Grandpa’s old Fords – 1925, 1930, 1931, 1932, 1937

Our grandpa was a great Ford T fan. The Ford T was by far one of his favorite cars, together with the ’39 Chevrolet.

He used to tell us lots of funny stories about the first motorized days. I wish I could travel back in time to have fun with those cars with him.

He kept this Ford T for many years. It’s 100% original and running.

 

 

 

1925 Ford T Pickup

This ’25 Ford T pickup was one of our favorite car at grandpa’s junkyard. We used to sit there for hours and dream about making a rat rod out of it. It was a great basis for a rat rod actually. Now It’s gone! :-( This pictures is all that’s left

 

 

 

1930 Ford Model A

This Ford model A was quite complete and was a good basis for a restoration or hot rod project.

 

 

 

 

 

1930 Ford Model A

This one was not a grandpa’s car. During one trip with my uncle across Argentina we found this great pick up in the middle of nowhere in the patagonian desert.

Stoping for a few pictures was a “must”. A great desolate landscape .

 

 

 

 

1931 Ford AA Truck

This great Ford AA Truck was in very bad shape. I tried to “complete” the picture with a ’34 Ford grill that was lying around. It look’s some kind of cool with it.

 

 

 

 

1932 Ford Cabriolet

Here you see two of my favorite cars together. My ’55 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria together with this ’32 Ford.

The ’32 was in very bad shape but was a great basis for a rat rod.

 

 

 

1937 Ford

This car was not precisely on grandpa’s junkyard, but was on the country side in the area. The picture I selected as main picture of this post is one of my favorite pictures of that year. I think it looks just great with all the vegetation surrounding the car and I think the open door gives a special touch to the picture.

Here you have a few more pictures… a great inspiration for a model car. Look at the black and white paint fading into surface rust.

 

 

 

Surprisingly the instruments were still there…

Wow thats amazing!!! Why dont you make a little book with full details of your grandpa T? I’m about to build one, I want to make it full detail, and could find some good pics, but they werent made with a modelist eye, meaning, you see where a tube or cable start, but not where it ends, no undersize pics, few really detailed pics… Something like that would be an immense help specially for people without access to a real car. (Like me in Brazil. There are some around, but very hard to find, even worse to see, impossible to photograph in detail.)
I made a factory 32 and detailed the engine (take a look at overtake.tumblr.com) — also have a 29 woody, still to add the photos — but its only the upper engine details, have no idea what goes under the car, under the instruments panels where is fuel lines and so on.

Hi Overtake, It’s a shame but those are all the pictures we have now. We took those pictures a long time ago. We have no direct access to the car anymore :-(
By the way, I just checked your website, very cool projects! Great skills!
