GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this breath taking 1939 Ford Standard Coupe! This immaculate classic comes in a stunning maroon and black paint job complemented by a spotless beige interior. Powering the Ford is a 221 cubic inch V8 motor mated to a crisp manual gearbox. This vehicle comes to us from an elite private collection where it has lived since 1962! During its time there a full restoration was professionally completed as well as various general maintenance. Additionally, a locally well known classic automobile shop recently went through the Ford giving it a clean bill of health. So if you're in the market for a top tier piece of automotive history, you'll be hard pressed to find a better example on the market today! Please contact us today for more information.
The Ford line of cars was updated in 1937 with one major change, the introduction of an entry-level 136 CID (2.2 L) V8 in addition to the popular 221 CID (3.6 L) flathead V8. The model was a refresh of its predecessor, the Model 48 and was the company's main product. The 1937 Ford featured a more rounded look with fine horizontal bars in the convex front and hood-side grilles. The front grille was V-shaped, rather than following the fenders into a pentagon shape, as on the 1936 model. Faired-in headlights were a major modernization found on both the Standard and DeLuxe trim versions, though much of the rest of the design was shared between Ford's two lines. A larger water pump was used to help aid in cooling.
