Royce Glader's 1936 Ford

Royce Glader's 1936 Ford

Royce Glader's stunning '36 Ford roadster is nothing short of stylish subtlety. The 1936 Fords were an exercise in form and function when they rolled off of the assembly line and have been fodder for customizers ever since. Royce's ride is no exception.
Royce bought this roadster in 1996 and has been changing it ever since he got it home. It was an "in-progress" driver for years until he decided to take it to the next level. Well, maybe more like ten levels higher.
