Stainless steel. The dies only lasted for a few "rounds" because the metal was so strong.

Actually, it was 1936

Seems to be more than just a one year deal, as has been insinuated by some articles. The link I posted also mentions some T-Birds and Lincoln experiments in the 60's-70's.

OK......make, model, original owner.........

WTH? It's a 57 Chevy with the hood thingies removed, 57 Cad quarters, and side trim with 55 Old wheel covers. Owned by Milton Berle's gardener.

I didn't remember ever seeing anything like this, I'll be damned. Thought the 36 ones were the only stainless cars Ford made. Interesting.
