Ed Park's 1936 Ford Convertible of Marshall, Missouri. Ed's '36 was originally restyled by Red Swanson of Portland, Oregon in 1944. R.I. Steere of Tacoma, Washington continued restyling it in the early 1950s. Ed bought the car in 1959. After buying it, he parked it in his parent's chicken house until 1977. Ed moved to Anchorage, Alaska in 1973, and he shipped the car to Anchorage in 1977 so he could start restoring it. The restoration was completed in 1983.
