1934 Ford DeLuxe Tudor, VIN: 1060189
I bought this car in 1969 in Whitmore Lake from a classified ad in The Detroit News (still have that ad). I have no history to the car prior to that, the people I bought it from had the car since the 50’s and couldn’t remember / offer previous ownership history
This car has the original paint on the body and hood, original interior (rear carpet too), top and stock drivetrain (’37 insert main long block). I had the original fenders repainted in the 70’s. Paul Hatton (my dad knew him through Ford Motor Company & the old car hobby) redid the original pin stripping in the 70’s as well (after fenders were done) as the stripes were very thin in a few places.
Original chrome grille, windshield frame, running boards, interior (exception being front mat) etc. The bumpers were replaced but I still have the originals. All real deal Henry Ford parts that were on the car when it left the assembly line.
Feature car for the 40th anniversary of the Model 40 design at the Old Car Festival at Greenfield Village and was out on the show field by the judges stand.
Also invited and displayed at the Ford Motor Company’s 100th Anniversary show at Ford World Headquarters (I drove it back and forth the two days we were there).
There were 3 original paint cars in a row there, a fellow from the Carolinas IIRC with the Standard 33 fordor sedan, mine and Les Henry’s 35 Ford fordor. It made for an interesting comparison of the designs.
I have taken it to several of the car shows in the Detroit Metro area: Farmington, Livonia, the Woodward Dream Cruise and drove out Grand River one day to visit the Baker’s show in Milford over the last several years.
The car is located in Farmington, Michigan 48336 – have many spares accumulated over the last 49 years of ownership (steering column, steering wheel, aluminum intake, much misc, etc, etc … why on earth did I ever buy all that stuff?)
I am looking for another “forever” caretaker, this has NEVER been offered for sale since I acquired it in 1969.
