    So I finally bit the bullet and traded my child and first love, my 1959 Chevy Fleetside Kustom. In turn I acquired this 1936 ford 5 window coupe. It is a great car, very solid and looks great. To new beginnings, CHEERS.

    Was told that it is an original Texas car. Lady bought it new and had it till the early 70's. It has traded hands a few times since. Not much else I know about the history on the car, but I'm sure I will get more info as time goes on. No plans for it immediately, but ultimately I would like to paint it back to it's original washington blue and do a simple, clean interior. No major body mods. Just make sure all is good, reliable and just drive it and enjoy it.

    Good move ! Love those '36's.

    I traded a '55 Buick 2-door Special all done for my '36 coupe that needed restoration. I hated to lose the Buick, but I wouldn't trade back for anything !
     
  10. Lucky you!! Great looking car to start with.

    Saw the 36 at LSR last year..loved it...
    Loved it so much that I sold my Chevy and bought a 36 Five window the next weekend..
    Hard to tell by the picture in my avatar, but mine is Washington blue too!
