AutoHunter Spotlight: AACA-winning 1934 Ford 5-Window Coupe – Racheal Colbert @AutoHunter

Advertisements

Today’s AutoHunter Spotlight is on a 1934 Ford Standard 5-Window Coupe purchased by the seller’s grandfather from the original owner’s widow in 1963. It underwent a body-off restoration completed in 2012 and is a multiple AACA winner from years 2013 through 2018.

The all-steel body is finished in Dearborn Blue and black paint and features a single driver-side mirror, hood louvers, front and rear chrome bumpers and a color-matching spare tire cover that houses a full-size spare.

New angora trims the bench seat and door panels.

Powering the Ford is the original 221cid 21-stud Flathead V8 mated to a 3-speed manual gearbox.

The odometer shows 36,435 miles, which the seller notes only a few of those were added since the restoration.

Shipwreck containing 91-year-old Chevrolet found in Great Lakes – Carter Nacke @ClassicCars.com Journal

A ship that sank in the 1920s in the Great Lakes has been found with a 91-year-old Chevrolet coupe in the hold.

The Manasoo sank on September 15, 1928, in Georgian Bay in Lake Huron, mlive.com reported. It is thought that either the 116 cattle on board shifted to one side of the ship during a storm, causing it to tilt and take on water, or a stern door was open during the storm.

1929 Model A Ford Sport Coupe Misfire

Advertisements

Upon starting the A today I was experiencing a bit of a Misfire, heard a tracking sound and found a plug arcing out on the advance & retard lever. The car has a Simmons head which means the plugs are in a non standard position. New one on me, maybe the weather? All cured by a little bit of insulation tape. I have a modern cap & leads to fit but I like the old style strips!

 

Under the Hood

Doing a little bit of under hood/bonnet painting before the weather gets too cold to get outside. Not exactly concours but looks a bit better. Much more left to do, but as you can see we’ve come quite a way!

Took a trip to the Birmingham NEC to visit the 2016 Classic  Motor Show.

A number of celebrities such as Edd China and Mike Brewer were in attendance.

American cars were well represented across the board in terms of both vehicles and clubs.

I popped in and had a chat with the guys on the MAFCGB stand and was made very welcome!

A day out all around!
