1936 Ford CoupeWith a Little Help

When Ray and Tina bought their ‘36 Ford coupe, it needed more than a little help. Although the previous owner had started to build it as a street rod, with a Chevy 283 CID engine, Turbo 350 auto trans and Ford 8" rear end, it was not very far along. Some of what had been done had not been done right (such as an improperly-boxed frame). Still, it was the same year and model as the first car Ray had owned, so he was willing to take on the task. As a long-time Roamin Angel and past president of the club, he knew the right people to help him. First it went to Lanmark Auto for some work. Lee’s Metal Works adapted a ‘40 Ford dash. Bob D., Bill B. and John Q. did their magic with the wiring. Bob (SOB) M. helped keep things cool with the air conditioning. Gin’s Little Valley Auto Care and Hopper’s Hot Rod Garage took care of many, many loose ends. Then Van’s Auto Body Shop created a masterpiece of candy tangerine over silver metalflake. Finally Sierra Custom Auto Upholstery fitted the interior in leather comfort. Roamin Angels all. Along the way, the engine and trans were gone through and a Mustang II front suspension with disc brakes was added. After seven years, the Ford was on the road. And it was done with a little help from their friends. Roamin Angel friends.
