THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

When Ford came out with the Model T, the famous Touring body was just the beginning. Every iteration under the sun, with two and four doors, passenger and commercial was offered. The introduction of the Ford V-8 in 1932—along with the bifurcation of Standard and Deluxe trim lines meant that even more diversity could be made available. With a four door Station Wagon already in the line-up, few changes were required to produce a two-door Sedan Delivery for commercial applications. While the use case for these nearly windowless wagons was all business, the looks were pure style—retaining the handsome and elegant good looks of the passenger cars. While both a Standard and Deluxe option were available in 1939, for 1940 only the Deluxe remained.

This Deluxe Sedan Delivery is a nice example of a rare survivor. While just over 4000 Model 01A Deluxe Sedan Deliveries rolled off the line in '40, their business-oriented purpose meant most were driven into the ground. Of the few that remained, many others fell under the knife of customizers and hotrodders who favored the cars' looks and the easy availability for the tried-and-true flathead V-8.

Finished in Mandarin maroon over a Tan vinyl interior, this Sedan Delivery has been carefully restored to its original specification—with just a bit of liberty taken in the more luxuriously trimmed rear box. Running a trusty flathead V-8 mounted to the standard column-shift 3-speed, this Ford was owned for over three decades by a single family in North Dakota. From there the car ended up in the Early Ford V-8 collection of Richard Munz before it was acquired in 2010 by Rick Baker, another Blue Oval enthusiast. Coming into the present collection in 2015, it is offered today as an opportunity to wow crowds at shows or for use in promoting a business. Then as now, the truck's good looks shine through no matter where it goes or what it does.
