Really cool, Tony. Congrats!! What's the story on this one? Was it close to you? Something you were looking for or just too good to pass up?

Congratulations on your new 1936 Ford Convertible Sedan. Seems like you can't wipe the smile off your face? I would be smiling too, if this car was in my garage.

Thanks Mike , behind the pickup is a 41 Merc Coupe ,36 5 window& Shramm air compressor.

Heard - I was looking on craigslist & seen it local , contacted seller & it turns out I knew him but did not know he had this car.Had it for 20years has "ALL" parts many NOS parts, metal finished front fenders, NOS rear fenders, new radiator, 1 hour from my house & had to own. Thanks

Mike- Al knew of this car .

really cool, looks more like a museum than a shop, good job- Cliff there's lots more to see in my "Museum"

Yes Charlie I am not sure I will know how to drive this one with the steering on the "Wrong Side"
I will keep adding pics as we move ahead .
Thanks again
Cheers
Tony

Looks good Tony. Watch out for Hamtown Al....he really likes those '36 convertible sedans. I'm thinking he's going to try to work a deal with you on that baby
