1932 Ford Model  
1932 Ford Model B Deluxe Fordor Sedan       After building nearly five million Model A Fords from 1928 through 1931, Ford introduced a completely new car for the 1932 model year. The new 1932 Fords were completely redesigned from front to rear. The fenders were fully crowned and had dramatically, flowing proportions and the radiator shell was gently rounded with a separate, vertical grill assembly. The bodies were also completely redesigned to have a lower belt line, a lower top line, a raked windshield and the running boards were mounted directly to the frame, which, gave the car a lower and more modern appearance. The 1932 Ford would be a one-year only body design that would later become the most iconic Ford ever built. The popularity of the 1932 Ford cannot be overstated. Nearly 85 years later, the 1932 Ford is still the one of the most significant and sought after cars ever built.      Two models were built during 1932. The Model 18, which was powered by a new, V-8 engine and the four-cylinder, Model B. The Model B engine was a redesigned and significantly improved Model A engine. The power was increased from 40 to 50 horsepower and the engine featured a balanced crankshaft and a mechanical fuel pump instead of the old, gravity system used on the Model As. The intake and exhaust ports were improved and the engine had a redesigned camshaft and cylinder head. The new Model B engine proved to be robust and was considered my many to be more reliable than the troublesome new V-8.     This 1932 Model B Deluxe Fordor Sedan is a very original car that was just removed from a long-term collection. It has had some light cosmetic restoration over the years but has never been taken apart or restored. The body and fenders are all Henry Ford, original steel. There is no fiberglass or reproduction sheet metal on this car. The body is original and rock solid. The doors open and close as they should and fit the body with even gaps and margins. The hood aligns properly with the radiator shell and cowl. The fenders are just as smooth underneath as they are on the top. Underneath, the frame and chassis components are original and clean showing traces of original paint and retaining most of its original hardware. There is no evidence of any rust damage, neglect or repair. The iconic and original 1932 radiator shell and grill are original and excellent. This is a super solid and straight car.    This 1932 Ford was likely repainted once many years ago. Today, this paint shows overall wear but has a charming look to it. The interior appears to be partially original and shows minimal wear. It is very clean and matches the personality of the rest of the car. The chrome and stainless trim items such as the original bumpers, headlights, cowl lights, tail lights, and hubcaps are in good original condition. This is a very clean and presentable car that looks good inside and out.    The car has its original, 50 horsepower Model B engine. For reliable driving, it has been fitted with an aftermarket Tillotson carburetor, which is fed through a modern, electric fuel pump. A new water pump has recently been installed. The car starts easily and runs well. The car is equipped with its original 18” wire wheels, which have been fitted with older, replacement white wall tires.    This Deluxe Fordor Sedan is fitted with many factory and period accessories. The car has the rare, dual, side mounted spare tires-a feature rarely seen on 1932 Fords. It also has cowl lights, dual taillights, a rear mounted trunk rack, wind wings, a quail radiator cap and bud vases in the interior.    Original 1932 Fords rarely become available in today’s collector car marketplace. Most original cars were modified or built into hot rods many years ago. Finding an original, unmolested example of a 1932 Ford that has never been completely restored or modified is certainly a rare find. This Model B Deluxe Fordor is a very usable and authentic example of an iconic 1932 Ford that will become a great addition to any collection.  $29,500.00

1912 Metz 22 
1912 Metz Model 22 Roadster       Charles Herman Metz was one of the great, American industrial pioneers of late 19th and early 20th Century. By 1897, he was the founder of the Waltham Manufacturing Company and was selling over 15,000 bicycles a year. In 1898, his company began building self-propelled vehicles and motorcycles. The company continued to evolve and by 1909, Charles Metz was building automobiles under his own name from a factory in Waltham, Massachusetts.     Initially powered by two-cylinder engines, Metz introduced its first four-cylinder automobile in 1912 and called it the Model 22, based its horsepower rating. The car could be purchased as a kit or as a fully assembled vehicle. Both were offered only as a roadster and built on a 90” wheelbase chassis. The fully assembled roadster sold for 495.00 in 1912.      This 1912 Metz Model 22 roadster is an older and very well preserved restoration of a complete, authentic and original car. It was likely restored in the 1960s. Unlike today, it was still commonplace to find good, solid examples of brass era cars during these early years of the hobby. Today, many brass era cars have been assembled from a variety of new and original parts, however, this 1912 Metz appears to have always been a complete and well cared for example.     Although its early history is unknown, this Metz Model 22 roadster spent a good portion of its later years as part of the well-known Wells Auto Museum in Maine.  Later, it became part of another well-known, east coast collection of brass era automobiles.    The older restoration has since mellowed and the car now has that charming look that collectors of brass era automobiles desire. The paint is extremely presentable and shines with an appropriate soft glow that one would expect from a fifty-year old paint job. The interior is black leather and has also appropriately aged itself while still being in very good condition. The folding top assembly is also in good condition and raises and lowers with ease.    The simple body consists of a scuttle cowl, which flows nicely into a double-bucket seat assembly. This Metz really resembles a speedster or racer of the 1910 period with its exposed oval gas tank and rear mounted “mother in law” seat. The long flowing fenders and short running boards add to the sporty nature of this early automobile. All of these components appear to be original and are in solid condition.     The car is well appointed with brass acetylene headlamps, matching sidelights, a rear mounted taillight, a brass running board mount carbide generator and bulb horn. All of these brass accessory items are period correct and in good, original condition. The original radiator retains its original Metz emblem as well as a 1950s era car club plaque.     Under the hood, this Metz retains its original, four-cylinder, L-head engine, which is clearly stamped with the VIN number of 16610 on the aluminum crankcase. The mono-bloc engine features exposed valves and a removable cylinder head with the word Metz embossed. A period, Bosch high-tension magneto supplies the power for the ignition. For reliable driving, a later Model T Ford carburetor has been fitted.     The engine is coupled to its original friction drive transmission assembly that is controlled by the vertical lever inside the body. The friction drive assembly transmits power to a transfer case assembly, which continues to send the power to the rear wheels via dual, chain drive. The car still retains its original 30 x 3” wood wheels with clincher rims and the tires are older reproductions. All of the mechanical components appear to be in very good condition and close inspection shows they are free from wear or damage. When you carefully study these components, it becomes further evident that this was a low mileage, unworn car prior to its restoration.       Although Metz automobiles were built from 1909 through 1920, it is believe that less than 100 examples exist today. According to records, about ten, 1912 Model 22 roadsters have survived. Of those, this example is likely to be one of the most authentic of the known survivors. This Metz is a sporty and good-looking brass- era roadster that will certainly make a statement whether on display at a show or in a collection . Priced fairly at $25,000.
