About this object
Year: 1935
Make: Ford
Model: V8 3 Window Coupe
Serial No: C18LF9119
Engine Make: Ford
Engine Type: 3.6L 'Flathead' V8
The 1935 Ford, replacing the Ford 40B, was a successful venture. It only offered a 3.6L V8 engine, rather than having the 4 Cylinder option. The suspension was similar to the Model 40B, keeping the traverse leaf spring suspension, but moving the front spring so there was more interior volume.
It looked good, with a lowered body, integrated trunk and a prominent grille helped by de-emphasised and cohesive fenders. There were many accessory options such as Rumble seats, two windscreen wipers, an oil pressure gauge and a radio.
