There are a lot of different styles of 36 Fords on the road but
something about this one really stands out. We have listed a few of
these over the years and this one is just extremely unique. Park it
next to other 36's and with its subtle customizations they don't
even look like the same year/make of car. The car was originally
restored a few years back but during the recent year was entirely
redone a second time transforming it into what you see here. It has
since taken home a 2019 Goodguys "Cool Custom" award and continues
to gain more attention everywhere it is shown. The body of the car
is fiberglass but from the firewall forward it is all steel. The
Champagne color has a beautiful finish and gives it that perfect
touch of luxury and class. It is then accented with Blue
pinstriping which was laid down very cleanly. It has a two piece
style Duval windshield that with its slight backwards slant gives
the car an awesome looking side profile. Custom chrome accents line
each of the side panels and have a great shine as does the V8 nose
trim piece and front/rear bumpers. The Carson top is done in Blue
and works perfectly on a car like this. Typically it is hard to
improve on a Carson top but this one was reworked to be even easier
than it already was to remove and put back in place. Some of our
personal favorite features on the car is the large rear skirts
which is something you don't see as often on this vintage of
classics. They just give it such a cool look and then when you put
on the custom Pines Winter grill cover the car completely changes
looks. These covers were used in the Winter months to give you the
ability to block off the grill which gave your engine compartment a
better chance of heating up so you could actually use your heater.
It is always a conversation starter and people are often surprised
to hear this is a period correct piece versus a custom built cover.
The taillights are the original style 36 lights but to the left one
a flip up gas cap has been incorporated in place of the original.
The wheels on the car couldn't be more perfect. Up front it has
period correct Ford wide 5 pattern wheels that have a painted to
match plus chrome hub cap. These utilize an adapter to connect to a
normal lug pattern.
Pop the hood and you will find a nicely built 350 V8 motor that
runs very well. This car has been road tested and handles longer
drives with ease. The motor has been dressed up with a chrome air
cleaner and chrome valve covers. It is backed by a Turbo 350
automatic transmission that shifts smoothly and transfers power
back to the Ford 9 inch rear end. Underneath the front of the car
is a Mustang II style front end that greatly improves the ride and
works perfectly in cars like this. In back are parallel leaf
springs with lowering blocks. Other features include the front disc
brakes, rack and pinion steering and new optima battery.
The interior has just received new leather upholstery which is done
in Tan and Blue to match the color scheme of the exterior. The
bucket seats are comfortable and both have lap belts. The dash adds
another touch of Blue and is topped with aftermarket Black face
gauges, Optimus AM/FM/Cassette player and the AC vents. The AC
controls are mounted to the bottom of the dash next to the center
vent. The tilt column is also painted Blue and is fitted with a
leather wrapped LeCarra steering wheel. Behind the seats is a
removable panel to access additional storage. The power trunk opens
smoothly and the inside is just as cleanly done as the rest.
This car has a great look and drives just as well. It is one of
those you can hop in and go anywhere.
If you want a '36 that stands out from the rest this is a steal at
