It took 45 years to accumulate this collection. The following is a little history on the cars.


I first bought the roadster 6-12-1972 out of Wichita, KS. I sold it on 10-26-1974 and bought it back 4-8-2017. It had passed through three owners. The third owner contacted me chasing its history. I later got the opportunity to buy it back.
I bought the Woody 3-1-1975 from an ad in the February 1975 issue of "CARS and PARTS". It's restoration was completed in 1959 by Snyders Garage, Mount Joy, PA. It won a AACA First Place award at Hershey in 1962. Was on the October 1967 cover of Hemmings. It has been in the same place in my folks garage since it was delivered by Pass Port Transport. 43,990 miles on it.

I bought the roadster PU in pieces on 7-25-1976 in East Hartford, CT. The truck had 37,300 miles on it when it was taken apart. It was sold originally to and orchard in northern California. I heard about it at the Lawrence, KS swap meet and chased it down.

I bought the Flower Car in pieces on 10-31-1981. It took approximately 15 years and two owners to get it bought. I bought it in Cotati, CA. It was sold originally to a funeral home in Port Townsend, WA.

I bought the Sedan Delivery on 5-28-1993 from the second owner. He had purchased it from the Postal Service in Marysville, KS when he returned home from WWII. It was his daily driver his whole life. I bought it from his estate.

I bought the Teal Vicky on 5-3-1996 out of Wisconsin after seeing an ad in the January 1996 issue of Street Scene. It was built by Gary's Rod and Restoration in Sobieski, WI and upon it's completion it was featured in the June 1993 issue of Rodder's Digest. It has 16,966 miles on it.

I bought the Red Vicky on 7-28-1998 and had it delivered by Pass Port Transport. It was an original Model B that was built into a street rod, by Virgil Statum, Tulsa, OK, for a customer in 1982. It has 42,830 miles on it, 95% of which were in the San Francisco area.

What a great collection of 32's, and to have the history of each one. Very impressive:). By the way, welcome to the site!

Thought I'd jump in here to keep this post going. For those of you that do not know who "32freak" is,
Doug Mcrae from Topeka Kansas not only loves 32 Fords, but is the go to guy when it comes to sedan delivery conversions. Doug's kit is fabulous, I have had the honor of having Dan Kempanen installing the second one in a tudor for me. My five 32's are first of all the silver Victoria which I've owned for over 26 years, ut roughly 58,000 miles on, redid the car in 1994 as it is now . Full independent suspension, LT1, 700R4. The black tudor I bought about 4 years ago, has 30,800 original miles on it.
The 4-door I bought about 3 years ago, was built over 40 plus years ago, I changed quiet a bit, has an eary flathead against flatomatic setup, 40 column, mustang steering gear, 8" rear, just a great little rod.
The roadster has a iconic pedigree, was originally owned and built by Jack Stirnemann out of St. Louis area. Jack and his brother are notorious for over the top traditional builds and restorations. of famous old hotrods. The roadster is very very special in my collection.It has a Tim Krehbiel relatively fresh full house 59 built flathead with a billet crank and rods,NOS Navarro old heads and manifold, Edmunds air cleaners, 65 half ton Ford 3-speed with a Jeep top loader conversion, 9" early Bronco rear end. It has a perfect two and one half inch chop, with perfect full side curtains, Gennie Auburn dash with old curved glass gauges. The car was put together with NOS bumpers, boards, and fenders, I've been told. I could go on and on but I'll stop. I've owned the red coupe for about 24 years, I traded a dynamite 40 deluxe coupe for it, about 75 miles from my home at a cruise event, and we drove each others cars home and mailed the titles to each other. We both still own both cars to this day. I replaced the entire driveline in the coupe with an almost Grand National motor that put out 560 HP on the dyno, and added a 150HP nitrous setup to it. I raced the car many years ago at the Gooduys event at IRP, my best time was 6.7 seconds in the eighth at 103 MPH.It has a Hughes racing trans, with a Currie housing, Mark Williams gears, axles, etc..I also installed NOS fenders on this car after I bought it. I've driven the coupe to Indy maybe three or four times, raced it, and driven it home, also have driven it to Louisville, St. Paul, Scottsdale, LA, and other cities I cant remember. I'll be 76 on my next B-DAY,and I've been doing this since 1959,and I've owned 35 1932 Fords in my lifetime. John Stimac IMG_0252.jpg IMG_0253.jpg IMG_0255.jpg IMG_0256.jpg IMG_0257.jpg

John,
thanks for the background on Doug - does he have a relative in Texas named Dick ? Your collection is quite impressive as well. Right now, I'd be happy with 1 ! I have a few bits and pieces collected over the years, but they still don't equate to a complete car by any stretch.

Doug,
Great thread ! You have a very impressive collection. I used to live in Tulsa and vaguely remember Virgil.

John, your collection is beyond awesome and the fact that you drive the crap out of them makes it even better. Lots of cool wall hangers too!
