1939 Ford Super Deluxe Convertible

1939 Ford Super Deluxe Convertible

The clean styling of Ford's 1940 offerings was one factor that drove sales to more than five hundred thousand units, a jump of more than fifty percent over the previous year. Part of this popularity could no doubt be attributed to Eugene “Bob” Gregorie's influence on the stylists who penned this design while he was chief of Ford's design department, a post that he held from 1935 to 1943. It was a freshening up of a styling concept first introduced in 1939 by the addition of a new front-end design.

For consignment, a Deluxe convertible. Ford actually sold the rights to the design in later years so they could be reproduced in fiberglass. This car is metal, retains its beautiful bulbous design, running boards, and has a convertible top put on. The interior is a sight to behold in all its modernized two-tone glory, and an overall very nice build for sale here at Classic Auto Mall. The depression is over, baby. Put the top down and raise up some dirt road dust!!

Exterior
Bathed in very nice maroon 2 stage paint, and adorned with near perfection chrome bumpers, badging, and brite-work, we have a rolling work of art. Very little was left unturned on this restoration, as lines are straight, gaps are really nice, and steel is straight. The large visored headlamp bezels flank a vertical ribbed curved V grille and tall inverted boat hood center. A nice chromed spear works its way back on either side along the beltline of the slightly curved sides. At the tapered tail of this car, we see 2 teardrop shaped tail lights almost getting lost in the deep field of maroon paint. A tan canvas convertible top is on and moves up and down easily. Bulbous fenders, the rear with fender skirts, are joined in the middle by rubber covered running boards. Steel wheels are covered with ribbed deep trim rings and a central large moon cap with an engraved V8 in their centers. These beauties are all wrapped up in wide white wall rubber. Yowza!

Interior
A swing of the door, and we are in two tone maroon and tan leather and vinyl heaven. The door panels are custom covered with curved panels alternating between the maroon and tan. Notice the power window toggles on these doors. Inside plush leather two tone bucket seats have tan bolsters and maroon wide tuck and roll inserts. Neat piping in maroon encircles these buckets and they sit within maroon plastic tubs and now with seat belts. Upfront a banjo style rally steering wheel is wrapped in maroon leather. This sits atop an adjustable steering column also in maroon. This power steering setup sits in front of a wonderfully warm burl wood dash that has classic looking white-faced gauges with gold bezels. A modern AM/FM/CD stereo is in and runs on a newer 12-volt system. Gold carpeting covers the floors and goes well with the interior warmth. Power brakes are also noticed.

Drivetrain
Lifting the inverted boat hood and we are met with an equally massive consignor stated 305ci V8 in chromed and polished splendor. A 4-barrel feeds plenty of fossils and air to the mill, and it is backed up by a 200R4 4-speed automatic. Moroso provides the chromed valve coverings, and braided stainless steel hoses are throughout.

Undercarriage
Very clean and totally newer Fat Man chassis with no rust here, and front power disc brakes, and power rear drum brakes. A like new exhaust system snakes its way rearward through the structurally sound framework, and very nice undercarriage of floor pans, toe kicks and rockers..all rust free and painted maroon like the topside.

Drive-Ability
She fires right up and this car with the power steering, power braking and new engine is a pleasure and cinch to drive. It glided around the test track and with those wonderful lines turned heads along the way. The top is manually operated but has a matching tonneau covering for it when in the down position. The brake lights were not coming on during my test drive.

Take the very popular for the time design, spice it up with 2 stage maroon and pepper on some chrome on the exterior, stitch a maroon and tan leather interior with burl wood and gold bezels, and gold carpeting and we have a real winner. And do not forget the convertible and the gleaming engine in 305ci 4-barrel form, all dressed up and ready to go out, with a bang! Say it's only a paper moon sailing over a cardboard sea…
