Ford hit a home run with the Model T and A and how those simple
cars revolutionized the automotive world. Giving inexpensive and
proven performance to the masses to get to their destination with
ease and much quicker. Into the mid 30's the cars started to take
on a more upscale role and offer more creature comforts for the
passengers and drivers.
This stunning Ford 68 Deluxe Fordor is a remarkable example of how cool these cars were back in the day and how simplicity sometimes added more to the car than you could imagine. Simple looks of the suicide doors that make this sedan into a sexy vehicle are the little things you never see in today's cars. Style and function were at the top priority of production and this car is a wonderful example of the 30's era automobiles. This vehicle was restored about 6 years ago according to the previous owner and was painstaking brought back to the original setup as close as possible. Little things like the double adjusting front windows that first move back to give you the smokers vent and then as you continue to turn the crank it lowers into place. The tilt out front windshield to give you that extra ventilation on those hot days, the clock in the rear view mirror that is wound by a pulling the cord (works perfectly), the rear foot rests for the rear seats to give you the extra comfort on the long rides, rear window shade to give you some privacy and keep the car cooler in the hot sun, rear mounted spare tire, the porcelain shift knob that has just enough character but blends well with the car, and the banjo style steering wheel that has the horn and headlights all integrated into the wheel for function and style.
This car fires up with ease, the choke works perfect and the all lights, horn and clock work as new. This car is completed with proper features and setup and the cool thin green pinstripe sets this car apart from any other competitor. This car will holds its value without any problem and may even see a nice upside as the market continues to sky rocket on pre-war automobiles!
