Ford starting making the Super Deluxe model before the war starting in 1941. Its production was short lived due to the war but Ford restarted again in 1946. The newer models were essentially the pre-war model except with a few minor upgrades like a slightly bigger engine and a revised grill. Before Henry Ford passed away in 1947 he said that cars were selling at such a high rate that only minor changes were needed in their models from year to year. This Super Deluxe is in amazing condition. It has an old school exterior color which fit the 1940's perfectly. The convertible top is in excellent condition and still works as it was designed.
