1941 Ford Super Deluxe Convertible
Touted as an affordable car for the masses, with every part starting from raw steel to the rubber tires, produced within the confines of the massive Ford plant, the Super Deluxe offered a smooth ride, touted a large interior, and hydraulic brakes, all at a very affordable price. Some of this may have been true, and some not, but it sold cars, and that was the bottom line in 1941.
For consignment, a 1941 Super Deluxe convertible looking the part with its rounded lines accented by thin chrome trimmings and two rows of it! A 221ci flathead V8 and a white canvas convertible top that works very smoothly electrically. A fine example gracing our south hallway and maybe even the main showroom. These cars tend to move all over the hallowed halls of the Classic Auto Mall.
Draped in olive green, this steel slabbed Ford produced Super Deluxe has most of all its original trimmings and is looking simply fab. In Super Deluxe style, the barrel shaped vertical ribbed V Grille with its two flanking side panels looks shiny and unmarred. Rounded lines with bulbous fenders now with just a very small running board, we are moving into the modern era of the next car look as to the overall design genre. A hinged on the back hood with some curved edges, and a bulbous badged front section and a rounded trunk with a clear plastic rear window for the canvas roof just above. We see a central passenger compartment which utilizes square doors and is adorned with belt line trim spears. Also noted are some snazzy thin fender trimmings that wrap around the back and front quarters. A flared rocker is seen at the bottom. On all 4 corners are the standard 14-inch olive green painted steel wheels sporting moon caps in the center with Ford logo badging. Wide white walls for all corners are the standard fare for this Deluxe which is just Super!
Taking some liberties to show off the fine finishes of the interior, the brown metal dash is showing, now with a brown metal background for a horizontally aligned instrument cluster with new sweet tan gauges within a horizontal bar of pure chrome lusciousness Knobs and pulls have are all lined up at the bottom of the custom dash and have that wonderful aged white to tan bakelite feel and appear as almost chess pieces. On the dash top center is a working bakelite radio with more beautifully aged ivory coloring. Below that wide horizontal strip of chrome is a ribbed chromed speaker covering. Chairs are now covered in nice brown/tan vinyl and there are split backs for the fronts so one can access the back bench. Door panels match in the brown vinyl and have chromed handle accenting and a brown textured vinyl covered armrest in the centers. A large round brown bakelite steering wheel fronts this dash, and thick pile very clean like new brown carpeting floods the floors. The inside of the canvas top is excellent.
Flipping the hinged hood, we see in the restored engine bay, a 221ci Flathead V8 which our decoder states is correct for this car. As is the 1-barrel carburetor feeding it, and the 3-speed manual transmission on back. This setup is a 6-volt electrical system. A newer aluminum radiator fronts the mill, and the rear axle weighs in at a 3.54 ratio.
An X frame with no rust firmly supports like new floor pans and shiny exhaust in single form. Body hangers are rust free and it is definitely an all-solid undercarriage environment. New transverse leaf springs for the front and original rear suspension, work with drum brakes on all 4 corners. Also, a new steering system was recently put on
She started right up, and on the test track had solid acceleration and bias free braking. Steering was smooth and shifting was the same. All other functions were working as they should.
In keeping most of its original charm, we see an overall very good condition automobile, with that fab grille! Much of the original trimmings and steel panels have been retained and the paint is excellent, still shiny after all those years showing just a few small battle scars. It is time to do another bucket list thing in retirement, so advantage YOU! Come and get it!
