Description
 
We are saddened by the loss of Dick Kraft on January 16, 2009. The Hot Rod community has lost one of its true pioneers! Our condolences go out to his entire family. You are looking at a documented piece of American automobile history that was featured in Hop Up magazine. This 1939 Ford Convertible Sedan was originally built by Hotrod Hall of Fame builder, Dick Kraft between 1945 and 1948 in California. It was restored and currently owned by Sid Cruce who built the 36 Ford Roadster that sold from the Wayne Davis collection for $159,500.00. It ran at El Mirage dry lakes in 1947. It did the measured quarter mile at 112.52 mph. The car was frame off restored in 2003 and is painted the original Mexicali Maroon. The non removable top was made by the original Carson company in 1948 and was recovered in 2003. The front and rear bumpers are off a 1937 Desoto. And the rear taillights are from a 1941 Studebaker. The front headlights are original 39 Ford equipped with Halogen lamps. The hood has been louvered and looks great. The beautiful interior is done in a roll/pleat fashion using Oxblood and Tan leather. With Daytona weave carpeting, the interior is a thing of beauty. Even the door panels and headliner are done in the same high quality leather. It has all new tinted glass and new weather-stripping throughout. The steering wheel is original and in great condition. It has the original headlight switch horn button that still functions properly. A set of new old stock gauges compliments the dash board. And the glove box has been signed by Dick Kraft. This car is powered by a 286 cubic inch Flathead V8. The motor has an Eske cam, Ross pistons, adjustable lifters, 3 5/16 bore, 4 inch stroke, a Mercury crank shaft and Offenhauser heads with light port & relieve. The intake is by Thickson equipped 2-2 barrel Ford carburetors. It is topped off with a very cool Thickson air breather. The motor is backed up with a 3 speed manual transmission and the original banjo rear end with 3:54 gears. The undercarriage is very clean and solid. It features a 3 inch drop axle with reverse eye leaf springs up front and in the rear. Rebuilt drum brakes provide all the stopping power needed. And the dual exhaust runs aall the way out the rear and sounds great. The car won the Timeless Street Rod award at the Goodguys Lonestar Nationals in 2006 and has appeared in various magazines over its lifetime. It comes with a complete documented history and would be a fine additional to any serious collection. This timeless historic classic is a great investment! Serious Inquiries, please call for price. (682) 429-1010 (will consider trades-preferably roadster, cabriolet, convertible Ford or Mercury)
