  1. Paul E. Grech

    My name is Paul E. Grech. I am 76 years old. here is my 1936 ford truck story. My father bought this truck in 1955for $75.00. He was able to restore for $2000.00 in 1955. He got a body man to work on it for 6 weeks for $65.00. He gave it to me in 1959. I put a 1955 olds motor in it and drove it for 4 years. I also added a 1941cadillac transmission and a 9 inch ford rear end to make it reliable. I sold it to my sister in 1964. I bought it back in 2003 for $1500.00. This time I spent $150,000 on it. I ended up with a the whole power train out of a 2003 Mustang Cobra in it. Super charged 4.6 liter motor, six speed tremac transmission and independent rear suspension and a new TCI frame. It is a beast and is totally comfortable to ride in. It has power steering, brakes and a $2400.00 radio killer radio in it. It doesn’t burn rubber unless I want it to. It is like a Porsche it sticks and goes. The steeper the hill the better it likes it. All of that and 35 miles to the gallon. The license plate says AFAS all ford all steel. It is so quiet at a light you would swear if had a flathead in it. So far I have driven it a 150,000 miles it is that comfortable to drive. I kept the body just like my father had it. No chop, no lowered Barden bumper in back. It will do 65 in low gear. 90 in second gear and due to the air resistance 140 top end. It has power steering and brakes. It is jet black. My father put a 1935 Packard dashboard in it. He paid $10.00 for the dash in 1955. I paid $4000.00 to get restored in is now 15 years it has been on the road and the insurance company still lets me insure it for $140,000.00.
