Ford Hot Rods Featured at Fort Lauderdale Sale – RM Auctions

1936 Ford Street Rod CoupeAmong the over 400 cars set to cross the block during RM’s Collector Cars of Fort Lauderdale auction later this month are some quality examples of hot rods based on the iconic Ford Coupes of the 1930s. Leading these consignments is a 1936 Ford Street Rod Coupe, from the estate of Mr. Bruce Rossmeyer and featured in the September 2008 issue of Street Rodder Magazine.
