Dave Gayner's 1936 Ford
1936 Ford Roadster owned by Oakland King Pins member Dave Gayner of Piedmont, California. The car was dechromed and painted deep maroon and fit with a white padded top. A 1940 Ford Standard dashboard was cut to fit the roadster cowl. The interior was done in pleated ivory and wine rugs. A 1953 Dodge V8 nestled under the hood, hooked to a Ford side shift box containing 1948 Lincoln 25-tooth clutter gears. The rear end originated from a 1948 Mercury and the rear axle was a Columbia unit. The front was lowered by installing a 2 1/2 dropped Dago axle, and the rear was lowered 2 inches by straightening the rear cross member.
