Subject: 1936 Stainless Steel Ford
This is the 1936 Ford  built for and owned by Allegheny Ludlum
Steel.  It was attending our open house and then was featured
 in a 
local parade with over 100 of our salaried, hourly and
retired employees walking alongside. This is 1 of only
4 in existence and is the only one currently in running
 & in roadworthy condition. The car is in exceptional
condition, with the interior and even the frame
looking great.
All 4 cars each had over 200,000 miles on them before
 they removed them
From service. These cars were built for Allegheny as
 promotional and marketing Projects. The top salesmen
 each year were given the honor of being able to drive
 them for one year. The v-8 engine (max 85 hp) ran
like a sewing machine and was surprisingly smooth
and quite. I thought this was a much better looking
automobile than the Ford Thunderbird that visited
us last year.
FYI, the car was insured (we were told) for the trip
to Louisville via covered trailer for 1.5 million dollars.
We were also told that the dies were ruined by
stamping the stainless Car parts, making these
the last of these cars ever produced.
More information of the history on these
automobiles can be found at
