DESCRIPTION

1942 Ford Super Deluxe This car is a true barn find in it's original condition. It is original as it comes. Flat 8 3 Speed on the tree The paint and interior are all original with minor touch up on paint. The motor and transmission are claimed to be original as well. We didn't buy the car new, so can only go by the history on the that we have. It really is in remarkable condition. The 1942 model year lasted only four months before the government ordered a halt to civilian automobile production starting on February 10, 1942. Changes were made to the car besides a three-part "electric shaver" grille -- and the parking lights were moved from the top of the fenders to between the grill and headlights. Tail lights were enlarged and moved from vertical to horizontal. The frame was lowered and softer springs were used to improve the ride. The dashboard was changed, moving the radio from the top of the dash to low down, and the linear speedometer and clock were replaced with round ones. The radio had an optional floor button so the driver could change preselected stations without using hands. War rationing required auto makers to black out their chrome trim-Ford used silver paint - and a special four-door model was produced with no chrome at all for military use. The pickup received new styling, as well, with heavy vertical bars, and truck production lasted through March 3. The 1942-style Ford cars certainly continued to be produced as military staff cars from March 1942 through summer 1945. These would have been registered as 1942, 1943, 1944, and 1945 models. Additionally, a large number 1942 (and a few 1941) cars held in dealer stocks by government edict, to be doled out to essential users during the conflict, were Fords. Some states titled cvars aby the year of sale, so it is possible to find 1943, 1944 and 1945 models by virtue of their registrations and titles.
