For Sale: 1936 Ford Model 48 in Kentwood, Michigan

Vehicle Description

The 1936 Ford was said to have brought Ford in to the modern era of motoring. I could not agree more considering I think the 36' Ford Cabriolet is one gorgeous automobile. Classic styling, swoopy fenders, "fully enclosed" interior, rumble seat and flat head Ford V8 done in the very classic blue over tan. Now what I think is even a better story is the fact that this particular car comes out of the Estate of renowned GM automotive engineer William "Bill" Collins. You may have heard of him, as he was one of a few men responsible for putting the GTO in to GM's lineup along side John Delorean and quite arguably the very first of the Muscle Cars. He would continue on to work and develop projects for GM through the 1970's until Delorean lured him away to work on the radical DMC12 project. After that, a little less known story is that Bill went out and founded Vixen....Yes, Vixen, a motor home that could fit in a standard garage with excellent aerodynamics, effective space utilization and efficiency utilizing a turbo diesel engine set up from BMW. If you have never seen one, you should check them out. After the Vixen did not take off as hoped, he went back and consulted for Pontiac until retiring in 1992. There is no doubt that he will hold a special place in automotive history. That being said this was the last car to be sold from his collection and we are very pleased to present. First of all, the mechanicals on this car are tremendous, it starts perfectly, runs great and drives down the road very nicely. The body is in great condition, the paint is in good condition as it has a couple paint chips, but still shines very nicely. This car boils down to a fantastic driver quality car that has had excellent care and storage throughout his ownership. I have personally driven the car and it sure is a delight. The top is older but still functions well and does its job. In addition, the Ford starts very easily, idles almost instantly, has no funky quirks, does not smoke or leak and is ready to be enjoyed.
