I have been thinking about getting a closed car and mainly a coupe but this Fordor came up it had my name all over it. It has been through 3 owners in the last 30 years and apparently none of them drove it, they all had big ideas that never came true. It only had compression on #1 cylinder so I pulled the head and opened up the tappet galley to clean everything out. Flushed the head, block and radiator out, stuck 4 new coils in it,reassembled and the darn thing fired right up and I drove it around the yard. Only issue now is the spokes are pretty dried out, not sure I trust them.

Wow Lonnie, that is really nice. I also would like to get a closed car some day, especially a Fordor. Feel free to post more about it.

The "billiard table" flat top, squared windows, and overall
proportions of this body are quite pleasing to the eye. :-)

I like the cleats on the rear wheels of the tractor in the background.

The tractor has a set of ARP's half tracks on it. We use it for pulling the dump/manure trailer, almost impossible to get stuck.

... "We use it for pulling the dump/manure trailer" ...

So, we ought to see a lot of these around Washington D.C. ?

I don't guess I have ever seen a set of those before. Is that a WD?

I would bet a WD45.

Great looking car Lonnie. A good find. I'm like Dave Wells, I too would like to find a Fordor, altho I still have the space issue to deal with. Oh well. Any rate, you should definitely send the 4 wheels into your favorite wheel re-spoker! Baby them 'till winter maybe, then send 'em in when the snow flies, which for you folks probably will be end of September...LOL.
