After looking around, I'll agree with you.. 20's seem extreme. maybe 17's in the rear and 16's in the front.

I strongly suggest you go to this on line photo gallery.

http://www.carnut.com/photo/list/flist.html

The select Ford ... and then 1932. There are hundreds of photos of 32 roadsters. See what is most popular.

I am all for building something different ... but circus wagons ... after the first big splash ... do not hold up well. Most of the weird, one off vehicles are sold for pennies on the dollar a few years later.

This is a photo of MY 32 roadster taken by someone else at the NSRA Nationals in 1973 ... ( almost 40 years ago ).



Here is was in 2005 at the NSRA Nationals ( Louisville KY )





Consider looking at a lot of the photos on that photo site

Those two holes do mount to the radiator, which should have two tabs. The hood center bracket bolts there with two 10-32x5/8 or 3/4 flat head machine screws. You need to use some ingenuity to get the nuts on though. Those tabs on the radiator top are also for the radiator support rods from the firewall. Everything ties together for a fairly solid assembly. This is in my '31 with the '32 grille and radiator





This is a Brookville radiator shell, Walker radiator and a Cooling Components(Walker owned) fan.







Shows those @#$% springs.

The a/c stuff is gone now, too

I trimmed a trade number 20957 to fit - it's a 79 F150/302/wo A/C. I don't recall how much -maybe an inch or two on each end.

Just happened to log on - we are out with our RV in the woods of Upstate NY.

Make sure it will work with your setup before you cut up
