The one I put together about 9 or 10 years ago
Here are a few more of Julian Alvarez's original SD I shot at the L.A. Roadster's Father's Day meet a couple of months back...
I met "Jewels" in '83 at OCIR Nostalgia Nats. He was working on his Bud Bryan '29 AV-8 and his Deuce B-400 was sitting next to the roadster. Very nice guy. He has some rare Deuces. Hope to see him at El Mirage in November. Last time there I sat and talked with Jim Jacobs and Joey Angelo. I really felt privileged sharing a table with "Jitney Jake".
You were in some great company right there Gary!
That would be my uncle Tom's 32 SD before it was finished.
That one is a keeper Frank!
All done and racking up miles
Just wanted to add this, It's now in Okie land originally built by Paul Beck over 10 years ago and still doesn't have over 5000 miles on it. That'll change real quick. I'll give the roadster and the 5 window a little brake this next coming year
Did you buy that one Don? I think I’ve seen some pics of it here and there on the web.
Looks like it might be one of the Australian bodies?
I like it a lot.
Yep It's mine Ron. It's a Harwood body from when he was still makin a few in Tyler Texas. Not many made.
new look same old delivery.
RacerJeff owns the '32sd that Stan VanBurgh built in the 80's. It belongs on this thread!!! How about it Racer??
My uncle's 32 sedan delivery. All steel body with a fiberglass rear door, I'd love some signs or tips on what to look for to determine whether it started life as an SD.
Other features include the matching themed trailer(s), a '85 tuned port Corvette motor, Ford 9" rear end, coil-overs, Centerline wheels, and many other high quality details. My understanding is that the car was built in the PNW before my uncle purchased it at Hot August Nights ~20 years ago.
Before and ....
Here is my 32 Ford phantom delivery. It was built from a 31 slant windshield 4 door Murray body with panels and parts from two 1932 Ford bodies... a Vicky and a tudor sedan. It has been together for over 12 years with 302 Ford power and an automatic.
I think it has shorter doors but I like the longer looking side panel. With only 58 true V-8 sedan deliveries produced and only 344 4 cylinder sedan deliveries produced giving a total production of 402; I wonder just how many true originals remain? In a sense, most of those on the road today are a "phantom" to one degree or another.
I've got to say that I'm very grateful for all the efforts of others to ensure that the body style survives; especially since so many have been done so well.
Hats off to those that have made that happen... it is clear that it took great effort and attention to detail. Great craftsmanship. Thank you.
nice but give the dampers a shot of black
Anyone have any info on these? All I can find are small, personal units for kids and pets.
Original Flower Car
a little treasure
Sorry, but there is nothing correct about that rear bumper.
Thus is what a original sedan delivery bumper should look like. HRP
Back before I knew better, the first SD I ever saw with the factory formed rear bumper I said to myself "I bet that guy was just sick when he backed into that tree".
