For Sale: An outstanding and award-winning 1939 Ford Deluxe Convertible Sedan. I am advised that only 2,861 Convertible Sedans were produced in 1937 with very few remaining today. Restored through the years 1974-1978 with new paint applied in the 1990's, the car remains in near mint condition. A new H&H dressed flathead V/8 has been installed with just 300 miles. Matched to the manual transmission plus a Columbia overdrive, the vehicle performs flawlessly. In addition to the new engine, the car has been upgraded to twelve-volt with a new battery, an alternator and an electric cooling fan for the radiator. The owner of this car was an accomplished auto upholsterer that specialized in genuine leather interiors throughout his career. Being a perfectionist, the interior of this car is magnificent. The custom leather upholstery, door panels and sun visors were masterfully hand-crafted with laser-straight seams and ample padding. The wood-grained dash and door casings was applied by a true artist and clear coated to perfection. The classic Deluxe banjo steering wheel is beautiful. The radio, heater and clock are intact and restored. The car is painted factory Dartmouth Green which was expertly applied, high quality and shows beautifully. The soft convertible and top bows are in excellent condition. The green exterior, tan top and wide white tires makes a very appealing and elegant color combination. The body is super straight. All chrome and stainless remain sparkling and bright. The car sports original fog lights plus NOS running boards. If you are seeking a rare Ford open car that can be displayed, shown and toured, you have located your vehicle. This is an investment quality Ford Deluxe. A renowned automobile Judge recently inspected this car for the owner and placed the value of $85k for the vehicle. A three inch thick folder of receipts for work performed on the car is available and will come with this sale. Please note: The "Igniters Santa Barbara" club placard installed on the rear bumper bracket does not come with this sale. Please make sure you click on the video tab on the top of the page.
