Default Detroit guys,... I Need Pictures of my Custom 36 Coupe, 1st. Autorama car.

Hey Guy's,

I know this is a Restoration sight,.. But,...........

I am trying to gather any other pictures of this 1936 Ford coupe custom that I can. It was built by Frank Taubitz of Dearborn and won 3rd place at the first Detroit Autorama, It first had a flatty followed by a 303 Olds in 53, a guy named Doug Stetterhome (sp?) then bought it. had it for a while and he sold it to a guy named Harry Vogal in 56. the story falls apart there as Harry died in the stands at a race track in 1957 (so I am told) .
It's a 1936 Ford 5/W coupe, Chopped, quarter windows filled, filled trunk lid, rounded door corners, solid hood sides, Frenched fenders to 1940 Buick rockers, front fender seams filled, cowl vent filled, bull nose, shaved, 49 Ply. bumpers., appeltons. This car was painted Olds Green with a green and white tuck & roll interior, single bar flipper caps. do you have any other info or pictures ?, Any help would be greatly appreciated.





This is how it is today...

Interesting looking coupe. Are you plans to rebuild it as it was, or would you make any changes? Love to see progress shots either way. I'd love a pair of Plymouth bumpers for mine, they look great.

If I can ever get back on it, I will try to do a faithful restoration to it's 1953 configuration.

Thanks Charlie,... This car was the very first real Hot Rod / Custom I even seen when I was a kid,... So when I found it again in 1976 ( In pretty bad condition) I knew I had to have it,... But as life changes I ended up selling it and buying it back a few times,... I would like to finish it some day.
