A real warm weather fun car


Gas gauge doesn't work.

Two sets of tires since I've owned it.

Generator quit charging.

Right front wheel bearing failed.

Mechanical fuel pump was replaced with an electric one before I bought it, probably because of availability & vapor lock.

General Comments:

This is a rumble seat convertible; lots of fun to drive if you're not in a hurry. It cruises at 52 m.p.h.

It is presently using 50 weight oil; I may switch to 60 weight soon.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I think driving a 1936 car in 2007 is awesome. It's been my dream to have a 1929 Model A Ford pickup to drive to town shopping once a week. And living in Alaska, or another remote area, the older car will be sturdier and better able to stand up to bad roads than some Honda sedan.
