'36 Ford 3-Window Coupe Resto-Rod

36 Ford 3-Window Coupe Late-50s Style Resto-Rod

The Resto-Rod style of street rod was born of the realization among hot rodders in the late 50s that the popular pre-war hot rod body styles, especially Fords, were starting to get scarce and that these classic bodies were at risk of disappearing under the welders torch. So rodders began preserving the original bodies and trim, while hopping up, restoring, re-upholstering and repainting the old cars in the hot rod style. This AMT 36 Ford 3-window coupe is done in the early form of the Resto Rod style as it would have been seen in the late 50s, particularly in Southern California. Finished in Duplicolor Bright Red, the body and trim is completely stock except for the deleted rumble seat handle. The roof height is stock, too. But the stance is lowered 4 scale inches all around and the rolling stock is classic 50s Firestone DeLuxe white walls (courtesy of Scenes Unlimited) with flipper hubcaps taken from an AMT 40 Ford Sedan Delivery kit. The interior was redone in scratch-built tuck and roll and a 40 Ford steering wheel. The motor, a tri-carb Pontiac V8 from the AMT kit, is classic late 50s vintage. Given that this AMT kit was first introduced in 1961 I would thing this sort of car was certainly one option the kits creators would have had in mind.

Thanx for lookin,
B.
