Eugene Bob Gregorie's natural abilities for timeless design have been duly recognized. While his stint at Ford may seem brief, Gregorie was largely responsible for the practical but modern lines of the Ford. Gregorie worked for Ford from 1935 to 1943 and returned year later for two years; several of these models were influenced by him and still highly regarded. Around 25 years ago this convertible benefited from a repaint; and since then it has been cosmetically updated with new brown upholstery and a tan new convertible top. It is believed that the body has never been separated from the frame and that it retains the original flathead V-8 engine and the column shift manual transmission. Factory options on this Ford include: power top, full fender skirts, bumper mounted driving lights, dual exhaust, driver side spotlight, factory AM radio and an electric clock.
