World War II for automakers to introduce completely new postwar era
cars. Most had been updates of pre-war cars, and with demand high,
Ford had to respond. Their troubles began during the 1930s, as the
Great Depression and increasing competition had slowed some of the
company's success. Henry Ford's persistence on updating the
antiquated suspension system had been another factor, and as the
war came to an end, the Ford Motor Company emerged in declining
financial health. They turned to designer George Walter, commonly
known as the 'Cellini of Chrome' for a sleek new streamlined design
to take them into the 50's, and the Ford brand was off and running
again. The Custom Deluxe V8 series featured the top trim level for
Ford, including chrome window trim, chrome horn ring, dual sun
visors, armrests on all doors and deluxe chrome trim along the
lower half of the body. Base price of the Custom Deluxe convertible
was $1,950 without options. Power was supplied by Ford's 239
cubic-inch V8 engine that produced 100 horsepower. A manual
three-speed transmission was standard and overdrive was optional.
One of the first truly new offerings from Ford after World War II,
this Custom Deluxe Convertible is one of Ford's iconic vehicles,
and surely will be of interest and value to collectors for
generations to come. Ready for show or touring, it's a car that
will never go out of style.
