1936 Ford Standard 5-window Coupe

A very attractive 1936 Ford Standard 5-window coupe that was professionally restored by the long-term previous owner. Fitted with the stock flathead V-8 and original 3-speed transmission, this very nice example has mohair seats, wood grain dashboard and window moldings. For better reliability and smoother operation, it has been retrofitted with an electronic ignition. Painted in the original gray livery with a darker gray pinstripe, this is a fantastic car for shows and cruise-ins.  The seller states:  “I bought this car from a cowboy in Ogden, Utah – my home town.  He had the car for quite a while and had it professionally restored.  It has a stock Ford flathead V8 in it, 3 speed transmission, wood grained dashboard and widow moldings.  The seats are mohair.  This car is a good runner.  I did have some trouble with the distributor at one time, so I replaced it with a new, after-market electronic distributor.  Now it runs wonderfully!  It is painted the original gray with darker gray pinstripe.  Its front windshield cranks out and rear window rolls down.  This is an excellent car to take to the drive-in.  The trunk is so big you could stash 5 kids in it!  The cowboy didn’t want to sell the car, but he needed a bigger horse trailer so I lucked out and was there at the right time!  Auction Estimate:  $25,000-27,000
