To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Hershey event, 10 - 11 October 2019. Estimate:$40,000 - $50,000 Top-of-the-line Super DeLuxe in a pleasing color combinationOptioned with whitewall tires, radio, clock, and grille guardGreat club support through the Early Ford V-8 Club The 1941 Ford models featured an all-new design that replaced the teardrop styling that had been used since 1937. The new “square box” school of design continued until the slab-sided, shoebox Ford arrived in 1949. Gone, too, were the former Standard and DeLuxe models, replaced by Special, DeLuxe, and the top-of-the line Super DeLuxe series. All bodies, except for the convertible coupe and station wagons, were built at Ford’s plant. The convertible coupe, Type 76, was only available in the Super DeLuxe series and was constructed nearby at the Lincoln plant. At $950, sales were excellent, with 30,240 being produced. Buyers had a choice of leather interiors to match the exterior along with red or tan. Blue was added for the 1941 model year.Convertibles did not feature rear quarter windows, using instead a “caravan”-style top with large blank quarters in a choice of black or taupe canvas. In addition, twin electric motors serviced the convertible top. Gone was the old vacuum system, adding greatly to the convenience and ease of putting the top up and down. Super DeLuxe models were set apart from their lesser brethren by three front grille sections of cast chrome, painted wheels, and a stainless-steel bright molding between the fender halves. The wheelbase was increased from 112 to 114 inches, along with a revised suspension system and the largest brakes of any low-priced car. The ubiquitous flat-head V-8 was slightly modified to produce 90 hp.This Super DeLuxe is optioned with whitewall tires, radio, clock, and grille guard. It is finished in a pleasing color combination of Mayfair Maroon with a taupe canvas top and red interior. It has been used very little while in the possession of the consigner, who has kept it in climate-controlled storage.Please note that the photos for lots 386 and 387 were swapped in the printed catalogue and guide.
