1942 Ford Super Deluxe 2 door sedan with a "special story": This car has been in many national cross country road rallies and in the "Great American Race" 6 different coast-to-coast events and always finished, which is a feat in and of it's self. 'Mariah' as the car was aptly named, with its sky blue finish, was featured in a special on the History Channel the year it finished 2nd place overall.
Although it retains its original flathead V8 and column shift 3-speed manual trans, certain enhancements have been made for safety and reliability: Aluminum heavy duty radiator with electric cooling fan, 12-volt electrical conversion, turn signals, seat belts, HD shocks, just to name a few.
Reliability? Along with my son as navigator, I had the opportunity to participate in the 2005 Great Race, from Washington D.C. to Tacoma, Washington, some 4000 miles over 14 days, that is when I first met Mariah. Equipped with a $1500 rally speedometer, this car is ready for competitive events or sheer driving pleasure.
