The iconic lines, glossy paint, sharp interior, and flathead V8 are
all part of what makes this 1939 Ford 5 Window Coupe such a
stand-out pre-war vintage. And as you dig into the details, you can
see the extra time and effort to make sure this remains a true
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 you'll find most of them turned into hot rods and
full custom builds. Sure, we love those, but it also means we pay a
little more attention when someone takes the time and care to give
us a well-presented stock example. The pre-war sheet metal
continues to have solid lines that look terrific, and the glossy
black paint draws added attention to the curves of the fenders and
silhouette. It makes for an impressive style that's also just right
for still taking down your favorite country two-lane. There are
beautiful vintage details, like the radiant chrome bumpers,
detailed two-piece wheel trim, full-length side trim, and
fresh/bright wide whitewalls. It's a proudly sophisticated coupe.
So they even gave you a few premium custom details, like the padded
running boards and the bold full-length red pinstripes. It doesn't
take away from the vintage experience, but it does show there's
extra care in this classic.
The interior takes the appeal of vintage motoring up a notch. The
light gray has a tasteful style, especially with the detailed
seatbacks, pleated parcel shelf, and comfy velour seat inserts. The
door panels match the seat and even the foot pads on the carpeting
coordinate. Just like the exterior upgrades, this doesn't take away
from the vintage feeling. In fact, it just makes the classic car
experience more inviting. Plus, this has all the best classic
pieces, including the wood-like tone of the dash, banjo-style
steering wheel, floor shifter, two-piece windshield, and an art
deco style to the gauges.
The ultra-clean engine bay gives you a clear view of the 221
flathead V8. You're going to love showcasing this everywhere you
park because the tidy style and bold copper block are part of this
car's vintage appeal. Good wires, good hoses, and a newer carb are
part of a well-maintained package. It fires up nicely and runs with
that hypnotic V8 tune. And the three-speed manual transmission
gives you full control of this powerhouse.
This is the Ford with a cool legacy that is rare to see in such a
vintage form. So if you love a true classic, don't miss this coupe.
