1936 Ford 5-Window Coupe Street Rod

The 1935/36 Model 48 replaced the 40A with a lower body, the engine and grille were pushed forward giving more room in the cabin. The four cylinder engine was no longer available, all Ford cars were powered by the Flathead V8.

There were still many body styles available; Flatback or Trunkback Sedans, Tudor, 3 or 5 window Coupes, Roadster, Phaeton and Woody Wagon. (no Victoria body now).

The Model 48 got a facelift in 1936 with the hood now coming over the grille which now had just vertical bars, it was available in Standard or Deluxe. (Deluxe had Chrome bars in the grille) also new for 1936 were the use of pressed steel artillery solid wheels instead of wire wheels.

The 1936 Ford was not only built in the US but also in other countries including Australia.

Chevrolet regained the sales lead at the end of 1936, but the Ford still sold extremely well. A new club cabriolet model was introduced with a fully framed windshield and weatherproof top, and the convertible sedan gained the popular integrated trunkback design.

The look was updated with an inverted pentagonal grille with all-vertical bars beneath a prominent hood and three horizontal chrome side strips (on DeLuxe models). A concealed horn, long a prominent part of the Ford's design, also brought the car into modern times. The new trucks continued with the old grille. Other major changes for 1936 were the use of pressed steel "artillery" solid wheels instead of wire wheels.
