Very well appointed Deluxe Cabriolet with a superbly executed, older restoration! Retains show worthy appeal throughout with absolute touring capabilities! A host of welcome features make this Model 68 drop top one to truly admire sitting still, and out on the open road!
Further refined body lines and improved suspension, the 1936 Ford is arguable one of the most desirable of collectible Fords! The Center-Poised suspension, new grill design, wider stance, better weight distribution, it can be said it was certainly one of the best driving examples they ever made to that date!
We are very pleased to offer this 1936 Ford Deluxe Rumble-Seat Cabriolet finished in Poppy Red with Brown Leather seating surfaces & matching naugahyde interior surround, and beautiful Tan Stayfast canvass convertible top! Powered by an updated Canadian-cast C59A 221ci Flathead V8 producing 85hp and 3-speed manual transmission, it starts up and runs with great ease. It features a new electric fuel pump & filter, tuned Stromberg 91-99 carburetion, correct 6-volt generator charging system, 24-stud heads, and period correct engine details throughout! It performs wonderfully, and starts without any issues! Options include working AM radio with original under dash speaker box, BF Goodrich heater, amber GE fog lamps, rear rumble seat, rear-mounted spare tire with painted steel cover, fender skirts, dual outside mirrors, trumpet horns, beveled glass interior rearview mirror, V8 exhaust turn-down tip, front cowl vent, electric windshield wipers, front & rear bumper guards, and The Lester Tire Co. 6.00-16 4-ply wide whitewall tires!
This example comes to us from the former owner of the last 4 years where it was part of a very large collection located in Quebec, Canada. He was a prominent car dealer in that area and was able to tuck away a great number of personal pieces of the years, ultimately totaling several hundred cars! The cars in his collection were always maintained regularly and ready to be enjoyed at a moments notice. Each were driven sparingly, just often enough to ensure they stayed lubricated and in drivable condition. This Cabriolet showcases a restoration completed prior to his ownership, likely finished about 15 years ago. It will showcase only minor visible wear from being driven, but overall continues to show quite well in all respects! The chrome and bright work remain very sharp, the convertible top looks brand new, as does the leather interior completed by Bertrand Dionne. Both front and rear passenger compartment possess floor carpeting, and snap-in access panels are provided for easy cleaning. The under hood presentation is highly detailed with correct radiator hoses/clamps & water cap, Ford Motor Company generator, decal stickers, cloth-covered engine wiring harness, spark plugs & wiring, etc. Inside the passenger compartment, a battery cut-off was added to the firewall for battery preservation while in storage. Along with all the factory gauges, which all appear to working perfectly, you will a set of extra gauges under the dash to compliment the originals while in use. These are a more accurate water temperature and oil pressure gauge. Lastly, integrated turn signals for optimum safety while out for cruises!
It is becoming more and more difficult for us to find honest, original examples such as this one on the open market today. Many cannot be pried from the hands of owners, while others have already left for overseas collections, and some that fall victim to customizers and street rodders. Granted, this example retains an all steel body, spare tire cover, & running boards, the fenders were replaced for fiberglass reproduction versions during the restoration. We feel this super solid, original example represents itself very well and should make for a great touring and weekend show car! Please feel free to call with additional questions or to schedule your chance to view it firsthand! Thanks for looking!
