The Family Custom Car for 1936: Phaeton or Tudor?
You’ve got a time machine, and it’s set to send you back to a Ford dealership in the year 1936. You’ve got $600 in your pocket, and the objective is to pick your ideal family car (seats 5 people) that will also make a striking pre-war custom.
With that limited amount of cash on hand, the $760 Ford Convertible 4 door is out, as well as the $625.00 Deluxe Fordor Sedan. I would personally be eyeballing 4 door Deluxe Phaeton priced at $590.00, or the $565.00 Deluxe Tudor “Slantback” Sedan. On the one hand, the Phaeton would be the rarer body style, offering a family fun, warm-weather choice, but the Tudor could look wicked with a chop, and there’s no chance your little ones could fall out of the back doors! So which are you coming back with?
