For Sale: 1939 Ford Standard in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

This 1939 Ford Standard Coupe loves to turn back the clock. Any work and investments in this car have all been about keeping it feeling like an authentic and strong cruiser. It makes for an irresistibly sleek flathead V8 time machine.

When you find a five-window business coupe, they're usually already turned into a hot rod. After all, these were the moonshiner favorites that were at the bedrock of NASCAR. That was even the initial plan for this one. But then when the owner started to see just how vintage and authentic this one felt, he had a change of heart. And so to find a true classic '39 business coupe is now a rarity. But like us, you can see exactly why this one deserves to be preserved. Ford got the style just right in 1939 with the wind-swept grille, teardrop headlights, and full-length trim that hooked around the front. We're told this is a full southern car, and while there is no paperwork to prove it, the overall condition of the body suggests it has been in good care and the right climate. The black paint is an older respray that strikes the right balance between a good gloss with also the right amount of age/use to make this look like a real cruiser. And with bright chrome bumpers, two-piece wheel covers, rubber-covered running boards, wide whitewalls, and other sharp details, this one remains looking quite attractive.

The tasteful tan interior has a simple classic appeal. The cloth upholstery, smooth wood-style dash, and durable rubber flooring all have an easy cruiser attitude where you know this was refreshed correctly within the last 80+ years of this Ford life thus far. And nothing ever takes away from the vintage style. You have classic Ford gauges, a tall floor shifter, and the classic steering wheel has the kind of grooved feel that puts you in touch with the generations of drivers before you.

Besides the styling, Ford's Flathead is a big reason for this car's desirability. They have a reputation for durability and proper power that have made them a true icon of the early motoring era. So it's nice to see the engine bay given good investment to have this presented so authentically. And the clean and tidy style means you're going to be ready to show it all off. But don't forget that this car's goal is also to be a great cruiser. So you'll see some added details, like a custom aluminum radiator that helps keep this 1930s machine running cool in modern times. The way this fires up and runs smoothly further reaffirms how special this example is. And the floor-shifted three-speed manual transmission gives you full control of this V8 powerhouse.

It's rare to find a '39 Business Coupe looking this vintage anymore, but since this one was just too nice to be a hot rod, we bet you already know it has earned a spot in your garage. Call today!!!
