1934 Ford 5 window Coupe. DGC3051. VIN 1143051. Same owner for 50
years. It is all stock except for having hydraulic brakes which is
a very good update. It is a total restoration and it's all Henry
Ford steel. Only had 17 miles on it when I bought it. The second
time he started the '34 after the restoration it smoked really
badly according to the owner. He shut it off 13 plus years ago and
never touched it again. What I think he thought was smoke was
actually water vapor? Andrew and I took our trailer and picked up
the '34 and took it to Joe, at Old School Garage, so he could get
it running. Joe did not know what to expect so he moved slowly.
Ended up pulling both heads and the oil pan. Engine was like new.
Joe replaced wheel cylinders and master cylinder. Cleaned the fuel
system, went through the carb. Along the way he found out it needed
a new coil, so now it runs and drives great. Also installed new
Coker wide-whitewall tires. The old ones were really old. The head
lights are not correct. He told me that when he started the
restoration it had a tear on the right front fender that he welded.
Had another spot on the right side of the body that he cut out and
welded new metal in. I found it with my bondo checker and a couple
of other spots. Very minor on all spots most were at 1/16th deep
and one was 1/8th. He did not tell me about the floor pan on the
right side in the trunk. Not really sure what happened but it was
replaced, you can see it in the photos and video. This is not a
show car but it's very straight and looks good. You will find some
small scratches mostly on the left rear fender. Now has 170 miles
and I have driven it the most.
