  Very, very nice. You should send a pic to the gallery.

  BrianCT, Thanks for the comments. I took your suggestion and
submitted the photo for Gallery consideration. I'm still looking to
complete a set of useable 18 inch wheels. I have five, but two of them
aren't straight enough.

  1932 Ford B-35 V8 Standard Phaeton (Right-Hand Drive)
Made In Canada
Jay Friedman, Decatur, Georgia.

I bought my phaeton and had it restored in Kathmandu, Nepal in 1975, when working there for the United Nations, then shipped it home. (Note the Nepal license plate.)

  Hi Kerk, Thanks for the reply regarding '32 wheels. I just returned from a
trip and didn't see it until now. I tried contacting you via email and
personal message, but they don't seem to be enabled. I'm still learning
my way around the new website, so I might be missing something. I just
now enabled both email and personal messages for my account, so they
should work for you. Glenn

  Jay, Nice looking Phaeton! The history is interesting as well. The '32
Fords that have survived for 77 years sometimes have fascinating stories
to tell. After owning mine for 18 years I learned that it was a semi-
famous hotrod in a previous life. Glenn

  deluxe40 Can you give me your e-mail ? I am in Ma. if that helps. try it again.

  I'm . In California, so shipping might be an issue.

Yours is even nicer and also has an interesting history.

If you could get a little closer you would see that the 1975 paint on mine is showing its age, making it a driver only, though it gets second prizes in the EFV8 Club Touring Class. Mechanically, it is in excellent shape: the motor runs very well in spite of its Detroit Lubricator carburetor, the brakes and steering are excellent and everything works except the fuel gauge.

If you have old copies of the V8 Times, there was an article about it in the Oct. 1978 issue.

I remember that article on your Phaeton! I bought my basket-case
Phaeton in 1986. Every night after work I scanned one of my old V8
Times magazines looking for articles on the '32. I would read one of
Dave Cole's "Model 18 Notes" and then run out to the garage to dig
through boxes of parts to learn what I had. Great fun!

Digital photography does wonders for my car too. The twenty year old
nitrocellulose lacquer I sprayed in my garage has cracked in several
places. Nevertheless, I still drive it at least once every month and it
still gets its share of smiles and waves.

Dave Cole helped me in a major way with my phaeton, both personally and in his Model 18 articles, which are my favorite in the V8 Times.
