Talking 1935 Ford,s

Recently attended a car show, which had many beautiful cars,including several 1932,33 and 34 Fords.

Any ideas of why the 1935 Ford sedan and coupes are not as popular ?

All information and thoughts appreciated.

Maybe its me and my generation, but I really dont favor an old car like the 30s, 40s, 50s. I generally pull toward the old model camaros, and newer model cars for looks. I dont really see those old cars being really fast. By the way anyone see the concept for the 2004 Mustang. Its pretty cool.

I think one of the big reasons the '35 Ford doesn't make a big splash partly is because of availability of them...the 32-34 models were more plentiful, plus the '35 would be considered the first generation "fat fender" car. If Ford had not made the '36 look so good, you may see more '35's, but the '36 was the next most popular year then and now. Strangly enough, the '35 is almost the same car as the '36, except the hood and grille...which made all the difference. Have friends with both models in coupes and sedans, all nice cars, but the '36 has the edge on looks.But who knows, I remember a time when you couldn't run fast enough to give away a '37 Ford, especially a sedan. Now, if I had a yard full of them, I'd could retire.....go figure....

arggg, the 30s, 40s fords are the prettiest cars built, the 36 being the nicest ford ever built...but that's just my opinion. I'm building a 23 tbucket, my goal is tomake it nice, drive it for awhile and build a coupe when I sell it. The 36 would be my dream car. And you're right, you couldn't give fat fenders away, not that awful long ago. 30s cars were popular stock car material, quite a few bit the dust on the dirt tracks in the 50s and 60s, when you could buy them for 10 bucks. Affordable race cars.
