1939 Ford Other Deluxe

This is a great example of a 1939 Ford Deluxe V8 Model 91A 2 –door sedan. It was purchased from the Leith Collection; this beautiful automobile was sold new in Texas and used in the mountains of North Carolina to run “white lighting”. As was typical of a moonshine ca, the engine was modified to outrun the law. Legend has it that this car was never “caught” –always outrunning the revenuers – and the owner attributed his success (and luck) to the silver horse shoe he attached to the grill over 60 years ago which remains with the car today!

The body and interior were restored over 15 years ago. Both show very little wear. The body fitment and black paint are exceptional. No bondo or accident repair is evident. The interior is correct and beautifully fresh. The flathead V8 was recently tuned and runs strong and smooth as it should. It retains the vintage Edelbrock heads which were affixed to this beauty during its “rum running” days.

The 1937-1939 Fords are iconic and known to be one of the most beautifully styled automobiles of their time. The 1939’s were the best of the bunch due to the introduction of hydraulic brakes. The art deco style of the exterior continues to the interior, from its banjo-style steering wheel to its wood-grained door frames garnished with ivory plastic inserts. With its colorful history, this fine automobile is a piece of Americana, and will give the new owner many miles of enjoyment for years to come.
