Prices ranged from US$495 for the roadster, $490 for the coupes, and $650 for the convertible sedan. Production totals numbered from 12,597 for the roadster to 124,101 for the two-door sedan. Ford sold 298,647 V8-powered 18s in 1932 and except for the fact Ford could not keep up with demand, the essentially identical four-cylinder B would have been a sales disaster. Dealers switched customers to them from the V8, and even then sold only 133,539, in part because the V8 cost just US$10 more.

There are currently more 1932 Fords on the road than there were when the car was new. In fact, as of several years ago, there were currently more 1932 Fords registered just in the state of California than Ford ever built. But that doesn't mean you see them every day.

The client brought this car in to have the radiator support brackets strengthened and fiberglass repair work done. 


Mocking up to make a template for the new support brackets.


After...
