1936 Ford Custom Phantom Convertible Sedan

This 1936 Ford Sedan was transformed into a 34-35-36 Humpback Phantom Convertible Sedan. It had a great platform with only a few minor pinholes in the floor pan but had been hit very hard in the side. My friend Larry had a convertible that was in pretty bad condition so we decided to build a Phantom Car. We took 2-1/2 inches out of the running boards, used the bottom of a 1934 Ford Grill on the 1935 Ford Grill, reshaped the front portion of the fenders as well as reshaping all the fenders where they meet the running boards, and added onto the front inner fender aprons to fill the area under the grill. By using the upper cowl/windshield frame, doors, B and C pillars, we had the makings of a real convertible. Yes it is a one of a kind. The convertible windows will function as well. The picture on the bottom is a 1935 Ford Grill before modification and after, with the 1934 bottom fit onto it. This project is currently on hold because we are concentrating on his Custom Coachbuilt Towncar Delivery.
