Weemark has a beauty there, too. All stock? Washington Blue?
rokit its nearly stock. its got some dropped springs on it front and rear, juice brakes, a 39 box and a 59ab flattie which has navarro heads and intake. I dont think it is washington blue as I tried to get a match for it but its the wrong shade.
The late Lynn Williams' 36 coupe turned roadster. Built by the Kennedy Bros., I like the longer rear deck.
Here's a great one...Timeless !
My favorite Fords ever. Great thread. Thanks guys!
This is the Iversen Originals car pictured earlier in the tread. Was running a flathead when I saw it at 2011 LARS. The owner said it started off as a coupe.
Another sweet roadster. One of Fords best looking cars !
This thread is full of beautiful cars! HRP
When I was a kid about 13 years old in 1957, I had the opportunity to cruise nights in a 36 Ford Roadster. It was a thrilling experience that I will never forget. The roadster was georgous with metallic maroon paint and a chopped white top. A modified flathead with headers and duals with "true tone" mufflers. I felt like I was a really "cool cat" tooling through the local burger joints like Big Boys and the Green Arrow outside of Philly. I have ridden in so many different machines in my life but few compare to that 36 roadster!!
1953 at Arlington drag strip.
Mine even has the rare 36 option of an external washing machine
I can't believe I missed this thread. Here's one I'm building, but i think i measured something wrong?
At the moment we've gone the 'Hot Rod' route with ours.....
I dont know who owns this but IMO it doesnt get any better.
This is John Koenkes' car from socal...
Hey, that's what it is all about! Very nice looking roadster with a perfect stance.
Can I play ? here's my 36.........
Here's mine just recently acquired.
Here is mine when it showed up from Kansas it sat up side down in a framers field for 40 years.
Here is how it looks now.
Hope to get back on it after the first of the year health issues have put a crimp on things for quite awhile.
Another season, subtle changes. Buick drums on Lincoln brakes up front, rolling on Rocket 'Strike' 15x6 and 15x7 (Rader copies) with BFG T/A's. Can't go any lower in front with these size tires, oh well. Its sure begging for a chopped windshield and top, but its not in the budget yet.
A kinda old thread, but one that so totally needs a bump...
Oh, and to contribute - something found while looking for something else.
My fathers 36 roadster. His handle is Three Window on here.
Anyone know how many were built - USA?
Definite top 5 all time body style
Building this 1936 Ford Boattail on a Jag suspension, and a flathead. Much work to do. This is the original and the body is fiberglass. Originally built by Fairlane fiberglass and three exist. We obtained the molds for this, a roadster, cabriolet, convertible, and Phaeton. The boattail is our first car from these molds and is coming along daily.
