Description

This 1936 Ford Model 68 Deluxe Convertible Sedan is an outstanding example of the breed, restored to a standard seldom seen on these cars. For the 1936 model year, Ford bucked market trends toward closed cars and continued to offer a wide range of open-topped models. Of the nearly 20,000 open body cars Ford sold that year, just 5,601 were Convertible Sedans, which was among the most expensive of the range. This superb car is undoubtedly one of the finest examples of its kind extant. The earliest history of this car is not currently known, but it is understood this example was discovered by Ford expert Mr. Jack Hogan, who purchased it from the daughter of a long-time owner, a schoolteacher from Pocatello, Idaho. During Mr. Hogan’s ownership, the car received the exacting restoration it currently wears.

Thanks to meticulous care in the hands of subsequent owners, this Ford remains in superb condition today. Finished in a lovely shade of Armory Green over saddle leather and a light tan top, the paintwork is excellent with straight reflections and exemplary panel alignment. Doors shut with the precision of a superb, low mileage car. Details like the brightwork, chrome wheels, and period-correct accessories are all finished to a similarly high standard. The factory deluxe wheels wear Firestone double whitewalls to round out the outstanding presentation.

Inside, brown leather covers the front and rear seats. As a testament to the originality of the car before its restoration, the original back seat cushion was left intact, and it remains in incredibly well-preserved condition today. The remainder of the interior is restored using correct materials and finishes, showing just the slightest signs of use in the seating surfaces. Likewise, under-hood finishing, and detailing is superb and highly authentic.

Shortly after the restoration, this Ford earned its AACA Senior Award in a 2002 national competition, and it racked up an impressive number of special awards, including the Grand National Dearborn Award in 2004 and several Dearborn Emeritus awards in subsequent years. Despite the time elapsed since its restoration, this remains one of the most outstanding examples of the 1936 Ford Deluxe we have encountered, and we are delighted to offer it for sale today. Now gently mellowed, this superb Ford is ready for enjoyment on tours or for continued success on the show field. However its next owner chooses to use it, we are sure that it will bring many more years of delightful enjoyment.

The brightwork chrome wheels and other period-correct accessories make the driver feel as if he/she is sitting in a time capsule.

Inside, the craftsmanship of Ford truly shines through with the original 83 year old seat cushion, which only shows the slightest signs of wear. This car was restored as closely as it could possibly be to original. The attention to detail doesn't stop in the interior.
