1936 Ford Model 48 4dr Convertible
Always a pleasure for AUTOCHOICE to represent classic cars that have been restored to near perfection. WOW what a fine example with this 1936 Ford model 48 4dr Convertible! At first glance you will think this car is a number one, I invite you to scrutinize all 171 plus photos carefully, and you will find this car is NOT perfect but from 10 feet away you certainly would think it was. For some this would be very good news, because, this would mean you would have a very nice driver. No one wants to drive a number 1 car, that's no fun, first of all that is not logical or practical. This would make a good touring car to drive in a club. The engine runs great, starts up real easy and really is quiet, at least for a convertible. You will have heads turn when you drive down the road. Towards the end of the photos, AUTOCHOICE has tried hard to show all the places in the paint that are age stressed. But as you will see, as long as you are 10 feet away, most of these can't even be seen. Tires are new and the car is ready for that long desired touring trip with your local club. Maybe that parade coming up on the 4th of July. People will be ex tactic to see this classic coming down the road. Especially those seniors citizens! Don invites you to call him at (509) 301-1498 any time with any questions. He looks forward to talk with you about this exciting convertible.

The Model 48 was an update on Ford's V8-powered Model 40A, the company's main product. Introduced in 1935, the Model 48 was given a cosmetic refresh annually, begetting the 1937 Ford before being thoroughly redesigned for 1941. The 1935 Ford's combination of price, practicality, and looks vaulted the company ahead of rival Chevrolet for the sales crown that year, with 820,000 sold.Contents 1 1935 2 1936 3 1938 4 Sources 1935 1935 Model B Woodie
The 1935 Ford was a thorough refresh on the popular V8-powered Ford. The four-cylinder Model A engine was no longer offered, leaving just the 221CID (3.6L) V8 to power every Ford car and truck. The transverse leaf spring suspension remained, but the front spring was relocated ahead of the axle to allow more interior volume. The body was lowered and new "Center-Poise" seating improved comfort.
Visually, the 1935 Ford was much more modern with the grille pushed forward and made more prominent by de-emphasized and more-integrated fenders. A major advance was a true integrated trunk on "trunkback" sedans, though the traditional "flatback" was also offered. Outdated body styles like the Victoria were also deleted for the year.
Two trim lines were offered, standard and DeLuxe, across a number of body styles including a base roadster, five-window coupe, three-window coupe, Tudor and Fordor sedans in flatback or trunkback versions, a convertible sedan, a woody station wagon, and new Model 51 truck. Rumble seats were optional on coupe model. An oil pressure gauge($4) and two windshield wipers were optional. If one got the optional radio, it replaced the ash tray.1936 1936 Ford Model 67 pickup truck
Chevrolet regained the sales lead at the end of 1936, but the Ford still sold extremely well. A new club cabriolet model was introduced with a fully framed windshield and weatherproof top, and the convertible sedan gained the popular integrated trunkback design.
The look was updated with an inverted pentagonal grille with all-vertical bars beneath a prominent hood and three horizontal chrome side strips (on DeLuxe models). A concealed horn, long a prominent part of the Ford's design, also brought the car into modern times. The new trucks continued with the old grille. Other major changes for 1936 were the use of pressed steel "artillery" solid wheels instead of wire wheels.1938 1939 Ford Model V8
In 1938, Ford announced new styling for its cars. Only a V8 was offered, either a 60hp (45kW) V8 or a 85hp (63kW) V8. A new dash was used, with recessed controls for safety.Sources "Directory Index: Ford/1935_Ford/1935_Ford_Accessories". Oldcarbrochures.com. Retrieved 2012-05-31.
