Here is our 36 5W coupe. Started as a basket case and 30 years to complete.

Note flames on hood are magnetic and can easily be removed.

Here's mine just before I started to tear it down. I got it about 23 years ago as an incomplete pile of parts, got it on the road a few years later with wrong everything, and am now in the process of putting it back to as-original condition.



Still a long way off.

Here's my first 1936 convertible sedan that got me started trying to track the rest of them down to determine just how many slantback and how many trunk models were built.

I don't recall seeing the chrome bars you have at the top of the grille and hood sides. Were they factory or some aftermarket dress up kit? Interesting look. Great looking car too.
