.
    I'll be giving 57snrf a mental "thumbs up" every time I open this thread, as he has added a whole new dimension to the Deuce world that some of us never knew existed.
    Makes me want to hear some Jeff Beck.

    57snrf, my father has the same unrestored 32 Ford Tudor than you, but with a Model B engine. It runs great.
    I bought a disassembled 32 Fordor with the 40hp model BF engine and a 4.55: 1 rear axle.
    Also, I bought a Model B engine. I can read on it Ford and H near the water inlet. It have an aluminum oil pan, crankshaft counterweight, WWII German tag on the flywheel housing (army color all over :confused: ) ... BUT dippers on the rods.
    Could you help me? (Model? Year? Country? Spec? ...)
    Thank you.

    I saw the same truck few years ago and I read on the Firewall tag : "AA4 Long".

    Thanks Dddenny! Just thought this topic might help a few.
    Gabalus: I honestly could not help... If you're on Facebook, please post on EURO DEUCES. I imagine some people might be able to help.
    Do you have pictures of you Model B!?
