1939 Ford Standard Convertible Deluxe Coupe
Henry Ford is beloved by auto enthusiasts and hot rodders around the world for many reasons. Besides the durability and parts exchange ability of his products, one of the favorite concepts from the mind of Mr. Ford was a different and distinct vehicle introduced each and every year. Back in the early days of the automobile, advancements were being made so rapidly that each new model year was something the car-hungry public highly anticipated. This worked out great for the Ford Motor Company until the advancements slowed and the styling wasn't such a huge hit with the auto buying public. The year in question was 1937; something about that year and the departure from the sweeping graceful lines of 1936 to the round and bloated profile of the '37 mixed with nothing revolutionary in the mechanical department (save for the introduction of the dismally underpowered V-8 60 decades before "economy cars" were fashionable) would forever resonate through blue oval history. The unpopular design of the '37 was tweaked for the '38 models, which resulted in the worst year in Ford's history to that point.
Things started looking up in 1939 when the design for the future favorite that would be the legendary '40 was introduced in the Deluxe model, but still in the lineup was the '39 Standard that had been carried over from the ill-fated '38 Deluxe model.
This car was customized and converted to a convertible.
