I really like the 36 style. However, the 40/41 cars and trucks where not only beautiful, but well balanced in design. The 40/41 Pickups were deffinately the best looking Fords ever made. But beauty is in the eye of the beholder

All the trucks are beautiful to me. My favorite cars are 32-35. And also anything with a flathead. Can't say any of them are ugly in my eyes

great looking pair there and i'm probably a little biased towards the '41 design.

I always wanted a 32, 3 window coupe. Should have bought one several years ago. I like my 33 coupe, my 35 pickup, my 39 conv., my 40 conv. now Mother getting me a 32 for being a good boy. They are like women love them all. My son Marty like my 33 and I was always going to give it to him. He died before I could give it to him. The last ride he rode with me was in the 40 Conv. I ask Marty if he wanted to drive but he was to sick to drive. I put the 33 in the Ford museum so it will never be sold. If you go to You Tube and type in 1933 Ford 5 window coupe there a story about the car as Marty car. I am sorry that I did not give it to him while he was alive. At least now its Marty's car.

My opinion has always been any 1933 - 34 vehical. I grew up with 1933
PD Plymouths (a lot of them) but always wanted a V8. Unfortunaly most if
not all especially 40-48's all landed up in our local oval race track.

There are only three straight lines on the bodies of 33 and 34's. The grille on a 34 has more definition than a 33 and stands out more. The grilles 20 degree backward slant (rake) that matches the hood louvers follows to the windshield stanchions on a 34 Roadster and Phaeton. 33's missed this with hood louvers and grille. All other 33, 34 bodies do not have the matching slant on the windshield posts. I feel this is why they have a style of perfection. E.J. Gregorie the body designer had the same opinion of all the cars he designed for Ford. Of course I could be bias.

36... more dusty, then rusty.
Gravel roads are a blast to drive, especially the corners.



Last fall and a photo filter.

Fun thread...
Like many of you - I do like them all.
Least liked was my first car - 51 Ford Club Coupe. All my friends had 55 or later cars that had a lot more power and (my opinion) better styling.
Most liked is the 1933 and 34 cars. My preference between the two is my 33 Tudor.

Lotsa reading, good thread. "Beauty in the eyes of the beholder" don't know whose quote but it's true. I'm partial to all the coupes & Tudors. Wish I had more room and more of them😀

The 33-34 Roadsters/Coupes the prettiest and the 46-47 trucks the ugliest...

You only need to look at one or two Dodges or Hudsons to realise there is no ugly Ford V8.

There may be a pretty Dodge or Hudson, but the ones I am thinking about can't hold a candle to a Ford.
