Description

Lot #1228.1 - This beautiful '35 Ford 3 window is a fantastic way to get into the pre-war classics with a car that is ready to drive and enjoy. 1935 saw many changes to the Ford lineup including a new high class front end, revised frame and the engine mounted further forward for better weight distribution and to increase interior space, and a new, better riding suspension. Motivation comes from Ford's famous Flathead V8 which was only three years old in '35, with aluminum heads producing 90hp allowing effortless cruising even at modern highway speeds. A "high priced" engine in an everyman's car, indeed. Some features of the car seen here include a rebuilt engine, fully refinished brightwork, great looking red wire wheels with wide white wall tires, a tilt out windshield, roll down rear window with retractable sun shade, excellent deep blue paint, superbly finished engine bay and pristine dash and gauges. Arguably, this car is one of the nicest '35 Ford coupes in existence. It's refreshing to see one of these that haven't been made into a Hot Rod.
