Vehicle Story

This 1939 Ford 5-Window Coupe underwent a nut-and-bolt restoration commissioned by the prior owner, a California car collector who purchased the vehicle from Volo Auto Museum. Power is provided by the original 221ci “Flathead” V8, which was rebuilt by Doug Clem out of Nevada, and it is mated to a manual transmission. The body is finished in Folkston Gray over a gray cloth interior, and suspension upgrades provide ride quality. This Coupe is offered with a clean Montana title in the seller’s name.

A Folkstone Gray respray was applied during the restoration, and the finish is complemented by chrome brightwork, split windshield and rear window, vertical grille, teardrop headlamps, and more. Exterior work was carried out by Tims Rod Shop in Sacramento, California.

Whitewall tires are mounted on factory bottlecap wheels with chrome beauty rings and “V8” center cap badges. Additional photos showing the exterior are provided in the gallery.

The bench seat is covered in gray cloth with white piping, and the base color is carried to the door panels and carpet. Other features include a wood grain dash with a passenger-side clock, a gray banjo style steering wheel, and a floor-mounted shifter.

Instrumentation consists of a 100-mph speedometer and gauges for oil pressure, battery charge, fuel level, and engine temperature. 329 miles are indicated on the odometer, which represents mileage since completion of the restoration. Total mileage is unknown.

The original 221ci “Flathead” V8 was rebuilt by renowned flathead specialist Doug Clem in Nevada and is mated to a manual transmission.

QA1 shocks have been added, additional photos of the undercarriage are provided in the gallery.

Receipts and documentation from the restoration are included in the sale.

@ramsheadck – I have to chime in here as I know this car. It is like seeing an old friend! I knew the CA collector the seller mentions. He was a good car friend in the area and a high end collector at that. I remember seeing the car a few years back as he had just completed it and it had around 60 miles on it at the time. Judging by the odometer now, this seller has used it very sparingly. I have to say it is a stunning high quality restoration. My pal did not do anything halfway, it was all or nothing. He took a really nice driver quality car and had it completely torn down and restored. I recall he had north of 90 K or so into it! The pictures do not do it justice! Tims Hot rods here in Sacramento did the car for my pal and what an amazing job they did. I have seen many of these era fords in my line of work and this is by far the nicest one I've seen. Good luck to the seller and whomever the buyer ends up being. Bid with confidence, you WILL NOT be disappointed! -Cheers, CK ...

What an amazing compliment. It is awesome hearing from someone that knew this car and the owner when it was done. I have heard the same story from Tim at Tim's Hot Rods and Doug Clem, the man that did the motor. They both stated that the man that owned this car would not cut any corners to try and save a dollar. Judging by the quality of this car and the $105K in receipts that I have it must be true. Again, thank you so much for taking the time to comment. Hope you have a very blessed day.

@huckbolt94 – I've been looking for a 39 for a while. This is the nicest one I have come across. ...

WOW!! Thank you very much. I agree but then again I am a little bias.
