info 1930-1932 coupe

1989 i purchased in Huntington Beach CA, 1930/1932 ford model A coupe Lic #BADROD.(which was in several publications) I unfortunatly had to get rid of it due to personal issues. I had the frame custom done at TCI Frame and the body and engine modifacation done in Huntington Beach, CA..At that time the color of the vehicle was purple w/pinstriping. I would just like to know what it looks like today?and to find it.

Thanks,

And that would put your age at almost 6 at the time. Damn I wish I could make money like these young kids.

The Model 'A' Ford was manufactured from 1928 thru 1931. There also was a Model'A' in the very early 1900's (around 1905). The 1932 Ford was either a Model 'B' (4 cylinder) or a V-8.

No such thing as a "1930/1932 ford model A".

Hey guys, cut the kid some slack. Do you remember the model of the pedal car you had when you were 6. I think mine was a Murray but not sure of the model.

C'mon man put some thought into it if you're gonna lie. Its simple, your 20 now, and in '89 you had this "BADROD" Damn. Unless your not 20? But I would assume you know your birthday, if anybody you must.

I started to when I first saw the post, but thought better of it. I have a pic of that car in my garage on the wall, using it for inspiration on my project.

Yikes, I just noticed the body is Street Beast....yuk.

whoa whoa.... there was a little misunderstanding here..... I am not the one that posted this... my boss was talking about his car he had back in the day and he was wondering how he could find it... i suggested to put a post on here because the car sounded familiar and i thought maybe someone on here would have heard of it. So can we try this again? I talked to him again and he says it was a 5 window 1930 or 1932 model A. We searched throughout the internet and didn't find much.

a few more things..... when he sold it, it had a blower on it, rumble seat was welded up , had a fuel cell in where the rumble seat was, several thousand was spent on the paint, it was really nice at the time, it was in a few magazines but wasn't completely finished when he sold it. New owner could have redone it so pretty much all we have to go by is the license plate said "BADROD" .

If you posted that for your boss I can see where typing what he said would come across as trolling. I wouldn't think anyone would be dumb enough to say they bought a car in '89 yet they are only 20 years old. You never know though. We have had some pretty stupid trolls on here lately. But what you say does make more sense. If that was what happened I apologize. But there are quite a few troll hunters on here and I thought I had one in my sights. My apologies if thats what happened. Welcome aboard and enjoy the sight.

I got your message.

Tell your boss that there is no such thing as a 1932 Model A.

The Model A Ford was manufactured from 1928 thru 1931.

All Model A Coupe's were 5 window with the exception of the Cabriolet. It had coupe doors and a cloth top.

The 1932 Ford Coupe could be purchased in either the 3 window or 5 window version. The 1932 Ford Model B was powered by a 4 cylinder engine. A V-8 flathead (first year for it) was available as an option and it was not referred to as a Model B. It had a V-8 emblem on the headlight bar in the middle to distinguish it as the V-8 model.

I'm not saying that your boss didn't have a car as you (he) described. I am saying that he is mistaken as to one of the 'possible' years of manufacture.

Does he have any old photos that you could scan and post? Perhaps someone would then recognize the car and post here about it. What about the magazine article(s)?

ok, i talked to him again, he's gonna dig up some pics...... i will get them soon i hope. I wanna put them up just to show i wasn't being a "troll" . The only bad thing is he doesn't have any after he did the work..... all he has is some pics of when he bought it(stock look). But at least then we will be able to tell the year, i hope.

oh and the magazine articles.... he can't remember the car mags.... but he did say it was in the early nineties. Since it wasn't complete i'm guessing it wasn't a cover car.... he would have saved those i'm sure, so i'm guessing the mags put him in as a work in progress? maybe a pic or two with a few paragraghs about it? Anyway, it sounds like frisco knows his early fords so i'm gonna try to get more info and post. Thanks.

THIS is a 32 Ford........as is the 2 cars in my picture in the upper left side.

Model A's and 1932 Fords are vastly different. Both have a special place in peoples hearts. They are like vanilla and chocolate. BOTH GOOD.......but different.

They made well over 10 million Model A's (they made them for 4 years..1928,1929,1930 and 1931).

!932's were a 1 year only car. Less than 400 thousand...total production.

1932 were longer wheelbase, lower to the ground, had a fuel pump, small diameter rims (18'.......21 and 19 for the Model A's)

When Henry Ford quit making the Model A.........he shut the plant down for months and the 32 did not come out until March of 1932.

The depression was very bad in 32 so not many new Fords were sold. The 33's were total new sheet metal again. Longer, lower and had more improvements




Here is a load of NEW 1932 Fords...........on their way to the dealership. I wish that 3 window coupe was at my House

Am I wrong here?

I looked for someone else to say it but can't find it. Is that or is it not a '33 or '34 Ford Coupe. Call me crazy but thats no '32 at all.
I would think that anyone who owned a car like that should know what year was.

The picture posted by kevin45 clearly states that it is a 1934 Ford. Is that the one you are referring to?

The photos posted by Deuce Roadster are of 1932 Fords.

SO ARE THESE..............

A friend and I host a Deuce Run every year.
Only 1932 Fords are invited. We took off out of Charlotte NC, cruised up the Blue Ridge Parkway to Blowing Rock the year this was shot (2002).

We had almost 40 in this photo........
