Question 36 model 68 body panel drawing?

Looking for some sort of pictures or drawing showing front sheet metal on a 1936 ford model 68, tried thru most vendors sites and most just show what they have to sell, even looked in my copy of the green bible to no avail, specifically looking for grill & horn panel area, someone recently told me they made two different horn panels for a 36 model 68 car...? never ever heard of that?? Some sort of ford drawing would be most helpful...

There were two different inner filler panels (bridging between the front fender bracket and the front fender/horn panel, but not two different outer panels with the horn grilles in them. The difference in filler panel stampings does not effect either the fit of the front fender, grille, or the horn panels. Both filler panels are interchangeable.


Instead of looking in a publication dated twelve years after 1936 (the green book), you could always seek a copy of the 1936 chassis parts catalogue which has the illustration that you seek. Used copies of originals show up regularly on ebay and Amazon.

Thanks for your quick reply, would this be the correct book? but I think you already answered my question above...thanks again.

Thanks but were specifically looking a drawing for the metal horn grill panels that go on each side of the grill and fenders, like this pic...
Someone told me ford made 2 variants but I have only ever seen one for a 1936?

Sorry, I threw that one up thinking I had a second one to back it up with and I don't.

I think I have the second variation on my '36. I don't have a good picture or a drawing for you but it has a stamped hole close to the top of the panel pictured above. I have not come across another '36 with the same filler panels yet. The hole is not being utilized on my sedan delivery, so I'm not sure what Ford used it for. I saw a picture once that showed a sedan with the large external horns mounted between the headlights and the horn grills. I think the wiring used the extra stamped hole in the filler panel. My car was a delivery vehicle for a grocery store in Ill. originally. I will take a picture and load it up later today.

Here is one pic. I am not sure that these are factory holes, they were there in 2009 when this car was redone last time. I will try to send another pic. Only one would load properly for me.

I see the pic, it has a hole, but other than the hole all else is the same, Yeah?
