1936 Dodge Business Coupe

I bought the car in 2018 from John Fogerty of Shasta Lake.  He bought it in 2010 from a guy in Sacramento, who bought it from a guy in the Bay Area, who told him it was purchased new in San Francisco.

John kept the bloodline pure with a 408 stroker engine, 727 Transmission, and an eight and three-quarter inch rear end – all Mopar. He also installed a Heidts Mustang II front suspension.

We took the car apart and had it chopped 4 inches in the front and 4 1/2 inches in the back. I got some 48 Plymouth rear side windows. They were chopped and installed in the rear, replacing the original rear window. The fenders were widened 2 inches in the rear and custom running boards and fender skirts were added. That took care of most of the Bodywork.

At one point after being in a couple of shops and not getting completed, I almost gave up on the car. It became somewhat of a basket case and I was going to park it in my backyard.

The project was rescued by Danny, from Dorset speed shop.

A lot of the original original work had to be redone at Danny’s Shop. The car was meticulously re-wired, plumbed and re-assembled! Inside and underneath the car looks better than the outside and runs great!

The car was painted by Pedro and Upholstery by Paco, stereo by Elevated Audio. Favorite car I’ve ever owned. I drive it all the time. Thanks again guys.
