Phil Blodgett has owned this '36 Ford cabrio for 12 years, but it has only been finished since March 2006. Doug Leibrant worked with Phil and did most of the buildup, and the goal was to keep it all pre-1960. The top was made from original 1936 material, the wheels are late-'40s-era cast-aluminum Streamlites on Dunlop racing tires, and the paint is old-style nitro-cellulose lacquer. The Flathead was replaced with a '57 Corvette injected 283.
