    32's with a roof on.

    I know the 32 roadster is the car of choice for many but I like 'em with a roof on! More specifically I like 5w's as I love all those detailed body lines and the fact that they are less smoothed out than the 3w. I guess the 3w styling was considered more streamlined back then.
    Not sure where this pic came from on the net but it touches a spot for me. Has anybody got any more shots of it?
    Anybody else love 'em?

    I think the 3 window is more elegant but the 5 window is tougher looking. I also like 28/9 A's for the same reason yet 30/31 A's don't seen to do it for me ?

    The 5 window thing might be down to watching American Graffitti on the big screen too much, I lost count at 100 though I also had to watch' Lady sings the blues' as many times.

    steve i agree, 5w fully fendered coupes are really nice - i think the proportions of it are better than the 3w but then i think that about most of the early fords, got load of pics but none of the car you have posted up.

    That fiver at the top of the post is just as about perfect as you can get(imho)..obviously modified but still retaining all its character....I think that over sanitisation can spoil an otherwise great car(again just my point of view,)....on the question of five against 3 windows..I love `em both, but the fiver edges it slightly on the fact I don`t like suicide doors really...and lastly..and I never tghought I`d ever say this..but..I think I`m prefering full fenders as well.gulp!!..I`ve built a few cars and totally over finished them..result..sold within weeks of finishing them.
    Plumpcars..thanks for posting the pic, and I hope there are a few more shots of it to come.

    regards, Nige.

    Deuce Five Windows

    I agree, the Deuce Five Window is the ultimate Hot Rod for me too.

    I'm with you on the fenders Nige! I'd really like to see more of it.
    Guys thanks for those, some good variety there.
    Glad I'm not the only one who likes them.
