Default New V8 Owner, 1936 Tudor Touring Deluxe

Hi all,

I recently purchased my first pre-war Ford V8. I purchased this vehicle from and elderly gentleman several weeks ago. The car was taken out of storage two years ago. Fuel line (cleaned), gas tank, Stromberg carb, and fuel pump replaced (carb rebuilt) upon take out of storage. This car sat in storage from 1983 to 2018. The previous owner only drove the car twice between 2018-2020, health issues lead to his sale of the car.

This one is special in my opinion as it is a factory original survivor with factory original black enamel paint, factory original deluxe interior, as well as all factory accessories original to the car still present when ordered new from the dealership back in 1936. The car has been very well preserved in it's original state. I figure this car's condition can be attributed to the heated storage up on blocks it sat on during the last 30+ years. Very little rust on the car underside. Interior very well preserved with original mohair still intact. Around 65,000 original miles. I plan to keep all cosmetics factory and original to the car, I want to overhaul the mechanical side to make the car roadworthy and drivable on long distance trips if ever desired. Mechanical servicing/restoration will not deviate from factory original specifications. I am a stickler for originality, and want to keep things as they were as much as possible when able. If things have to be replaced I want to use factory correct reproduction parts. I will not modify or cut corners on mechanical servicing. Still very new to the early V8's and 1930s cars altogether. This will be a fun and exciting new learning experience and journey. I am looking forward to sharing my work as well as discussion regarding these early Ford V8 cars. I will have many questions! Hope you enjoy the pic's. Comments welcome.

Included is a picture of the previous owner and myself, I am wearing the turquoise shirt on the right. If it matters I am 31, I have seen little to no young person activity in pre-war cars. Sad, would like to see the many pre-war cars in general continue to be taken care of as time marches on. Like many of you I feel it is very important to preserve, restore, and care for these old cars as time continues on.

Jon

That’s a beautiful car! Paint looks like it was just put on! If the rest of the car is in that good of shape it shouldn’t take much to get it roadworthy. Congratulations on being it’s next caretaker! And Kudos for wanting to preserve it as original!

I just saw the interior photos, looks like it is in fantastic shape. Also looks like it had a hot air heater installed at one time.

Very nice car there young man!
I see you did in fact join the Early Ford V8 Club. Wise choice

I'm willing to bet you'll get a lot of enjoyment out of the club's '35 - '36 restoration manual.
Don Rogers is the clubs guru for all things '35 - '36. A great fellow you should someday meet or at the very least correspond with.

Welcome, a great looking example to get into to Early Ford V8's. A trip to the Early Ford V-8 Foundation in Auburn, IN should be on your to-do list to check out the collection of all the 1936 model Fords on display.

Welcome Mate. Well I’m a 36 guy owning 4 of them the one in my avatar with Mr Edsel Ford I have owned since I was 17 some 48 years ago. Other than a home paint job & a little needed rechroming it to is original. I totally love you stunning car. With your mechanical make over I strongly recommend a set of Flathead Teds Brake floaters. The mechanical brakes can be made to lock up wheels at any speed. There is a lot of great help on here. Feel free to ask. Thanks for sharing & enjoy.
Cheers

Love it! When I was young, a bloke next had a 36 trunk 4 door in grey..a very handsome car even in 4 door. I drooled over that car and it was partly his influence that got me into flat heads. Yes I have a soft spot for all 36s'. Welcome aboard.

Welcome Jon. Always glad to see young people get into the hobby. I see you also posted on the Early Ford V-8 Club website. You'll find both sites will be a great help to you. Never be afraid to ask questions as there is no such thing as a dumb question. Being new to the hobby of old Ford V-8s you'll have plenty of questions. Also if you ever get to Auburn, Indiana you'll find the finest collection of '36 Fords at the Early Ford V-8 Foundation Museum.

CONGRADULATIONS! What a beauty. I brought out of retirement Miss Ida a 1936 Ford 4 door sedan, one family owned, been sitting since the 80's. found out why it had been sitting-cracked block-ran fine until it got really hot then blew all the water out. We had to hunt another engine but rebuilt it with parts original to Miss Ida. It was written up in the V8 times magazine. Ask us old guys any question you want, we will try to help you. tried to up load pictures but they would not let me

Ketron, welcome to the Fordbarn! That is a very nice '36 Ford Deluxe Tudor Touring Sedan! It does my heart good to see someone your age come along and rescue this nice Early Ford V-8. There are plenty of us here just waiting to help you out on this one.

What a great car! It reminds me of a '36 tudor I was able to purchase in 1960. It was about in the same shape as yours (39,000 miles) and was fully equipped (including a radio and clock mirror). The only differences are that mine was a "flatback" and a different color. I was amazed to find such a nice original car when it was 24 years old; to be able to find one this nice after 84 years is simply unbelievable.

I let mine go and will forever regret it. Hold on to this one and it will give you a lifetime of pleasure.

Thanks. I recently became a registered member of the Ford V-8 Club. Its great to find another enthusiast my age. We should network, would like to see your car and discuss early Fords. By the way, would you happen to be selling early ford parts on eBay, your user name and location look familiar. I recently purchased several 1936 parts from you if so.

RalphM,

Thanks for the comments. The paint is the original paint. The green pin stripe was faded and touched up 2 years ago upon removal from storage. I too feel the cars should take little work to get roadworthy again. Upon delivery to my house, I did take the car around the block on two occasions to see where I was mechanically. Car needs work before it hits the road in a safe and reliable way. Plenty of questions and updates to come!

Thank you. I purchased the book you mentioned last week and have been reading daily. I am about half way thru the book. Great information regarding 1935/1936 year Ford. Looking forward to learning more.

Mike,

Thank you for your comments. The club's 35-36 reading has been coming along well. Learning more every day with this great book. I would like to speak to Don once I get a better grasp on this car. Would be very neat to have a discussion with him regarding the 1936 year. I hope to attend several of the clubs meets once the virus subsides.

Zeke3,

Thank you. A trip to the Early Ford V-8 Foundation in Auburn IN is indeed on my list of things to do. I want to take the trip in this car to that museum, would be a great tribute to the car. I have heard the collection of 1936 Fords there are fabulous.

KiWinUS, I am not a farmer, although I did purchase this car within a farming community north of Columbus/Dayton OH. It was beautiful country, this old Ford fit in perfect within that little community.

Thanks Mark, I appreciate the comments. Looking forward to becoming the car's caretaker for years to come.

By the way, would you happen to be selling early ford parts on eBay, your user name and location look familiar. I recently purchased several 1936 parts from you if so.

Jon, yes, Michael Driskell and his wife Jane are known as "Third Generation Automotive", and do a great job of keeping many of us in this hobby supplied with early Ford V-8 parts for our vehicles, and they are top notch folks to deal with.

Thanks guy's for the responses. I have been speaking to Michael about my car quite a bit lately. He has been a great help and a new found friend within this hobby.

Looking forward to servicing more on the car soon!
