Classifind Cut: 1936 Ford Model 68 Woody Wagon – Sold?
March 9, 2021 Update – We just confirmed the listing for this “Classifind” expired, so with no replacement found we’re assuming this ride “Sold?” While this one got away, please reach out either by email or call Rudy directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.
1930s Fords seem to be popping up a lot as of late and our latest example, just posted yesterday, is this 1936 Ford Model 68 Woody Wagon originally listed in January 2021 on Craigslist in Dayton, Ohio features an older restoration and a reported ninety percent of its original wood offered at $43,000 currently. Comparing that price against the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool confirms the consignor has their customer’s Ford priced between this guide’s #4 “Fair” (Daily Driver) estimate of $28,000 and its #3 “Good” appraisal of $49,500.
1936 was the final year of a two-year run of the updated line known as the Model 48 and 68s before another updated design rolled out for 1937. Ford designers updated their cars with an inverted pentagonal grille containing all-vertical bars beneath a prominent hood. The V8 DeLuxe was called the Model 68. A concealed horn, long a prominent part of Ford’s design, also brought the car into modern times. Another major change for 1936 was the launch of pressed steel “artillery” solid wheels that replaced more traditional wire units.
This driver quality appears to present very nicely and will likely be a nice driver you don’t have to be afraid to take out for a drive on nice days. Full disclosure: while we found this car on Craigslist, the consignor is a website specializing in providing private sellers of Street- and Hot Rods a specialized place to list their rides.
Here’s the seller’s brief description:
