1942 Ford Model 21A Super Deluxe 2 Door Coupe
Due to the United States entering World War II in December 1941, civilian automobile production ceased in January 1942. The short production run makes all 1942 models extremely rare. Ford produced only 43,407 for the 1942 model (down from 600,000 in 1941). 1942 was the only year Ford featured the distinctive “electric shaver” grille.
This running and driving piece of history features a 221 cu in Flathead V-8 engine, 97 HP, dual exhaust, 3-speed manual transmission, front and rear drum brakes, 3.78 ratio rear axle, factory grille, factory gauges, AM radio, and lots of chrome.
