239 Flathead V8
This 1939 Ford Deluxe Convertible is the final year for the rumble seat from the factory. And while it has a nice stock style, they also wanted to make sure you\'re ready to cruise this unique machine. So pay close attention to worthwhile upgrades like the formal triple-black style and enhancements to the flathead V8. The elegantly rounded fenders and sharply-pointed front end of the \'39 Ford make this design a true pre-war icon. Bright bumpers, two-piece wheel covers, a chrome grille, and teardrop headlight bezels deliver the right classic brightwork. The black paint represents its era well. It has the right shine to showcase the curves in the classic sheet metal, but it has enough maturity to make sure no one accuses you of having a trailer queen. That\'s important because so few people know the rumble seat lasted until 1939, and many people will assume you have a custom classic. So you want to be able to drive around and tell this car\'s story. What you really have are the important stock pieces, but the right added flair with subtle upgrades like the blue-dot tail lights and bright dual exhaust tips. The black canvas roof is a newer piece that looks good against the black paint. And when you take it down, the black interior gives you a nice triple-black style. In fact, the largest piece of color you\'ll find are the white inserts on the front seats, and the way they look against the whitewall tires make this cruiser look like it\'s wearing a tuxedo. You get the classic banjo-style steering wheel, stock gauges, and long shifter for a true vintage driving experience. And you can always share the time capsule experience with more people just by flipping open the rear rumble seat. Under the hood is classic Ford flathead power, but you can instantly tell this V8 is extra special. This is a later/larger 239 cubic-inch block with a dual set of Stromberg dual-barrel carburetors sitting on an Eddie Meyer Hollywood Intake. You\'ll spot more upgraded features that are useful like Sharp finned heads, a 12-volt electrical system, an alternator, and an upgraded starter. It\'s a strong-running package that makes a nice tune out of the dual exhaust. There\'s a classic driving feeling that you want in a pre-war Ford like this. But you also know it\'s a proper cruiser with details like the way the three-speed manual transmission lets you take control of the motor, and there are modern touring tires disguised as the classic whitewalls. The sale comes complete with nice extras like the maintenance records and a convertible boot. No matter if you want to lead the parade or just have a more distinctive pre-war cruiser, it\'s hard to beat the appeal of a rumble-seat Ford. So don\'t let this rare one get away. Call today!!!
