According to Robert Genat's great book on 1932 Fords, the last Deuce body style to go into production was the sedan delivery. Ford built the deliveries by converting Tudor sedans, with the quarter window glass replaced and a large rear door installed with a driprail added above it. Ford only built 400 of these, plus an additional six for sale overseas (we've seen other numbers, but all in this ballpark), making these utilitarian three-door Deuces the rarest '32 Fords ever built. Due to the low original production numbers and the fact that they were used as work vehicles, not many are around anymore. There are, however, a few more than there used to be. Dan Kemppainen at Kemp's Rod & Restoration in Hancock, Michigan, has been converting '32 Tudor sedans into sedan deliveries--the most famous one so far is George Poteet's award-winning version, featured in the July 2008 issue of R&C. George liked it so much, he asked Dan to build him another one.

The photos on these pages show the conversion being made to John Stimac's black '32 and Steve Hayes' blue car.
