WOW is that all, you did very well. I would bet you are glad you went to the auction now... build it and enjoy it for as long as you can.

2 cylinder JD's will always be my favorite. Learned basically all I know from working on them with my dad!

Good eye! Yep it has a 35 on the drivers side, that was pointed out a couple times. Luckily I have a 36 one to swap out!

Ha, I think I will be hanging on to this one for quite awhile. I don't think I'd be able to replace it...

Thanks again everyone for the kind words!

Hi Everyone. FordMike, very cool story and car! After admiring your car, I picked up the EFV-8 Club's '35/36 book. Says they built 14,068 model 68-760's, or Cabriolets, for 1936. Compare to 159,826 Fordor Touring Sedan's, 68-730's.

Your car has curved 1936 outside door handles. The books says in Jan. '36 there was a change from the straight handles.

It also looks like between the first shot (at the auction) and last shot (in your garage) the passenger side door handle has gone missing?
