All the money in the world (albeit drug money) can't buy taste. Holy Fuck.
looks like a deformed F1 ford truck front end was grafted to it!! later
If there i any dope in it cances are it will be torn apart at the customs dept....Lt's hope not
oh that would suck!
if there was dope in it that would be bad but the feds takeing it apart would save time
I can stop laughing! I own the worlds uglyist 36 and who is Pablo. I got to do some Vodka and an eight ball to keep this going.
Well its positive its a one off rig. Very different and out of my taste range but someone had to love it to keep it this long since Escobars death.
The Accountant's Story By Roberto Escobar. These guys spent $2500/month on rubber-bands for their money. They built the prison they were housed in, along with hospitals, schools and churches. Bringing them to justice was a serious issue, then. They financed a whole country/political system.
shock733, Pablo Escobar's 1936 3 window is a brilliant name for your custom. I'd roll it just like that and claim the name along with the "how fucked up do you gotta be to build this?" catch phrase.
That is the best looking 36 3 window F-1 I have ever seen....
You should leave it as is. Tour all the high schools with it as a lesson for kids to stay off drugs! Scared straight.
Just paint it flat black, add some skulls and that grill will slide right in.
Looks like it has had a 39 cowl and firewall welded in up front since it has overhead wipers and a Vee-ed windshield. OUCH!
The hood is a 40 Deluxe.
The tops of the front fenders and parts of the grille look 51-52 Ford pickupy.
Love that dual bucket seat rumble setup!
Plans? Shapely figure from the rear. But that girl's face is UGLY!
Ol Skool Rodzzzzzzzzzzzzz called, they would like to shoot the car for a six page feature.
I hope you find a couple kilos because that will help finance the project somewhat.
I think the front end is, to put it politely...."freakish"! But I kind of like the rest of it....even (or maybe especially) the Art Deco-like molded in rear fenders! A different front end, about 3 inches off the top, a bit of lowering all around (air bags maybe?) and some 16 inch white-painted steelies with baby moons and wide-whites and a pair of fender skirts on the back and that thing could be very, very COOL!
P.S . I wonder if when Escobar owned it, he
had many parts on the car "powder-coated"
That's 100% correct.
I go to Colombia regularly, Pablo = Paul.
Escobar is about as common a last name as Turner.
This car is from Bogota, Pablo Escobar was from, lived in
and died in Medellin. I'm not saying it's not his car, but he was
more of a "back seat in a limo" kind of guy.
As far as goodies go, he never saw product, just mountains
As a side note, Escobar was not even close to being the biggest
or richest cartel, just the flashiest. The people of Medellin are
split almost 50/50 as to whether they hate or adore him. He made
that city rich, Rich, RICH! A lot of people died because
of that meteoric rise of wealth though. I have family there, and I
love the city now, but would not wanted to have been there in
the 80s or 90s.
Almost all of his cars were destroyed after he got killed,
Man, that reminds me of a Custom we'd have seen in the mid-late 60's when customizing really got out of hand.
If it's THE Escobar, this is another example of a rich gold chainer w/o taste. And of course it's painted white like his product.
The front clip is a pull off. All your work is in finding the rear tail pan and seeing if you can save the rear fenders-rolled wheel lip, etc.
Front end sorry. The rest looks impressive. Some one lost intersest or imagination. Like the man said sampling the product.
i smell burning flesh! ouch!
Put a bubble top on that baby and paint the whole thing purple with huge metal flake!!

Drug mule yup! D.E.A. to busy laughing their Ass off to search it.....
It will be interesting to see what you find when you strip it down and start in on it but a 36 three window is a 36 three window and guys have started with a lot worse.

The pièce de résistance is certainly the crooked brake pedal.
Since it has been channeled (I think) I'd consider fixing the '40 hood and putting '40 front sheetmeal on there like the one up in Washington state that shows up at Viva.
Looked at the other pictures I have and it looks like an original 36 cowl. I hope they just slapped spare glass in and didn't kill the original window opening. I think its v shape is from the bad glass install. I checked some vintage photos and I see the wipers on top of 36 coupes. I wonder whats left under that rear sheet metal extension? Was that formed to hide the rust? The front clip has to GO. It's being shipped with an original hood and grill. Now I just need the fenders.
