The only information that we have about this car is that the current owner Tom Birch purchased it in 2009.
The 1936 Ford was the second (and last) model year of the Ford Model 48 which was an update of the Ford Model 40A. Production of the Model 40A had lasted between 1932 and 1934.
Production of the Model 48 ran between 1935 and 1936. In 1937 Ford updated its line of cars and introduced a new 136 CID 2.2L V8 as an alternative to the 221 CID 3.6L V8 that had been introduced in 1935.
The 1935 Ford was a complete revitalization of the V8 powered Fords. The previously offered 4 cylinder Model A engine was replaced by the 221 CID 3.6L V8. Other changes included relocation of the front spring as well as the lowering of the body among other smaller changes.
All the changes contributed to a more modern looking car. The 1935 Ford was offered in several body styles which included a new Model 51 truck, a woody station wagon, a convertible, three-window coupe, five-window coupe, Fordor and Tudor sedans as well as a base roadster. Also coupe models could be ordered with Rumble seats.
The combination of practicality, price and looks helped the company sell 820,000 cars that year (1935) surpassing its rival Chevrolet.
In 1936, Chevrolet took back the lead in sales, but Ford was not complaining. With an updated look and a newly introduced Club Cabriolet model, Ford still made excellent sales.
We also know that he is either working or planning to work on a 1965 Ford XL 500 in the future.
