DEEP BLUE, STEEL BODY DELUXE, FULL RESTO, CRATE 350, TH350, MUSTANG II CLIP, A/C
Is this a great-looking car or what? The 1939 Ford Deluxe remains one of the timeless classics of hot-rodding, and this sleek and subtle tudor sedan offers all the creature comforts with a very appealing look. A rod that can do it all makes having fun in an old car easy.
The build was completed in the early 2000s, but thanks to careful maintenance, it still looks fantastic. Sure, it's got a few signs of use, but when this car rolls in, people tend to notice. Part of that is, of course, the stunning good looks of the Ford design, but it's also due to the fact that the vivid dark blue paint is such a strong contrast to all the brightly colored hot rods you see at every show. No graphics, no excessive pinstripes, just Henry Ford steel in its unaltered state, great finish work, and a classic look. The doors and hood fit well and the fastback design has aged rather well too, don't you think? Even better, all the original trim was retained, including the gorgeous V-shaped grille and teardrop headlights, and all of it has been polished or re-chromed to really pop against that dark blue paint. There are LEDs inside the original-style taillights, but other than that, it's very much the way the original designers intended.
The interior certainly got a major makeover, starting with acres of tan ultraleather on just about every surface. Bucket seats allow easy access to the full-sized bench in back, so this is definitely hot-rodding, family style, although with such beautiful work you're going to be thinking twice about putting the kids in there. Neatly bound carpets and custom-made door panels mix luxury with custom design, while original handles keep it in touch with its origins. The original dash is still there, heavily massaged without losing the spirit of the original, and now housing a full array of VDO gauges in a custom aluminum dash panel plus a clock over in the glove box lid where it belongs! A/C was cleverly integrated and a tilt column makes it easy to do long-distance tours without getting tired. An AM/FM/CD stereo system certainly helps with the cruising and the way they've kept the interior very monochromatic gives it an upscale look that still looks and feels fresh years later. That's not easy to do. This sleek fastback also offers reasonable trunk space, complete with an access panel to the spare tire and battery.
A crate 350 cubic inch Chevy V8 means there's plenty of power available and service is a breeze. It's dressed up in finned tinwork and lots of shiny accessories and inhales through a Holley 4-barrel carb and Edelbrock intake to make a combination that was perfected decades ago. It's smooth and reliable, and with headers and a great-sounding dual exhaust system, there's a proper hot rod soundtrack, too. The front suspension is standard Mustang II fare with disc brakes, power rack-and-pinion steering and coil-overs, while the rear end is a 10-bolt GM with highway-friendly gears inside. In between, there's a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and easy to maintain finishes so you can drive without worries. Shiny Weld aluminum wheels are a familiar look and carry Michelin radials at all four corners.
Beautiful cars make beautiful rods, but you can see from the workmanship that this one stands out. Very affordable given the quality of the build, this wonderful Ford gets everything right. Call today!
