As one of the finest automobile designs of the immediate pre-WW II years, the 1939 Ford lineup was also one of the last fruits of the design collaboration of company president Edsel B. Ford and former New York yacht designer "Bob" Gregorie. Offered for 1939 in Standard and DeLuxe trim levels, with the Standard line appearing much like the 1938 DeLuxe models, Ford's top-of-the-line DeLuxe offerings for 1939 featured an exclusive and much more modern appearance. The 1939 DeLuxe Fords also featured a modern Art Deco-themed interior complementing their fresh exterior styling. Mechanical updates included new rear leaf springs, Lockheed hydraulic brakes, revised cylinder heads, and other welcome detail improvements. While some 532,000 Ford passenger cars were built in total during 1939, precious few survive today. Fewer still are as well-preserved and presented as this collector-grade example.
 
Handsomely benefiting from a very well-preserved and presented body-off-frame restoration that was completed during the early 1980s, this prewar Ford V-8 icon was recently acquired from the noted collection of Ron Thorne. Its prior owner was none other than noted Californian collector Nick Alexander, who toured the Ford extensively in a variety of Early Ford V-8 Club events during his ownership. Finished in Blue paint over a correct Tan cloth interior, the vehicle is well-equipped with desirable accessories, including dual mirrors, chrome front and rear bumper guards, and chrome steel artillery-style wheels with trim tings and gleaming chrome hubcaps. Interior accessories include a rare radio, dash clock, DeLuxe "Banjo" steering wheel, and a crank-out windshield. Accompanying items include a correct spare tire, a 1939 Ford reference book, and a wealth of photographs documenting the high-quality restoration. 
 
Ready to show, tour, and enjoy, this 1939 Ford DeLuxe Coupe is a wonderful example of Ford Motor Company's winning prewar model lines. It also provides an exceptional opportunity to join its distinguished prior owners in early Ford V-8 collector circles. See it for yourself by contacting us today and get ready to add it to your collection of one to many significant automobiles!
