1947 Ford Super Deluxe - Convertible
When WWII occurred it resulted in a section of time where new automobiles were no longer being produced. Production resumed for the 1946 model what was basically the same as the 1942 model except for the redesigned grill and widened hood. The most notable change came under the hood where they were now using the 239 motor which was previously reserved for trucks and Mercurys. The changes in 47 were very subtle but interestingly changes continued .....
throughout the year so a late 1947 and early 1947 actually have some differences. This 47 Ford Convertible is a great running classic that has been kept mostly all original. It is painted in a bright Yellow and the paint is in good condition. It pairs nicely with the Beige top which has been replaced at some point in the past. It is in good shape and you can tell it is rarely used because of how tight the fit is. The car looks great with it up and down. All of the chrome work is in good condition and has a nice shine. This was back in an era where cars wore a lot of trim all of which is in place on this car and looks good. The rear skirts give it the perfect vintage touch but are removable should you prefer the look without them. The car rolls around on the original steel wheels with Ford hubcaps and just wouldn't look right without those wide white wall tires.
Getting this classic rolling is the original style 239 cubic inch flathead V8. It starts up smoothly and settles into a nice idle. The car really does run well and doesn't seem to have any mechanical issues. It is fitted with an Offenhauser intake, Offenhauser heads, dual 2 barrel carbs, a custom air cleaner, and a Hildebrandt oil filter. Backing up the motor is a manual 3 speed transmission that shifts smoothly from the column.
The interior is in good condition with a split bench seat up front and bench in the rear. The upholstery is done in Black and is in good shape with no rips or tears. The dash has been kept all stock with the only modification being an underdash gauge pod for the amp, oil, and temp gauges. It has the original steering wheel with Ford horn ring. It also has an the old after market accessory Suicide knob or more formally a Brodie knob to one handed driving easier. The trunk is carpeted and offers plenty of additional storage space plus room for the spare. We lifted to the carpet to check the pans and everything is solid.
This is a really nice stock 47 that has a great look and is a fun cruiser. If you are in the market for a classic convertible definitely give this one a look.
