1936 Ford tudor sedan owned by Bobby DeMarco of Long Beach, California. Bobby sold the car to Ramblers of Long Beach member Ed Hemry around 1951. In 2015 fellow Ramblers member Bruce Bartlett told Kustomrama that the car was pretty rough when Ed got it; "The metal insert that had been put in the top was lifting up all the way around. The paint was bad. There were dents, the top piece of the grille was missing, and the tuck and roll interior was pretty well thrashed, but Ed thought it was worth making right and he wasn't afraid of the challenge. Less than a year after he started bringing the car back to its former glory he got drafted into the Army. Vietnam. He was about 4 years older than the rest of us. So he sold it before shipping out around 1954." Bruce believes Bobby DeMarco graduated in 1952 or 1953.[1]
