A 1936 Ford Model 68 Deluxe Cabriolet. Beautifully finished in Poppy Red with Brown Leather seating surfaces and matching naugahyde interior surround, and beautiful Tan Stayfast canvas convertible top! Powered by an updated Canadian-cast C59A 221ci Flathead V8 producing 85hp and 3-speed manual transmission, it starts up and runs with great ease. It features a new electric fuel pump & filter, tuned Stromberg 91-99 carburetion, correct 6-volt generator charging system, 24-stud heads, and period correct engine details throughout! It performs wonderfully, and starts without any issues! Options include working AM radio with original under dash speaker box, BF Goodrich heater, amber GE fog lamps, rear rumble seat, rear-mounted spare tire with painted steel cover, fender skirts, dual outside mirrors, trumpet horns, beveled glass interior rearview mirror, V8 exhaust turn-down tip, front cowl vent, electric windshield wipers, front & rear bumper guards, and The Lester Tire Co. 6.00-16” 4-ply wide whitewall tires! The chrome and bright work remain very sharp, the convertible top looks brand new, as does the leather interior completed by Bertrand Dionne. Both front and rear passenger compartment possess floor carpeting, and snap-in access panels are provided for easy cleaning. The under-hood presentation is highly detailed with correct radiator hoses/clamps & “water” cap, Ford Motor Company generator, decal stickers, cloth-covered engine wiring harness, spark plugs & wiring, etc. Inside the passenger compartment, a battery cut-off was added to the firewall for battery preservation while in storage. Along with all the factory gauges, which all appear to be working perfectly, you will see a set of extra gauges under the dash to compliment the originals while in use. These are a more accurate water temperature and oil pressure gauge. Lastly, integrated turn signals for optimum safety while out for cruises! It is becoming more difficult for us to find honest, original examples such as this one on the open market today. Many cannot be pried from the hands of owners, while others have already left for overseas collections, and some that fall victim to customizers and street rodders. Granted, this example retains an all steel body, spare tire cover & running boards. The fenders were replaced for fiberglass reproduction versions during the restoration. We feel this super solid, original example represents itself very well and should make for a great touring and weekend show car!
Both fenders are fiberglass.
Any questions welcome.

In 1997 my Sister Yvonne passed away after a year long battle with lung cancer. I decided at the age of 41 that life was too short and I was going to do something for me. For years I had put off buying a sports car. Something always came up that was more important in […]

The 1968 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible just has a friendly, flower-power feel. But, it’s every inch a sports car. With a 427 cranking out 435-horsepower, this does have an alter-ego.
The hot rodders’ favorite canvas was (and is) the early 1930 Fords, but those aren’t the only vehicles that provide a source for souped-up fun. Case in point is the Pick of the Day, a 1935 Chevrolet Master street-rod sedan being advertised on ClassicCars.com by a dealer in Fort Worth, Texas. As the dealer notes […]
Hyundai is promoting its newest — seventh, and smallest — crossover/sports utility vehicle, the Venue, as the ideal vehicle for “the urban adventurer.” “Small SUV. Big city hustle.” it says on the Venue’s page on hyundaiusa.com. So, what did I do when one of the new 2020 Venues arrived for a test drive? Obviously, I […]
The Lincoln Continental is a shadow of its former self. The current-generation model has been supplanted by the Navigator as Lincoln’s flagship, but the Continental name once denoted some of the most-prestigious luxury cars America had to offer. One of those cars was recently featured on Jay Leno’s Garage. This 1958 Continental Mark III was built during […]

The GMC Jimmy (aka Chevrolet S10 Blazer) is a longtime favorite in the 2-door version, much more so than the Ford Bronco II of the same era that has turned, inexplicably, into a popular and pricey collector car. Jimmy’s clean and simple styling is quite appealing, and don’t you just love a vehicle with an […]
OK, so maybe the word “starred” is overstating the case, but if you lived in the Indianapolis area back in 1988, you might remember watching the local Oldsmobile dealers’ television commercials about the new Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme being the pace car for the 500-mile race. You might have recognized the car in that commercial as […]
