1936 Stainless Steel Ford - Coffee Break - 03-18-2011 12:20 PM

The following photos are of a 1936 Ford Tudor sedan built for Allegheny Ludlum Steel in 1936.

This is one of only four of these cars in existence and is the only one still running and roadworthy.

This car is in exceptional condition. All four cars had gone over 200,000 miles before they were removed from service.

These cars were built for Allegheny Steel as promotional and marketing projects.

Each year, the top salesmen were given the honor of driving them for one year.

The 85 hp V-8 engine was surprisingly smooth and quiet.

The car was insured for $1.5 million for the trip to the Louisville show.

The dies used to manufacture the body panels were ruined by stamping the stainless steel, so no more of these cars will ever be produced.
