19350000 Ford Other DELUXE ROADSTERThis is one of the rarest 1935 Ford Australian Deluxe Roadsters available. Only 4896 were produced by Ford in 1935 and according to the Australian Ford Club less than 10 % were exported worldwide. You do the math!This is a highly mechanically modified car but it retains the lines and looks of the original. The two tone paint adds to the spectacular curb appeal and is fresh out of the shop of TRADITIONAL SPEED AND CUSTOM, ittsfield, H. It won a 1st place trophy before the recent paint and body work and has not been shown since. Please read the following list of parts and improvements and feel free to ask questions. New Hampshire is a non title state for older vehicles, t will be sold with a clear bill of sale and signed over current NH registration.
The car was converted from right hand drive back to US left hand drive by previous owner, he battery is still located on the right passenger side. The dash is the only fiberglass part due to change in steering location.The windshield has been chopped 2 inches and the top has been chopped to match and a new custom top installed. The interior has a Glide engineering 39 type seat covered in red leather/vinyl and custom door panels, ear section, umble seat and panels to match. New carpeting installed. Many other new parts have been added. Mileage is as shown on odometer. Autometer tach and SW oil pressure and temp gauges. Custom fit storage cover included.The engine is a 39-42 Ford Flathead completely rebuilt by prior owner, t has Eldebrook heads, dmunds dual intake, win Stromburg (New type) 97 carbs and Edmunds air cleaners. Powergen alternator chrome to give the look of an original generator. Mallory electronic ignition. Fenton cast headers, eds dual exhaust with Smitty mufflers. The suspension consists ofPete and Jakes shocks, ront and rear and an old school lowered rear spring. The transmission is a Chevy S-10 5 speed with correct gear ratios that was professionally rebuilt.It was chosen for the performance and that the shifter mounts close to the original location and has an original shifter shaft/knob. It is mated to a custom drive shaft and an open rear end conversion by Hot Rod Works and by a bell housing adapter. Frame modified with x-member conversion and split front wishbones by Chassis Engineering. Brakes have been converted to a 40's Ford hydralic system with manual emergency brake.

Driving lights are new old stock.
Note that the Australian roadster differs from the US version in that there is more space behind the seat as seen in the pictures. Note distance from top of rumble seat to the top mounting. I am told by my contact in Australia this was due to the US using the rear stampings based on the 3 window coupe and foreign units were based on the 5 window coupe. Cars were shipped as chassis and motors assembled in US and bodies applied in country sold.
This is a fine running beautiful rare car. It is sold as is as shown with no warrantee expressed or implied. It is available for test drive and can be seen by appointment and viewed on my lift. ASK questions. The reserve is very reasonable and I reserve the right to end the auction early because of local sale.RESERVE PRICE LOWERED DON'T MISS OUT
