Default 1936 Ford Coupe firewall

I’m rebuilding a 3W Coupe. I clearly have a few extra holes in my car’s firewall. Heater hoses, radio mounts, and perhaps the odd other hole crudely drilled out for period attributes. Would someone be willing to post a photo of a firewall that Is known to be factory accurate? ‘Really appreciate it!

There's a great picture of a correct 1935-36 Ford firewall on page 10 of the V-8 Club's 1935-36 Ford Book.

Can't vouch for the accuracy, but here is an internet photo. If you are wanting 100% correct, like Don suggested your best bet would be a documented source.

The upper right relay looks like a horn relay, not sure what the other unit is. They are not original pieces for sure.

Nor are the holes in the firewall made to attach them.

Ron, The '36 book is well worth the cost. You will be quite pleased.

Ron, you might not know but Don was pretty much responsible for creating that book. I have two copies, one that was my Dad's. My buddy's shop features a copy that lives in the top of the toolbox and it gets pulled out quite frequently.

If you use this page to buy ($33.75 shipped), proceeds benefit my favorite non-profit.

http://fordv8foundation.org/restobooks.html

The one on the V-8 club site is $29.95 plus shipping & tax.

Jeff,


I doubt that the Foundation can sell it for $33.75 shipped to a Canadian address as the favorable U.S. media mail rates do not apply to cross-border shipments. Perhaps Ron has a friend in Montana where it can be sent for that price.

Good catch David. The Foundation says US shipments only, and I didn't see Ron was from Canada.

Thanks, everyone. I ordered the book this morning from a well-known Canadian vendor: George Moir Antique Auto Parts. He had them (and other parts I currently needed) in stock.
