ford question

I was recently back in the backwoods of Saskatchewan and came upon a car in the bush , fairly rough shape and overturned. It is a 2 door sedan but has a tank in the rear like a deuce, been looking on the web and couldn' really find what it was, does anyone have any ideas.

Most of the cars of the late twenties and early thirties had a rear mounted tank. Post some pics if you have them as there are some pretty good detectives here. I know that many of the past pics you have posted from Saskatchewan are of Fords - what makes you think this one is a Ford?

Sounds like a deuce to me. Maybe someone modified the fenders over the years hoping they wouldn't crack. Or maybe they are aftermarket replacement fenders. Sure would like to see some pics if you have them. By the way are you going to the Super Run in Brandon on Aug. 3,4 &5?

Sorry to hear about the cancer catching up on you again. You will be in our prayers. I am sure you will be around for a long time - why else would the big guy up above lead to you that 32 if he didn't have plans for you to build it.

Yes Henry did make 32 tudors. Here is some pics of some rods with fenders and a couple of how grapro would build it.

ford

Homebrew Thanks for the encouragement, Got another stupid question, hope it is not too stupid i noticed the tank, and that is the identical car as far as I can remeber, how much different is this frame from a deuce frame and is the car worth anything to rebuild other than my personal satification.

All the 32/deuce Ford frames were all the same. Yes, that tudor would be worth building. Any 32 Ford is going to be worth much more when it is done than any Model A that is built with the same parts and the same way.
