Submitted by the proud owner, Kent Robarge, in Golden, CO.  "The 31 year old t-top coupe is "Give me a ticket" Red (recently repainted), very nice drivers paint job. Goodyear Eagle GT II white letter tires are mounted on original factory wheels/rims/center caps. The original black vinyl interior/seats are almost perfect un-restored condition. Factory A/C, alarm system, PS, PB, tilt/telescopic steering wheel, 4 speed M-21 Muncie. Under the hood, the 350 CI/ 300HP is a GM Goodwrench 4 bolt main/two piece rear seal crate motor, casting numbers indicate the small block was manufactured sometime in the late 1980's. On the top is an Edelbrock performer intake manifold with a Weber four barrel feeding the stock exhaust manifolds to the stock dual exhaust and mufflers. Looking good Kent, thanks for the pic!


Total production of these convertible coupes in 1932 was 1,000 units.  They originally sold for $935.  The 223.98 cu. in. in-line L-head six has 82 horsepower @ 3400 rpm. Submitted to us by the current owner, John Lorenz of Dobbs ferry, New York.  John says the current paint scheme (yellow body, black fenders and trim, red wire wheels, red interior) is not original.  We think the accents are perfect for this era.


The vehicle was originally purchased at Heron Motors in Cooksville, Ontario, Canada and is currently in the care of Bob Wright in Dryden, Ontario.  To the best of his knowledge, he is the 4th owner.  The car had a sacked 305 in it when Bob purchased it but unbelievably when he contacted the previous owner Bob found that the guy still had the original 302 motor and original rally rims.  After a few bucks changed hands the 302 was put back in its proper place and Bob was the proud owner of a numbers matching, very original car.  The car has since been appraised at almost 3 times as much as what Bob has into it.  He's looking forward to freshening it up in the next couple of years and we're looking forward to the updates.


This beauty bestows the original 327 with 350 hp backed by a Munci 4 speed.  The owners, Tom and Paula Warner in Colorado Springs, have competed a drive train and exterior restoration.  The interior needs minor touch up; the brake console & upper dash pad are in process of being repaired.  The car is all original except the the carbs and manifold.  A dual quad intake manifold upgrade was done, which was an option for that year.  Tom is currently looking for the factory build sheets and documents.


This Canadian Galaxie, originally built in Oakville, Ontario and sold from Rigby Motor Sales in  Blenheim, is now in the loving hands of Guy Gallaway in Kitchener. It's an all original numbers matching auto that has placed 1st 3 years in a row at the Ford point shows. This Galaxie has the original paint, interior, and glass.  The only thing changed has been the bumpers, Guy had them re-finished.


This 289 2bbl car is all original and has only 32,000 miles on it.  Originally from John's Ford Sales in Indianapolis, Indiana, it stayed within a few miles of Kokomo, Indiana for the first 36 years until the current owner, Ron Provost, purchased it and brought it to Whitby, Ontario, Canada.
