In 1932, Ford blanketed much of the automobile market, offering models that ranged from basic coupes and roadsters to the rare sedan delivery, luxurious and well-appointed four-door sedans and convertible sedans. Most importantly, Ford had put high quality automobiles within reach of ordinary Americans with low prices and rock-solid reliability.
One of the rarest of all 1932 Ford models was the Sedan Delivery, of which Ford only built approximately 400. The example presented here was owned by John Deats, the famed parts supplier, for over 40 years.
Extremely well known in 1932 Ford circles, this example is in near perfect original condition and is finished in satin black with the beautiful correct tan mohair interior. Featuring a full race-prepped Winfield four-cylinder engine with Winfield heads and dual Stromberg 97 carburetors, it is also equipped with a 1932 Ford three-speed, floor-shift manual transmission. Sporting a dropped axle, optional and rare cowl lights, a Mallory ignition, and hydraulic drum brakes, this exceptional original example is reportedly in outstanding running and driving condition.
According to the owner, everything is in working order, and the car has a perfectly straight body. As it has remained in Southern California most of its life, it has also never seen any sign of rust. Exceptionally maintained and benefiting from long term ownership from a well known enthusiast, this 1932 Ford Sedan Delivery is being offered publicly for the first time in over 45 years.
