'36 Ford 3 Window


From Tin Man Fabrication, Inc.

This is a 1936 Ford 3 window coupe. The customer brought it to Tin Man with the floors already installed and lots of metal work needing to be repaired. We installed a big block firewall as you see. A two inch chop was done by Tin Man -- see some of the pictures below.

'36 Ford 3 Window The car must have been in an accident back in the day, this is what we found behind at least two pounds of lead. The A-pillar was nowhere near where it should have been so some repair work was in order before the chop could begin.

'36 Ford 3 Window The A-pillars were cut first in a good location so they would realign nicely when the 2" were removed. The cut in the middle of the roof was made at the seam connecting the front and back half of the roof.

'36 Ford 3 Window The rear section of the roof was removed next. The cut was made throught the middle of the back window then into a good spot in the b-pillar.
'36 Ford 3 Window After the section was removed, we placed the roof back on to determine where the relief cuts had to be made. Also, this is a good time to relocate the body line that runs down the B-pillar.
'36 Ford 3 Window The rear part of the roof was tacked in place, then it was time to realign the drip-edge. We cut out the factory seam to make a clean transition.

Our customer put in the floor boards on his own prior to bringing the car to Tin Man. He deserves the credit for an excellent job. These floors were not welded in, but fastened with Airplane rivets. Very nice job!

The metal work around the edges of the trunk lid were rusty and repaired by Tin Man.
