    based on 2 pictures advertising a Model A at auction, I drove on down hoping to snag another A cheap. at first glance, I thought, Man, this is a piece of shit. a little bit more looking confirmed it. I quit bidding at $800. it sold for $2000. it did have a roadster title, that's what I really wanted . yep, thats a 32 frame too. the pics make it look better than it was, I guess i'm just a good photographer.

    I think you were right. The title must be worth a lot of money. Does the title work, being a coupe, not a roadster?

    Around here someone would ask $2K just for that body, without a title and without a '32 frame underneath. Not sure how hacked up that '32 frame is but if it's even close to saveable, I think that was a fair deal. The body has both doors and a trunklid, that's better than most of the ones I find.

    Are those rust holes in the 32 frame?

    they also had a 36 Olds 2-dr slantback, very solid, with a good title. a friend bought it. 20180602_084005.jpg i only got this one pic. it was a racoon hotel some quite a long time.

    1/4 elliptic rear springs! Might be the camera lens, but the rt. side looks sectioned...at the bottom!

    I agree with Squablow, the body alone here would have easily brought 2k. Even parted out. Folks are asking $500-$1000 for coupe roofs. Add up the cowl, pair of doors, deck lid...

    The bidder may have been after the clear title and has a Roadster body (Brookville?) waiting. He can sell off the Coupe body and frame and walk away with the clear title and maybe even net some cash.

    32 frame looks rough. There's a straight splice at the rear kickup (shortened or at least modified frame?) and another splice or repair at the firewall.

    I'll just never understand the title fascination, glad I live in Connecticut. That would part out at a profit, if you had the time. Wonder if it was cut into a pickup and that rear clip is from another body? Bob
