1936 Ford DeLuxe 5 Window Coupe
Looking close up at this Henry built Ford, you can see that the top has been chopped 3 inches, in perfect proportion for an old school hot rod stance. The roof is filled correctly, the cowl vent and drip rails have been smoothed, the taillights are frenched nicely into the aft fenders with 1959 Cadillac bullet lenses, and the brilliant Olympic White Pearl paint job and raging flames that suggest there is something HOT under the hood. And there is! The engine is a new 6.2 liter LS2 crate motor, backed by the GM 4L60E automatic overdrive transmission. This little coupe accelerates quickly and smoothly when you push the throttle and a Currie 9 inch Ford rear end delivers plenty of power to the road. With a custom Mustang II front suspension, power steering and four wheel power disk brakes, this is a car that is safe and fun to drive and it has plenty of stopping power when you need it.
Inside, the coupe is finished in lipstick red – an upholstered masterpiece by craftsman Frank Martinez. It has a LeCarra wheel on a tilt steering column, Ron Francis wiring harness, B&M Quicksilver shifter, Glide seats, Vintage air conditioning, and a Kenwood AM/FM/CD sound system. New WSW radial tires wrapped around 15 inch steelies make the car look just right, too. Inside, the dashboard is decorated with pinstriping by artist Howard Zeller. This is the kind of machine that makes every true rodder stop and look. It is a textbook combination of early hot rod style with modern dependable drivability. This car will not only win awards in car shows, but more importantly, it delivers the intrinsic reward of driving enjoyment, no matter how far down the road you go.
Chopped and dropped. This is a well designed car that responds instantly, rides like a new car over bumps in the road, and gives the passengers the luxurious comfort of a sophisticated sports car. This cool old school ride will give you and everyone who sees you a good ol’ nostalgic rush. This is the way they used to do it – wild paint, bigs n littles on steelies, and a bullet proof drive train to let you have a little fun with it. This car should never, ever be trailered.
As time goes by, there are less and less of these genuine Fords around. The ’36 models are becoming much more desirable since knockoff copies of the Deuce, the Model 40s and ‘37 coupes now flood the market. The body on this 85 year old coupe is original factory steel, but the fenders are fiberglass. It is a hot little car that will give you years of pleasure. It needs nothing but a new driver. With just 400 miles on the new drive train, the car has been mostly idle since the owner passed away. Offered at a price far less than the investment, this Ford must be sold, so there will be no trade offers considered.
