My pick is the '34 roadster. I had one back in the 50's and have one today. Besides, 1934 was the year I was born and today is my 85th birthday. The car has aged a lot better than I have.

Let the market decide.....I would say the '32 followed by the '33 & '34. These are the most reproduced designs.

I like the "What's your favorite ice cream?" analogy posted above. Everybody's taste is different, and naturally we tend to buy our personal favorites.

A few years ago I was talking to a guy at a local car show who had just acquired a rough '37 tudor slant-back. I told him he has a lot of work ahead but I think he will be doing it on the right car, that body style is one of my favorites. Then last year I was going to the Mecum auction in Chicago, not to buy or sell, just to enjoy a day out as a spectator with hundreds of old cars to check-out. Mecum's pre-auction flyer arrived in the mail, showing an estate sale with a bunch of streetrods to be sold at no reserve. Most of them had the typical SBC engine, but included in the bunch was a '37 tudor slant-back with a flathead engine. That car is now in my garage!

We each tend to go after our personal favorites.

Any 1934 Ford passenger car. Even the 34 four door sedan is classy. Mind you the 34 Aussie utes open and closed are nice. Edsel Ford and his designers got it right in 33 & 34. Regards, Kevin.

A Ford trimotor would be pretty cool- three engines; does that count?

I'd say it is a ford product, certainly more interesting then another "what yrs are best thread". We all have yrs that mean something to each of us on a personal level. But certainly the 32-36 3 window would be near top dog.... outside trucks, phaeton, and zephyrs...... ...... no right answer other then the ford ya own I guess.

I agree, but I'm a little crazy about '38 standards. LOL

For convenience sake, I added '39 and '38 Standards, with the year before. and grouped '41 - 48 together but, I was surprised that know one picked the '41. The Tri Motor had more votes? I was also surprised that only two Merc's made it ('50 & '53) and the lack of trucks.

The clear winner was '39/'40 (about even), with '33/'34 second and '32's third.

These are the results, thus far:

Fords

32 - 10

33/34 - 16

35 - 4

36 - 4

37 - 5

38 - 5

39/40 - 22

41-48 - 4

49-51 - 8

52/53 - 1

Merc - 2

Linc - 3

Trucks

32/33 - 0

35/36 - 2

37 - 2

38/39 - 0

40/41 - 1

45-47 - 1

48-53 - 1

Ford Tri Motor - 1

If you'll keep posting, I'll up date the results.

I'll go for '33 Coupe, '37 Slantback and '32 Cabriolet. I have two of these, who knows, maybe some day I'll have the '32 as well. I have to admit though, there aren't many in all those years that I don't like.
