1939 Ford Deluxe $124,995

Lithia Springs, GA Black · Flathead V8 · 395 miles
Have we forgotten what hot-rodding is all about? Cookie-cutter fiberglass rods with ordinary catalog parts, ho-hum detailing, and a me-too attitude? Is that really all there is? Hell no! One look at this incredible 1939 Ford Deluxe convertible coupe and you will feel rejuvenated, because there really are craftsmen out there who understand that unique doesnt have to mean outrageous and traditional is not only satin black. This car is arresting in person despite its low-key looks. Thats craftsmanship and detailing talking to you. Basic black is never a mistake, but using it here means this car stands out in a sea of red and yellow and orange rods and you dont quite know why. Ill tell you: perfect gaps, spectacular finish quality, and subtle details like the flush-mounted headlight lenses, simple stainless trim, and traditional touches like the one-piece chrome bumpers. Nobody will confuse it with a stock car, but there are so many modifications on this one that youll need a stock one next to it to find them all. Running boards were archaic but this car uses them to enhance its industrial-strength look and the rare Ford 2-passenger convertible coupe body style looks long and sleek without chopping and sectioning. Doing it right often means leaving the good stuff alone, and the guys at Goolsby Customs knew that all too well. With just under 400 miles on the build, its still almost new in every possible way, so if you want a turn-key show winner, well, here it is. The interior was done by the pros at M&M Interiors and again, subtlety was the key. As a cost-no-object build, its got a bunch of black leather on a trick bench seat and matching door panels that look period correct. The original dash is fitted with retro-looking gauges from Classic Instruments and the steering wheel is a suitably big banjo-style hoop. Tailored carpets, beautifully integrated A/C controls, and even a clock in the glove box lid all suggest that there was a plan, not just a guy ordering parts from a catalog. Theres a traditional manual gearbox, a 5-speed, which makes high-speed cruising effortless and the flathead under the hood never has to work too hard. There is no radio, but you wont miss it a bit simply because a well-tuned flathead is the best music there is and when you fold the black canvas convertible top, youll want to savor it. Speaking of the flathead, its a stout 8BA block filled with a Scat 4.25-inch crank and rods, an Isky cam, aluminum heads from Navarro, and a trick aluminum intake with a trio of Stromberg 97 carbs. Painted bright red, it sparkles against the black paint and anything that isnt painted got polished or chromed, so it has a show-quality look. The A/C compressor is neatly integrated into the front-end and theres a big radiator up front that eliminates any trace of flathead fever in this one. With the 5-speed manual transmission, its quick and nimble feeling yet relaxing on the highway and they obviously spent a lot of time on the exhaust to get just the right burble. The front suspension is a traditional solid axle but uses a trick sway bar setup while an 8-inch Ford out back hangs on leaf springs. Four-wheel disc brakes were fitted and yes, youre seeing that correctly, those are Pontiac 8-lug wheels painted sinister black and fitted with trick billet hubcaps. Fat General blackwall radials fill the fenders and add just the right touch of brawn. This is as good as hot rods get. Theres even more than the asking price wrapped up in the build and it shows everywhere you look. Yes, there are still some guys that get it and if youre a traditionalist who insists on the very best, well, I think youve just found it. Call now!
