It is time to fall in love with Yellow Rose. This 1936 Ford Phaeton was built out of love for this classic design and the desire for performance with elegance.
The designer started with a solid metal phaeton body and mated her with a TCI frame, which included a solid Curry 9 inch positraction axle, rack and pinion steering, and power disc/drum brakes, along with all-new steering and suspension components. The 304CID Ford flathead V8 is equipped with an Offenhauser intake, twin Offenhauser carburetors, and Offenhauser heads. The Ford three-speed automatic transmission makes cruising in traffic a breeze. The updated suspension and steering are enhanced even more by the radial tires mounted on Dayton wire wheels. Thanks to an upgraded radiator and auxiliary fan, she can keep her cool too.
No expense was spared on the leather interior with brown hides that feel rich to the touch. The carpet blends in nicely as do the seatbelts for four. The tan phaeton top rides handsomely atop the rear beltline unless extended to create a roof to cover the passengers. The Stewart Warner gauges are finished with gold rings but our favorite feature on the interior is the elegant push-button shift knob which part is your favorite? Perhaps the tilt wheel?
The metal body is dressed in Springtime Yellow paint which has a subtle sheen about it that comes alive in certain light something wonderful that can best be seen in person. The brightwork is brilliant and the body lines flow smoothly. Do not miss the hood ornament, notice the ribs of the hound, she is a rare original not a reproduction. Like the top side, the underside is finished for show. The windshield tilts out as it should and the cowl vent opens properly.
So much attention to detail was taken in the restoration that you really have to see her to catch it all. While you are here, make sure to include some time to browse the photo book of the restoration and the binder full of organized receipts and documentation. The test drive is not to be missed either. Call ahead and we will book a hotel room for you, so you can take your time while you are falling in love
