1936 Ford Model 68 Station Wagon For Sale

1936 Ford Model 68 Station Wagon Despite Chevrolet taking over as sales-leader while Ford retooled at the end of Model T production, the new Model A soon returned Ford to its comfortable place at the top of the sales charts – if only temporarily. Since the days of the Tin Lizzie, the climate of the automobile market changed dramatically, and Ford had to become more fluid to keep up with rapidly changing trends. Compared to the long-running Model T, the Model A's tenure was relatively short, but the car had been an undoubted success and providing the company with momentum going into the 1930s. By 1932, the Model A was phased out, in favor of an all-new car powered by America's first low-cost V8 passenger car engine. Buyers could still opt for the 4-cylinder Model B, but it was the "flathead" V8 that got the headlines and most of the customers. Despite the fanfare surrounding its release, the Ford V8 didn't fully succeed in knocking Chevy off the coveted top spot. However, the Ford V8 gained legions of loyal fans and would go on to become an American legend in its own right. This car introduced eight-cylinder power to the people and would form the foundation of America's love affair with V8-powered speed. The V8 served as the cornerstone of Ford's passenger car lineup throughout the 1930s and beyond. Styling constantly evolved, with changes made on an annual basis to keep the car fresh and competitive. In 1935, Ford heavily revised the chassis for greater refinement and performance, and in 1936 it got beautiful new sheet metal courtesy of Holden "Bob" Koto, working for Briggs Manufacturing Company. Briggs specialized in body construction, and their customers included Ford, Chrysler, Pierce-Arrow, and others. Bob Koto's take on the new Ford featured fully skirted fenders and a cleaner, simplified radiator and hood treatment to give the car a graceful, elegant appearance, with an impression of speed even while parked. Further enhancing the modern look were new stamped steel artillery wheels, which replaced wire wheels once and for all at FoMoCo. Ford continued to offer a wide range of open body styles while its competitors trended toward coupes and sedans. One of the most desirable '36 Fords today is the handsome, wood-bodied station wagon. It employed standard sheet metal up front, with a wood-framed main body and a distinct, sharply raked roofline. The stylish people-mover is the embodiment of the American "Woody," and pop culture icon thanks to surf-culture and hot rodders. Today, unmodified examples are rare and are cherished by the grassroots enthusiast to some of the world's most prominent collectors. This 1936 Ford Station Wagon is a lovely example with an honest, broken-in character thanks to its well-maintained older restoration. This wonderfully inviting and authentic car presents with excellent woodwork and sheet metal. The twin wipers, dual taillights, wheel trim rings, and other details denote this car as a top-line Deluxe model. The black paintwork is in good condition, with a few minor imperfections associated with time and use. The finish quality is consistent on all surfaces, and it remains attractive and appealing. Exterior trim is in good condition with excellent, recently restored chrome bumpers front and rear. The apple green wheels wear correct Deluxe style trim rings and wide whitewall Firestone tires to provide a pop of color against the black body. Importantly, the wood body is in excellent condition. The finish and quality are consistent throughout, showing the woodwork is well-restored and maintained. Doors fit well without signs of sagging that can afflict neglected examples. Front doors feature roll-up glass windows, while the rears have drop-in, removable windows as was factory practice. The spare wheel attaches to the tailgate and is fully-enclosed in a body-color cover, and the cobra-grain vinyl roof topping is in good condition. The interior features period-correct brown upholstery, while rubber floor mats and wood door panels reveal the car's utilitarian purpose. Seats are in excellent order thanks to the use of the proper, hard-wearing vinyl, and the body-color steel dash features original instruments and switchgear in good cosmetic condition. With room for up to seven passengers, this Ford is a great classic to enjoy with family and friends. Fords of this era are tremendous fun to drive, and this example is no exception. The 221 cubic-inch V8 engine delivers plenty of power to motor along with ease, with good brakes and a stable chassis that inspire confidence for relaxed cruising. This car's engine is well-detailed with proper green paint and period-correct labels, hose clamps, and hardware. With its pleasing light patina and well-maintained character, this Ford Deluxe woody is sure to provide many miles of enjoyable motoring for its next caretaker.
