Here's mine. Mechanically restored 3 years ago. Body will stay as is with 80 years of storys etched, welded and banged into it. My view is that its like a younger fellow coming home from the war, been given dad's old car and its used a tad roughly.

I understand its got some incorrect fenders and perhaps front clip but Im loving her with all the faults.

Your car may actually be a 1936 model. The "X" on the side of the cowl is a 1936 feature.

Mike, I don't quite agree with you on that....the "X" on the side of the cowl is also a feature of most late '35's.and all '36's. Two of my original late production '35's have those X's on the sides of the cowl.

Where the hood bumpers are on the side of a cowl is a sure fire way to tell a 35 from a 36

As panhead pete said, "There is so much to learn".
You can't argue with those original paint cars. I did not know that those "Xs" started in late 1935.
Thanks,
MIKE

Mike, there is still a lot for all of us to learn about these early Ford V-8's. Here are pics of the two original late model year production '35 tudor sedans that I have. One is a standard and one is a deluxe.

My cabriolet again, this time with top down. Picture taken a few nights ago as we watched the sun go down over the sea.
Great top down driving but it shows up my scabby interior, saving up for that, hopefully next year.

Panhead Pete - what makes you say your car body is a 35?

Here is my 35 Tudor Deluxe Touring, now back on the road, thanks to all the Ford Barn help over the last couple of years. Runs unbelieveably well, and now I can get back on my 35 Convertible Sedan restoration.

If you could post pictures showing the full view of the cowl side panel, and the feature at the top of the cowl that keeps the hood propped in the open position, we could better determine if body is '35 or '36. But as you say, a mix of '35 and '36 parts should not stress anyone out. The end result is still a great looking car.

Would the fact that this car has a 36 grill and front fenders not confirm its year as 36?

My 35 is finally registered, licensed, and on the road, after several decades hidden in garage.

I bought a wonderful collection of negatives out of a basement in our town. In fact it was in the basement of the Studio in the photo below. Here's an interesting one.


Obviously of the pretty lady on the horse, but the '35 sedan interested me. It has artillery wheels of some sort. Anyone recognize them? Here's a close up of the wheels. Envelope the negs were in says "Rodeo, 1946"

They look like General Jumbo wheels to me.
