1936 Ford Model 68

The 1936 Fords, in most respects, were a continuation of the best-selling 1935 models, with a number of appearance changes that made them seem almost completely new. The 1936 Fords were given a front-end restyle by Holden 'Bob' Koto, of Briggs Manufacturing Company. Koto enjoyed a career that spanned nearly four decades, later helped Dick Caleal model the 1949 Ford, and worked for Raymond Loewy on the 1953 Studebaker.

During the 1930s, market preference continued to shift toward closed bodies. Some manufacturers continued to offer open models while some canceled them entirely. Ford, however, continued to offer a wide range of open cars in its catalog. All were available only with Deluxe trim, and the models included a roadster, phaeton, two cabriolets, and two convertible sedans. Total soft-top production at Chevrolet and Plymouth failed to reach 8,000 combined. Ford, meanwhile, managed nearly 20,000 open cars. 5,601 of those were the four-door convertible sedan.
