This 1939 Ford Deluxe Convertible Restoration is a proud member of the 1937 Ford series that ran for four model years. Available in no less than ten body styles during its production run in the United States and Australia, these classic Thirties Fords are firmly cemented in American automotive history. The car in question here has undergone a significant restoration effort and has just 6,000 miles since then. Furthermore, it's received a few enhancements under the skin to make it go surprisingly swiftly when the mood strikes.
You might think it's a black car at first glance, but the very dark shade of maroon paint on this 1939 Ford Deluxe Convertible Restoration can be deceiving. The car looks stunning, with its black canvas top and reportedly new lights. We're also told that all chrome parts have been re-chromed, which explains why they look so shiny and new. Inside, you'll find a brown and black interior with reupholstered seats and mostly original fittings. There are three auxiliary gauges mounted in the center console for monitoring battery voltage, water temperature, and oil pressure, which is important when you've got a significantly enhanced powertrain that we'll get to in just a moment. We also spot a RadioShack CB radio installed beneath the clock in the dash.
This 1939 Ford Deluxe Convertible Restoration has a newer and more powerful 4.9L V8 under the hood, as we are told by the current owner. It's said to have been rebuilt by Red's Heads in Sacramento, CA. Part of the rebuild has included boring the engine with flathead talk 3/8 by 3/8, installing a new high-pressure oil pump, fitting a ¾ street cam with steel tappets, and an aluminum flywheel which pairs with a steel clutch and racing clutch system. There's also said to be Hedman headers, Mallory ignition, aluminum high-compression heads, and a 2-carb manifold. Drive goes to the rear wheels via a rebuilt manual transmission with Lincoln Zephyr gears and a rebuilt 3.54 rear end. We're also informed that the radiator has been rebuilt, and a thermostat-controlled pancake fan has been fitted. Elsewhere, there are new biscuit-type shocks fitted.
