Tired of going to all those car shows and looking row after row of
the same rodded Fords? You can almost become lulled to sleep with
the redundancy of it all. Well, fold up your chair, and put those
walking shoes on, because you will have to walk a long way to find
another one like this one.
For consignment, a 1939 version of the Bowtie Master Deluxe in non
rodded original restored condition. She's is a finished project,
but with the design and technology from 1939 all buttoned up and
ready to turn the key to both go and show.
With its lovely design of the front V shaped grille flanked by
bullet style cased headlights and rounded fenders which stand guard
on either side of the pointed and rounded hood, we are firmly in
art deco territory, which was all the rage since the mid 30's and
continued well into the 40's. That grille is presented beautifully
with its horizontal ribs curving to the fenders. A nice Chevrolet
badge is on the front as well. The front bumper frames the bottom
and has stood the test of time retaining its shine and vertical art
deco push bars. At the other end of the Buck Rogers rocket styled
hood ornament is a split front windshield. The doors with well
minded gaps not unlike the rest of the steel body, are bathed in
black which shows as an older respray but retains its shine. Up top
the roof is looking nice and smooth. On the running board sides
which cozy up to rounded front and rear fenders which the rear ones
meet up with the trunk line and form the rounded aero back of this
machine. Small bullet style tail lights are hanging off the sides
of the rear quarters. Just a few faults in the paint throughout and
a snazzy red pinstriped spear runs along the beltline of the car.
Chevrolet badged moon caps highlight black steel wheels and thin
white wall tires.
Nicely preserved mohair panels cover the doors and serve as a
background for the shiny bakelite knobs, levers, and cranks. A
rounded art deco styled front bench covered in more tan mohair and
sporting some buttons and tan piping stretches from door to door.
This bench is very nicely preserved and has a split back for easier
access to the rear bench that has 2 cushions for the seats that are
removable. The dash uses wonderful art deco styling of rectangular
instrumentation with a neat green background. Brown and tan steel
mix to make the shapely dash which is fronted by a bog brown
bakelite steering wheel. A long shift lever topped in two tone
bakelite reaches for the driver's hand. Tan carpeting is noted
throughout along with some dark brown floor covering mats. Above is
a nice mohair tan headliner.
Opening the hood we note a 216.5ci inline 6-cylinder with a
1-barrel carburetor on the side and a gaggle of large horns stuffed
in on the top of the engine. On the back is a 3-speed manual
transmission and a rear axle weighing in with 4.11 ratio.
Steel has a coating of surface rust but is structurally sound. Body
hangers are solid as is framing. Drum brakes are on all 4 corners
and suspension is independent coil springs for the front, and leaf
springs for the back.
This car fires right up and performs beautifully. No problems on
the functionality front, and the interior is comfy in its mohair
All in all a nice older restoration car from an estate where it was
well cared for and not left for dead. A true original showing well
in our Hallowed Halls and standing the test of time.
