Hey Dan, you got that in one. I know it's more than one, but, it's all the wired wheel v8's for me.

Things change. When I was a kid, a '40 Deluxe coupe was the cat's ass; now, I much prefer a '39 Deluxe (or maybe even a '40 Standard).

I have a '51 club coupe. I know that Ford enthusiasts like the "single spinners", but the general public really likes the '51; I think it has to do with the chrome on the windsplits (which I used to hate) and the more complicated grille. It has a real "fifties" vibe that the "hoi-polloi" can connect to.

That's the same with me. When I was a kid, I loved the '40 Deluxe coupe. Now I much prefer a '39 Deluxe coupe or a '40 Standard coupe. It's all about the grill for me.

When you are driving down a road and a 34 Ford of any body style is coming toward you, you get to view the most beautiful front end that has ever been designed!!!!!!!!! I suppose we are all a bit kennel blind. I think there is something beautiful in every old Ford.

35 three window, and 47-48 coupes(I know, but there’s just something about them I like!)

Oh, and if Lincoln’s are included, hard to beat the looks of the 38-39 Zepher coupes.

Man, what a tough question. I'd probably say 32 3 window for one, 40 coupe of course and I have always adored 52 to 54 Ford convs especially the 53 pace cars. There are so many great ones,it is very hard to make a choice !

Yes, they are, that's why I said Ford Products. I also like the '39 - '41 Lincoln Coupes and Continental's as well as the '41 Fords. I'd even try to seek in the '57 Continental

Maybe I miss it but, I haven't seen ANY Merc's listed. My very first car was a '48 Mercury Coupe, bored 3/16 with '39 trans, in 1959.

It's easier to say what I don't like. Well, like less...there's not many cars I really don't like.

For passenger cars (different preferences for trucks), it's 35, 38 Deluxe/39 standard, and post-48. The 35 and 38/39 front ends just aren't that appealing to me. I'm not so much into shoeboxes because I'm old enough to remember when they were still daily drivers. Back then, the prewar and 46-48 cars were the ones I thought were cool.

I do prefer convertibles and "one-seaters" (cabriolets, roadsters, and coupes) to sedans. I'm also not into Mercs and Lincolns so I don't have strong preferences there.

I'll go with my cars: 32 5 window. 36 roadster and 39 DeLuxe coupe. If I had to choose one more, it would be a 33 3 window.

My first flathead ford was a 38 tonner pu. Daily drove it for 11 years. It did me well, really well, but never too keen on the horse collar grille. I'm in with whoever wrote about anything from'35. And some people call me the jailbar (42-47)pickup king, but a '35 I would be buried in.
