1936 Stainless Steel Ford
Nov 11, 2008

This is the 1936 Ford Coupe built for and owned by Allegheny Ludlum Steel.
It was attending our open house and then was featured in a local parade with
over 100 of our salaried, hourly and retired employees walking alongside.
This is 1 of only 4 in existence and is the only one currently in running and in roadworthy condition.
The car is in exceptional condition, with the interior and even the frame looking great.
All 4 cars each had over 200,000 miles on them before they removed them from service.
These cars were built for Allegheny as promotional and marketing projects.
The top salesmen each year were given the honor of being able to drive them for one year.
The v-8 engine (max 85 hp) ran like a sewing machine and was surprisingly smooth and quite.
FYI, the car was insured (we were told) for the trip to Louisville via covered trailer for 1.5 million dollars.
We were also told that the dies were ruined by stamping the stainless car parts, making these the last of these cars ever produced.
More information of the history on these and other Stainless Steel automobiles can be found at Allegheny Ludlum's website

The first picture depicts a '48 or '49 COE Ford, probably a F-5 or above model given the dual wheels in the rear. It is hauling what is *probably* either '48 or '49 trucks because I can see that the bed stake pockets on the top forward truck has a curvature in it ('50 trucks look identical to '48 and '49 except they phased in a new bed in '50 that had straight bed pockets for that year, depending on which plant the truck was built at). The top forward truck is either an F-2 (3/4 ton) or an F-3 (1 ton) because of the lack of hubcaps and the longer bed, the top back truck is an F-1 (1/2 ton).
The 6th picture shows a 1952 COE Ford truck (probably another F-5), you can see the letters F O R D spelled out below where the hood latches.
Picture 15 shows a 1951 COE truck that would have been built in the first half of the year as it appears to have a silver grill. Korean war metal restrictions caused them to have to switch to painted grills halfway through production that year.
If a truck back then had an AM radio or a heater it was because they installed it at the dealer, none were shipped as such from the factory (at least on the Fords).
