Default !936 Convertible Sedan World Wide Production Figures

I have seen several threads inquiring as to the number of 1936 Conv Sedans produced and how many slant backs vs. trunk backs.

I reviewed some Ford month by month productions figures obtained from The Benson Ford Archives and have come up with an educated guess. The key month for the changeover is April 1936. During that month there were 50 trunk back conv. sedans made domestically. I am surmising that by May all facilities were producing the trunk back either from scratch or from imported knock-downs shipped from the USA. England and its subsidiaries(British Empire) are not included in these world wide figures

If anyone has additional information, I would be happy to hear from you.

Great job, Don!

Thanks for continuing the hunt for exact totals for each model.

Here is a trunk back that had body id tag of 2497 which is the earliest trunk back model I have found that had a body id tag.

There was at least one trunk back model produced that had 4 taillights---two on trunk and two on fenders as shown in an archived picture that I can't seem to find at the moment. Anybody else seen the picture? If so, please share.
