RESTORED BACK TO ORIGINAL, SUPER SLICK, FLATHEAD V8, RUMBLE SEAT, MUST SEE!
This is an extremely nice restoration of a prewar classic. It is a shining example of the beautiful streamlined styling that was popular at the time with an interior full of wonderful design features in rich colors and textures. On top of all that, it's the last year Ford built a car with a rumble seat. And who doesn't want to ride around in a rumble seat?
Presented in Feather Gray with a rich, dark brown convertible roof, this car looks stylish regardless if you are rolling top up or top down. Up front, there is a sharp V-shaped hood blending into a chrome grill of vertical bars flanked by teardrop shaped headlights. All the chrome on this car shines like new. There is a bold accent of it running from the split windshield to the grill which is underlined by a thin bumper. There is also a line of chrome running from front to rear along the top body line with a shorter accent line just under it on the hood. Separate fenders curve gracefully around the wheels with skirts adding some extra style at the rear. The upper body curves smoothly over the rumble seat when it is folded down to another simple chrome bumper with a pair of exhaust tips peeking out from under it. But go ahead, fold that rumble seat that marks the end of an era up, and see how young and old will want to jump in for a ride in it.
The interior in a rich variety of browns and has several unique features with an Art Deco design flair. The door panel is a simple but elegant affair with 4 rectangular panels topped by a wood toned top rail. With the door closed, that rail blends nicely into the dash along with the inside windshield trim in the same beautiful wood finish. All the knobs in the dash appear to be original and have an amber color to them that has been earned with age. Two round gauges sit in front of a classic 3-spoke steering wheel. The left gauge has the fuel, oil, and battery indicators along with one very special water temperature gauge that has a fluid, thermometer style indicator. The speedo is on the right, there is a rectangular center section trimmed out with thin chrome piping, and the glove box has a clock mounted into it's door. A gracefully curving shifter for the manual transmission extends from the floor and the split bench seat is very comfortable.
Open the hood and you will see that the quality restoration included the engine and drivetrain too. The engine bay is neat and clean and nicely detailed out with an original and meticulously restored 221 cubic inch Flathead V8 nestled down inside it. Chrome acorn nuts draw attention to those flat heads showing off this classic style of motor and a simple round air cleaner sits on top of a single barrel carb with the generator just below it. Parallel radiator hoses run to the back of the motor and a long air horn sits along the inner fender. Power flows back through a 3-speed manual trans to the rear wheels. The suspension on this car is interesting with a single transverse leaf spring both front and rear located by long arms that converge in the center of the chassis. Hydraulic brakes, an advanced design feature at the time, operate 4-wheel drums. The car rides on wide white wall tires mounted on 16" steel wheels with chrome beauty rings and hub caps.
Come on down and check out this beautifully restored classic. Fold the roof down, that rumble seat up, and see who wants to take a ride.
