This is a classic 1939 Ford Convertible undergoing a mild custom face lift. The top has had a nice subtle “chop” added to it. All 1939 Convertibles came with a rumble seat in the trunk area, but we couldn’t leave this one alone, so we turned it into a “rare” trunk model 1939 Convertible. Then a little head scratching and we came up with a unique wheel treatment which involves mid 30’s MoPar wheel centers and traditional outer rims with MoPar hubcap bases and altered Ford hubcap skins attached. For a power plant we have a flathead V-8, a blower, and a really “kool” Autotrend fuel injection system in “look-a-like” carburetor housings. Since this car is evolving into being a dual purpose car, a short term showable car and a longer term reliable “stand tall” driver, it was decided to shoot the bottom of the body with a paintable undercoating and sound deading material, then paint it body color.
