THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

1935 saw a complete redesign for the Ford V-8. The engine was relocated substantially forward of the front wheel centerline and the hood shortened to dramatically enlarge the passenger compartment and locate rear seat passengers in front the rear axle without lengthening the wheelbase. Ford called it "Center-Poise Ride" and it was a noticeable improvement in interior room and ride. The front fenders were deeply skirted, as they had been since early in '33 model production. The frame X-member was made much larger and the frame side rails boxed for greater stiffness. It is a car with attitude, attitude that apparently appealed, and still appeals, to a certain group of collectors and Ford enthusiasts.

Henry Ford mightily resisted the idea that his new V-8 engine might supplant the steady, reliable four-cylinder of the Model T and Model A. Similarly, trucks were an afterthought at Ford who largely left trucks to aftermarket converters like Graham. But, progressively through the 1930s they were added to the range and as the post war era arrived they became more numerous in production.

The example we offer here is a rather appealing 'barn find' example of their Panel Delivery truck, with solid but well aged aesthetics. In its present guise, it currently has a Ford flathead engine 24 bolt cylinder head with stamping 8BA which decodes it as a 1950 239 cid 100 hp engine, while also accompanying it is an older flathead with many parts and the original three speed manual with matching numbers to the chassis. The cabin appears to display all original instruments and switches, and has an accessory "Evans" heater, while the exterior carries extras of a right side mounted spare tire, "Stewart V Ray" searchlight on drivers door, and traffic indicators. Attesting to its originality, even original Ford headlight lenses are still in place.

At present the car's engine is 'free' but has not been run and so the car will require recommissioning prior to road use.
