1936 Ford Roadster
1936Ford Roadster, All Henry Ford original steel
This original 1936 Ford Roadster body had been sitting in a garage for many years until last January when she was pulled out and I took her to a restoration shop. The all Henry Ford steel body was gone thru, fresh metal pans, patch panels, wood and had the shop do all the hard work done. She was fitted onto a fully restored 1936 Ford frame with a freshly rebuilt Flathead motor and is a running, driving car with plenty of original wear and dents left on body to keep the old, worn look. As much of the original black paint was left and new paint was blended in as best as possible to keep her looking like an unrestored84 year old car.
Some of the details of work done:
All new metal floor pans
New metal rockers
New metal tail
New metal quarter panels
36 Frame completely restored
New fuel tank, lines
New brakes converted to juice
New wood made and installed
Rebuilt 59 AB Flathead with dual exhaust (old school skinny pipe style)
3 Speed transmission shifts beautifully
Metal body was rust proofed
New floor pans POR 15 on inside and top coated in black paint
Most everything mechanical was rebuilt or replaced
Only 3,862 of these cars were made in 1936 and many were hot rodded or customized in the early days. This car was a mild custom in the 1940's/50's with some very minor changes such as a leaded in cowl vent (amateur done),has a partially filled dash, inner panel from deck lid was removed, there is a hole for cowl spotlight, etc. Because it's very hard to find an unrestored, unmolested '36 Roadster, I decided to leave most of the small dents (there were no large dents) and kept the paint worn looking. When visitors comes to view my collection, it seems this car is the first they always go to verses my fully restored, more perfect cars.
She drives great but needs some minor finishing to be street legal such as wiring(headlights, taillights, gauges, etc.), glove box door needs hinges, deck lid needs to be stiffened, etc. Seat in car is from a '36 Buick and fits perfect. I didn't want to drill holes in the new floorplans so the seat is not bolted in but the seat does not move and is secure for trips around the block. If you wanted to make the car an original example again, very little would be required, but she'd make a great early style custom. The car is in the perfect position for someone else to take her in their direction as a driver or leave as is. I'm only selling as I am restoring 5 other cars and frankly, need more space and time, so she's up for sale.
Again, this is NOT a perfect car and left with paint wear, scratches, minor dents and fender stress cracks on purpose as I love the old, worn look. She is a very solid car that looks great and stands out. I can send many more pictures or videos of her running and driving. H828-877-5351 or C 828-553-3217.
