1938 Ford 81A Deluxe Convertible Sedan
STREET DREAMS TEXAS
Fredericksburg, TX 78624
Welcome to StreetDreamsTexas as we celebrate our 20th year in the classic and muscle car business. Here's another rare and beautiful blast from the past brought to you by the Texas Hill Country's premier source of classic automobiles. Feast your eyes on this stunning Zephyr Beige 1938 Model 81A Deluxe Convertible Sedan, one of a mere 2,743 ever produced. And while she retains all of the beauty of an original prewar classic, there are a few subtle upgrades that vastly improve the driving experience. Beneath the sculpted hood rests a period correct flathead V8 that was bored, stroked, and balanced by Flathead City in Grants Pass, Oregon and fortified with Offenhauser aluminum heads, an Offenhauser aluminum intake manifold, a Holley QFT Slayer 4bbl carburetor, electronic ignition, an 80 Amp. alternator (12v conversion), and a custom OPL aluminum radiator with a SPAL fan. The product of these carefully matched components is the smoothest, most tractable 200 hp flathead we've ever experienced. Also, the clutch assembly, 3-speed manual transmission, and the brake system have all been rebuilt with NOS parts. A Vintage Air A/C, heat, and defroster unit will keep you comfortable in any weather, while the turn signals and halogen headlamps offer increased safety. With plentiful power, a smooth chassis, and good vehicle dynamics, this beauty is an absolute pleasure to drive. Finally, how many of the original 2,743 examples do you suppose have survived 81 years in this condition?!
