Ask DJ Lyons: 1932 3-Window Ford

1932 3-Window Ford

Do you like vintage cars?

One day, my husband and I went out to a restaurant to eat breakfast. The restaurant, called Tipton's Cafe, is located on West Depot Street, in downtown Greeneville, TN. Much to our surprise, the road was roped off due to a car show that was going on at the time.

Fortunately, I had brought my digital camera with me as I wanted to take a picture of this amazing pie they make at this restaurant. After we ate, we started strolling along the roadway looking at the various cars.

This 1932 3-Window Ford car really caught my eye. It reminds me of pictures I have seen of my paternal grandmother taken standing on that foot-board area or sitting inside of an old black car. She started driving back in 1922 when she was 22. It brought back all kinds of pleasurable memories of her stories.

One of my favorite stories is that she used to drive a black car that did not have glass in the windows. I'm not certain if she meant the front windshield as well. But the side windows and back windows, as I understand it, were covered with curtains to try to keep out the elements and to keep her warm in the winter. Can you imagine driving a car that did not have glass windows? Well, if you were a convertible driver, I guess you could. But she grew up in Indiana that gets a lot of snow. It's hard for me to imagine being inside a car that only had curtains to keep out the winter cold, ice, and snow.

To watch a short video that shows you some of the features of the car shown in the above picture, the car called a 3-Window Ford that was made in 1932, click 3-WINDOW FORD to watch it. This video is 38 seconds long. Enjoy!

Just for the fun of it, here are some other videos of vintage Ford cars I found on YouTube.
