My '36 Ford

Thought I'd start a build Thread. I learned that I started with way too rough of a car, but it's finally a fun little driver.

It's been about 13 years of work now working on it with my dad (he's 80 now and I'm 50).

This car was cut in half and cowl is from a sedan. The frame rail was cut off from the middle of the x member forward. We bought it off a widow who's husband had started it as a race car for the local dirt track.

What a neat project and story. And there lies proof of my argument that there ARE cars out there to build, if you want to bad enough that is. And you have some serious passion to build what you have, very cool.

Thank you. It's been a great father/son project. He had a bunch of strokes starting about 5 years ago and I had to cut some corners in the end so he could drive it and ride in it before he's gone.

My father missed riding in his 55 F-100 rebuilt by only 2 months.

Neat story Crackerbox. Obviously I have a soft spot in my heart for 36ís but more than that I have a love of home built cars. True car lovers who have a passion to make something special out of what others would call junk is indeed special. You are fortunate to have been able to share this with your dad. I envy you that. I love the car and hope you give us updates from time to time as you detail it and complete your vision.

Good job.
