I would almost be tempted
here is 2 more !!!!!
This car is absolutely killer, WEEMARK... what a score!
But I have to ask... is the 'THX' license plate just a coincidence?
Heres mine. Purchased as a rescue project and been on the road since 2000. My wife and daughter picked out the color, got to keep the girls on board you know.
Here is one more of mine at the park in Escondido
Here is mine. I've had it since 1973. Someday I may even finish it.
Done 100% at home.
There are some seriously nice 35/6 on here.My mate just sold his 36/5winda to a guy from Germany a few weeks ago..a real nice car and a real loss locally.My own 36 is getting seen to. steadily, and will get juice brakes, 24 studder and a severe lowering, the spare wheel is gone....undecided whether to paint it or not....if I opt for paint, I know it won`t stop there and the roof will come down
Anyhow, mines the tan Petes was the blue
I love this thread! 1936 Fords are so adorable.
I have my 36 since August and raced it in Finsterwalde/Germany
I hope to find the right Fenton Headers and I´ll lower my baby a couple of inches
I could watch 36 Ford Coupes all day long
My PAIN-IN-THE-A**, I mean pride and joy in the works 36...Next change is to steel wheels as soon as I can afford the tires, and fixing the exhaust leak so I can drive it around the block, and a wiper motor so that I can get it inspected and registered so I can legally drive it around the block and so on and so on until it pisses me off once to often and I find something else.
i forgot to show the pics when i bought it.
Here is my buddy Kevin's sweet '35.
This is Dave Simard's '36 roadster with carson top
This is Dave Jackson, he's own this killer '36 for 50+ years.
Okay, I finally have some pictures to share of our 35 coupe...
Things I've been thinkin' about doin' to it:
- wheel change
- change the gages, steering wheel and seats
- change the valve covers and air filter (don't ask)
- put the bumpers back on
- bag the rear
- maybe skirts
- maybe change the mani to a 3x2 with three 94's
- paint... ?? who knows?!! Probably never
Here's one I saw at Primer Nats I really like... anyone know anything about it??
one of my shots of the Rick Dore built '36 when my dad owned it. ive posted it before but it is such a beautiful car visually that i love looking at it. Im also an art deco freak so these cars tickle my balls
NRchopshop: We want more!
What hupcaps are these?
Mine, on the road again after 20 plus years...
Just LOVE this thread !
Now let's see more custom '35 & '36s, great car to start with !
My ALL TIME FAVOURITE HAS TO BE THE JACK CALORI COUPE !
However the Donn Lowe built one is amazing too.
Kustoms are so Kool !
'51 Chrysler Saratoga, I believe.
Unfortunatly due to a hard drive crash last year, I lost every photo of the car I shot except for the one previously posted and these other two files i have. Like the dumbass that I am, I did not have these backed up and the only thing left of the original files are these two low quality jpegs with obnoxious watermarks. i cant even get prints out of these two
Result of an quick search: some other 1951 Chryslers have them too.
I believe that. The reference I consulted (Monstrous American Car Spotter's Guide) showed a bunch of different '51 Chrysler models, but the only one with those caps was identified as a Saratoga.
Got the Flathead fired today. All I need to do now is get a driveshaft and hook up the rest of the transmission and then I could drive it.
35 flathead with a T5 and airbags. Goal is to have it driveable by the NSRA show in Oklahoma City.
When this thread first started i was amazed at all the awesome photos of these 35's and 36's and only wished to own a 5W someday.
All it took was my prego wife to ask me to go to the store for a late night ice-cream craving, pick up an old car auto trader, made a phone call the next morning, then drove home with this 2 days later-
I was just going to post a pic of my roadster on the road to the LA Roadster show last year, but I guess I'm not quite smart enough. I can e-mail it if somebody would like to post it. Dave
I rest my case. You don't have to be smart to drive a 36 roadster to the LA Roadster Show.
I know a guy who can post it for you.
Here's my 35 tudor. Its a little rough around the edges.
This is what i was looking at before the 3W, Lee from the Swanks owns this one... it's pretty sweet and looks even better with the hood on!
