Default '32 Ford

Generally, if you see a 1932 Ford these days it is a coupe or a customized hot rod. A few days ago I spotted this 2-door sedan at the local donut shop.

Beautiful...except for the tires, looks like it was just driven out of the showroom. Is that a '32 Ford..looking at the grille, maybe a bit of a later model ?

Actually, you're right, lesmore49. It's a 1935. Thanks for noting that. I'll change it.

My dad had one of these a LOOOOOONG time ago. It didn't look anywhere near that good. But, then, he got it used and drove it until the doors fell off... literally.

Nice image!

Wow, a 1935 Ford... amazing... let me know when you come across a 1929 Ford... that would be the car for me. Good photo! Thanks.

Hmmm, a 1929. Didn't know they made one. At least my book doesn't show anything before 1930.

All the best.

Ford goes back to 1903. My dad's first car was a 1926 Model T Ford....that was around 1936. It was the depression, he didn't have much money and he was 16 years old,. He paid $ 15 for the used Ford.

It had a hole in the gas tank and he kept on plugging the hole with gum...which he gave him about 15 minutes of plugging time....before he had to replug the hole.

I have a buddy who has a 1926 Ford Model T roadster (converted into a hot rod) with a 327 cubic inch (5.3 liter) Chevrolet V8. He is in the process of hot rodding a 1927 Model T pickup...plans are to put in a Ford 351 cubic inch (5.8 liter) V8 as the powerplant for this new rod.

Eetu and lesmore49
I have a huge book of American cars that weighs about 8 pounds. Unfortunately, while it mentions Ford as having produced cars from 1903, it has no pictures of models prior to 1930. Guess I'll be looking for another book, eh?
