1936 Ford V8 DeLuxe Roadster


As buyers continued to prefer closed bodies during the early 1930s, many manufacturers saw sales of open body styles, particularly truly open cars like tourers and roadsters, shrink dramatically. At the same time, cars had never looked better, and Ford, in particular, rapidly adopted more streamlined, rounded lines that gave even their popular-priced automobiles an upmarket look. That, and the famous V-8 in an affordable car, cemented Ford’s legacy as the best-selling vehicles of their era.

The happy, if unintended, result of this was that cars like this 1936 Ford DeLuxe Roadster were so rare when new—with only 3,862 of this model built—that the survivors are hotly desired by collectors today and are among the most sought-after and valuable of all period V-8 Fords.

This restored Roadster is beautifully finished in original Vermillion red and is fitted with a rear dickie/rumble seat. It is styled by Koto whose career spanned nearly 40 years. The engine is a flat-head 3600cc V8 with a series 59AB block that is aligned to a three speed manual gearbox.

Les voitures comme cette Ford DeLuxe 1936 ont été si rares , seulement 3.862 ont été fabriquées, que les “ survivantes” sont aujourd’hui les modèles  V8 Ford de cette période qui sont ceux qui ont le plus de valeur et sont les plus recherchés par les collectionneurs.


Ce Roadster restauré est superbement fini en rouge Vermillon avec un petit siège arrière. Son style lui a été donnée par Koto, qui a fait carrière pendant 40 ans.Le moteur, un 3.600cc V8 à pistons à tête plate, avec un block 59AB est associé à une boite 3 vitesses manuelle.
