Stainless Steel 1936 Ford

This is the 1936 Ford Tudor Sedan built for and owned by Allegheny Ludlum Steel.

This is 1 of only 4 in existence and is the only one currently running and in roadworthy condition. The frame of the car and it's interior is in exceptional condition. All 4 cars each had traveled over 200,000 miles before they were removed from service.

The cars were built for Alleghany as promotional and marketing projects. The top salesmen each year were given the honour of being able to drive them for one year.

The V-8 engine (max. 85hp) ran like a sewing machine and was surprisingly smooth and quite.

Apparently, the dies were ruined by stamping the stainless car making this the last of these cars ever produced.
