Receipts for cars they bought, (Jordan and 32 Ford) among the many things that his grandparents kept, and They Kept Everything



from Frank at http://familyephemera.tumblr.com/

11/23/28 my (Franks)  Great Grandmother purchased a green 1929 Jordan RE Sedan for $1290. My Great Grandfather had recently passed away so maybe that’s why she kept this receipt (better safe than sorry kind’a thing). This great looking auto was built in Cleveland, which is a nice reminder of how that city competed, and lost, against Detroit as a center of auto manufacturing. The sales contract lists some interesting add-on options that they bought including 1 brake light, and not 1 but 2 bumpers that my family splurged on. It also states that this beast of a car came with an engine that put out 27.3 horsepower. I would guess that it did 0 to 60 in about half a day.

10/27/33 my Grandfather traded in the Jordan for a used 1932 Ford Deluxe Coupe which is indeed the classic Little Deuce Coupe. He received $130.70 for his Jordan on the purchase of the Ford, which cost $443.70. This Ford is just great looking and has a rumble seat. What a cool concept those things were. I’m sure they disappeared for some good reasons, yet still wouldn’t it be cool to own a car that had one. (people in rumble seats were horribly injured in car crashes)
