This 1933 Ford "B" Model was purchased new August 4, 1933 in Greenfield, Indiana by Mr. & Mrs. Ostermeyer. Mr. Ostermeyer passed away shortly after buying the car and Mrs. Ostermeyer kept it and drove it occasionally until her passing in November of 1958. The car was bought at public auction on June 13, 1959 by Frank Cecil for $355 and after his passing the car was sold to John & Carolyn Bowser, Fountaintown, IN on August 6, 1993. The gentleman I bought the car from purchased it in the late nineties from a former bass player of Bill Monroe's in North Carolina. There are page after page of fine details about the car and all the service done to it over the years, the last thing written in the big book was August 27, 1984.
It still wears it's original paint and all I have done was wash it, it would shine like crazy with a buffing but the paint on the fenders is a little light and would probably buff through. There is no rust through on the car anywhere, just expected minor surface rust underneath. There's a small dent in the passenger door. The interior is all original material and even sports the back glass shade. The gauge cluster was changed out but I still have the factory gauges. The 4 cylinder was replaced with a Flathead sporting Edelbrock heads and intake with two 97's, a mild cam, headers, and newer spark and alternator backed by a 39 Ford transmission and juice brakes on all four corners. The wires where replaced with 15" steel wheels and radials. The gas tank was replaced. The car runs and drives great, I've put several miles on it since I bought it. If you know anything about these cars you know how rare a 33 B model sporting original paint and interior is. I want a car I can get in and drive across county and I can't afford to leave this car sitting all the time nor would I ever "build" it into something more modern therefore I'm hoping someone will appreciate this car for what it is and baby it the rest of its life.
