Default New to me 1936 5 window coupe

Long time lurker first time posting, so the story starts off like this. I have to give my girlfriend all credit for the find. she was working and came across a picture of the 36 5 window and older gentleman standing next to it. she struck up conversation and come to find out it was the ladies father and his car. she went on to tell here how I was building a 1930 model a and always loved seeing old cars around. lady then tells her that her fathers car will be for sale soon and my girlfriend gives her our info to contact us when it is. couple weeks goes by and find out that one of the guys I work with is going over a older car and getting it road ready so I ask about it and wouldn't you know its the same 36. so while he's working on it I go over and check it out and see what's going on. he tells me he will put in a good word for me. After awhile I get contacted about the car. I had one or two other buyers in front of me to purchase it. So after months of waiting and phone call after phone call the title was transferred and I have it home safe in the garage. it will need some love to get it completely road ready, but now on to what yall really want to see PICTURES!!!!!!!

WOW! Nice car. I'd drive the hell out of it.

Please keep posting back with us on your adventures in this coupe.

Also, congrats on your girlfriends keen eye for old Fords. She's a keeper I'd say. My wife would have done the opposite. She'd have found a buyer for my cars.

A lovely car in a very nice colour. She's a beaut!

Hydraulic brakes and a later rear.

You won't stumble across them like that very often. Take care of it.

Nice shop too!

Mart.

Hey, good for you! Maybe you will get lucky and that 21 stud might be an LB (insert main bearing) block. Please move those front hydraulic hard lines up where they can't get snagged on something. Look at where a 39 or 40 Ford runs them.
Happy for your great luck.

Nice find. I second Mike's suggestion about moving those brake lines. They don't belong under the frame.

Great score, my Dads car when he got home from WWII was a '36 rumble seat coupe, I have a few b&w photos of it, I always wanted one but couldn't find a decent one I could afford.

For you two "newbies" to the V-8 and '36 world you might want to purchase the Early Ford V-8 Club's 1935-36 Ford book. Lots of great information on your cars. You might want to also join the Early Ford V-8 Club so you can receive the bi-monthly magazine, The V-8 Times. Go to ;www.earlyfordv8.org.

Nicely played.

Mechman 22 what's this?

Careful with those two post frame engaging lifts. In my experience these cars like lifting from their front axle or rear radius rods before they meet the axle bells. The frame wasn't really made to support the weight of the car like you'd expect. It's made to be very flexible.

Aha, okay. The starter button was originally on the floor between the brake and clutch pedals. Look for a hole down about here...

BTW Sweet addition to the fleet. Very sweet!

No need to censor your license plate mate.

It is virtually impossible for anybody to do anything with it.

LEO's discussed this at length on the Cadillac forum on FB.

Good luck with the car.

It is really nice.

I know why! Those three pans get in the way of so much maintenance on dizzy and steering column and it's wires for lights and horns, among others. Still, I put them on my cars to help cooling, which I'm convinced they do.

Same thing happens with the battery cover, they get chucked too.

Engine runs good it starts right up. I have a video my bud sent me when he got it running for the original owners. I have it parked in girlfriends garage till I can make room in mine and park it next to the 30 Tudor. I'll try to get a video tomorrow of it starting up and running

Great 36 delux cp! Looks original other than the hyd brakes and starter button. From what I can see it's in great shape. Check the gas tank for bad gas smell because if gas has gone bad in it and even been drained, it would still need to be acid cleaned.

thanks, the buddy I work with that was getting it road worthy for the original owners I believe did that. he replaced all the brake likes and parts, cleaned brake master cylinder. and got the engine running and rebuild the distributor and some other stuff. it runs and drives just needs some tlc before I want to put it on the road. I drove it home under 5miles

36- had stomp floor starters. If you have some upgrades to the early forties I wouldn't worry. Driving it for at least a yr under its current condition is a nice experience.

That's the plan, need to get new tires and tubes as they are all dry rotted, has couple leaks that need attention, wiring as most of it is exposed. Check brake drums as my bud that's was working on it for the original owners said they didn't have much meat on them. The paint will need attention as who ever painted it seems they didn't prep very well as it's cracking and bubbling and chipping off. I will have to move the seat back some aswell as I'm 6'4 to make it a little more comfortable but while retaining the stock look

It's amazing how small this World is actually getting. I recently received a picture from a friend here in Maryland of her son's new to him 36 Ford 5w coupe, and as things turn out, some of the pictures are identical to those posted here.
So, mechman_22.... congratulations on owning one of Henry's finest....and a very beautiful example at that,.... I must say!

Nice story as well as a beautiful example of a very nice Early Ford V-8!! It warms my heart to see some of these cars falling into the hands of young folks who will appreciate them the same way us older geezer's do.

Well got some new shoes in the old gal and got tags and insurance on and drove it around a little. Stopped at a local Vietnam vet my Friend knew that wanted to see the car as he's father had one just like it. Brought back some good times and memories for him.

What's not to like? Great story. Solid car gone to a good home, it seems.

had a great weekend, drove the car about 200 miles Saturday for a little get together with some great friends. was the first time driving the 36 anywhere. she did great. still have to tinker with it some. seems when it was at operating temp and in low gears it wanted to flutter or hesitate. had to find sweet spot in the pedal and would be ok. when cruising 55-60 had no problem at all. then Monday the daughter and I needed to take it out again so went to dairy queen for some ice cream.

Beautiful car, I've always loved the looks of '36 Ford coupes. Please re-route those front brake lines to avoid disaster. Best of luck with it.

Took the 36 out for a quick ride and to snag some pictures. Also had my parents down and of course had to take them for a ride.

mechman NICE Coupe

It's hard to beat a '35 or '36 Ford Coupe. You have landed a beauty, love the car!! It will make a nice stable mate for your Model A.

Again, congratulations THAT is cool, and neat story!!!
