« Part 2: Spoked Wheels are my first challenge Part 3 of 1933 Ford Fordor Sedan series Part 4: The sides can now begin »

The next step was to find some drawings and dimensions of the Ford….

Photos of the Ford Fordor Sedan aren’t as common as 2 door sedans or coupes.

I put out a number of requests for assistance but friends who tried also struck out like myself.

I resorted to contacting the editor of the Restored Cars Magazine who gave me a photo and few leads.

One of the leads lead to a gent in Queensland who suggested the NSW Early Fords Car Club.

That lead to a visit to some folk in western Sydney who have a beautifully restored 1933 Ford Fordor Sedan.

The visit to the owner wasn’t as good as I’d hoped as the owner was hospitalized along with the car have a flat tyre so it wasn’t able to be taken out of the garage for photos.

Frustrated indeed but the resolve was to contact the NSW Early Fords Car Club publicity officer who was extremely helpful as the car had been featured in a club magazine.

At last photos to work with, but best of all a few pages out of the clubs library restoration manual with all the dimensions.

Now I could start the process of scaling the drawings I’d found.

Oh my, what have I started!

Here are the photos from the NSW Early Fords Car Club.

My dad and his car before he fixed it up.

Mum & dad on there wedding dad with the car all fixed up.

A similar car, the photo from the editor of the Restored Cars Magazine.

YES, Dutchy.
If I stop I start thinking about the what and how, I’d have stopped for sure.
Just got to dive in and do, pretending I have an idea about what I’m actually doing.
