    Wanted - 1932 Ford Tudor Windscreen Hinges

    Wanted - A pair of 1932 Ford Tudor Windscreen Hinges (new or second hand).

    Believe they are the same on 5 window,Tudor, Fordor and Victoria.

    Bought a new Windscreen frame but discovered that the Tudor is missing the hinges required!

    Thought I would try on here before trying to get a set from America.

    Do any of the UK traders stock these?

    Also need the mounting screws for the windshield swing arms.

    Any information gratefully received.

    Cheers!
    Brendan

    Take a look at the Speedway website then order some through Langy.

    Who cares If It's glass or steel, It's still a hot rod.

    Thanks for that but I don't think they do them. Bob Drake does.

    That looks good! and cheaper than buying a set ($130.00 pair at Bob Drakes)
    These don't look like ordinary hinges. Do they have a particular name ? So I know what to ask for.
    Thanks for the picture though, its a great help!
    Cheers

    Merv Barnett kindly made me some as above a few years back. Worked a treat.

    I have a pair of original '33-'34 hinges, clean and de-rusted. They look like the ones in Martin's Macs link, or the steel parts of Mel's ones (i.e. without the chrome bits that go on the frame). £55 posted for the pair.

    In fact, just like these: http://www.macsautoparts.com/ford_me...ord-sedan.html
    Looks like they may be slightly longer so would need sectioning to suit a '32?

    Thank you for the offer of the hinges but I would really like to get the correct ones. Its less hassle for the guy building the car for me.
