1938 Ford Deluxe Tudor Sedan
Model Year History Overview:
For 1939, Ford instituted a two-tier model line. The previous year’s Deluxe body was retained for this year’s Standard series, while the Costlier models were given an entirely new look. In 1938 the romantic roadster was gone, and the stately Phaeton (4-door Convertible) was making its last stand. The rumble-seat models were also in their last year. Styling was a warmed over version of the 1937. The grill/hood section became more bulbous, and the Standards were saddled with a fulsome swept-back grill. The small 60 horsepower V-8 engine was available in just three body styles: coupe, four-door sedan and a two-door sedan.
This car is all original with the exception of the hydraulic brakes and dual Smithy mufflers. In 1982 it had a frame-up restoration including a professional black paint job. The original seats still reside under a cover of clear plastic and looks as new. All wood graining was done also. All chrome, stainless and glass is in excellent condition. Original wiring harnesses were replaced with modern fabric covered type at the time of restoration. New glove box, front floor mat and kick panels. Less than 150 miles ago it underwent a complete “Tune-up” including new battery, plugs, plug wires, distributor, ignition coil, condenser, water pumps and fan belt.
