For Sale: 1939 Ford Cabriolet in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars Houston showroom is pleased to offer for sale this awesome Concord Purple 1939 Ford Cabriolet. While, according to information from its owner, it does have a Gibbons fiberglass body, its fenders and hood are steel. The grill is from a '40 Ford, and the underpinnings consist of a modified 1st-gen Mustang front end, and a C3 Corvette's IRS out back, so not only does this bad boy have a really cool look to it, it also has 4-wheel independent suspension and 4-wheel power disc brakes! This beast goes (and stops) as nicely as it looks! The removable convertible top is covered in high grade canvas, which looks almost unused. With a power-operated rumble seat out back, you have room for an extra two passengers - for putting the Mayor out back for his parade! Under the hood is a potent small block Chevy engine, displacing 350 cubic inches and hosting a mild performance cam. Topped by an Edelbrock carb and Weiand aluminum intake, and fitted with shorty headers and dual exhaust, this '39 Ford Cabriolet sets the stage for some fun driving. Backing the V8 is a Turbo 350 3-speed automatic transmission, which spins the 3.08 gears in the Corvette rear end. The car sits on BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires, which are nicely staggered (P195/60R15 up front, P225/70R15 out back) and wrap around the aluminum Boyds 5-spoke mags, giving it a classic hot rod stance. The interior features a synthetic leather and tweed motif, with front buckets out of a late '90's Mustang. There is a full set of VDO gauges, including oil pressure, water temperature, speedo, tach, voltmeter, and quartz clock, all sequestered nicely in a gorgeous Wabbits wood dash. Tunes are provided by a Pioneer AM/FM/CD/MP3 head unit in the center console, which also features the switches for the power windows, HVAC controls, and headlight and wiper switches. The LeCarra billet steering wheel sits on a tilt/telescoping steering column, so the driver will find plenty of adjustment capability to get the pilot's environment fitted. You'll have to search high and low to find another '39 Ford Cabriolet with this many features, and you'll probably not be able to find one with such a sweet suspension setup! Additional features and options on this 1939 Ford Cabriolet include Air Conditioning, Aluminum Wheels, AM/FM/CD/MP3 Radio, Cloth with Synthetic Leather seating, Manual (removable) Convertible Top, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Power Windows, Radial Tires, and Seatbelts (for the front passengers).
