Description
 
No Rust, Solid, solid, solid! Did I happen to mention that this sweetie is as solid as they come? This 1947 Ford Super Deluxe 8 Convertible has been with the same owner for 60 years and only has 23,929 Original miles!! This beauty was sold because the owner has Parkinson's disease and can not finish restoring the car. I was told by his son that the dad purchased the car in 1952 in North Carolina at a Sheriff's sale where it had been impounded for running Moonshine.

It is under restoration. We are having it painted yellow now and have had the seats upholstered in red and white leather. Check back for updated pictures!! She has an updated flat-head V8 engine with modern type distributor and Edelbrock fined aluminum heads with the original 3 speed manual transmission. The Flathead engine runs GREAT. There are a lot of new parts and a lot of extra parts with her!!

NEW PARTS include hub caps, trim rings, wiring harness, weatherstripping, header bow, door sill weatherstripping, running boards, Bob Drake outside mirrors, Bob Drake rear fender splash shields (rubber), along with a pair of stainless splash shields and newly replated bumpers and bumper guards. Some options include spot light, fender skirts, front bumper grill guard, heater, and radio. I have inventoried the parts that I have stored in a large storage container and, as far as I can tell, this baby is more than 99% complete. I have only found a couple of missing pieces of hood and trunk chrome and I have purchased part of them.

There were only 22,159 of these built and the base cost before adding options was $1,740. The only 47 fords that cost more were the Woodie wagons and the Sportsman convertible.

She was originally Yellow however, the owner was going to paint her black. I like the Yellow myself with red interior. Wouldn't that be beautiful? She is going to be a great looking car!! Ford had a major body style change from 1940 to 1941. Again there was significant change to the front end in 1942 which was a very limited production year because of the war. In 1946, when Ford started back producing cars after the war, there was very little change and the 1947 and 1948 cars had identical sheetmetal. There were minor changes in the chrome in the 3 years after the war. Don't let this Beauty get away. I will consider a serious offer or an interesting trade. Give me a call so we can talk about how we can make my car yours.

Believe it or not, you can own this piece of automotive history for only $25,000 or would consider an interesting trade. Let’s talk!!!

Give me a call, let's talk!!! I sure would love to make this Classic yours, what can I do to make that happen? If this Classic is the car of your dreams, then the best time to buy it is before someone else does, NOW is the time.
