Check Out This Collection of High Quality Classic Fords For Sale

The collection includes a 1932 coupe, a 1932 highboy roadster hot rod, a 1932 Cabriolet, a 1932 Victoria, a 1932 pickup, a 1934 Victoria, a 1937 coupe, a 1939 convertible, a 1940 coupe, and a 1957 sedan. There’s not a lot of text in the ads, but it’s apparent that all the cars in the collection are of high quality. Located in Greer, SC, the collection is listed for sale here in jalopy journal. The 1932 above is a V-8, five-window coupe. The price is $59,000. It is also listed in an individual ad with many more pictures here.

If there is a quintessential hot rod, it’s a 1932 Ford roadster. This one is a highboy with around three or four inches chopped from the top. The body is genuine 1932 Ford. Powered by a small block Chevy, it’s built to resemble the style of the 1950’s. The price is $95,000. There is an individual ad with many more pictures here.

This one is a 1932 Model B Victoria. The Model B designation means it’s powered by a 4-cylinder engine. Note the absence of the V-8 badge on the headlight bar in front of the grille. The Victoria body style is sort of between a five-window coupe and a two-door sedan. Victorias have a shorter top than a sedan, but a longer top than a coupe. The ad says there were only 724 Model B Victorias built in the 1932 model year. The price is $85,000. There is an individual ad with many pictures here.

This one is a 1932 Cabriolet. Not a lot of information is provided, but I can see it has had some modifications. The interior is red and the wheels appear to be from a 1935 Ford. It is priced at $68,000.

This 1932 Ford pickup is priced at $22,000. It looks like a good example of a seldom seen truck. There are several pictures here in an individual ad.

This is a 1934 Victoria. Looks like a nice restored car. The price is $42,000.

This is a 1937 standard coupe. It’s an early 1960’s hot rod with a 283 Chevrolet engine, 1939 top-loader transmission, and original rear end. Many of these conversions were done in the 1960’s. J.C. Whitney, Honest Charley’s, and other suppliers offered an adapter for connecting a small block Chevy engine to the 1939 transmission making the swap pretty simple. A stock 283 has approximately double the horsepower of the original engine. That’s asking a lot of that ’39 Ford transmission. Don’t stick your foot in it. The transmission won’t take it. I know because I had a 1940 coupe with a similar conversion. Many more pictures are posted here in an individual ad. The price is $38,000.

This is a 1939 Deluxe convertible. It’s priced at $59,000. It’s been spiffed up with some non-original wheels and hubcaps but otherwise appears stock.

This one is a 1940 standard coupe. It is reported to have the factory original paint, the original running gear, and a mostly original interior. There are many more pictures here in an individual ad. The price is $55,000.

This is a 1957 Ford Custom 300. It is described as a moonshine hauler. No more detail is provided, leaving me wondering if it has a known history as a transporter of untaxed spirits, or if it was built to replicate a moonshine hauler. It certainly has a sinister look to it anyway. The seller says it has only been driven 30,000 miles. There are many more pictures here in an individual ad. The price is $35,000.

    I love the ’57 Ford Custom 300. I think his prices are high, however, except for the ’57, these are not the vintage cars that really interest me. I think the Seller should simplify the process with clear pictures and the fewest links possible for any prospective buyer to see additional pictures of the cars. Several of the links did not even work when I tried them.

    Pity about the ’32 Highboy Roadster having a Chev mill stuffed into it, otherwise it would be very desirable.

    There’s not a car in this collection that I haven’t lusted over at some point in my younger life. He started trying to help sell these last year some time with a similar “ask me questions” info skimpy ad. You see the result…………all this time and not a single apparent sale. Keep in mind, this is well targeted advertising (here and on Ford Barn as well) as JJ and FB are specifically populated by the folks who are VERY passionate about this era and style of car. As primo as these are, they’re well over market on the ask.

    Although, there are some very desirable cars, I got to agree that the prices seem kind of steep. I do love the 1940 Standard, though.

    Reminded me of my ’57 Ford. Wish I still had it.

    If you look at what rotten 32’s are selling for these days, the prices might not be as bad as you might think, if you are looking for a stocker. Forties and the 57 high priced but beautiful.

    Good luck to the new owner.

    My favorite of the bunch is the ’32 Vicky, my favorite body style by far. I sure wouldn’t turn down that pickup either. The coupe with the V8 is great but it looks like the original engine is long gone. I’d say that one is a ’35 or ’36, sporting a postwar carburetor. In the vendor’s defense, there aren’t many original ’32 (or ’33) engines around anymore.

    Man this gets old, Uncle Bob steals my thunder. He is exactly right these cars have been on the market for several months. Also, if I hear one more comment about SBC in early Fords , I am going to go nuts-o , that hi-boy is the perfect Hot Rod Roadster, and guess what allot them have SBC, get a life and do your homework, there hot rods they can be what ever the builder wants them to be, “Custom Cars”. You don’t like it, go build your own!

      @Joe Haska. Why is it that Hot Rod builders don’t build a Chevy Rod with an SBC engine in it? I think it’s because Chev didn’t build a decent car that could be rodded back in the day so they commandeered a Ford. I’ve had a good life, done my homework and owned a Ford “T” bucket fitted with an SBC which went like stink, but always wished that the builder had fitted it with a Ford mill. It’s the same with the Cobra Fake Snake. Originals had FORD engines, so if you are going to build a copy of a Cobra then fit it with a FORD engine!

    • Uncle Bob

      Ken, I’ve made Joe’s toes tender so I’ll leave the SBC in a Ford story to him. Besides, to do it justice I’d need more space than the above article takes. I’ll just say that the beautiful irony of it is the SBC became the engine of choice in it’s time for many of the same reasons the Flathead Ford did in it’s.

      As for claiming there aren’t any Chevy rods you’re probably engaging in argument hype. Granted Ford hot rods far out number them, but that doesn’t mean they don’t exist. You’ve got the Cobra replica market wrong as well. There are a few with Chevy engines, but the owner/builder is severely punished at resale time as that market segment really does prefer a Ford engine (at least in the US, for some strange reason Europeans aren’t as put off by the Chev engine). There is reality and there is strong held belief, embrace your fav………

    Uncle Bob, I am sure its our age, and we just can’t help when people say things and they weren’t there, they are repeating what they heard and thought was true. So when I see statements about history of hot roding, that just aren’t right, I red line and have to try and correct it. It is somewhat a lost cause and now the you have jumped on the bandwagon, I feel like saying “See Uncle Bob told you so too”. Thanks for having my back!

  12. Chad Rickle

    Nice cars but the problem is that the guys that had/wanted them are starting to fade (die off) those are dream prices and thus the reason they have been on the market for so long

      22k for a four banger 32 pickup. If it had the flathead v8 I could handle that. Yes on dream prices for all of them.

  13. Wayne

    Forty Ford standard coupe with “ factory original paint”. I don’t think so, but if you do I have a harbour bridge for sale, cheap.

  14. Joe Haska

    Ken, I guess uncle Bob is leaving this one to me, thanks Robert. To understand this Ford Chevy debate, be it cars or engines, you have to start and take a look at the first Hot Rods, not even called that then, they were “Glow Jobs”. Basically stripped down cars, of many models, reduce the weight go faster, “Simple”. Then they realized that if the car was faster stripped down, why not start with a faster car. Guess what the Fords were faster to begin, and they were starting to find a few speed secrets to make them even faster You need to understand it wasn’t about the marque, it was about speed. It was also about the most bang for the buck and Fords provided that, so it just made sense. The Ford Flathead was far and away the best choice to get the best speed, and you didn’t have to be Ed Iskenderian or Vic Edlebrock, The kid in his dads garage could do it and the now icons, like Ed and Vic were manufacturing speed parts and they were predominantly for Fords. Fast forward to the end of the war (That’s WWII) all the G.I.’s back and they wanted fast cars. Remember there was almost 5 years of no new car production, and the war took its toll, on the resources to build a car. Go back same situation ,fast cars stripped down with hoped up motors. The only easy way ,also the cheapest, early Fords 28 to 34 mostly. Why not Chevy’s, too much wood in the body’s ,even though they out sold Ford’s, they had a short life (termites?). Then in the late 40’s and early 50’s, Detroit was catching up , and OHV V-8’s are in new cars. What do Hot Rodder’s want speed. Easy way to do this , big motor in a light car. Not bad, but not the best they were big heavy, expensive, what was the solution. Easy, 1955 the small block Chevy changed everything, almost overnight. Hot Rodder’s had a light Hot Rod,and now they had a light OHV V-8, game over, SBC dominated and the Flathead Fords went to the scrap yard. Why? Because Hot Rodder’s want to go fast, they don’t care about brand names they care about speed, period. The best example of this would be “The Doane Spencer Roadster” , without a doubt the most iconic 32 Roadster ever built, by one of the most talented mechanic / builder/ hot rodder of the time. That car would not even exist today, if Doane wouldn’t have sold it to Neal East, and it wouldn’t be in the condition its in today, if Neal hadn’t sold it to Bruce Meyer. The reason being, Doane Spencer was all the things I said, but he was an innovator a hot rodder, so he wanted to go fast, and he kept modifying the car to do that, until he got a 57 T-Bird and he thought he could go faster, with it. A few years after Neal bought the car, he put wire wheels on it, quite the rage at the time, when Doane saw it he literally ripped Neal end to end, saying he had destroyed the car, ” You couldn’t race it with those wheels”. When Bruce restored the car, one of the concerns was at what stage, of the cars history, would the restoration represented. Well, I have written a lot and I am not sure I have made my point, which is, if its a Hot Rod it can have whatever, for the power train that the builder thinks will meet his needs. there are no rules right or wrong, only the desire to build what you want and how fast do you want it to go. If you want to know Hot Rod History , read Hor Rod history books written by Don Montgomery, Dain Gingerelli and Pat Ganaul and Ken Gross, they know it all ,and they are good friends of mine and much of what I know, is not only my personal experience, but because of the time I have spent with them over the years. My personal experience is, I have a 34 Coupe and I have been building it for 55 years! Why, because I had too, I was always trying to get it right! It has had 5 engine changes, 3 flatheads, 1-SBF, 1 SBC, 3 different transmissions all with 3 pedals, 2 or 3 rear ends, 4 paint jobs , 3 different interiors and I can’t even guess how many different tire and wheel combinations. also, I don’t own a trailer and I never check with the weatherman on were I am going to drive, my best compliment is he drives it like he stole it. I hope you can forgive Hot Rodders for not having a Ford in Ford, and a Chevrolet in a Chevrolet, its not that important, how fast you can go, maybe………Joe

    Hi Joe. Thanks for the great write up clarifying the hot rod story. Although I personally am not a hot rod guy by any stretch of the imagination, I’m sure that a lot of readers to BF will also enjoy the history you have presented. At least now I understand why people put a SBC in anything that they want to go FAST!! Although I am a purist re old cars and bikes, I am always amazed by the standard of the engineering that hot rodders put into their rides when I study them at motor shows. All is forgiven. Ken
