    1936 Ford Tudor Sedan Shell & Rolling Tube Chassis - FS

    I hate to do it, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.

    This is one of those times.

    What I have here is a 1936 Ford Tudor Sedan body shell (the entire exterior of the body, less the running boards) in fair condition.

    The fenders are rough, but all there, and the car is pretty solid. There is rust on the lower portion of the cowl, rockers, door bottoms, and quarter panels at the B pillar, but nowhere else that I have found. The floor was a total loss and has been removed.

    For everything I have (body shell, doors, two complete hoods, nose grille, front & rear fenders, bumpers, radiator, seat springs & frames, a spare (but highly rusty) cowl), I will take $1,500.

    The chassis I fabricated from steel tube and utilizes advanced suspension design concepts to create a level of road holding and cornering that most hot rods of this age can only dream of.

    The wheelbase is 112" and the track width (hub face to hub face) is 60", both front and rear.

    Racing parts have been extensively utilized. Four wheel Wilwood disc brakes, Winters magnesium 007 Wide Five hubs, lightweight steel wheels from Diamond Racing Wheels, 16"x 9.5" Firestone FireHawk WideOval radial tires, full floating rear hubs on a 9" ford housing, double wishbone (SLA) front suspension with rack & pinion steering (using an Appleton racing power rack, not some repurposed Pinto unit), three link rear suspension with a torque cushioning spring loaded upper link, and floating (decoupled) rear brakes.

    Only the best parts were used in this build, and everything that was fabricated had many months of design and analysis invested in it before fab ever started.

    Since these pictures were taken, I have scavenged the brake rotors, calipers, pads, and steering rack for use on my oval racing cars.

    The price for the rolling chassis as it sets now is $4,975.

    My prices are pretty firm, but if you've got an offer, lay it on me, worst that can happen is I say, "No".

    Buyer pays for shipping, or you can pick it up at my shop. I will load onto an open sided trailer with my fork truck for free.

    Crating, packaging, etc required for shipping will be extra, at the buyer's expense. I suggest contacting Ben D on the HAMB if you need it shipped.


    Now some pictures.

    Body shell:























    Rolling Chassis:

    NOTE: Brake Calipers, Pads, Rotors, and Steering Rack have been repurposed for use on my oval racing cars. They no longer come with the chassis.























    That is all.

    Thanks for looking.

    I'll take $1,500 for the fenders, and you can have the rest of the body for free, if you want it.

    Also, NEW PRICE for the ROLLING CHASSIS (less the brakes and steering rack) is $5,500.

    Dear Ryan, If I remember correctly, all '36 Fords had a 112" wheelbase. Have you ever had your body on your frame? Your frame looks Killer too.

    Thank you, and I have not had the body on the frame yet. There was so much rust damage to fix in the bases of the door frames that I never got to the hanging it part before I ran out of money.

    Looking at the prints I built the chassis from though, this car was set up with a 112" wheelbase to match the body.

    If I said otherwise up above, it was wrong. The prints tell the tale, and they say 112" is what got built.

    If you like the chassis, make me an offer on it. I have to sell it, no time or money to finish it (which is a damned dirty shame, but what can you do, we're in a depression).

    Still got this, still need to sell it.

    Make me an offer.

    Worst I can do is decline (maybe make fun of you a bit in the process ).
