Warning, this car is a little street roddy! Been building this 39 Ford for the last couple years, kinda proud how it turned out so thought I'd show it off a little. Story is we built this car to flip, I've learned even though I like a lot of us on here like traditional cars buyers at the price point we need expect a few things that lean more to the street rod side of the hobby. So, we tried to keep it as old school as we could style wise even though it has a Mustang II front, auto, PS, A/C, ect, you know, all the creature comfort a lot of folks like. A couple years ago Rodder's Journal featured a bronze with white interior 41 Pickup that I fell in love with. I was building my 40 pickup at the time, didn't want to copy the one in the magazine on my truck but I did use it for inspiration on this car. Took the magazine to the painter, he came up with this custom mixed bronze, has enough pearl/ metallic to really show off the curves (cleavage?) as the light hits it. Same with the interior, took the magazine to the upholster, told him to match the truck interior. Body and interior are all pretty much as Henry built it other then a shaved hood latch, extra tail light. No shaved handles, frenched license, all that B/S that seems to be normal on "street rods" these days. I personally love 39 Standards (actually, I perfer them to Deluxes), can't really improve on what Henry did with it IMHO! FWIW, it does have some hot rod in it. I had Doug Anderson (he built the motor for Bombshell Betty's Bonneville records) build me a stought 351 Windsor for it. Doug is amazing, in his 70's, still working every day, been drag racing Fords since the 50's, still races his 427 Comet. He's been our local Ford motor guru forever and didn't dissappoint me on this one. Let's just say it has no problem keeping up with traffic! So, there you go. What do you guys think. Did I build a street rod that would appeal to this tough traditional crowd?
