THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

The automotive breakthrough of the 1930s, Ford Motor Company introduced the V-8 in 1932 for its all-new 1932 models, offering the power, smoothness and prestige of more expensive cars at the price of competing six-cylinder cars. Matching Ford's renowned engineering was the V-8 Ford Model 48 line for 1935, restyled and a bit smaller and lower than the 1932-34 models. Ford promoted its 1935 line with the slogan: "Greater Beauty, Greater Comfort and Greater Safety."

Credit for the fresh new look from Ford rightly goes to Phil Wright, a Briggs Body Co. designer whose previous credits included the monumental Pierce-Arrow Silver Arrow. Among their winning design cues, the new-for-1935 Ford models featured a streamlined overall design theme with gently flowing fenders and radiator grille that was repositioned forward, yielding a more prominent and modernistic look. New horizontal hood louvers conveyed a vision of speed and aviation-inspired gracefulness. As always, a wide variety of body styles were offered, including the Tudor and Fordor sedans, five-window coupe, three-window coupe, convertible sedan, "woody" station wagon, roadster, and even the new Model 51 truck with exceptionally handsome car-like styling.

While long overshadowed by the 1932 and 1934 Ford models, the 1935 cars have aged particularly well and continue to carry a sophisticated presence with softer and less angular body lines that have only grown more attractive with the passage of time. Buyers were enthused, with production exceeding 942,000 vehicles for the 1935 calendar year, far beyond Ford's popular-price archrival, Chevrolet.

One of only 6,073 examples produced, this 1935 Ford Deluxe Phaeton carried a $580 price tag when new. It was acquired in restored form during June 2004 and placed into a significant private collection. Features and accessories are numerous, including a radio, heater, cigar lighter, Greyhound radiator cap, twin taillights and a handsome "banjo" steering wheel, plus twin chrome horns, wind wings and dual mirrors. Period style Maroon paint, tasteful brightwork, a Tan folding top, Brown upholstery and Red wire-spoke wheels with White sidewall tires add further appeal. Handsome throughout, this 1935 Ford Model 48 Deluxe Phaeton is very well equipped and marks a wonderful example of one of the most popular American automobiles of the 1930s – in upscale, open-air form to enjoy with friends and family alike.
