First flathead in 40+ years
 

1 Attachment(s)
I just bought my first flathead,(first V8 anyway) that I've had since 1977.always liked them,but I always stuck with the Model A's for play cars.It was actually in a garage about 200 feet from my dads bedroom window.Place was sold and it just got put into this tent.The car was redone by the owners dad in the 70's,the son inherited it and never drove it.The owner sees me driving the A's every day,and felt I'd ought to own this too.I'm curious what model this 35 three window coupe is called.

Great find, Keith. Nice to see another New Hampshire person who has both an A and a EV8. Love 'em both.

While these mid 30's Fords are my favorite V8 cars,because of their worth I never expected to own one.I had somebody here looking at some A stuff I was selling,and he asked about my roadster.I put a price on it,and he just said yes.The neighbor offered me the 35 for a whole lot less than I expected,so I own it now.I know some people prefer the 3 window,and some the 5,like I do,but I expect I will get used to the 3 window.

A very desirable car; 3 windows are real popular. Looks to be a real good one too...you are indeed very fortunate. Cherish it.

That's quite the score; congrats!

The only real downside to the 3w are the rear blind spots.
That can be remedied, to a degree, with TWO good mirrors.

Keith, that model is called "The Best One".
