Classic Car Overview

This neat little 1939 Ford pickup is what owning a vintage truck is all about. Not content to be just another one of the guys at the car show, this beautifully restored hauler offers a gorgeous paint job, comfortable interior, and reliable Flathead V8 drivetrain that should carry this former California farm-to-market pickup well into the next century with proper care. The beige paint is what utilitarian trucks should always wear: nothing flashy, but with enough style to turn some heads now that its no longer an everyday workhorse. It was a favorite back in the day, despite Henry Ford being against anything other than black paints because they were expensive, and nobody will argue that it doesnt look right, managing to relax the blue-collar design into something that feels much more sophisticated. It was finished a few years ago to a very high standard and used as intended only sparingly sense, and although not a show truck, the finish and bodywork are both incredibly nice and uniform throughout. There are a couple very minor blemishes, of course, but none of them do anything to diminish the appeal of this pickup. The sheetmetal is all Henry Ford steel that hasnt been modified, shaved, or cut up in any way, so it still wears its original barrel-shaped grille and classic good looks that have remained popular for decades. Nothing has been chopped either, so it has an old-fashioned look thats quite appealing, and with the natural lines on the body, it looks like it should cost far more than it does. During the comprehensive restoration the electrical system was upgraded to include blinkers and dual taillights, and the headlights are newer units that shine bright, so youll never have to worry about getting this truck home before the sun goes down on the horizon. The bed floor is wood, and even though its incredibly durable, its so nice youll think twice before tossing any old gear back there. Bright chrome, including the bumpers and grille, as well as painted Ford V8 details on the tailgate and Ford badges on the hood sides, make this truck really sparkle against the beige paint. Pickup trucks in 1939 were a far cry from todays leather-lined luxury machines, offering the bare essentials for doing their jobs. This Ford has durable materials and no-nonsense styling inside, starting with the wide bench seat wrapped in comfortable upholstery with a grain that looks pretty authentic. Heavy-duty black carpets mean class the cabin up a bit and provide good insulation and the round rubber pedals have a stylish look despite being business-only. The original round gauges were sent off to a professional to be restored before they were reinstalled, and they cover all the engines vitals and have a wonderful art-deco look that shows stylists still cared about making them beautiful, even though they were in a truck. The long-travel 3-speed manual floor shifter shifts smoothly once you get acclimated, but youll master it easily enough, and the big hard rubber steering wheel gives you a lot of leverage on the unassisted steering to make handling feel agile around town. A cowl vent and a crank-open windshield provide the air-conditioning, and while theres no radio, the smooth sound of the Flathead V8 should be music to your ears when its cruising down an old country road. The real joy of a 30s Ford of any kind is under the hood. Fords 337 Flathead V8 is a joy to drive, torquey, energetic, and with a distinctive engine note, its no surprise that theyve been a favorite for eighty years. Everything points to this being the trucks original engine, and it was fully attended to during the restoration, right down to the 6-volt electrical system and classic Ford Green paint on the block. An original 2-barrel carburetor feeds the hungry block, while a newer exhaust system likely adds a few horsepower and delivers a great soundtrack. The suspension is still stock, with leaf springs and solid axles all around, and Henry Ford finally agreed to use hydraulic brakes in 1939, so stopping power is decent. Fat 215/70/16 blackwall radials are wrapped on black spider artillery wheels with beige trim rings and restored hub caps to complete the flashy old pickup. This little Ford pickup is a great opportunity to own a slice of Americana and have some fun with a V8-powered pre-war vehicle. Call today!
