For Sale: 1939 Ford Business Coupe in Mesa, Arizona


Vehicle Description

This 1939 Business Coupe is an attractive classic with a hot flathead V8 under the hood. It makes for a sleek icon with a hint of outlaw fun.

The business coupes like this were always a moonshiner favorite. After all, the big trunks were ready to carry the best in outlaw liquor. And so these were all about looking inconspicuously stock to hide the true performance within. That's why this one was restored to just look like a crisp and clean classic. Good body lines, even gaps, and rubber-top running boards have a true pre-war style. It's all wrapped in a glossy blue with the right hint of age to make this business coupe as respectable as a business suit. You'll even love the little details that make it a true classic, like the teardrop headlights, artfully long fenders, two-piece wheel trim, and proudly pointed grille with Ford V8 logo.

The blue interior has a simple classic appeal. You can see there have been more recent investments in places like the upholstery, door panels, and carpeting to keep this feeling good. But nothing ever takes away from the vintage style. You have classic Ford gauges, a tall floor shifter, and the banjo-style steering wheel is worn in so you can feel the generations before you. There's even a hidden liquor compartment under the seat that really lets you in on this car's full nature.

Just like the interior and the exterior, the engine bay is quite vintage... but that's not the whole story. This really feels like a moonshiner's coupe thanks to some key upgrades. You have a classic flathead V8, but it's the more powerful Mercury version. And this is topped with dual Stromberg carbs mounted on an Offenhauser intake. It makes for a hotter V8 that also makes a nice tune out of the glasspack-style dual exhaust. And when it's time to outrun Johnny Law, you take proper control over this V8 power thanks to the three-speed manual transmission. And as much as this is made for classic fun, you'll also appreciate a few well-placed upgrades, like a 12-volt electrical system that includes an alternator and Optima red top battery.

It's hard to resist the bad boy. So you know you need to stash this outlaw in your garage. Call today!!!
