Early Ford V-8 Club Forum

FORUM RULES: Users agree to these Rules when using Forum.

The site administrator reserves the right to change the terms and conditions of the user agreement without prior notice to the user. It is the responsibility of the user to regularly review the terms of this agreement.

The user agrees to the following terms:

  1. All information that you provide to us for your membership is correct.
  2. You will not use your membership to spam, harrass, or exploit other members in any way.
  3. Vulgar, Abusive, Racist and Sexist Language will not be tolerated.
  4. Commercial-type sales postings will not be allowed.
  5. No mass posting or flooding of the boards is allowed.
  6. No Advertising of parts or cars; no Ebay or business/commercial ads (please use the "Classified" for ads Wanted or For Sale).
  7. VIEWING MULTIPLE TOPICS ON SCREEN: You can choose to see more than 10 Topics at a time ... Log In and choose "Preferences" from the top bar on the Forum page. Scroll down and Change the "Default Topics Returned" parameter to 25 or 50, and save the changes. Since this setting is stored in your browser 'cookies' (if enabled), it seems to use that stored value even if you are not logged in. So, if you use a PC that you haven't logged into the forum from, the setting still seem to remain at the default.
  8. EXTERNAL PHOTO LINKS ON FORUM: You can still use external photo links in your posts on the new forum. They follow the rules of any link in that they have to have the URL link qualified down to the full image file name (example: .jpg). The links will open in a new browser window, the same as an uploaded image attached to a post. Since an image attachment to any post does not display inline with the post, the results are the same. You can use multiple external links within a post. This link is from photos on a site from Don Clink's 'Deuce@75' albums:

    http://donclink.com/deuce_75_1/images/dscn2950.jpg

    Using links from photo sites such as Photobucket can help in "size" issue with uploaded attachment files. For best viewing in web browsers, photos should be around the 800x600 pixel range, and probably not more than 1024x768. Most cameras today store HUGE jpg image files, as the default settings are in the 7, 8, 10, and 12Mb image sizes. The image files that are then attached are very large, and the browser can't display the full image size without using the scroll bars. Use the re-sizing functions of your photo editing software to reduce the image to 800x600, which reduces the file sixe and the image load time in the browser. Don uses Google's free Picassa3 software, which is an excellent photo management product. All of the photo albums of the Deuce, Grand National, and Auburn that are links on the NORG site were built using Picassa's web creation functions. And it's free? (THANKS to Don Clink for the info!)
  9. HOW DO I SHOW MY EMAIL ADDRESS ALONG WITH MY USERNAME? You can LogIn on the Forum, and select PREFERENCES. On this page Members can add optional information such as their City,State, Country; Occupation; Hobbies: list a Homepage; list AOL Instant Messanger Handle; Signature; "Make Email Address viewable to others;" and even change the number of Default Topics shown on a page. WHEN others click on your profile, they will see this information.

I've inhereted my great great grandfather's 1936 sedan delivery, and don't know very much about it. It's in it's original condition, and the title is still in his name from 36. It states that it is a deluxe. Hoping somebody on this forum can enlighten me a little bit on this model. planning a full restore within the year. Thank you

According to the V8 Album (published in 1985) Ford produced 7,592 Standard Sedan Deliveries in 1936 and only 209 Deluxe Sedan Deliveries. So, you have a very rare unit. They came in your choice of a dozen different colors and you could choose black fenders on commercial cars if you wished. The Deluxe appointments included: chrome grille, dual horns, twin tail lights, chrome windshield frame, two sun visors and an arm rest on the driver's door. The '36 was a very successful facelift of the '35 Ford attributed to Holden "Bob" Koto who later played a large role in the design of the '49 Ford.

Welcome to the ranks of the Ford Sedan Delivery fans. We're a small group, but enthusiastic.

Well that's inspiring! That would explain why I've never seen another one in several years of research... Been able to find a standard or two, but never a deluxe. That definitely changes a lot if my previous restoration plan.. The car has never been altered, so I'll restoring it to it's original condition.. I'll keep anybody interested posted. Thank you
Thank

Mr Miller, Such a very rare machine as yours deserves it's original state of grace on the EFV8CA Concourse. It would be a real shame to restore it, as it would lose it's originality forever. I'm hoping to convince you to do as little as possible to put it on the road, no paint, no upholstery, no engine rebuild if possible. In this unmolested original condition, you would earn the prestigious Rouge Award in all three categories, something of a rarity in itself. These are the cars that are the benchmarks for all future generations of Fordophiles.

Thank you again for all of the useful feedback. That's why I joined this forum. I'm definitely torn as to which direction to take this car. Originally, my intentions were based on sentimental reasons, but the rarety of this car puts me at a crossroads. My grandfather has givin me a fairly detailed history of this car from new in 36. It was drivin until the mid 40's, and then stored in a barn until 99, when I inhereted it. I have early pictures of it, and found it in a no sound video from the late 50's. I'm confident that this car will start, but feel that the years in the barn were a little too rough on the rest of the car (seats, some rot in the floorboards, and broken driver and passenger windows. Just need to make sure that I do the right thing with this.

this is the only pic that I have on my computer. I"ll take some better ones. The grill, hood ornament, and running boards are all inside the car. Grill is still in good shape, but the running boards area going to need some attn. Hopefully this picture gives a good idea of the extent of work this car is going to require. quite a bit

You definitely have a restoration project on your hands. Save as many original pieces as you can. As you take it apart you should document the dis-assembly with a camera and make notes. Also put the small parts in bags and label the bags.Periodically post photos and we can tell what parts are saveable and which ones may not be saveable. We will try to give you as much guidance as we can. You have a rare Ford and it should be restored correctly or at least restored to be a good driver quality car.It's you car so you can make the call for how far you want to go with it.
