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.
I have a 1935 Chevy coupe all steel pro touring by Barry white that ford is gorgeous keep on enjoying your ride
What front steer/suspension did you use?
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.
I am with you. I am just about to finish up my 51 F10. Used a mustang 302.
My friend has a 35 Ford Pickup he is rebuilding now. That is a beautiful coupe !
Bought in 1960….about the only way to afford one these days….thanks Barrett-Jackson
