1939 Ford "Standard" Sedan
This car is one of the nicest unmolested 39 sedans I have come across. Weve enjoyed this car for the past 4 years. It came from a So Cal Collector of early Fords Estate. Relatively stock with an 8ba Flathead and dropped axle. Outstanding Body with no evidence of patch panels. Paint was finished in lacquer an estimated 30 years ago but amazingly still looks better than 90% of the cars at ANY show. Whoever did the paint and body on this car was an exceptional Craftsman. Body is VERY straight and Paint is fully sanded and buffed to perfection. However due to its age there are a number of touch ups here and there, some very slight lacquer crack in one spot, but nothing major. You would have to own the car to notice them. The only part of the body that was not show quality were the lower grilles, but I found an NOS set at the LA roadster show 2 years ago, painted them and installed on the car. Floor pan is original with one quarter sized spot of rust under the back seat as shown in the pictures below. The rest is very solid. Interior is also 30 years old with the exception of the carpet which we replaced recently. Seats are nice, but D/S has a tear on the side where the hinge is. All windows work great with the original roll back and down regulators. All gauges work as well as the lights. 8 track even works great. Under the hood resides one of the strongest Flatheads I have ever owned. 3-3/8 bore, 21 A rods, 3-3/4 1936 crank offset ground 1/16th to 3-7/8 stroke..277cu in. Mallory breakerless ignition. Taylor wires, Fenton Headers, Hi Torque starter, offenhauser high compression heads, edelbrock intake with three 94's progressively linked. Exhaust is new with Flowmaster Hush Powers. Backed by the original 3 speed that shifts great, but will grind 2nd to 3rd if you shift it too fast. Juice brakes stop this car well. Rides on new Firestones and 15" steelies. Tons of fun to drive and a perfect example of a 50's era HotRod. This car is the real deal.
