PRICED TO MOVE STREETROD, 383 STROKER V8, AUTO, PWR FRNT DISC/STEER/PW, A/C!!
There is a good argument to be made that this 1936 Dodge sedan was one of the better designs of the mid-1930s. Sleek yet imposing, this incredible resto-mod embodies all that is great about Mopars, yesterday and today: big power, fantastic luxury, and impeccable style.
This Dodge's sheetmetal is as it was in 1936, which only goes to show you that the original designers' vision is pretty hard to beat. From the waterfall grille to the flowing fenders to the nicely integrated trunk, this car looks right from any angle. Dressed in PPG Fast Red paint, it certainly looks the part of a high-speed super sedan and the shiny finish on this car doesn't disappoint. It was built to make cruising effortless while retaining all that is great about the late-30s styling, and most of the bright trim was retained, including the distinctive grille. Fortunately, the Dodge's proportions are exactly right and they didn't try to stuff wide modern radials into the fender wells. The paint shows quite well and there are only a few signs of being driven, and all the chrome was refinished when the car was built. Take a moment to enjoy the wonderfully simple bumpers, the nicely integrated hood vents, and the simple strip of stainless that highlights the car's profile. There's not a single line out of place and no excessive brightwork to distract you from the overall look.
The interior is simply spectacular. Lifted almost completely intact from a late-model, it shows a craftsman's touch and an eye for detail that's entirely appropriate in a big luxurious sedan like this. All the seating surfaces are leather, with buckets up front and custom door panels to match. A tilt column mean it's all-day comfortable and with options like power windows, A/C, and a powerful AM/FM/CD stereo system, this is a car that will carry you and your family cross-country in style and comfort. The original dash has been completely remodeled, with Dakota Digital instruments in a custom aluminum panel. A custom lower dash panel houses the A/C controls and vents, while the stereo lives in an overhead console. The fully upholstered trunk is big enough for all your gear on a long trip, making this a no-compromises hot rod.
There's plenty of horsepower on tap thanks to a 383 cubic inch Chevy stroker motor that's all about torque. Topped by a Holley 4-barrel carburetor and a GM high rise intake, plus a set of aluminum heads, it cranks out more than 400 horsepower. In addition to the hardware, there's a bunch of shiny aluminum dress-up to make it worthwhile to open the hood. The engineering involved means it runs cool, idles smoothly, and all the accessories are easy to reach for service. The modern A/C uses R134a refrigerant for reliability and a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission gives it long legs on the highway even with punchy 3.73 gears in back. A Mustang II front clip gives it an independent suspension, power disc brakes, and power steering, while out back there are modern tube shocks and leaf springs for the 9-inch Ford rear end. Flashy aluminum wire wheels look right on the old iron and carry 205/75/14 front and 255/75/15 rear blackwall radials.
Quite well built and very tasteful, this big Dodge sets the bar high and clears it easily. If you have a family, few rods will carry them better than this '36 Dodge. Call today!
