A Cool 1950s-Style Mild Custom
Finished in Black with only the addition of period rear-fender skirts, the Ford retains the original bright trim and features 1950s-style multi-color pin stripe accents. Twin chrome rear view mirrors and steel wheels with beauty rings, chrome “flipper” hubcaps, and wide Whitewall tires round out the exterior features.
Nicely Preserved Interior with Choice Updates
The interior features Maroon leather upholstery and appears to be original and well-maintained, notwithstanding the vehicle’s age. While mostly factory-correct in presentation with a proper “Super DeLuxe” steering wheel, dash, column shifter, and factory heater, the interior does features an added three-gauge pack monitoring vital functions, as well as a modern CD stereo head unit mounted vertically inside a custom dash-top mount. The trunk is properly paneled and carpeted in the factory style.
Rebuilt "Flathead" with Period Speed Goodies
The proper 221 cubic-inch “Flathead” V-8 engine has been rebuilt and delivers considerably more than its original 85-horsepower factory rating with very desirable period upgrades and speed goodies. Most noticeable is the quartet of Stromberg ‘97’ two-barrel carburetors and aftermarket intake manifold. Finned Offenhauser aluminum cylinder heads are another valuable 1950s performance upgrade. A modern 12-volt electrical system and polished alternator provides stronger starting power and the juice needed to power the modern stereo system. Updated spark-plug wires provide improved combustion and power delivery. Upon inspection, the chassis and underpinnings appear to be in good working order and the undnerbody looks solid.
Restored and Built to Cruise and Enjoy
Just 41,403 miles are indicated at the time of description writing. Sympathetically restored and preserved, this already desirable 1941 Ford Super DeLuxe Convertible is a fabulous, 1950s-style mild custom with an unmodified body and excellent updates for enhanced performance and drivability. Enjoy it with the top down while listening to the great exhaust note from the legendary “Flathead” V-8 engine and dual exhaust pipes!
