Gateway Classic Cars of Atlanta is proud to represent this 1936
Ford Coupe! The Model 48 was an update on Ford's V8-powered Model
40-A, the company's main product. Introduced in 1935, the Model 48
was given a cosmetic refresh annually, before being thoroughly
redesigned for 1941. The 1935 Ford's combination of price,
practicality, and looks vaulted the company ahead of rival
Chevrolet for the sales crown that year, with 820,000 sold. The
Ford Model 48 has a front-mounted engine, and rear-wheel drive. It
features a traditional body-on-frame design, and was offered with
ten different body styles. Chevrolet regained the sales lead at the
end of 1936, but the Ford still sold well. The look was updated
with an inverted pentagonal grille with all-vertical bars beneath a
prominent hood and three horizontal chrome side strips (on DeLuxe
models). The V8 DeLuxe was called Model 68. A concealed horn, long
a prominent part of the Ford's design, also brought the car into
modern times. The new trucks continued with the old grille. Other
major changes for 1936 were the use of pressed steel "artillery"
solid wheels instead of wire wheels. This particular 1936 has been
cosmetically and mechanically refreshed but remains largely
original with documentation going back to original registration in
California. Originally sold new in Los Angeles, CA on February 7,
1936, the car spent a majority of its life there until sold and
moved to collection in North Carolina. Following a long
hibernation, the car was refinished (with photo documentation
available) before being sold to the current family roughly 15 years
ago. Finished in Washington Blue over Tan Leather Interior, this
'36 is pristine in and out! Powering this 1936 Coupe is a '48 239ci
Flathead 59A-B motor backed by a floor shifted 1939 3-Speed Manual
Transmission with Hydraulic Overdrive. Additional features include
upgraded brakes and axels, Coker Classic Radial Tires, and a
12-Volt conversion. If you are in the market for a stunning example
of early American motor history, this head turning 1936 Ford Coupe
deserves to be driven!
