1936 Ford Coupe Care

What is the best way to maintain the interior and exterior of a 1936 Ford coupe?

The exterior has a black laquer finish.

The interior is the original mohair upholstery.

Thank you,


Keep the exterior waxed with a top flight product. I’m not sure if newer blends will damage the finish, but higher percentages of Carnauba wax are a good thing. Keeping the car waxed will reduce the aging effects of UV light and the weather.

Best thing you can do is keep it in a garage. Exposure to sunlight will not be good for the mohair.

You may want to get yourself a copy of Hemmings Motor News. It will have lots of information about caring for an old car.
