This super cool 1939 Ford Coupe is for sale in our Louisville Showroom. The Hot Rodding culture explodes after WWII ended. Serviceman returned home and factories which supported the war effort were resuming their normal activities. Older vehicles that survived were now being refurbished into something that reflected more of the Individual's personality. In some cases, it consisted of a wild pant job, sometimes an upgrade to the interior, maybe the body was altered with a chopped top or a hot new engine replaced the factory original in order to gain more performance. In many cases, all these things happened for a truly one of a kind vehicle. This '39 Ford Coupe fits this description well. With a Chopped top, a lowered stance, chrome bumpers removed and flush mounted door handles, this old hot now has a much sleeker look. The body has been painted in a deep gloss black that accents the curves of this beautiful body. Pin Striping has been kept to a minimum, but check out the trim molding. Yup, it's a painted graphic, and it looks pretty neat. The interior was redone in leather a while back, giving the inside a nice cozy feel when driving or riding along for Cruise Night. The '39 Coupe has AC (some service will be needed), so cruising on a Hot Summer night you can keep cool, while looking cool. Many times when the engine is replaced with a more modern powerful unit, the brand is changed due to cost and availability of speed parts. Typically old Ford Hot Rods tend to have Chevrolet engines for this very reason. If you are a true Die Hard Blue Oval fan, then you'll be pleasantly surprised a 351W Ford V8 under the hood. With only 2186 miles on this '39 Ford's current configuration, there will be plenty of memories to still be made. Options for this 1939 Ford Coupe include; Air Conditioning, Cruise Control, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Power Seats, Power Windows, Tilt Steering Wheel and Steel Wheels with Hub Caps wrapped in radial tires.
