1932 Ford Deluxe Phaeton©2011antiquecarnut.com

As an antique car nut, I seldom see a car that really gets my attention. I can tell you for sure that this one did!! My son, Gary, and myself attended the Car de Lane parade and car show in Couer de Alene, Idaho June 17th and 18th, 2011 and this car made my day!! What a car!! Ford produced only 923 of these models featuring the new V/8 engine and I’d bet this is one of the very few left restored to perfection. I asked the owner about the history of this car, and his reply was, “I don’t know, I just bought it!” He sure bought a jewel!! No doubt he has deep pockets!!

Enter the model B

This year Ford introduced their new flathead V/8 engine packing a walloping 65 horsepower!! Both John Dillinger and Clyde Barrow of Bonnie and Clyde complimented Ford Motor Company on having an engine with terrific acceleration!! Only 8996 of these roadsters were produced in 1932, so it is no wonder they are in such demand today!
