One-hundred sixteen years ago, on June 4, 1896, Henry Ford’s first automobile, the
Quadracycle, roared to life in the little workshop behind his home on 58 Bagley Street. From those humble beginnings came some of the most memorable cars in history, ranging from the Model T, which put the world on wheels, to the 200 MPH Mustangs of today. Vintage Motor Cars celebrates this milestone with a tribute to the cars of Henry Ford, and we have quite a few to offer, including Fords, Mercurys, and Lincolns!
This week’s feature car is a delightful 1936 Ford V8 convertible sedan, and it’s a mystery why this car is still in our showroom. By far my personal favorite, it is reliable, energetic, and flat-out gorgeous with its top down in the sun. It features a 1937 flathead V8, which means modern insert bearings for unparalleled durability and a wonderful V8 exhaust note. Where many of the cars of the period are ponderous and deliberate, this sweet little Ford whispers, “Let’s play!” in your ear every time you turn the key. Plus it’s an outright bargain at just $34,900. Just between you and me, I’m really going to miss this one when it’s gone.
