Original Beauty: 1936 Ford 3-Window Coupe


Some cars hit our automotive palette and are “just right.” This 1936 Ford 3 Window Coupe is one of those cars that satisfies the senses. Listed as original, with quite a bit of recent maintenance, the mind is intrigued as much as the heart. Bidding is currently up to $50,000 and the reserve is not met. Find this beautiful Ford here on ebay out of Trabuco Canyon, California.


Looking at the bay, all we can really see is how beautiful the paint is on the headlight. Although the engine and bay are very nice on this Ford. The Flathead V8 has been rebuilt by the previous owner, while the current owner had the engine freshened up. The engine looks clean and original, with minimal patina to show proof of its age. The paint on the firewall is very nice, as well as on the inside of the hoods.


The interior is equally as nice as the outside of this Ford. The seat and the door panels look flawless, with no evidence of wear or fade. The dashboard and instruments look fantastic. More like a time capsule, this Ford has to be one of the nicest surviving 3 Window Coupes. Factory equipped with a Rumble seat, we really aren’t sure if it gets any better than this. A bright luster to the paint and body work give the appearance of restored car, but this Coupe does have some flaws. The front windscreen has some rust in the lower passenger side corner. Otherwise there are no other rust issues with this Ford. Although beautiful and appearing stock, there are some mild modifications done to this Coupe, most obviously the fender skirts and the lowered stance. Lincoln Zephyr hubcaps are affixed to the front wheels, though the seller has the original caps. Upon looking at the car and the ebay ad it is clear the seller is meticulous about the work performed on this car. Very high quality work with a great attention to detail.


Let’s be honest, if you won the lottery, how many of you would jump into a bidding war over this Ford? We know we certainly would. It is often difficult to find a true use for the word “perfect” but this Ford comes awfully close to being perfect. We would be pleased to just stare at this car in person for a few minutes in total silence, it is truly a beautiful car. What do you think will be the final winning price for this Ford?

    I’m not normally a Ford fan but this 3 window coupe is to die for. I’d guess it will bring around 80K. If I had the cash I sure would be bidding on it. Just beautiful.

    That is just outstanding. Nice way to start the day, thanks.

      I couldn’t agree with you more.

    A few years back I saw a black 35 three window (basic body shell is essentially identical to this 36) that was slightly lowered in front and decided it replaced the 33/34 five window coupes as the prettiest Fords ever made. At least to my eyes.

    33-37 Ford coupes are simply the ultimate in automotive styling, other than the higher priced cars of the time (Cord, Duesenberg, Auburn).

    Can’t tell if it’s an LB block or not. Early ’36 still ran babbit mains while later ones switched to precision inserts. Really doesn’t matter; the car is great. Ditch the skirts! They look hideous on anything built before 1960. If I took this car home the skirts would be history.

    Dito on the skirts! When we were drag race, no substitute for cubic inch kids in the 60s and 70s, skirts and ‘conny’ kits were forbotten! (I don’t know how to spell forbotten, but you get the drift.)

      Verboten is the spelling auf deutsch.

    It has a few custom touches to it body and suspension…all which improve the look….Sitting still it a flowing work of art. The skirts are a positive custom add on…..The mid 30’s and up are about flowing lines up to mid 40’s. I would look so good driving it anywhere. Hope it stays in America….
