Joe Floyd tells a story about 1936 and Henry Ford's determination to put an end to the Great Depression. Joe donated his collection of 1936 Fords and built Floyd Motors It's 1936 and families are in need of a new car Floyd Motors is the place to go Henry & Edsel Ford are seen just outside the picture window When you enter, you're greeted by a brand new 1936 Roadster

Beyond the desk, all the Ford models for 1936 are on display on the showroom floor. Brochures on the desk are open, ready for you to see what's new for '36 Among the Fords for 1936 is this very rare 1936 Glaser from Germany... ...and this equally rare Two-Purpose Sedan Delivery. Ford made them for National Cash Register and others to deliver goods where trucks weren't allowed, as well as haul the family in it when the removable seat is installed A salesman making a deal with a customer. We wonder if the customer is buying the black 3-Window coupe or maroon Fordor Sedan? A family of five tired of the depression and anxious to travel with the kids
