1932 window frame/posts on 1927 Ford Roadster

I was just wondering if anyone who owns a 27 Roadster has ever installed a 32 chopped windshield and leaned back posts on it. I really like my 27, but the windshield looks bulky, unlike the look of a 32. Someday perhaps I will have the money for a 32, but for now I will just work on the 27. Any advice would greatly be appreciated. Thanks

It has been done.. depending on your fabrication skills there are a number of windshield treatments that can be done. I think i would at least get a set of lower window stanchions to start with if I made my own windshield..

windshield

If you look at the Speedway lo boy windshield post they can be used on your car I think. I made a set for my last '32. Note there is a slot for the glass to go into on the Speedway post. To further seal and support the glass I cut a trough across the cowl and set the glass down into it also. Very clean and small.

Thanks 39 master. I'll definitely have a look.

Thanks, Sam. I'll order those Lowe stanchions and see how they fit. I have done a lot of bodywork and paint, but my welding skills are just so-so. Luckily, all these pieces are small enough to take to a professional welder if I have to. Thanks, again.

windshield post

Here is a picture of the '32 with home built post. As you can seeit's simple and clean. If you know someone with a Bridgeport that could carve a set out of aluminum that would be the ticket.

I don't know anyone that has a Bridgeport, but I will figure this out. You all have given me some great ideas to work with.
