Car description

Due to past issues concerning payment timeline and vehicle payment guidelines ( see the only negative feedback in 14 years! ) if you can not meet both of these stated clearly in my auction, lease do not bid. Thanks, ow lets get to this hot rod....

I have owned the 31 for 7 months or so, and 600 - 700 miles of driving. I purchased the car back in February ( trailered home ) from the Macon Georgia area. The car was built over a 2 year period by a guy (Gene) who`s 80 +/-years young, nd continuing to add to those 60 plus years of building. This one believed to have been built in the late 50's - early 60's.

When the car was purchased, t already had the Y block engine, hich was set back 8 inches. Front seats are also set back. The frame appears to be original 1931. The Y Block is a 292, hich has been totally rebuilt, dded are the special heads ( 57 G). These are fresh, eaturing a 3 angle valve grind. An Isky cam (E4) was installed, long with electronic ignition. Cooling is handled by a brand new aluminum radiator.

The exhaust consist of a set of vintage homemade headers with dual exhaust, lowing thru a pair of Raptor mufflers dumping out before the rear end. This set-up sounds great. Power goes to a 1950 Ford F1 3 speed (floor shift), hru an open drive line to a Modern Ford 9" rear end. The rear is a 3.70 gear and has been fully restored. Rear has newer chrome coil overs.

The front end has a new Super Bell with a 4" drop. Split wishbone . New tube shocks were added in front along with new brakes from a 1940 Ford. All glass, askets, uzzy`s along with window tracks are new. Windshield opens / closes properly. The top is new.

Tires are new, ronts 6.70 x 15, ears 8.20 x 15 all mounted on early Ford 5 X 5 1/2 bolt pattern. I recently found out the RR rim has a bit of a wobble, ave straightened or replacement recommended. Ford half caps .

Headlights (32 Ford), aillights, rake lights, ash lights work like they should. New 32 style gas tank. No high beams, o horn, o heat, o emergency brake, o spare rim/tire. Turn signals handled by left arm.

The body is all Ford and is an honest car. Filler in the body is minimal based on magnet check. Front fenders have had metal repair from inside, here splits are typical. The paint is a few years old, nd very nice for a driver. Hood side panels are painted to match and come with the car. However, ue to the headers they don't fit correctly. Interior is sparse. Dash is a 1932 Ford instrument panel with gas, il, emp, mp gauges are SW. These along with Speedo ( 46 -47 Ford ? ) function properly. New wiper motor and arm (single) are mounted, ut not yet wired in. Rearview mirror only.

The 2 bucket seats have been recovered and look good, owever they sit high and won`t work for a taller person ( I`m 5'8" ) without some fab work to the lower seat structure. Plenty of leg room. No back seat.No headliner, oor and rear panels, ick panels, loor is plywood .

* I will be adding more pictures of the interior / seating of the 31.

** The 1931 is listed for sale at multiple locations, ue to this I reserve the right to end the auction early. If reserve is met, he auction will run its course.

To clarify my description for a fellow ebayer, he text is mostly from the builder except for miles I have driven, nd minor changes I have done. Another issue to address is over seas shipping. While I have sold to both England and Finlandin the past, typically prefer to sell within the continental US. If the winning bidder is an over seas buyer,I will work with what ever shipping company they choose to use, ut coordinating all this will be solely the responsibility of winningbidder.
