PRICE REDUCED - This 1936 Convertible Sedan is the Trunk Back model which was a Spring introduction in April 1936.
It was purchased by the present owner in the early 1950s and used as his regular, back and forth to
work, driver for many years. It has been driven less than 500 miles since a total frame off, ground up restoration. Refinished to perfection in the original Spring color of Light Fast Maroon. The interior is in brown genuine leather. It is an outstanding example of a rare, low production, open car. The bodywork is exceptionally straight. The paint work is completed with the addition of the original pattern gold stripe. All of the chrome was restored to show standards.
All restoration work was done to achieve authenticity to the original standards. The dash and window
moldings have been properly wood grained. All of the gauges are original and in perfect working
condition. The original odometer shows 97925 miles. The tan canvas top is new and in outstanding
condition. It has the "Three Position" top which can be set in the fully closed position, the fully open
position, and the rarely used half way down position, which gives the car the appearance of an open
front Town Car.
The engine is a correct 1936 flathead V8 with cast iron heads and aluminum intake. Fully rebuilt during
the restoration, it starts quickly and smoothly and quietly with the typical sounds of flathead Fords. All
the wiring is correct cloth-covered stock. It has the original three-speed manual transmission with
synchromesh on second and third gears. Despite Henry's insistence on mechanical brakes, this
Convertible Sedan performs and stops in a manner that gives the driver complete confidence. The
chassis is completely restored. The original wheels are equipped with original style hub caps and trim rings with the proper 16-inch Firestone wide white wall tires.
