1936 Ford Club Cabriolet - Rare California Car
Garage Kept Motors is honored to offer this awesome piece of American motoring history. 1936 was an excellent year for Ford as they outsold their archival Chevrolet, even in a mid-depression economy. That year, Ford sold only 4,616 Cabriolets and only a small batch of them were Club Cabriolets. In todays market, you will find some other 1936 Ford Cabriolets for sale, but it is very rare to find a Club Cabriolet, which indicated a rear seat enclosed by the soft top. If offers a full trunk - no rumble seat. This is one of those rare finds.
The example offered here is out of an esteemed collection of vehicles with the current owners caring for the car for 50 years. They originally purchased the vehicle out of California from Mr. Bill Wynberg, the cars first owner. The car has been kept all original during their ownership to preserve the cars historical significance. The vehicle is finished in factory original Black paint with a light tan soft top and darker tan leather interior. All restorations on the car have been done to original specifications. This '36 is powered by the original, tried and true Ford 221ci Flathead V8 mated to the original 3-speed manual gearbox. In September of 2017, the car was mechanically gone through and is offered here road ready. The only non-original component is the electric fuel pump, which helps the car start on command. It runs exceptionally well and offers a nostalgic driving experience.
This is a beautiful example that will be hard to replicate at this asking price. With all known ownership history, 50-year ownership by our client, and an extremely rare Club Cabriolet version, it is truly a great find. A car that will continue to appreciate for years to come. e sure to check out all the photos and video on our main website: Garage Kept Motors. Call if interested or e-mail with any questions.
