I bought this 1939 Ford Deluxe convertible sedan several years ago, planning that it would be my next project after I finished my current one (a 1942 Deluxe Fordor). As you can see from the first pictures (which show the car before I took it apart), it was basically a hulk, with no interior, and the wrong engine. The floor was gone, but, remarkably, the doors, the cowl, and the rear body panels were in excellent condition (and the trunk floor, while not great, was restorable.
The bumpers are rechromed, and it has four excellent bumper guards. The running boards are solid, but will, naturally, need to be recovered. The car has a very nice set of (sort of) NOS headlight buckets, and two sets of reproduction tail lights (one with blue-dot lenses in case you want to go with the hot-rod look…).
It has been bored .020 over and has new pistons, rings, bearings, valves (with springs and guides; I used the later version with adjustable lifters). The oil pump has been rebuilt, as have the distributor, the carburetor, the generator, and the starter.
We are easily accessible from I95, I295, Rt. 55, and the New Jersey Turnpike. You will need an enclosed van, not a car carrier, to pick it up.
