Take a look at this GORGEOUS !! - EXTREMELY RARE !! - FRAME OFF RESTORED !! - PAMPERED 1942 Ford Super Deluxe Convertible! I say EXTREMELY RARE as they only built 2,920 Super Deluxe Convertibles in 1942, the LAST and BEST year of Pre-War production !! Ford halted production on February 10, 1942 to begin production of B-24 Liberator bomber aircraft, but not before a very short run of 1942 passenger cars and trucks were built. You can now own a GORGEOUS - RESTORED Classic that is getting very hard to find, especially in this condition !! Tens of thousands of dollars and many, many hours have been spent on the meticulous nut and bolt restoration of this BEAUTY !! We have been asked to sell this Super Deluxe by the family who is handling the estate of the local Idaho owner who recently passed away. He was an active member in the Early Ford V8 Club and as you can tell it was his pride and joy for sure !! This is a NICE - DRY - SOLID - Idaho High Mountain Desert - Western car and it shows ! I drove this car as my daily driver for the last several days and it runs and drives VERY WELL! This Super Deluxe is a sweet driver in town and cruises down the freeway at 55+ mph easily and smoothly. If you can make it to Boise please come take a look at and drive this BEAUTY for yourself. This is a QUALITY CLASSIC CAR THAT IS READY TO DRIVE, SHOW AND ENJOY!
At the heart of this RARE BEAUTY is what appears to be the STRONG !! - ORIGINAL - REBUILT - 221 CID Flathead V8 motor that is running VERY well indeed. The motor also still retains it's ORIGINAL Style "59A-B" heads, ORIGINAL intake manifold, ORIGINAL exhaust manifolds, ORIGINAL "Oil Bath" air cleaner housing, ORIGINAL Style Carburetor and the ORIGINAL Style engine coolant hoses. Sounds GREAT too with the NEW factory style exhaust system. The engine is backed by a SMOOTH - REBUILT - Three speed - column shift manual transmission that also functions very well !! The BEAUTIFUL !! - NEW Saddle Tan Super Deluxe interior is in VERY NICE !! condition including a VERY NICE NEW Saddle Tan Vinyl front seat, VERY NICE NEW Matching Saddle Tan Vinyl door panels, VERY NICE NEW Tan carpeting, VERY NICE ORIGINAL Ford steering wheel, VERY NICE ORIGINAL Factory Gauge clusters, VERY NICE NEW Faux' Wood grain dash and a VERY NICE NEW Saddle Tan Vinyl rear seat !! The BEAUTIFUL - NEW Dark Blue Cloth convertible top is also in VERY NICE condition and comes with a correct glass rear window. All of the black rubber weatherstripping is soft, supple & in NEW condition. The GORGEOUS "Niles Blue" exterior finish is EYE POPPING BEAUTIFUL !! showing only a few very small chips and imperfections that have been touched up and is still bright and shiny and looks STUNNING !! as you can clearly see in the VIDEO & 100 ADDITIONAL PICTURES! Niles Blue exterior with a BEAUTIFUL Saddle Tan Vinyl interior is a GREAT color combination indeed, how could it get any better on a 1942 Ford Super Deluxe Convertible ?! This Super Deluxe also comes nicely equipped including factory power wipers, factory pop-up front air vent, factory manual choke and throttle knobs, factory "bolt lock" locking steering column, original heater and defroster, original chrome rear view mirror, factory gauge clusters with 100 MPH speedometer (the fuel gauge has quit working), original clock which is no longer working, good glass, original driver's side view exterior mirror, original Ford AM radio which is no longer working, working front and rear turn signal indicators and an electric auxiliary fuel pump. There are not many of these BEAUTIES left on the roads for sure! The suspension and drive line all seem to be in good working order as well as the electrical system. All of the ORIGINAL Chrome and Stainless Steel exterior body trim and moldings are in VERY NICE condition including VERY NICE ORIGINAL Chrome front and rear bumpers, VERY NICE ORIGINAL Chrome front and rear bumper guards, VERY NICE ORIGINAL badging and a VERY NICE ORIGINAL chrome front grill and headlight surrounds. Take a look at the AWESOME ORIGINAL Matching Steel wheels with correct Ford chrome center caps and stainless steel beauty rings wrapped in NEARLY NEW CORRECT Coker wide whitewall bias ply tires, boy does this combination look OUTSTANDING on this Super Deluxe and really give it that CLEAN - "Factory Original" look !! The Clean - Solid trunk also sports a VERY NICE ORIGINAL Black rubber liner and a full size wide whitewall spare tire. All of the ORIGINAL light lenses & reflectors are clear, bright, UNCRACKED and BEAUTIFUL! This Super Deluxe is a good investment opportunity and it is priced right! This vehicle is in nice mechanical condition and it runs and drives very well. I looked underneath and also included photos. In my opinion, you're not going to find much nicer ORIGINAL floors than the one's on this BEAUTY !!
