Description

1941 Ford Super Deluxe Coupe

In mid-September 1940, Henry Ford - in his last appearance at a new car introduction - received 500 reporters to see the new 1941 Ford models. True to form, he said little, but the car said a lot about the company's willingness to go with the flow. The 1941's were the first of the ""fat"" Fords, with a clean contemporary look that was right in tune with the era. Further, Ford now even offered a flathead six, a clear concession to the competition.

For consignment, a custom Ford Super Deluxe coupe with a touch of lead sled modded looks. Built in 1965 from an original rust free car and now sporting a Motor City Flathead 8BA engine, (239 cubes to be exact), to make it loud and proud. An all-steel car, all buttoned up with just the right amount of custom touches for the aero look.

Exterior
Bathed in what the consignor believes is the original coating of black, we see straight slab steel panels, rounded front quarters, and a small running board connecting to a smaller rear fender. Rounded is the key word for the design of this car from the shaved front bumper to the blingy chrome rear bumper are nothing but curvaceous curves. A tall 86 louvered front hood floats above the vertical ribbed V curved grille, and dual side grilles flanking it. Headlights are embedded into the front fenders and some chromed bullet style turn signals flanking the lights and are next to the grille. Aftermarket full fender skirts have been added in the rear fenders giving that low and slow tail dragging look. On the rear are single rectangle tail lights with chrome bezels and blue dots and are drenched into the rear quarters on either side. A rounded trunk which is very spacious and labeled the ""Moonshin'R"" in pinstripe script is between the tail lighting. Rounded corner side windows with swan style mirrors and Appleton faux spotlights and a rear oval window are noted, cut onto the body. Just below the rear bumper are dual shiny tail pipes peeking out from underneath the bumper. 15-inch steel wheels have Cadillac wheel covers on the 4's and these are wrapped in medium whites all around.

Interior
A swing of the large doors and we can shake hands with a large white naugahyde panel for the door complete with vertically ribbed tuck and roll inserts and maroon bakelite echuons for the chrome cranks and pulls. The sills are painted in maroon over the steel and look just fab. Looking towards the seats, we note white bolsters and white naugahyde inserts. There is a framing of whitepiping which blends nicely with the like new white naugahyde. The rear bench sprawls from side panel to side under the oval window and appears to never have been sat in. Towards the dash we scan a full metal jacket black steel dash, complete with its original gauge cluster looking gold, aged, and in art deco styling. This runs the length of the dash and in the center is some horizontal ribbed grating. A trio of aftermarket gauges hangs below this nice dash and growing from the dash is a Ford Fairlane steering column and wheel with a tachometer strapped on for good measure. A Lokar shifter reaches for the driver's hand, and all this is floating in a sea of maroon carpeting with complimentary white piping. Above is a white headliner white maroon ribbing, nice and tight.

Drivetrain
A lift of the big bulbous louvered hood, and we have engine bling bling blinding us. It's now a Motor City Flathead 8BA V8 which specs out at 239ci. This has beautiful early production Motor City Flathead ribbed aluminum cylinder heads and yellow wiring snakes its way to each cylinder, and nice supple hoses are all over this engine. The Edelbrock manifold has an Edelbrock 500cfm 4-barrel carburetor topping it and a 3/4 race cam has been installed. On the back is a newer Borg Warner 5-speed manual transmission that was installed a few years ago, replacing the former 49 Ford truck 3-speed. A Ford 9-inch rear axle has been put on and weighs in with a 3.73 ratio.

Undercarriage
All very clean and rust free with a solid drilled X frame supporting the car with ease. Floor pans and rockers are very nice as are toe kicks and inner fenders. A transverse leaf spring front end suspension and a leaf spring rear suspension are seen, as are drum brakes on both ends. A clean exhaust with Smithy's mufflers snakes its way from the Fenton headers attached to the engine to the rear and peeks out the underside on the rear with chromed tips.

Drive-Ability
A quick fire up and I was off to the test track where this car performed flawlessly. Plenty of power, seats were comfortable, and nice storage space if I needed it. This car corners well and comes to a quick stop. Steering is not power, but steers easily even in tight slow-moving spaces. All controls were in working order, and the engine idled with a wonderful gurgle, awaiting the tap of your right toe!

Here we have a custom car, modded with a beautiful looking and powerful Motor City Flathead V8, with added bling, eye candy interior and solid steel black exterior in beautiful, sculpted round form. Even the glass is round, and all is well with this Super Deluxe coupe from 1941...but it can cut the mustard when needed. A sleeper?? Oh yeah, pass me the shine!
