Ford Deluxe Five-Window Coupe
Ford touted, “Greater Beauty, Greater Comfort, and Greater Safety” for the 1935 models. Clad with nearly every accessory offered, as well as some speed equipment. Additional notable items included a rear-mounted spare, a luggage rack, dual cowl lights, mirrors, Ford fog lamps and external horns, a dual exhaust, Fenton headers, an aluminum intake, and a Columbia two-speed rear axle. This coupe’s rarity, popularity, and character certainly make it highly desirable.
85 hp, 221 cu. in. flathead V-8 engine, single two-barrel Stromberg downdraft carburetor, Fenton headers, three-speed sliding gear manual transmission, front and rear transverse spring suspension, and four-wheel mechanical brakes. Wheelbase: 121 in.
