Pro-built rods come in two flavors: fiberglass and steel. Like muscle cars, the ones that serious collectors choose to own are those made of metal, like this 1936 Ford, which is a real-deal cabriolet built by Ford. Powered by a 350 cubic inch V8 and beautifully finished inside and out, it's a multiple show winner and a look at the details will tell you all you need to know about why.

Steel adds value, and while the fiberglass makers have come a long way, most enthusiasts prefer the Henry Ford original whenever they can get it, so this one features a Henry Ford body that's been smoothed, massaged, and updated for a truly trick look. It's still unmistakably a 1936 Ford, even bathed in that incredible two-tone paint job with trick airbrushed graphics on its flanks. The timeless Art-Deco shape of the '36 Ford never goes out of style, and the details that make this car special include the custom wrap-around grille with matching hood inserts, slick two-piece bumpers, shaved handles and hinges, and exhaust tips neatly integrated into the running boards. Panel gaps are exacting and the doors close with a solid sound that no fiberglass body can match. Dramatic taillights are far more interesting than the usual 1939 repros most rods wear and this is one of those cars that you can look at for hours and still not see all the tricks that went into the build.

Tradition was tossed aside for the interior as well, where the deeply sculpted bucket seats are upholstered in black leather. None of the original hardware remains inside, where a custom twin-cockpit dashboard has been fabricated, neatly leading into the custom-built door panels. The centrally-mounted instrument panel appears to come from a late-model, while the secondary controls for things like the Air Ride suspension, power windows, and ignition have been cleverly hidden in the center console. A powerful AM/FM/CD stereo head unit has been neatly fitted to the center of the dash, and it powers speakers cleverly hidden throughout the interior space. A/C from Vintage Air, a tilt steering column, remote entry, and a power trunk are all part of the package. There's also a lift-off top that gives it a very slick profile when it's in place and the trunk itself is as beautifully finished as the interior, with all the working parts hidden behind the fabricated side panels.

Powering this gorgeous cabrio is a 350 cubic inch GM crate motor backed by a 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission. Clearly built to show off, the potent powerplant packs a punch where it matters, and is easy to service anywhere in the world. There's enough polished aluminum and chrome for a fleet of lesser rods, as well as a beautifully airbrushed graphic on the radiator shroud. Power steering and power 4-wheel disc brakes make it a pleasure to drive, and the A/C uses modern R134a refrigerant, so it's reliable as well as gorgeous. To upgrade the ride to modern standards, a modern independent front suspension was installed, while a narrowed Ford 9-inch rear end packs 3.55 gears. The stainless Magnaflow dual exhaust system sounds wonderful with those side-exits and the whole chassis has been detailed for show to match the bodywork. It rides on polished Billet Specialties "Twister" wheels with 17s in front and 20s in back to give it some rake.

Fully documented with build photos and receipts, this is a cost-no-object rod that's available for a fraction of its build cost. Totally sorted, totally gorgeous, and totally state-of-the-art, if a $100,000 car can be considered a bargain, this is it. Call today!
