1939 Ford Other -- Additional Info:

With its distinctive, well-configured form wearing both an outstanding color and a killer stance, this 1939 Ford Coupe will attract plenty of attention based on its appearance alone, but it's also a very strong driver, propelled by a fresh, potent crate engine beneath its hood that's now just emerging from its break-in stage, and cruising on a modernized suspension for a smooth, refined ride. This vintage Ford features a sturdy steel body to make it resistant... to the forces of both time and use, with a pair of fiberglass rear quarters on board to lighten things up a bit and make for that favorable power to weight ratio we aspire to. It's draped in a magnetic shade of red that carries a great shine and is free of any glaring flaws - this is a ride that could definitely make an impact on the local car show circuit. It's a thoroughly distinctive classic, with flowing fenders both fore and aft that are bridged by broad running boards that, like the ornate front grille and front and rear bumpers, have been color matched to the rest of the exterior for an even more singular appearance. Take a lap around and you'll notice just how road ready it looks - its exterior alignment is on point, fresh rubber seals surround the front and rear windshields and just the right amount of wheel offset has been dialed in to accommodate the sizable tires in back. The attention to detail inside the doors is impressive, where gray cloth buckets sit between matching door panels, both of which are in top form. An aftermarket LeCarra wheel is perched on the steering column and the collection of AutoMeter gauges in front of it looks ultra sharp recessed into its surrounding smooth steel. Lower the glove box door and you'll see the reason for the dash area's unusually clean appearance - key control knobs and switches have been skillfully migrated inside. An excellent audio experience comes via an AM/FM/CD stereo with iPod connectivity that teams with a Kenwood subwoofer and amp in back to produce pulsating low end frequencies and the added underdash climate control system keeps things cool during these warmer months. The fully upholstered trunk area in back reflects the skilled workmanship shown throughout the rest of the interior. Beneath the hood, the 350 cubic inch crate V8 that propels this classic has only been driven about 500 miles since being lowered into a truly show-worthy engine compartment. It carries an Edelbrock 4-barrel carb on top of a high-rise intake manifold to maximize output and its oblong air cleaner is color matched to the surrounding firewall and inner fenders. A nice array of added chrome components, including the air conditioning compressor and alternator, really complete the overall look here. The motor pairs with a smooth-shifting 3-speed TH350 transmission, while farther forward, a sizable aluminum radiator and electric fan is in place to keep operating temperatures under control. This vintage Ford cruises on a thoroughly upgraded suspension - the Mustang II front end provides both coilover shocks and refined rack and pinion steering, while the 4-link system in back offers a smooth, quiet ride. Disc brakes at all four corners bring the set of 15" 5-spoke Pacer wheels to prompt, fade resistant stops and there's a pair of sizable Hoosier pro-street tires in back for a vice-like grip on the asphalt. If you're searching for a vintage street rod that's ready to roll just as soon as you bring it home, this 1939 Ford Coupe is definitely a car you're going to want to check out. Call today!
