Just over a year ago, I sold this 35' Ford Coupe to my friend Ken Harris. I needed money to fund my 50' Suburban, so the Ford had to go down the road (but to a good friend). This car was a 9,000 original mile 35' purchased new in San Francisco, and parked after the war (WWII) in the Lake Tahoe area for over 70 years. When I first got the car, we brought the flathead back to life and it ran great, but the years of sitting meant that everything else would have to be gone through. The car went on to Ken, and Ken wasted no time getting the car apart, re-built, and back together (all while building a 29' Ford roadster, and working a 40+ hour day job). He pulled out the flathead and swapped in a 64' Corvette 327 with a manual trans. Rebuilt all of the running gear, and had it back on the road in a years time, just this last week. He has the car fenderless right now (race style) but plans to run the fenders / running boards soon. Personally, I think it will look better with fenders, but it is growing on me fenderless. Ken says the coupe is fast and only wants to go faster, but he will wait to feel the car out before pushing it.
