1939 Ford Deluxe Convertible w/ Rumble Seat
1939 Ford Deluxe Convertible, Fresh Rebuilt 239 Flathead V8, 3-Spd, Rumble Seat
This week Canyon State Classics has the honor of bringing to market a 1939 Ford Deluxe 91A Convertible in VERY nice condition inside and out! This Ford comes equipped with the iconic fold out rumble seat in the rear and turns heads wherever it goes. When was the last time you saw something this old and this sharp going down the road? This old Deluxe has been treated to a recent full engine overhaul and full color correction. She needs nothing to start being enjoyed at the shows or on the road and this Ford drives as good as it looks! The car has come to us recently out of an amazing ownership since 1992 and had a very interesting history prior to that!
Previous to the current consignor's almost 30 year ownership of this '39 Ford, the car lived an interesting life. He acquired the vehicle out of Oregon from a couple who collected 30's Americana and had a couple other Fords for sale. This one was chosen over the others for its historical significance and because it had just completed a complete frame-off restoration in the spring of 1992. This included a complete drive train rebuild, fresh top, new paint and wood grain as well as a like new leather interior. The couple out of Oregon had attained the car from the Walt Disney Company in California. Disney had used the Ford in a musical production and then later allegedly moved it to the Spruce Goose Dome for the 1939 display along side the giant sea going plane, Queen Mary and other cool 30's and 40's items. Acquisition of the car came when Disney decided to no longer display the large plane and surrounding items just 3 years later, as they scrapped plans for "Port Disney" that were to include said displays.
The following is a list of equipment on the 1939 Ford Deluxe Convertible:
-Ford Flathead V8 (freshly rebuilt)
-3 Speed Transmission
-Armstrong Power Steering
-Lockheed Hydraulic "Footstrong" Power Brakes
-Glove Box Analog Clock
-Tan Leather Interior & Rumble Seat
-Original Ford V8 Center Caps
The exterior on the 39 Ford has been refinished in "Centeri Black" is in great condition.The paint is 30+ years old and does show some small cracks and crows feet in a few spots, but we just completed a 20 hour color correction and detail on the car so she is looking the best she has in over 2 decades.The fenders are all arrow straight and all body lines are correct. The underside of the car is perfect with no rust or prior floor pan repairs. The chrome is very nice original with the expected few small dings or blemishes, but over all is gorgeous for original condition. The car is riding on nice wide whitewalls with correct Ford hubcaps. The black soft top is almost new and looks great with the tan leather interior!
The interior is in great shape all around. The leather interior is also showing very well for its 30 plus year old age. The Art Deco styling and bakelite knobs and dials are all in outstanding shape. The dash and door panels look like new. Amazing how well it has been kept as well as restored where needed.
Mechanically, this Ford runs great. The motor provides ample power to move the car around comfortably and the 3 speed manual shifts as it should. Clutch was replaced at time of engine rebuild and engages confidently. The engine was rebuilt a few years back by a master aircraft engineer who had a love of old for Flat heads and this was one of his last masterpieces before he recently passed. The current owner estimates only maybe 500 break in miles since rebuild. The car starts right up and runs so quiet its hard to tell its running. The car was checked front to back and starts up like a top, and stops the way it should. This car is ready to cruise!
All in all, this is one very clean and very respectable '39 Ford. This car is a great example of a solid car which has been well taken care of and is a car you can be proud to drive. These 30's era cars are becoming harder to find as well preserved examples such as this one. Plus you cant deny the cool history this car brings to the table as well!

The car is located in Sunny Tempe, Arizona.
