Here's a cool hot rod that mixes rarity and originality with some great upgrades. This 1941 Ford Super Deluxe convertible is a true head-turner at any car show, and with great driveability, you will want to cruise all day long.
This well-presented droptop is a nice cross between an original car and a street rod. Sometimes custom work goes too far and takes away a car's soul, but not this one. Just take a look at the front end. The trim has been smoothed and the headlights frenched. But beyond this, you get everything that makes this special, including the Ford script etched in the front and the 1941-only three-part grille. The tall fenders and rounded trunk look like they were made for this modern and glossy black. There was $14k invested in the paint alone in 2009, and so it's nice to see this shine uninterrupted through the expert elimination of trim and the door handles. Add in the correct bumpers, dual side mirrors, wide exhaust tips, and half-moon hubcaps, and this is the perfect representation of slick black and all the right brightwork.
While the bright red roof looks fantastic against the black paint, we like it even better when it's down. The combination of black exterior and maroon interior is the kind of attractiveness that will draw attention from across a show field. And as people get closer, they know they're in for something special. The interior was done in 2007 at an expense over $23k, and the investment really shows. The quality maroon leather knows how to last, and so it still looks new today on the seats and matching side panels. And because this vehicle is all about a tasteful mix of old and new, you'll love the classic cream-colored steering wheel that matches the original dash. And because you'll want to really drive this classic custom, there's a set of newer auxiliary gauges to give you a clear picture of what's going on in the engine bay.
The moment you open the hood the dual down pipes and bolt-on flathead are the unmistakable hallmarks of the true Ford V8 power. The 221 cubic-inch flathead is a legendary powerplant, and it's the correct displacement for a '41. It's a great engine for reliable power when new, and that still holds true today thanks to more modern upgrades like an Edelbrock carburetor, an alternator, and an extra fan on the radiator. It's all part of a total package that had over $10k invested in the mechanical setup. So with the glasspack-style dual exhaust and a three-on-the-tree manual transmission for a bit of fun, you've got a great all-around driver.
We mentioned a lot about the money invested in this custom creation, and so you'll be happy to know there are the restoration receipts and photos that come with the sale. It's a unique and cool build that will attract attention wherever it goes. So if you're ready for all eyes on you, call today!
