My interest in antique autos continued, I wanted to have an early V-8 Ford and heard about an original Ford 1936 four door for sale in Fort Worth. I went over there and could not find it. I went up and down north main in Fort Worth, asking about the car at every used car lot, etc. No one had seen it until one place a man, who was wiping down the used cars, came over to me and said he had seen it and a man a few blocks away had it. He described the house but did not know the address.
I went over there and at the third house I hit pay dirt. Mr. Harris said yes he had a 36 and he would sell it. We went down to the garage where he opened the door and there sat a perfect original 1936 4-door deluxe sedan. There was a metal sign on the back license that said "Remember Pearl Harbor”. He started it and it fired off right away and sounded great. Even the old tube radio worked fine. The body was without a dent. We went back upstairs and sat at their breakfast table and negotiated price and talked from about 11 AM until about 3 PM. We finally struck a deal. I paid him $85 for the car and he gave me the title. Charlotte drove me over the next day, and I drove my prize back home.
