  2. That's an ugly car. Not the sheet metal, but the stance is pretty awful.

    Bout the only things I'd do to that one is drop the nose about 12”s, move the hood scoop back, and put a set of magnesium torq's on her. Kool ride all n all!

    I have a picture of this car when it was in the Clutch Artist's car show in Buffalo, NY. I'll try to find and post it.
    The stance is how the gassers were in the sixties before the tracks were soaked with adhesive and the tires weren't like todays.

    Edit---Found the picture!!

    This 36 is absolutely COOL in my book. But then again.....I restored (and still own) another one that was campaigned by the Proval Brothers on the East coast. Mine had the same stance for a number of years but I opted to drop it for a safer ride with the newer tire compounds. I still run the mechanical Hilborn, what an INSTANT rush. 001 (4).JPG 008.JPG

    I tried to sell it recently but the GASSER crowd is getting as old as me and saving their money for the nursing home. Jabone

  12. Would like to bring this back up.
    Jack’s daughter just contacted me on Facebook about my 39 deluxe coupe. She asked what year mine was and thought it looked liked her dad’s 36 coupe. She said it was featured in a ‘64 Car Craft mag. So, I did a Google search ‘36 Ford the shy one 64 Car Craft’ and this article popped up. I sent her the link and asked if her dad’s name is Jack and she says ‘yes that’s it!’
    Her father is 80 now and would like to know if it’s still around. He’s hoping to be able to get it back. He reluctantly sold it many years ago to a guy in Boston, NY last name was Weber. Weber sold it to someone else but has since passed. Any info on the car or location would be great.
  13. Pics from the article.

    I don’t follow the theory behind the stance. Can someone elaborate?

    I think it shifts more weight on to the rear wheels under acceleration, providing better traction on the unprepped tracks of the day.
