After the war, Ford was caught flat-footed when word came that
Chrysler was planning a new line of wood-bodied cars based on its
pre-war Town and Country. With no time to design a car from
scratch, Henry Ford II asked Ford designer E.T. "Bob" Gregorie to
engineer a wood-bodied car based on the existing Ford lineup to fit
between its convertibles and woodie station wagons.
Offered here for your consideration is this very handsome 1947 Ford
Super Deluxe 2-Door Sportsman Convertible. Offered out of an
estate, this example was owned by the owner since 1965. It has
undergone a restoration over the years. The body is in excellent
condition, both the wood and the Pheasant red paint show very well.
The Dark Saddle interior is neat and tidy throughout and shows
well. It is powered by what is believed to be the original and
rebuilt 239 CID flathead V8 paired with a 3-speed manual
transmission. The power top is in excellent condition, however at
this time it is not functional. The bumpers are in very good
condition and have been re-plated. The car has whitewall tires,
spotlight fog lights, clock, front bumper guard, Ford heater.
Among the most desirable of early post-war Fords, the Sportsman is
a piece of Americana, a rolling symbol of post-war optimism.
