Mike Young's 1936 Ford 3-Window Coupe
1936 Ford Model 68 DeLuxe 3-Window Coupe owned by Mike Young of Austin, Texas. In 2009 the car was originally built into a mild tail dragging custom by famed custom car builder Gary Howard. It was finished in dark blue lacquer paint with a brown mohair upholstery. Power came from a Jim Cook rebuilt 1967 Chevrolet 327ci V8 with a slightly larger cam that was paired with a performance four-speed GM 700R4 Turbo Hydra-Matic automatic transmission and a Ford nine-inch rear end.
In 2015 famed custom car builder Lee Pratt turned the car into a 1950s inspired hot rod. It received a dropped axle, front disk brakes, and chromed steel wheels with dome hub caps. Inside, Pratt installed a custom-made under-dash five-gauge cluster with Stewart-Warner amps, oil pressure, temperature, fuel, vacuum gauges, and a steering column-mounted RPM gauge. Mike kept the original roll-down rear window, crank front window, AM radio, deco gauges, banjo steering wheel, and after-market blinker switch.
Early in 2022 Mike decided to sell some of the cars in his collection in order to get down to a few he could drive regularly. He is asking US $89,000.00 for the coupe. Please get in touch with Mike at email@example.com for more info, photos, and details.
