One more reason to never sell your classic Ford at a no reserve auction!

Found it. $22K for a 35 Ford coupe at Scottsdale.
Looks to be a nice car from the photos. Good deal for someone.

Or, could it be that the value of these "old timers" is dropping?
Selling a car like that at BJ Auction is a mistake unless you just want to get rid of it.

A friend of mine who knows cars bought an original, complete 1936 Ford 3W Coupe in very good condition with Mitchell OD and hydraulic brakes for 22K about 5 years ago from the midwest area of the USA. I guess good buys are still out there.

There were two 36 3 windows that sold for around 70K. They had updated drivetrains. Unfortunately our style of car is not selling that well.

You really need to see the cars in person. The pictures do not show the true condition. That being said the so called "restomods" seem to be more desirable than a stocker these days.

Did you notice that everywhere in the listing it refers t it as a "1936 Ford" and at the very end of the listing it says "Titled as a 1935 Ford". There may be something seriously fishy going on here that is reflected in the low value. I am not enough of an expert on these cars to determine anything definitive from the few photos posted, but it seems there is something going on here.

Yes. Hot rods are the hot ticket right now. Sadly, "stocker" prices are on the decline.

I saw that, but I think it's a typo. Its listed in the auction as a 1935 Ford.

Especially the younger crowd is more in to performance cars. Old Fords are not the hot ticket anymore unless they are "built". It's only the old guys like some of us.

Yeah, value is dropping. If I was in this for the money I would sell them all now ( or better yet turn them into resto-mods first). I WOULD NEVER DO THAT. And with the low current value, nice cars will be bought and turned into resto-mods. The people who just want to make money are making a killing by taking a nice flathead powered car and putting a sbc, turbo trans, 9" rear in it and making many thousands of dollars.

Not sure those are selling either. The circle I run with all want authentic hot rods. Flatheads, 3 speeds, etc.

The SBC cars may sell, but are getting very hard to move.

I saw two, what looked like '37 Ford hot rods that went for $30K. I know you can't build them for that, someone got a great deal! Same for that '35 Ford Coupe.

In most cases, you won't make money doing this either because it costs too much to build. Nice original muscle cars are bring bigger dollars like Mopars, Cobras, Corvettes and Mustang big block cars. Allot of these hot rodders are losing money bigtime by the time they pay commissions at auction. Been there, done that.

Well, even though it appears to be a DEAL, I wouldn't have touched it. It's listed as a '35. It sure appears to be '35, except that it's described as a '36, twice. It says "TITLED AS A 1935 FORD". But it has an early '36 serial number. That could be a paperwork nightmare, not only with the local DMV, but with the insurance company when it comes time to file a claim. That's why it went for cheap. PASS! DD

The car that sold for $22K at Barrett Jackson, also has a later incorrect engine. Might have a little to do with the low price. Looks like possibly a 59A engine from the 40's ?

It is a 24-stud, possibly 59A-type, but likely a '39 221-incher out of a truck. The interesting thing in this picture is the TAG that has been pop-riveted to the firewall on the far left of picture. I'm betting that that may have something to do with NON-ORIGINAL serial number, or possibly some state's re-assigned serial number program. Definitely some ID discrepancies on that baby. DD

If this came up for sale around me for $20K, it would be in my garage. Paperwork can be sorted out on an old car.

Think about how many model A's are running around that don't have anywhere near the correct paperwork.
