History:


The only information that we have about this car is that the current owner Tom Birch purchased it in 2009.

Additional Facts:

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.

Present Or Future Plans:

We also know that he is either working or planning to work on a 1965 Ford XL 500 in the future.

My Ride’s Pictures:
36 Ford Roadster Description of Picture on the Left:
Very nice picture of the 36 Ford Roadster. The owner didn’t provide that much information, but I don’t think that this beautiful Hot Rod needs a lot of words to describe it. In fact I don’t think that you could do it justice trying to describe it. But what the hell… I will give it a try. The red color and tan convertible top really suit this beauty. And the subtle flames coming out of the engine’s side panels make this ride look real hot. Click on the Picture to enlarge.
Description of Picture on the Right:
Another picture of the 36 Ford Roadster. This picture was taken with the Engine hood open. The Rumble seat which was an option on these cars is also open in this picture… And look who’s sitting on it… It looks like a super large size Barbie is sitting on the Rumble seat. Another thing (or things) worth mentioning are the shining chromed wheel rims. Click on the Pic to enlarge.

This is obviously not a high definition picture, but it is clear enough to see how clean (and tidy) the under side of this beauty is. I have never seen such a clean car underneath. The undercarriage is painted red including the frame. The exhaust is Stainless Steel and the differential is chromed. There doesn’t seem to be any dirt or even a speck of dust on the underside of this Hot Rod. Click on the picture to enlarge.
Description of Picture on the Right:
This is a picture of the 1936 Ford Roadster’s Engine. According to the owner, this engine is a 302 Ford. This is obviously not the original engine of the Ford Roadster. I am not sure, but telling by the valve cover seen in the picture, it might be the engine that the Shelby Cobra GT 350 were equipped with. If I am right, this engine puts out 250HP @ 4,800RPM.

What a great picture of the front of the 1936 Ford Roadster with the driver’s side door open. The front of this Hot Rod is exceptionally clean. There is no bumper or major fixtures or accessories on the front of this ride. Only the headlights and the grille stand out on the picture. The open driver’s side door also stands out with the ghost flames painted on it. Click on the picture to enlarge.
Description of Picture on the Right:
This is a picture of the 1936 Ford Roadster’s interior showing the steering wheel, and the dashboard. The picture also shows the interior of the driver’s door panel. The interior of this Hot Rod has been immaculately restored. Attention to detail is obvious everywhere you look inside this ride. Click on the Pic to enlarge.
