The 1936 Ford Sedan Delivery truck used to be a very popular service. It was used in various tasks such as delivering products across town or hauling equipment for service men. They were very reliable and could take a significant beating. This retired Sedan Delivery has been refurbished and looks incredibly classy. It is finished in an attractive Tacoma Cream paint that is complemented by the classic red wheels fitted with wide whitewall tires.
According to a private dealer from Volo, Illinois, this sedan received a full bare chassis restoration. It is probably one of the most beautiful examples out there. A classic delivery truck turned into a beautiful show car.
During the restoration project, the 221 ci Ford flathead V8 engine was rebuilt. It was rated at 85 horsepower and was connected to a 3-speed manual transmission which was also rebuilt. Most of the mechanical components were also rebuilt. Stainless-steel mufflers and an electric fuel pump were added. The interior was restored to its original look with brown leatherette seats. Fresh trims, headliner, and rear floor panels were also installed. The floor of the rear deck is made of oak.
The 1936 Ford Sedan Delivery received a restyle. It featured a new wraparound grille that had vertical bars. The rear fenders were also new to the 1936 year model.
You can clearly see in the photos that this Ford Sedan Delivery looks perfect without any visible flaws. It is a completely original example which makes it a great show car. The engine bay is pretty clean with the original V8 intact and turns on without any troubles.
Because these sedans were mainly used for hard labor, very few have survived today, especially an example as great as this one. A very solid and reliable example that can be used as a touring car for your business or a classic show car.
Due to its rarity, originality and show class condition, the dealer has placed a price of $36,900 for this classic sedan. Other features include spare tire cover, a complete set of classic Ford tools, dual exhaust, and manifold, and door mirrors on both sides. It received hydraulic brakes to improve the braking power. If you use this classic sedan as an advertising vehicle and paint your company logo on its side, it is possible to get some tax discounts. Would you drive it?
