1935 Ford Model 68 2 Dr Sedan
To follow up the success of previous years, Ford introduced the Model 48 and Model 68 in 1935. These cars were a major refresh on the overall look and introduced more integrated fenders and a more upright grill. They proved they had a hit on their hands as the price and looks of the 35 propelled Ford sales past their rival Chevrolet and they took the crown for most sales in 1935. The very clean '35 Ford you see here has a great look and combines those original stylings with some street rod touches to create a great driver as well. The front and rear fenders are fiberglass with the rest of the body being all original steel. The build was completed 2 years ago and only has 250 miles on it since it was finished. The body is solid with no issues and is painted in a nice Toyota Speedway Blue color that really pops out in the sun. The 4 piece hood wears its original style trim and all of the chrome/stainless throughout is new and in great condition. It has 32 Ford front and rear bumpers which suit the car nicely. The original chrome headlights and taillights are in place with some aftermarket turn signals mounted on the bumper. It has nice tinted glass and the front windshield does still pop out like they did originally. The car has a nice stance and rides on a set of 15 inch Weld Racing Wheels.
Open up the hood and you will see this beauty is now powered down the road by a 350 V8 260HP GM crate motor. The motor was new when the car was built so it only has 250 miles on it. At that same time the 700R4 was rebuilt and received a TCI shift kit. Under the hood the car has a great look with a nicely painted to match firewall and a lot of chrome/billet accents. It is kept running nice and cool with a 4 core Walker radiator and 17 inch electric fan with adjustable control. Other features include the Sanden AC compressor, chrome alternator, Edelbrock Performer intake, 4 barrel Edelbrock carburetor, HEI distributor, and MSD Street Fire plug wires. In back the car has a 9 inch Ford posi rear end with 3:50 gears and it only has 100 miles on it. So not only does it have a fresh look but the whole drivetrain is fresh as well. It has been upgraded with power steering and power brakes with discs up front. During the build the car received a completely new wiring harness, all new brakes lines/hoses and a new fuel tank with new fuel lines. Under the front, the car now sits on a Fatman Mustang II style independent front suspension and rides down the road very well.
The interior of the car was all redone in Black vinyl and it has dual bucket seats up front. It has a bench seat in back which folds forward and is where you will find some extra storage space and the relocated battery. All of the seats have your standard 3 point shoulder belts for extra safety. Between the seats runs a custom center console with cupholders, a Lokar emergency brake and the Lokar floor shifter. The brake and gas pedal are also from Lokar. The dash of the car is painted to match the body and features white face VDO gauges and Vintage AC controls with inset adjustable vents. The Vintage AC system will also heat and defrost. In front of the driver sits a nice chrome title column topped off with a wood banjo steering wheel.
This car has a great look and being so fresh has a long life left in it. It will make someone a great classic especially if you enjoy driving while showing it off.
