1936 Ford Convertible

Owned for over 50 years, we were tasked with getting this little Ford back on the road.  Previously done 5 decades ago was a '41 Flathead swap, and hydraulic brakes of the same era.  This flathead has been testing us well, trying to get the cooling system overhauled and the block cleared without having to rebuild the motor.
