a nicely louvered '40 hood.  It takes a lot of work to louver a '40 like this.  You need to remove the inner brace, plus with the curvature of the hood it's hard to keep the louvered lined up, much less fit the hood in the press !

In the late 70's, a good friend bought a louver press from Rich Riddell and set it up in our shop.

We pretty much punched louvers into just about anything we could find. License plates, interior panels, hoods, nothing was safe.

The 32 pickup was my drag car in the early 80's and sported lotsa louvers inside and out.

The off topic 924 was my wife's car in the late 70's, she never warmed up to the louvered hood and really got cranky when she got a ticket for the louvered license plates.

First design for the '32, Edsel didn't like it on the Deuce so the raised panel  was revised for state-side production. Raised panels that had already been produced went to foreign plants rather than being scrapped and when that stock was used up they went to the flat, louvered side also.
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.

I mentioned that from memory, but today I went back and looked at the source, "The 1932 Ford Book". A publication of the Early Ford V8 Club it is a great reference for everything about our beloved Deuce.  As you know the Model A had the raised surround at the louvers and the '32 was to follow that way, but Edsel had the final say. In the book it is mentioned that the initial hoods done without the extra detail had a tendency to oil can and consequently the fix was to blank out the twentieth louver to add rigidity.
Bottom line is this, the Holy Grail of '32 hoods would be a very early, no raised panel, full 20 louver version. Looking for a Pines insert? Now you need the very early hood to compliment it.

This is a Model A hood with the swage around the louvres. This is the hood the the early 32 hoods were designed after. Edsel didn't like them so they got shipped off to England and Europe/

Do you get much heat over the windshield?  I am curious about that with the top hood louvered,  I remember my 40 used throw a lot of heat when I opened the cowl vent...............just a thought...............the roadster looks sharp!

DavyJ, no I haven't noticed heat from the louvers ... but I think that is due to the DuVall windshield. The wind goes right over your head, instead of like a traditional windshield where the wind hits it and tucks right over in your face. And it sure helps keep things much cooler under the hood. Besides I'm just a louver nut... can you have too many? It just says hot rod to me.

That's true!  But I know a few years back, there was a guy @ the nationals [NSRA] that was selling bolt on louvers... sounds strange but they really looked pretty good.

Thanks for the input Beppie,
I have three pictures at the shop and am trying to make a decision.
Tapered louvers “ I really need to mount the headlights and see where it goes.
No side louvers and may be do the top section.
