1912 Buick 29 Touring
1932 Ford Model B Deluxe Fordor Sedan
After building nearly five million Model A Fords from 1928 through 1931, Ford introduced a completely new car for the 1932 model year. The new 1932 Fords were completely redesigned from front to rear. The fenders were fully crowned and had dramatically, flowing proportions and the radiator shell was gently rounded with a separate, vertical grill assembly. The bodies were also completely redesigned to have a lower belt line, a lower top line, a raked windshield and the running boards were mounted directly to the frame, which, gave the car a lower and more modern appearance. The 1932 Ford would be a one-year only body design that would later become the most iconic Ford ever built. The popularity of the 1932 Ford cannot be overstated. Nearly 85 years later, the 1932 Ford is still the one of the most significant and sought after cars ever built.
Two models were built during 1932. The Model 18, which was powered by a new, V-8 engine and the four-cylinder, Model B. The Model B engine was a redesigned and significantly improved Model A engine. The power was increased from 40 to 50 horsepower and the engine featured a balanced crankshaft and a mechanical fuel pump instead of the old, gravity system used on the Model As. The intake and exhaust ports were improved and the engine had a redesigned camshaft and cylinder head. The new Model B engine proved to be robust and was considered my many to be more reliable than the troublesome new V-8.
This 1932 Model B Deluxe Fordor Sedan is a very original car that was just removed from a long-term collection. It has had some light cosmetic restoration over the years but has never been taken apart or restored. The body and fenders are all Henry Ford, original steel. There is no fiberglass or reproduction sheet metal on this car. The body is original and rock solid. The doors open and close as they should and fit the body with even gaps and margins. The hood aligns properly with the radiator shell and cowl. The fenders are just as smooth underneath as they are on the top. Underneath, the frame and chassis components are original and clean showing traces of original paint and retaining most of its original hardware. There is no evidence of any rust damage, neglect or repair. The iconic and original 1932 radiator shell and grill are original and excellent. This is a super solid and straight car.
This 1932 Ford was likely repainted once many years ago. Today, this paint shows overall wear but has a charming look to it. The interior appears to be partially original and shows minimal wear. It is very clean and matches the personality of the rest of the car. The chrome and stainless trim items such as the original bumpers, headlights, cowl lights, tail lights, and hubcaps are in good original condition. This is a very clean and presentable car that looks good inside and out.
The car has its original, 50 horsepower Model B engine. For reliable driving, it has been fitted with an aftermarket Tillotson carburetor, which is fed through a modern, electric fuel pump. A new water pump has recently been installed. The car starts easily and runs well. The car is equipped with its original 18” wire wheels, which have been fitted with older, replacement white wall tires.
This Deluxe Fordor Sedan is fitted with many factory and period accessories. The car has the rare, dual, side mounted spare tires-a feature rarely seen on 1932 Fords. It also has cowl lights, dual taillights, a rear mounted trunk rack, wind wings, a quail radiator cap and bud vases in the interior.
Original 1932 Fords rarely become available in today’s collector car marketplace. Most original cars were modified or built into hot rods many years ago. Finding an original, unmolested example of a 1932 Ford that has never been completely restored or modified is certainly a rare find. This Model B Deluxe Fordor is a very usable and authentic example of an iconic 1932 Ford that will become a great addition to any collection. Priced at $35,000.
1929 Packard 640 Custom Eight Phaeton
The car was reported to have sold new to a Mr. Fairchild of Pennsylvania and held by his family until 1964. It was restored in 1964 by his son and driven on the famous Glidden Tour. It was sold to a known collector in Indiana in 1994 and I purchased the Packard in 2014.
The older restoration has held up very well and the Packard can now be driven on any current Tour with confidence. From 2014 until the present time, it has been maintained and upgraded by restorer Bob McKeown in Ohio. The focus was to make it “Tour ready” and retain the charm of the older restoration. Inovices show over $22,000 spent from 2014 to 2108 to achieve the goal. Items replaced included the wiring harness, heavy duty battery cables, added turn signals in the running lights, a rebuilt water pump, radiator, etc. etc. The list is long and I would be happy to discuss it with any potential buyer.
As you can see in the pictures, the Packard has a dual windscreen, new side curtains-PLUS the originals, a chrome stone guard and a compliment of period driving lights, sliding boy hood ornament and wind-wings.
A personal inspection will also disclose how well the paint and chrome have been maintained over the years. Priced to sell at $110,000.
