1935 Ford 5-Window Coupe

img_1001 I bought my 1935 Ford 5 window coupe in 1960 when I was a junior in high school from the original owner. He had put it up on blocks in his garage in 1942, and it rested there until I purchased it. Yes, it is my first car which I was fortunate enough to keep for 56 years now and still counting.

The car has been through a few updates over the years and most recently I finished a rebuild of the car in 2012. Currently my ’35 Ford is equipped with: a 1995 Corvette LT-1 engine, 4L60E Automatic transmission, 1969 Mustang 9″, 4 wheel disc brakes, Mustang II front cross member, tubular A arms, cruise control, Air Conditioning and more.

    Unbelievable, what fortitude to hang onto this car. Very nice except for the engine. :-))

      I agree. I understand the “different strokes for different folks” thing, but I prefer a Ford to be all Ford. I’m currently looking for a early Hot Rod and many are dismissed right away when I look at what is under the hood.
      But kudos to keeping this car for so long. A testament of devotion.
