    I understand that someone out there has Harry Luzader's 32 Ford gasser. I would love to see that car restored.

  4. It's hidden in a garage. I forget the guys name that has it but I always see him at the PID events. Supposedly he's going to get the car back out. I think he made some modifications to it awhile back but he's returning it to the way Harry had it. Everybody wants to see the car! Jeff Beck called the current owner and offered him an unknown amount for it and the current owner declined the offer....... Harry Luzader told me that himself!

  7. Harry built the car when he was in high school and drove on the street for about a year or so then turned it into a race car.

    Harry's 5 window was my inspiration in the 60's. I used to watch him at Indy and Englishtown and vowed to build a clone when I got out of college. Sadly, that never happened but I still rank his coupe as one of the best. Here is as far as I got then I went to the Army.

    I worked for harry as his only mechanic for up to 2011 for three years in till I moved to Arizona. One of the smartest guys I have ever met. He gives 110 percent towards anything he does. I also helped with the race team he had crew cheifed . Attention to detail was never over looked.

    Is Harry's Opal around too. That was a really nice car too.
     
  16. The Opel has been in storage since the early 80s but Harry plans on making it into a streetrod soon.

  19. That is one great looking 5 window....
     
  20. I called on Harry's parts store back in the early 90's..the place was immaculate..never have I seen such neatness and cleanliness..you guys have no idea..

    I thought Harry told me the guy pro streeted that car at one time???
     
  21. I'm pretty sure Harry told me the guy pro streeted the car also. Back when the car was pro streeted the car was probably looked at as just a 32 Ford the just happened to be an old race car.

    Harrys Coupe RULED !
     
  24. I belong to a few western Pennsylvania car clubs and racing forums as well as know quite a few of the people who put on and promote the PID reunion functions and this has been a topic of conversation more than once. The car is still in the area (Pitcarin) which is right outside of Monroeville, where Harry's shop is. The guy who currently owns the car had turned it into a Pro Street car when that craze hit - don't know if it was actually ever completed at this point or not, but the guy will not part on it. From what I've heard, the giuy doesn't need the money and knows what he has so he has turned down BIG money for it. A friend of the family knows the owner and has invited me to come down and check it out but I never took him up on the offer as I've heard the car has been striped, gutted, pro streeted, etc. and nothing remains from it's glory days as Harry' s old Gasser.



     
  25. That's a shame if its in that kinda shape that its in.... I hope the guy returns it to its former glory.

    an all time favorite of mine--one of the coolest 32's ever in my mind.
     
  29. I have always dug that car. It was of the first I remember seeing in dads old magazines and catalogs (which I have to this day), Harry got a lot of press with that car!
