85 HP, 221 cid, L-Head V-8 Engine, 3-Speed Transmission Chassis No. 18-2044063 Subtle improvements were the way at Ford during the 1930's, but the difference between 1934 and 1935 were significant. Advertised as having "Greater Beauty, Greater Comfort, Greater Safety", the new body design was touted as offering better protection for the occupants, but Fords still retained their mechanical brake operation. Styling was important and this year Ford was to regain its market leadership by out-selling rival Chevrolet. One of the biggest events for Ford this year was the honor of pacing the Indianapolis 500 race. This smart little coupe is finished in gloss black with red wire spoke wheels that wear 8.00" x 16" tires. The interior is upholstered in tan mohair and there are a few accessories on this car. Bumper mounted fog lights start the show, with the enclosed rear mounted spare tire. The trunk is absolutely huge, just about big enough to hide an elephant. This coupe appears to have been given a cosmetic restoration a while but there is some patina of age found on some of the bright work and even the carpeting on the passenger cabin. One of the most sought after early V-8 Fords, this little coupe would look great in the collection nearly any fans of this marque.
