Which '36 Ford Hood

I am just starting a '36 Cabriolet, and I have been given different information regarding the hood. Was told the Roadster hood was somehow different. I know you guys know what fits what so thanks in advance for the final word on this issue.

So far as I know there was only one passenger car hood for 1936. Same on closed and open cars. I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong.

There is only one hood for all 36 passenger cars including the sedan delivery.

You may have seen one with the Pines front accessory trim that made it look different but to my knowledge all '36 passenger car hoods are the same. John

Re: Which '36 Ford Hood

US Bumpers = UK Fenders

US Fenders = UK Wings (or mudguards)

US Roof = UK Hood

US Hood = UK Bonnet

US Trunk = UK Boot

US Flashlight = UK Torch

As Sir Winston Churchill once said, "Two great countries separated by a commom language."

Same in New Zealand except US Roof is not hood, I think its just the top for convertibles or roof for a turret. NEVER WINGS for fenders, usualy mudguards or just guards. But WINGS?? the Poms (limeys) don't know the diference between a plane and an automobile!

The US usage you mention is heard here though. Perhaps it is because we had a deep affinity with US vehicles in the pre 50's years of mortoring. Post WW2 the government of the day put tarrifs on US sourced cars to force the car assembly plants to build "British"( mother England and all that cockamaney).Possibly this was to support them in their post war export drive. In those old days when the roads were crap ( some still are although not many are metal, ie shingle anymore ), US cars held together better than any vehicle sourced from any other country. Today its not US sourced, British or Europeon makes that ply our roads ( although they are here) its prediminantly JAPPAS!
