Ford Deluxe Tudor Sedan
All new sheet metal would grace the 1939 Ford Deluxe series, while new mechanical innovations were seen, such as improved engine cooling and the use of hydraulic brakes on all four wheels, despite Henry Ford's protest that mechanical units were better. The most popular body style in this year's Deluxe series was the Tudor sedan with 144,333 produced.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in September 2009 at the Petersen Automotive Museum, Los Angeles, California.
85 hp, 221 cu. in. Flathead V8, three-speed manual transmission, solid front axle with transverse leaf spring, semi-floating rear axle with transverse leaf spring, four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 112"
