Default Re: 35 Three Window Coupe Proportions

The '34 3w is definitely a class act, plus I've always felt the '33 & '34 Ford's had "THE" best looking styling of all the early Ford V-8's, but when comparing '35 3w to a '36 3w, the '35 wins hands down every time, all the time, bar none....and I refuse to ask for anyone's forgiveness on how I feel about this, lol

Right on Ralph! If someone gave me a '36 3w coupe, I'd be out the next day looking for all the component parts needed to convert it to a '35

Yes, in deed if, that includes the axle in front of the grill.

LOL, I'm a more sensitive guy but, that is how I feel, other than I like 5 windows. They are easier to see out of when chopped & channeled but, really I like the looks better.

It's the suicide doors on the 33-'34's that does it for me....
