There’s some direct sheet metal goodies that come with the project.

Below is an Art Morrison Chassis which would be awesome to pair with this build!

Here’s a history of the 1935 Ford Coupes and some cool original Ford ads that we dug up…

The ’35 Ford Coupes were the Model 48 which was an update of the Ford’s V8-powered Model 40A

Beginning in 1935, the Model 48 was given a cosmetic refresher each year, begetting the 1937 Ford. The price, practicality, and looks catapulted Ford ahead of  Chevrolet that year, with about 820,000 of the 35s sold that year

To the eye, the 1935 Ford Coupe 5 Window was much more modern with its grille pushed forward with de-emphasized and integrated front fenders. A major difference was an integrated trunk on the trunk-back sedans.

Two trim lines were offered with the 35 Ford – the standard or the DeLuxe, across a number of different body styles from the base roadster, the five-window coupe (above), the three-window coupe, Tudor and Fordor sedans in two versions, a convertible sedan, a woody station wagon, and the trucks. Wow!

Additionally, rumble seats were an option with the coupe model. A buyer could also opt for an oil pressure gauge (for an additional $4). Two windshield wipers were also optional. If one got the radio installed, it replaced the ashtray.
