1935 Ford 5 Window Coupe Original Barn Find

JohnCar Sales, Cool CarsApril 13, 20170 Comment

Here is a 1935 Ford 5 Window Coupe Original Barn Find…


 

This classic barn find is virtually complete, see the pictures in the post below

 

 

1935 Ford Coupe 5 Window

 

It has a rock solid floor, comes complete with rear fenders – which are rarer than hen’s teeth. As you know they are only making them for the 1936 Fords.

Nice straight hood sides and grill.

 

 

 

Other good features:

Clear title

 

Matching VIN on frame

 

Matching V8 Flathead (engine is stuck but rebuildable)

 

Transmission shifts and it does roll

 

Original rims and driveline

 

 

 

Comes with a few pieces of sheet metal that it does need

 

Window hardware is included

 

Comes with interior window bezels

 

 

Roof is straight

Drip edges are good

Has original paint

 

This 1935 Ford Coupe 5 Window is ready to be taken apart and media blasted to start metal work

 

 

Trunk area is decent, this will make a nice hot rod or original

This is a great example of an unmolested original survivor

 

 

 

 

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

 

 

 

Has original steer column and dash. As well as the hood is very straight on the top edges.

 

 

 

 

We are also offering this car as one of our high-end 1935 Ford Turn Key Builds.

So don't hesitate.

If you want this car, drop the hammer or it will be gone.

 

 


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

 

 

 

1935 1936 ford 5 window coupe art morrison Chassis classic car shop florida

 

 

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 ash tray.

3 Tips on How to Choose a Classic Car in Florida

JohnCar Sales, Classic Car RestorationApril 7, 20170 Comment

3 Tips to Choose a Classic Car in Florida Before You Buy…

 

While choosing The Best Classic Car in Florida to collect classic cars can be a massively fun and rewarding hobby, it’s one you want to enter with your eyes wide open.

 

 


 

  • Decide if you're building a car for equity or for passion.

 

 

  • Research the Value of the Car Completed, Reverse Engineer the Build

 

 

  • Find a solid frame and body

 

 


Decide Why You’re Building a Classic Car

 

Some old cars appreciate in value, while others simply idle or take a nosedive.

 

If you are buying a classic car as an investment, ensure you know how the vehicle has appreciated over time.

 

 

Confirm once you are 100% satisfied.

 


Research the Value of the Car Completed

You can do some research on Hemmings Motor News and Ebay as well as Nada Classic Car Guide. This will give you true numbers.

You need to do a bullet point list and cost sheet of what you need from…

It might look something like this: 

  • Engine
  • Chassis/Frame
  • Suspension
  • Rims & Tires
  • Weather-stripping
  • Glass
  • Interior
  • Wiring
  • Body & Paint
  • Assembly
  • Etc...

 

 

At that point in time you’ll have a rough idea of where you will be at the end of a build.

 

Don’t buy a vehicle which requires significant repairs and restoration unless you are 110 percent committed to completing the work.

 

Frequently, car collectors get into the hobby and get in over their heads. Bank accounts get drained, patience gets strained and the classic car is never restored.

If you are serious about purchasing a classic car that needs restoration and you have both the financial resources and the follow-through to complete the task.

 

It’s possible to find classic cars in Florida to meet all your requirements from start to finish. If you shop carefully, you can find a great deal and save yourself time and money.

 


Find a Solid Frame & Body

If you can do this, you will have good bones to work off of.

1984 CJ-7 Nevada Jeep

 

 

 

Check out the walk around Video tour of the finished  CJ7 Jeep)

 

 

 

 

 

“OEM” Jeep Restoration


 

This is Jeep has an original rust free body - there is ZERO rust - and its repainted with the original “sunshine” yellow color.

 

We opted to remove the doors and the hood and prep the truck with the original paint sanded.

 

We found absolutely zero rust which makes this CJ-7 a good candidate for a restoration...

 

Then we applied 2 part urethane grade primer.

Next step was to sand out the primer up to 320 grit. The hood had a few dings in it so we repaired with minimal filler

 

 

This is what we call a 3/4 restoration doing a nice clean well executed Job with out Braking the bank ..with out  doing a complete tear down ..and making the CJ-7 Un- affordable to many

 

 

OUR goal is to Make it so Everyone can afford  ! and build with moderate 2 inch lift and 33 in tires something that looks cool and still goes down the highway Nicely

 


 

CJ-7 Jeep Restoration Shop Florida at palm beach customs

 

 

The doors, you will see pictures, were rock solid. So we stripped them down, removing all old weather stripping. Then just about every CJ-7 door I’ve seen has a little fatigue crack on the inside next to the vent window. So that was prepped, MIG welded and body worked so you can’t tell as well as all new seam sealer applied on the factory seams.

 


 

FYi It Requires 16 hour just to strip paint and rebuild 2 doors ... Yeas 2 days labor ...

 

CJ7 Jeep Doors being prepped in palm beach customs cj7 jeep restoration shop florida

 

 Do you think its a good Idea to rebuild the doors and install new weatherstrips ? look how brittle they are after 30 plus years in service

 

Replacing hard door weather stripping in our cj-7 jeep restoration shop florida

 

This is the full weatherstripping kit we use on the door rebuild

 

 


 

After this work was done we followed the same procedure with the high-build urethane primer and prepped ready for base coat, clear coat. The doors have all new gaskets and brand new door locks with a set of matching keys. As well as a new set of stainless steel hinges for the doors, brand new stainless mirrors that are really cool.

This Jeep I chose to leave all the factory fusion welds from the factory assembly as is. This Jeep will be perfect for a real Jeeper. As you’ll see, in the following pictures and descriptions, we chose to restore this Jeep as a ¾ restoration to keep the buy-it price reasonable.

 

 

jeep restoration shop florida cj7 sunshine yellow oem

 

There was no reason to strip this CJ-7 down and do a nut and bolt restoration.

 

The suspension was brand new Rough County 2 in lift

 

 sheetmetal, the body mounts, and all are in great shape.

 

rotors and pads were brand new as well as we replaced the front Brake hoses

 


 

If you’re looking for a nut-and-bolt restoration and you want to spend triple the money, we Be more than happy to do that for you

 

Check out this project here that took 500-hours to build to see what a complete restoration looks like.

 

 


We also replaced the front windshield frame with a new window gasket and a lower cowl seal, cleaned up and greased all wiper linkage. The reason that we had to do that was that someone installed the light bar fog lights and drilled into the side of the original window frame – it just wasn’t pretty so we opted to replace that.

 

cj-7 jeep restoration shop florida new window frame, window cowl gasket, and windshield seal


This Jeep has a 6 cylinder with great compression and around 130k miles all gone through with new plugs, wires, fuel pump, air filter, oil change, new alternator, serp. belt, antifreeze, differential oil... brakes are awesome in excellent shape.


Brand new rough country leaf springs, new set of shocks, awesome exhaust with a stainless steel catalytic converter, with the 6 cylinder header with the exhaust custom bent to fit into the cat. Sounds beautiful.

 


 

 

 

Nice set of rims with the black satin & New 33 x 12.50 R 15 LTs Pro Comp tires. Comes with a spare, but it’s not a matching spare.

 Fresh, high-quality, 2-part spray-on bedliner – we are a licensed Reflex spray-on bedliner applicator.

The CJ-7 Jeep was steam cleaned and the bottom was prepped (no rust) and then we chassis blacked with black satin underneath of the floors, the frame, and differentials. We just sprayed undercoating on the wheel tubs, not under the floors so that you can see they are OEM originals.



cj7 jeep restoration shop florida undercoating


 

High Quality paint, wetsand, and buff...

 

We took everything out of the Jeep before painting. We then sealed it with 2-part Debeer urethane primer that we use on the custom car builds. Then it was wet sanded before we put on 4 coats of yellow base and 3 coats of high grade urethane clear ultra-fined and buffed at 1500 up to 3000 in a 3-stage buff.

The hard top has been cleaned up – it had no cracks in it. We took off the tint that wasn’t looking that good, cleaned the glass, shot the top with the black satin.

We have a decent set of seats with a console in there, custom tan at about 90% - they are not perfect but they are more than acceptable.

If you have a CJ-7 you would like us to restore Not A problem

Get intouch with us

 

We did this as an OEM restoration – in other words – this is for the Real Jeep people that understand that we didn’t build this out like a Rolls Royce and take out every little wave. We left the original fusion welds in the quarters. So it’s factory – no bondo – except for in the hood in the few spots

This Jeep is a good Jeep for someone to get into and drive it for 20 years and make a few updates as you see fit. It’s a good running Jeep with power steering

That’s about it...

 

The body mounts are perfect, the frame is perfect. This is a solid Jeep from Nevada.

 

 


 Amazing you could even see the original marks from the Jeep assembly line build

I have been restoring cars along time (here is the math) for the serious

this Project is the best I have seen in a long time for good solid bones

many  pictures show the rails and structure especially for a good Big block 69


Here is the Math

 

Car cost 16,500 ( what you see listed in auction )

sheet metal needed $2500.00 ( nose and doors

Paint and materials $2000.00

Total To have car ready for assembly

budget to build body $21,000

This is why this project makes sense ( car is worth 75 k plus completed )

Yes this is for the Big Boys and girls you still will have to do suspension engine /trans

along with complete dash and wiring harness .. Glass as well as full interior kit

The point ? when you can have a Real Cobra jet Body for the price of

a Dynacorn Body unpainted ..well you decide

7 days ready for paint

1 day tear down

1 day sandblast

2 days’ new pans and radiator support

1 day hang new doors and nose

last day prep rear quarters and trunk

7 more days’ body prep jamb and paint

14 days Painted and ready to assemble


  

We will be more than happy to do our very best to answer any questions or concerns

no matter how minor you may think they are.
