Presented here is nothing short of a very high level restored classic car that's ready for driving, and showing at most any car show venue you might care to drive it, or trailer it to.
The Ford Fordor convertible is fairly rare by today's standards as far as early classic cars go, but to find one that's been restored to such a high level, that all you need to do is open the doors so your guests can ease in, and drive away to your favorite dinner spot, take a ride in the country, or make a day of a classic car show, well, that can be difficult to find anywhere, let alone to find a classic with this much class!
The Ford is so nicely restored that every time you approach it, or get in it, you will find a piece of quality workmanship you didn't notice before. It's really that nice!
This Convertible starts, runs and drives very nicely too. And with the 2 speed Columbia differential, operated by a switch on the dash, you can roll down the highway at a more rapid, comfortable speed.
The paint is beautiful, deep and quality. The Cordoba Gray gives this convertible a very deserved additional touch of class, add to this the deep taupe interior, and fine metallic painted surfaces such as the dash and door trim and you have a classic car that literally everyone will be impressed with. The red Kelsey-Hayes spoke wheels allow the red pinstripe to “pop” and , of course, the wide white wall tires finish off the classic look of this magnificent sedan convertible.
The flat-head V8 will fire right up, and run as smooth as the painted surface of this convertible, and the transmission shifts as well as I could imagine it did driving away from the Ford dealership brand new in 1935. Again, what you see here is an excellent example of a unique, if not rare original 1935 Ford 4 door convertible. It's beautifully restored everywhere you look, and ready to show and drive whenever you are!
