    32 chevy roadster.

    I've been in the custom/hot rod thing for donkeys years, go to loads of shows/weekends through the year but never take enough notice of
    details of some cars I like. I'm thinking of looking about for a ford 32 roadster,but I've looked at hundreds over the years and ask the
    question can you get proper wind up side windows, Its all very good if somebody just use there roadster for the odd day out when the
    sun is out, but I want to use as all weather vehicle, my wife only like this shape model where I like 5 window coupes as well, cheers Richard.

    With a bit of jiggery pokery you could fit winders in. Glass would be the easy part as its flat

    Dearborn Deuce, Premier manufacturer of an all steel 1932 roadster body with a fully disappearing convertible top.

    The price will take your breath away but I think someone makes a glass version. Someone on here has a beautiful red one, it's in Scotland but I can't remember his name
    Money talks; unfortunately mine just says "goodbye"

    We used Tetanus as our only car for over 2 years, rain or shine and yeah it does get a bit tired very quickly, but roll up windows on a roadster? Not for me, I made a bolt on hard top, eventually with lift up/out windows (bit like a 2cv) we only used it twice like that. A hat, gloves and a set of waterproofs win everytime

    And on the 6th day Man created god.
    Tetanus

    If you want a 32 with wind up side windows, you need to find a convertible. Lots of money, not a lot made. Never gonna find one. The Jago 32 roadster was based on a convertible, but it didnt have the correct screen posts or door furniture available.

    I used to have a 32 roadster (fibreglass) with a removable roof which looked like it was a soft top. I cut up the innards of a car door with wind up windows and fitted this to the 32 doors, that way I had wind up windows. But they didnt fit perfectly like the Dearborn so always a few drafts.
    I may live in East London, I may have a number plate that reads "Chopt", but I do NOT use 6" wheel spacers!

    Thanks for the info, I will have to take more notice the next show, I've seen a couple of 3 window coupes and quite like them too, that would solve the weather problem
    but won't solve the wife problem, HA-HA, Richard.
