Classic of the Week

The Last of the Pre-War Ford Coupes

All too often these pre-war cars look, smell and drive like “old cars” and not “classic cars”.  This 1942 Ford Super Deluxe Coupe is a notable exception.  It is an attractively styled car without any of the sensory reminders of an older car; and it starts, runs and stops like a much more recent classic. The engine and transmission are quiet and smooth-running and a delight to drive from the first time you press the starter button.  And this is the model with the hidden storage behind the front seat: the Rum-Runner’s special ! 

This is a special series because Ford stopped making cars for domestic sale in 1942 when it and the other car manufacturers ramped up for war material production, only resuming making cars in 1946 after the war’s end.

If you click on the picture it will take you to our website where you will find a full description, 30 or so pictures and a video of the car.
