It is not often that you see a 1942 Ford much less the Businessman
Coupe. Only a limited number of businessman coupes were built. Due
to WWII, Ford halted production of civilian vehicles on February
10, 1942. Any cars subsequently produced were taken away to the
military or government warehouses. Ford produced slightly less than
160,000 cars for 1942 with only 5,411 being Super Deluxe Business
Coupes.The Business Coupe was built for the traveling salesman. As
there was no need for a back seat, the car was built with the doors
the same size as the door of a 4-door sedan. Behind the seat is a
concealed compartment that allowed for just enough room to place
samples or a briefcase. The trunk was much larger so that the
salesman could carry plenty of merchandise.This is an incredible
