For many years the Roadway Trucking Co, a very large interstate company's standard color scheme was a orangish-yellow and a purple-blue combination.

Well, now you've done it! About 6 months ago, after being an enthusiast for over 60 years, I finally figured out how to tell '35 and '36 Ford pickups apart.

Well, after this, it's gone again.

Going by the wheels 'style' would be too easy. Do you see that "chrom-ish" Ford oval on the upper hood side panel? In the MIDDLE of panel is '35. Toward the FRONT is '36. DD


1935




1936

If you put '38-39 drums on your '36 you can use '36-39 wheels and the original '36 hub caps.
When I originally put hydraulic brakes on my '36 in 1952 I used the brake system from a '41, drums and wheels. I had 16" 5 on 5.5 wheels on the car with various styles of aftermarket hub caps, including stock Ford of various years.
In 1962 I got tired of the later model wheels and '46 hubcaps, converted the car to '39 drums and 8/36 wheels with stock '36 hub caps. My '36 is a 8/36 car, so the wheels are correct for the car.

I had an original '36 dealer demo half-ton. Orig color= yellow cab,box/black fenders. Dual gauge, chrome windshield surround, dual side spares w/FoMoCo mounts & indentation on each rear fender for spare, chrome rear bumper, no-dents box.

FoMoCo instructions to dealer=the yellow attracts attention when demo'g the pickup; will bring in customers. After demo, prep and paint the yellow a Ford color.

This truck was typical '36 Ford green. I was curious because of the dual spares pic in ad in EFV8 mag in 1980?+-. Paid $12,000 had it shipped.
Read up on the options this truck had. hmmm. Etched a one-inch etch between cab& box. Sure 'nuf. Yellow under the green!
Purdy rare half-ton.




nNow incontinued semi-retirement 100mi away. Was located in Arkansas/Missouri.

That is a neat story! Thanks! I didn't realize they had dual spare tire capability. Good investment surely worth much more than what you paid today.

It would be neat to see one of these restored back to original presentation.

Don't forget, If you have 35 wire wheel on later juice brake drums you need the wheel support plates. I was told this buy a friend, went online and found 4 plates made for this for about $90. Thanks Ron

I ended up painting our 1936 Pickup black. Looks great. It might have been more interesting if I would have gone with the yellow and other colors that I had found while sanding the paint. Looks and drives like a new 1936 Ford. It has 1946 Ford hydraulic brakes.
