Marv Shetler's 1932 Ford
1932 Ford Tudor Sedan owned by Marv Shetler of Scott Mills, Oregon. Marv has been interested in hot rods since he was 15 or 16 years old, and he bought his first car when he was 16 or 17 years old, "a completely stock and original 28 Ford Model A pickup which I managed to pretty well destroy as I sought to make into a hot rod," Marv told Sondre Kvipt of Kustomrama in 2020. "My second car was a 1932 Ford two-door sedan which I purchased when I was 18. It had a 265 Chevy motor with a 39 Ford transmission, dropped axle, tuck and roll interior, SW gauges, a rake - all the good stuff back in the early 60s." Marv bought the car in Kansas in the fall of 1962. He was in college in Kansas, but lived in Oregon, and he drove the car from Kansas to Oregon at the end of the school year in 1963.
Back home in Oregon, Marv bought a stock 1941 Chevrolet Coupe so he didn't have to drive the 32 to work on some of the rough roads they had. "I sold the 41 and bought a 56 Chevy 2-door." He had the 32 at the same time, but he believed he sold that in 1964.
