    This thread WORKS for me! I've got website titled, "36 fords Rule!." (www.36fords.com, if anyone interested). This is my 36 conv sedan that is stone stock. Had it five yrs and love it.. want one as street rod but can't bring myself to change this one because it works so well in my little town. My chopped 3W follows but don't have recent pic of whole car. Please settle for pic from SRB note about the front end mods.

    Wanted to bring this thread back from the depths. Maybe there are some more we can add to it...

    I have hoped to have my own 35-36 to post on here some day and finally bought one this weekend. Here's my 35 5w basket case.

  11. Here's my updated version of my old post, I'm losing the red wheels for black or maroon and still plan on the lowering. All org. otherwise. [​IMG]

    well ive lowered my roadster now, makes quite a difference visually i think, also changed the tyres slightly, 5.50s on the front, 6.50s on the rear. I think if you hadnt seen it before or didnt know it sat quite high then you would never realise its been lowered that little bit.

    here is before and after shots.

    here is some pics of my friends '35 cabriolet being done over here - he only lives 50 miles away, body is in primer, fenders are nearly there though so will be in primer soon, car has a french flathead, thickstun PM7 manifold, twin 97s, fentons. the car will be painted maroon - its going to be one really nice car when its done too.

    Can anyone send me pics of the inside of a cabriolet showing the roof irons at the very rear of the body - where the rear leg mounts to the body behind the seat?

  14. Weemark, What's the story on the lowering, or did the tires handle it? Looks good. Mike

    mike i put mono leafs front and back and that was it, the rear tyres are only a tiny bit bigger being 6.50s as opposed to the 6.00s which were on it. i find the mono leafs a little harder but am going to change the shocks as i dont think the std shocks are working very well.

    Great. Looks like it should have been built that way by Ford.

    Here is my 36 that I picked up a few months ago. I took it down to a fried at Magnaflow to get the exhaust done but I provided the Smittys.

    50fraud i think it makes the car look much nicer, when i first got it i thought it felt very agricultural becuase of how it sat, the car felt really big too - maybe thats because im only a little fella??? but it feels much bigger than the coupe.

    adventurer thats a fine lookin project there would be good to see that progress onto the finished article. what are your plans for it?

    rusty thats a nice lookin 3 window as well..

    updated pics of my shed...the eagle eyed will see the hinges are gone.. wasnt an easy desision to make but since I was missing 2 lower hinges due to rust and most of the A posts, the easy ( if I can call it that) option was to re hinge it with hidden hinges..work fine a s well... However its back on ice ( again) while I help a buddy out with his cabrio... being built in fine old trad style..

    (Here is my 36 that I picked up a few months ago. I took it down to a fried at Magnaflow to get the exhaust done but I provided the Smittys.) That looks good. Are you still running the flathead? I can't remember from your thread when you picked it up. Come to the Village Idiots on Tues. in Yorba Linda. You'll have a good time, a laid back show.
