  • 1936 Coupe at Mecum Auction

    Does anyone know anything about this car?

    What do you think about it? I have never had a street rod. Everything has always been stock.

      Really pretty car but I'd have to rub some of that orange off of it.

        Fortunately the builder saw fit to retain that gorgeous original dashboard! The '36 dash is on of my all time favorites of any car ever built. I personally would have to find a way to put door handles back on it-- a pet peeve of mine. What's the first thing you touch every single time you drive the car? If your battery goes dead, how do you get in? What if your "popper fob" goes missing? Why put yourself through all that grief? Just leave the door handles alone you crazy hot rod builders!

        Ok, other than that, it looks like a nice older build that could use a refresh and will possibly be a bit more affordable because of it, chiefly because of the paint. Go for it!

          I dig the color scheme! It's a hot rod so it's supposed to be outrageous. And I totally agree with the dash comment.
