There's something special about the 1936 Ford Model 68 Deluxe
Roadster. The styling combines the traditional upright grille with
a streamlined body to create one of the best-looking cars of the
period. This one remains faithful to the original idea with
everything from the flathead V8 to the rumble seat. So you'll
really understand classic open-top motoring at its finest.
Many of these iconic roadsters have been turned into hot rods over
the years, but this one is more about an honest 1930s experience.
The gently rounded fenders with their peaked crease through the
middle, the highly detailed hood vents, neatly dipped bumpers, and
stylish rear with integrated spare tire - it all feels like this
has all been transported intact from 1936. And everyone loves the
correct V8 wheel covers with iconic white walls. But really, we
know your favorite part is the greyhound hood ornament that was
reserved for the best Fords of the 1930s. And the blue paint seems
to represent both the iconic and premium presentation of this Ford.
The whole presentation is quite authentic and honest, so it makes
for an easy car to both love and drive.
While the convertible top's real intent is for occasional use, it
looks quite handsome when it's in place. And when you fold it back,
there is quite an authentic and attractive presentation. The dark
tan leather interior looks handsome and authentic against the deep
blue exterior. Even the door panels are done to match. You get a
classic banjo-style steering wheel, and that gives an easy view of
the cool vintage gauges. In fact, the whole dash has a great
classic style. But as much as you love this part of the interior,
it's what's behind it that might be the most iconic part of the
setup. This is a true rumble seat roadster, and it's detailed,
eight done to the proper step plates on the side of the body. So
now you understand why this car is kept in driver-quality
condition...because after all, everyone from friends to parades
will be asking for the rumble seat experience.
Open the hood, and the honest feeling continues. The 221 cubic-inch
flathead motor is the ionic V8 that earned Ford its powerful
reputation. This one has been dressed correctly to tell everyone at
the car show that it's more about being a '30s machine than a hot
rod. There's a similar situation with the exhaust that still makes
that unmistakable flathead sound - a tune that you won't be able to
get enough of as you row through the three-speed manual
This is the stylish classic Ford that's an exceptionally
strong-runner. That makes for a unique, vintage, and all-around
awesome cruising package. Call now!
