1939 Ford Suicide 4dr. Sedan De lux DeluxI'm selling this and a couple of other cars to down size and purchase a retro mod for retirement.
I purchased this car from Farmington MISSOURI about 4 years ago. Guys Uncle owned the car and had already installed a new original style plastic gas tank and a 12 volt system. He also added an Altenator, Electric fuel pump, fuel regulator, electric fan, Blinkers and Fenton Duel Exhaust manifolds with Thrush Mufflers. All of the 6 volt dash instruments remain untouched and light but no longer work. There are new illuminated gas, Water, amps and oil pressure gauges mounted under the dash and the heater runs. New led tail lights, license and headlamps work properly. Interior looks mostly original with possibly some nicely replaced seat panels. Front carpet needs replaced but the back carpet is ok and still has the original matting underneath. There is a mouse hole above the pass sunvisor. The windows are all original, but very fogged (winshield glass should be replaced). there are no door rubber seals. The only rust I see are some small holes in the outer rear lower panel below the deck lid. HYDRYLIC BRAKES WORK OK BUT ARE IN NEED OF BLEEDING AND REPAIR. Bumpers are straight but show wear while the stainless is very nice. This was how it was purchased!
After getting the home I realized it had a cracked block.
I located a LATE 1948 MOTOR with HARDENED VALVE SEATS and took it to a well known local shop and had it cleaned, magnifluxed and bored to +.030". Crank was ground, rods sized (both ends), and new cam bearings were installed. ALL NEW AMERICAN parts were installed including bearings, Pistons and rings, STAINLESS STEEL VALVES assembleys, Melling oil pump, and an ISKY 3/4 RACE CAM with solid lifters. Ignition system is a new aluminum MALLERY ELECTRONIC DISTRIBUTOR. Both new design water pumps were also installed for better water flow. I reused the cast manifold as I was having some carb idleing issues. The aluminum manifold shown will also go with the car. I had planned on repairing the fenders with minor touchup on the rest of the paint and installing aluminum heads and 3 dueces but stopped there. This motor was then reinstalled to the original matching number transmission.
THERE ARE ONLY ABOUT 200 MILES ON THIS MOTOR. THIS CAR ( IN MY OPINION) LOOKS SWEET AS IS AND A COMPLETE REPAINT WOULD BE A MISTAKE UNLESS YOU WANT AN ORIGINAL CAR !!! CAR HAS A GOOD CLEAN OHIO TITLE.
We promote the car at meets as a moonshiners car with orange crates, mason jars and grain sacks in the trunk under a shiners license plate. It sounds the part Too!

I have a 100% feedback satisfaction rating... read my comments. I do my best to describe this vehicle but it is still a USED CAR and is being SOLD AS IS. Ther are many pictures and I try to do my best to give an honest description. PLEASE inspect the pics carefully with the last few showing some of the minor dents, scrapes and damage on the car and at the bottom of the fenders. It is also for sale locally and I reserve the right to end the auction if it is locally sold.
