    1936 Stainless Steel Ford Coupe

    This is the 1936 Ford Coupe built for and owned by Allegheny Ludlum
    Steel. It was attending our open house and then was featured in a
    local parade with over 100 of our salaried, hourly and retired employees
    walking alongside. This is 1 of only 4 in existence and is the only one
    currently in running & in roadworthy condition. The car is in exceptional
    condition, with the interior and even the frame looking great.
    All 4 cars each had over 200,000 miles on them before they removed them
    from service. These cars were built for Allegheny as promotional and marketing
    projects. The top salesmen each year were given the honor of being able to drive
    them for one year. The v-8 engine (max 85 hp) ran like a sewing machine and was
    surprisingly smooth and quite. I thought this was a much better looking automobile than
    the Ford Thunderbird that visited us last year.
    FYI, the car was insured (we were told) for the trip to Louisville via covered trailer for
    1.5 million dollars. We were also told that the dies were ruined by stamping the
    stainless car parts, making these the last of these cars ever produced.
    More information of the history on these automobiles can be found at
    Allegheny Ludlum's website
