Vehicle Description

1936 Ford 5 Window Coupe

There's something special about the 1936 Ford 5-Window coupe. The styling combines the traditional upright grille with a streamlined body to create one of the best-looking cars of the period. Many of these iconic coupes 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 nicely detailed hood vents, and stylish rear with rumble seat- it all feels like this has all been transported intact from 1936.

Our Ford 1936 5 window consignment we see here in the East hallway, has a sellout crowd looking at it and I'm sure the internet is blowing up its hot rod section with folks looking for a rodder that has great lines, nice blue metallic paint some Centerline chromed 15-inch wheels, and power to spare with a 350ci V8 engine with a forced injection blower. Thank you very much for my latest trophy.

Exterior
With the parts from various cars to make it complete, all steel was sandblasted and then filled in where needed, then coated with satin finish epoxy primer. It received all new glass, running board covers, top insert, door insulation, window seals, weather stripping, insulation and soundproofing. Body matching blue headlight housings flank a vertical ribbed grille that curves under the front of this car. Small chrome bumperettes are curving inward on either side of the grille, and wonderfully sculpted fenders take their shape from the front of the car and run rearward and meet up with a running board in the middle. All bathed in metallic blue, a round roofline with a canvas/vinyl insert as machine stamping of the day could not create a one piece roof. Tinted glass is now in, and on the back, a rounded over trunk line is the same curvaceousness as the rear fenders which are like a first hill of a roller coaster. Pointed oval vertical tail lighting is pan the bottoms of there fenders, and more shiny bumperettes are gracing the rear roll pan. The bottom curve of the rear of this car, aft of the trunk lid links much like a classy shoe tip, and polished as such! Throw in some 165SR15's on front and much larger 31x18.5-15's on back and I'm almost smelling smoking rubber and the car has not even started.

Interior
Door panels lead us inside but first we need to pay attention to their makeup. This includes light gray uppers in a suede like broadcloth complete with buttons, shiny levers and cranks with large cream aged bakelite escutcheons, and a blue door pull much like modern day. Vertical black tuck and roll panels made from more suede like broadcloth are the lid sections and blue carpeting lines up for the lowers. Inside we see more of the same materials and colors, and this time the buckets have the square tufted and buttoned inserts in black, and bolsters in light gray complete with piping on their edges. A custom center 'hump covering" is carpeted black and houses the shifter with a wood knob. A tilt steering wheel is topped by a wood rimmed rally steering wheel. The dash presents in full metal jacket mostly blue save for the instrument cluster which is aluminum and this houses white faced vintage look VDO gauges, and a few small lights. In the center are some chromed toggles and the ignition. For the passengers is a glovebox to throw their belongings within, and it's painted in body matching blue. Faded blue carpeting covers the floors, and some nifty carpeted mats cover it to protect it from too much outside dirt. A new stereo radio is within this console as well just north of the shifter. A tight headliner has alternating dark and light gray panels as it covers the entire passenger compartment. This also appears to be a suede, but is actually broadcloth. The trunk has been carpeted and uses some blue tuck and roll panels for accenting.

Drivetrain
Lifting either half go the cowled hood reveals a nice and shiny 350ci V8engine. On back is a TH350 3-speed automatic tranny, and way back a Ford 9-inch rear spins those rear biggies. Lest I forget the single 4bbl Holley carb aided by a forced injection blower also nicely polished. Sanderson coated headers are there for the exhale, and a stainless steel exhaust is seen making its way from the mill to the rear roll pan.

Undercarriage
The body has been tubbed and rear axle shortened to accommodate those large 31-inches on the back. Nicely painted black floor pans have a solid X frame within which float on and the front independent coil springs, and rear leaf springs have a place to go in case something lets go. Front disc braking is on and rear drums are on the back.

Drive-Ability
Nearly every car that arrives in Classic Auto Mall I personally try to drive. It takes only a few minutes to see if it is what it says it is, and it is an interesting aspect of my job. Very few cars I'm so impressed with I drive twice. Chalk this up to one of the very few, as I'm enamored with this car..in many ways. It has a very smooth ride, responsive turning, smooth transmission, nice power, and it comes to a halt quickly.

The builder/consignor did a great job, and someone will have the pleasure to drive it many many times, and they will enjoy every minute of it in its current sedan iteration. Round of applause please, and I'll give it a blue ribbon!
