1936 Ford Coupe
1936 Ford Coupe
A beautiful coupe with unusual grace of line and contour. 3 can ride comfortably in the wide seat. Upholstered choice of Mohair or broadcloth, luxury appointed throughout. A parcel shelf in back of the seat, dome light, rear window louvers, rumble seat at extra cost. DeLuxe equipment only. Said the advertising for the 5-window coupe.
This sporty looker with its founded aerodynamic lines, chrome trimmings and rumble seat, was the perfect getaway car for the newlyweds and possibly another couple. It's on consignment, and presents in blue, and tan broadcloth interior with rear rumble seat in black vinyl. A few faults in the many coats of exterior paint, a fairly clean and tear free interior, and an unrestored 221ci flathead V8, one could scoot away real fast, and in total comfort. The engine currently does not run.
Bathed in several resprays of Royal Blue, we see some scratches, wear off areas at the seams, crazing, and underlying rust dimpling underneath the paint coat. Running boards are a bit wavy, many due to underlying rust on the undercarriage. A vertical ribbed grille in chrome is slightly bent and flanked by a single bullet style headlight on either side. Outside of these, are rounded fenders which make their way around the wheels and attach to each other via a running board which is body matching paint. A single simple curved bumper is upfront and has rusting and dimpling. The dual cowled hood has plenty of open venting, and some horizontal trim spears to highlight the sleek hoodline on either side. This is a 5-window coupe and sports a new vinyl top in black. Hanging off the rounded fenders with a styled long stalk are a single taillight on either side and seen between them is a metal encased spare tire just above the rear bumper. This spare leaves enough room for access to the rumble seat, which is covered in black vinyl and remains in good condition. Blue steel wheels are covered in the center with a chromed moon cap, and on the edges with trim rings.
Tan broadcloth covers virtually every surface save for the dash, which is the metal painted black. It has simple gauges within the panel in front of the driver, and an original steering wheel fronts these instruments. A tan broadcloth bench stretches from door panel to door panel and allows plenty of room for 3 adults. Headliner is nice and tight and rubber covers the muddied floors.
Plenty of heavy surface rust, and some invasive rust areas are underneath. Floorpans, a horizontal frame drilled cross brace, and slight areas of the rockers and frame are involved with invasive rust. A bit of greasing blowback is seen on the transmission case, and the exhaust is rusted.
A better than most barn find with useable panels on the exterior, plenty of trim, a nice interior surviving all these years (possibly redone) and a snappy new vinyl roof insert. Nice lines, not perfect, but abs overall fair example of the 1936 5-window coupe complete with rumble seat, bullet headlights, and a beautiful design line.
