Default 1936 Trunkback Convertible Sedan

City: York
State: PA
Price: $59,500

This 1936 Convertible Sedan is the Trunk Back model which was a Spring introduction in April 1936. It was purchased by the present owner in the early 1950s and used as his regular, back and forth to work, driver for many years. In the mid 1960s he parked the car and shortly after started an “owner” restoration. The project went forward with many set backs over the next couple of decades, he said that “life got in the way”. He eventually contacted the restoration shop that completely started over and did the full ground up restoration. It has been refinished in the original Spring color of Light Fast Maroon. The interior is in brown genuine leather. Restoration was completed 2005 to show-winning condition by an avid enthusiast and long time member of the Early Ford V8 Club. It has achieved a 1st Junior Award at the AACA Fall Meet in Hershey, PA and was shown several times at smaller local meets, where it always drew a lot of attention. It is an outstanding example of a rare, low production, open car. The bodywork is exceptionally straight. The paint work is completed with the addition of the original pattern gold stripe. All of the chrome was restored to show standards.
All restoration work was done to achieve authenticity to the original standards. The dash and window moldings have been properly wood grained. All of the gauges are original and in perfect working condition. The original odometer shows 97925 miles. The tan canvas top is new and in outstanding condition. It has the “Three Position” top which can be set in the fully closed position, the fully open position, and the rarely used half way down position, which gives the car the appearance of an open front Town Car.
The engine is a correct 1936 flathead V8 with cast iron heads and aluminum intake. Fully rebuilt during the restoration, it starts quickly and smooth and quiet with the typical sounds of flathead Fords. All the wiring is correct cloth-covered stock. It has the original three-speed manual transmission with synchromesh on second and third gears. Despite Henry's insistence on mechanical brakes, this Convertible Sedan performs and stops in a manner that gives the driver complete confidence. The chassis is completely, although it does show some signs of use that could be wiped away with a rag on a Saturday afternoon. The original wheels are equipped with the standard hub caps and proper 16-inch Firestone wide white wall tires.
The owner is now in his mid 1980s and, due to health issues, asked me to handle the sale for him. Since I did the restoration work, I am able to show the car at his location, answer any questions about the car and the work that was done. I have known the owner for nearly 50 years and I am completely familiar with the overall restoration project. Located in York, PA. Asking $59.500 SERIOUS OFFERS WELCOME; Contact DON: dewx2pa@comcast.net
