Chip – 1932 Ford Model 18


Hey everybody! I’d like to introduce you to Chip.

Chip is a 1932 Ford Model 18 powered by a Flathead V8 engine with a manual transmission. Most of you will not have heard of the model 18 as it’s not very common to find one. Most of the 32 Fords became classified as model B’s and Chip basically looks like a stretched model A. Upon closer inspection you’ll see that it’s a much different vehicle starting off with the suicide doors which take you back to the gangster era of automobiles the body itself is in excellent shape as is the frame and undercarriage. Some restoration work was completed in the early 90s including the paintwork. There are a couple of small runs in the paint evident which I have tried to show in the pictures provided. The interior is in excellent shape as well. Even the fabric portion of the roof on the exterior is solid and does not leak. Taking this car to the next level would basically mean changing window runs and weather strips and that’s pretty much it. The engine runs excellent and the fuel system has been upgraded with an electric fuel pump. As you can see in the pictures the manual fuel pump is still present on the engine but has been bypassed. We have a new mechanical fuel pump that we were going to attempt to put back on the car to try and make it more original but that work has yet to be done. The tires are slightly oversized but are brand new as the tires that we’re on this vehicle when it came out of long-term storage were basically shot . The only other available alternative tire wise at the time would have been much more low profile than the car should have had and we want to try and maintain the original ride height as opposed to making it look like something that had been rat rodded. To be honest this is not the type of car that we would normally be offering up for sale as it doesn’t really fit our business model but it came to us as part of a package deal with several other cars from an estate sale. I’m sure this car will bring a lot of smiles to a person who’s specifically looking for a good example of a early 30’s era Ford.

Now Chip is officially sold but if this is the type of car you are looking for please still feel free to contact us a or call us at 905-537-3673 and we’d be happy to help you!
