THE 1939 FORD DELUXE

The 1939 Ford Deluxe once again had a new frontal design by Bob Gregorie, distinguished by a new, lower grille that sat firmly between redesigned front fenders. This positioned the covered headlights farther apart and in the forefront of the fenders for better, broader illumination of the road—design features which lend from the big-brother Zephyr. Furthermore, the 1939 Ford model was equipped with hydraulic brakes, and it was the last year for the floor shifter and the 4-door Convertible Sedan body style. Additionally, Ford set the Deluxe apart with a better equipped interior and luxurious appointments throughout the cabin.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This spectacular 1939 Ford Deluxe Convertible Sedan was originally restored in 1996, yet further restoration was done by the consignor between 2006 and 2013. This brought the classic Ford to a correctness that provides a competitive concours car, while being genuinely drivable. The exterior paint has been professionally refinished in Coach Maroon Bright, neatly contrasted by the tan leather interior and convertible top. A Mitchell overdrive was added during the restoration to further aid to the car's usability. It should be noted, that although the engine is of the correct type for the 1939-model year, it appears to be a later built unit.

All gauges are functioning well, as is the clock, heater, and radio. Combined mileage after restoration is under 600 miles and a peek at the under carriage shows how extensive and detailed the restoration was. The car has been maintained in a temperature-controlled garage since 2006, and is offered with tools, jack, and restoration records.

This must be one of the finest examples remaining of the 3,561 produced in that year, and it was featured as the cover car for the Nov-Dec 2014, issue of V8 Time Magazine. This spectacular Ford has received class awards at both the Palo Alto and Hillsborough Concours events, and is ready for further Concours judging or touring.
