1936 FORD CABRIOLET RUMBLE SEAT, A CLASSY BEAUTY FROM FORD

Share The Beach

THIS FORD CABRIOLET KNOWN AS THE MODEL 68, TYPE 760, HAS A 112 INCH WHEELBASE AND WAS POWERED WITH A 221 CID, 85 HP FLATHEAD V-8. HENRY FORD REFUSED YET AGAIN TO INCLUDE HYDRAULIC BRAKES OR INDEPENDENT SUSPENSION. ALL THE COMPETITORS INCLUDED THESE MODERN ENGINEERING FEATURES. BUT, STEEL DISC WHEELS REPLACED THE WIRE WHEELS THAT IMPROVED RIDE QUALITY. STYLING REVISIONS GRACED THESE THIRTY SIXES INCLUDING SWOOPING FENDERS AND THE GRACEFUL VERTICAL BARS ON THE GRILLE, MAKING ANY ’36 FORD A FAVORITE WITH COLLECTORS. MODEL YEAR PRODUCTION WENT UP 13 PERCENT KEEPING FORD IN FIRST PLACE WITH A TOTAL OF 930778. THE RUMBLE SEAT IN BACK WOULD BE THE LAST YEAR FOR THIS FEATURE. NOTICE THE “BANJO” STEERING WHEEL, THE VENTS ON THE HOOD SIDES, THE STEEL WHEELS, THE FENDER SKIRTS, AND THE SPARE TIRE COVER MOUNTED IN BACK. IF YOU’RE A FORD FAN OR NOT, TAKE IN THE DESIGN, THE STYLE, THE OVERALL LOOK OF THIS CAR AND YOU MIGHT AGREE THAT THIS IS A REAL CLASSY BEAUTY. Another restored car brought to you by 55lincoln. THANKS VERY MUCH FOR VIEWING.
