There's something special about the 1936 Ford Model 68 Touring
Sedan Convertible. 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,
from the flathead V8 to the removable center posts. So you'll
understand classic open-top motoring at its finest.
Many of these have been turned into restomods 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 (and
rare) trunkback rear - 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 Washington Blue paint seems to
represent both the iconic and premium presentation of this Ford. It
continues to have a nice gloss in the sunshine, and the whole car
has the right look of care. We were told it was fully restored in
the mid-1990s, and today's presentation shows it has only been
driven responsibly since then. So it's an impressive style with
just the right hints of maturity.
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 that gives an easy view of
the cool vintage gauges. The whole dash has a great classic style.
This is a proper sedan, which means four full doors and a spacious
back seat. So it's nice that this has a good cruising attitude. And
underneath the well-fitting boot, a full folding roof. And this
soft top has extra appeal. The b-pillars and full roll-up windows
make for a well-enclosed car. But you can remove the pillars and
fully roll down the glass. Now the center section has a similar
appeal to the cool phaeton cars.
Open the hood, and the correct feeling continues. The 221
cubic-inch flathead motor is the iconic V8 that earned Ford its
powerful reputation. This one has a clean style that has been
dressed correctly to tell everyone at the car show that it's more
about being a 1930s machine than a hot rod. There's a similar
situation with the exhaust that still makes that unmistakable
flathead sound - a tune you won't be able to get enough of as you
row through the three-speed manual transmission. And when it's time
for highway/byway cruising, this even has a Columbia two-speed
overdrive rear axle.
This is an impressive classic that runs like a true cruiser. So if
you were looking for a pre-war premium drop-top distinction, this
one lets you arrive in style. Call now!
