This beautiful 1939 Ford Coupe from Tennessee has a very interesting history. It was converted into a hotrod in the ‘50s with an awesome period correct style. It is currently being offered on eBay from Plainville, Connecticut with the bid just over $19,300 as of writing.
The interesting 276 Desoto Hemi V8 engine is beautifully mounted in the small engine bay and still runs great. The Hemi is connected to a 1939 Ford transmission that has been recently reworked which adds up to a very solid drivetrain. This coupe also received a 12-volt system upgrade. This coupe is a very awesome looking ride and with the powerful 276 Hemi engine, it would be a joy to drive this one.
The interior of this coupe looks great as well. Everything looks clean and has been well preserved. Although there are some minor flaws, it still looks great. The seat and door panels look clean, and it features a 1949 Mercury dash which goes really well.
This Ford’s body looks excellent, all body panels look tight. The beautiful and glossy finish looks stunning but specifics about it are unclear. It is possible that the paint was added when it was modified, or it can even be the original finish. There are no documents to prove either but what really matters is that it looks beautiful. The trim and chrome look clean and intact. This Ford hotrod also feature Dodge taillights from the 50s, another remembrance from its hot rod transformation. The floor is all solid and rust free, the same thing can be said about the trunk. It still features its original gas tank as well.
The seller has replaced all brake lines with fresh ones and added a dual master cylinder. New pressure plate, clutch, coil, and battery were also installed. It rides on new Firestone Gum Dipped Bias Ply Whitewalls. Everything looks good and the seller has done all the repairs and maintenance needed to ensure that the next owner won’t have any problems driving it. And even though it isn’t perfect, it is still a great classic hotrod.
With around 70,000 miles on its odometer, it is obvious that the previous owners have taken great care of this Ford coupe which is ready to hit the streets again. With its awesome hotrod look and a reliable drivetrain, this 1939 Ford hotrod is definitely a great classic ride that can be enjoyed on the road.
