The 1934 Ford continued along the path of great designs that would become milestones in many ways. The continued popularity of these cars allowed them to be recycled time and time again by subsequent owners who modified them to meet their specific needs, which most often resulted in visual and mechanical changes. Unmodified examples such as this roadster are highly sought after and truly appreciated for their raw essence, as provided by the Ford Motor Company. This restoration still presents brilliantly with few distractions. The dark saddle upholstery is in fine shape and only shows typical wear from light use. All Ford script glass is still in place, as are the typical DeLuxe accoutrement, such as dual external horns, a dual tail, and cowl lights. This high quality restoration has been driven sparingly and looks fantastic; whether on the road or at regional events, it will be universally admired.
