Flathead, Ford Model T, A, 32,40 Vintage Hot Rod, VLV H.A.M.B.
First Start for 1923 Model T barn car
This '23 Model T had not been run in decades. Pulled the engine and gave it
a full rebuild, then re- installed and overhauled the chassis with mostly
used Model T parts. The car will be kept in the original rusty condition,
as pulled from the barn......but she runs now!
Last licensed in 1948, Ford Model T's like this were popular with farmers.
This was originally a touring car, but the back seat part of the body and
the convertible top was tossed, and a homemade wooden bed put on to carry
produce to market.

Genuine original old 32 Ford barnfind first run out after some engine
tinkering!. Stored since the sixties in North Dakota. Does have a 1940 type
replacement flathead in it, but that was a sensible improvement in the
day... Also look at first road drive
Another video to watch is this, history of the 32 Ford.really
Blown FLATHEAD! RADICAL CAM! CHROME THUNDER 1932 Ford Roadster!
McCulloch Supercharged 41 Ford Flathead V-8! This is a flathead- the Ardun
valve covers are actually simply covers that we had cast. And the video is
CHROME THUNDER, an early production 1932 Ford DeLuxe Roadster, was bought
by my uncle, a WW-II Navy pilot, in 1946. It became one of the legendary
hot rods that burned up the streets of Memphis during the 1940's to mid
50's. Street racing was king then, and uncle Walter raced this car on Main
Street in downtown Memphis as well as the former B-17 bomber base at Halls,
TN where drag racing east of the Miss. began in 1946. A practical joker,
Walter frequently fueled the car with skywriting gas and drove through
downtown Memphis-smokin' out the streets in retaliation for local coppers
ruthless harassment hot rodders. Parked in 1962, the car sat for over 40
years. We rolled the car out of its resting place in 2003 and the car took
to the streets again in 2005. The Supercharger oil seal failed 3 yrs ago, and we
decided to install an experimental cam based on the old KR Wilson Harley
Davidson cams. It was ground in the 1960's for veteran Bonneville World
Record holder Paul Kosma. This cam is one of the MOST radical flathead cams
to date. The light spot on the right door is where the clear paint has
peeled back. WE buffed the body and applied clear which has become quite
dull over the last few yrs. This winter, the original steel body, which
features lead work done by my dad Captain Jack II in 1959, will be
re-buffed and cleared again.
It's not a restoration and never intended to be. It's just an old hot rod-
slightly ruff around the edges and unrestored, but running with the
original gas tank, radiator, and nearly 70 year old Firestone white wall
The dash insert is from a 1931 Pierce Arrow- turned upside down. The car
features an original pressed front axle- done in 1948. Individual Exhaust stacks and a hot vintage cam bark a
sound resembling the radial engines which powered the aircraft my uncle
flew- the F6F Hellcat and F4U Corsair.
All of my family who rode in this car back in the day have passed on. This
living breathing piece of American culture history soldiers on....
