...From the Mecum auction site (www.mecum.com

Long before the Cadillac Eldorado Brougham and the DeLorean became famous for their use of stainless steel, Ford collaborated with Allegheny Ludlum Steel, early pioneer producers of the material, in building six 1936 Ford deluxe 2-door sedans for use as marketing and promotion vehicles. The jaw-dropping beauty offered here is one of that tiny production run, recently restored by Lon Kruger, one of the world’s best restorers. The car utilizes the standard 221/85 HP flathead mated to a 3-speed manual and working Columbia overdrive, and has been driven just 18 miles since its restoration. The only privately owned example, it won 2 trophies at the Early V8 Club Auburn 2009 event, First Place at the 2009 Hershey AACA event and was nominated for the 2009 AACA Car of the Year.http://www.mecum.com/auctions/lot_detail.cfm?LOT_ID=CA0810-96520&utm_source=delivra&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=CA0810_072610_S90
