Los Angeles Broadcasting Pioneer Art Astor was a man known for many things. A dedicated businessman, loving father and grandfather and first rate soldier, Art was also known for his incredible devotion to the automobile.
Russo and Steele is proud to present in Monterey, California the last remaining automobiles in Art Astor’s legendary collection. The Devotion Collection features the cars truly closest to Art’s heart. These fourteen remaining offerings are vehicles that Art felt so passionately about that he kept them the closest to him, through the end of his life and include prime examples of Pre and Post War American Classics, American Luxury Cars and European Sports Cars.
The look for the 1936 Ford was updated with an inverted pentagonal grille with all-vertical bars beneath a prominent hood and three horizontal chrome side strips. A concealed horn, long a prominent part of the Ford’s design, also brought the car into modern times. Other major changes for 1936 were the use of pressed steel “artillery” solid wheels instead of wire wheels. The Convertible Sedan has the new integrated trunk back design. This triple-tan Convertible Sedan offers V8 performance from an engine that is properly detailed. It is clean and tidy with no leaks or fluid leaks evident. The tan top is in good order as is the tan fabric interior. The paint work, while older, is almost flawless and complements the car. it is set-off with white wall tires. It starts easily and runs smoothly.
