This amazing little two-door sport phaeton was apparently being constructed by the young man posing in it. The time frame appears to be circa 1932-’33, which is based on the modern styling of the grille and shell and the lines of coachwork being built on the diminutive chassis. The metal work is first rate and includes compound curves used on the back of the body, the grille shell, and the rear fender.
The low-slung chassis also appears to be the work of a professional; the only readily identifiable parts of it are a dropped and modified Model “T” Ford front axle and spindles, and wheels and tires that may have been originally intended for use on a small implement of some sort.
The 1931 Model “A” Ford roadster with a California license plate is parked behind it for use as a size reference. Hopefully a reader will know more about this interesting little machine?
