Hailed as one of the most attractive vehicles ever produced, and a favorite with rodders and customizers from the beginning, the ’41 Ford remains a styling icon. Lucky to escape the clutches of a hot rodder or the heat of a torch, this business coupe remains largely stock, with only updates for driving. It has been restored with maroon paint and has a straight body with good door fit and quality stainless trim. The front and rear bumpers have been re-plated, and the interior sports all new fabrics and material, while the dash and gauges and trim remain original. The engine compartment is also a combination of correct hoses and clamps, along with newer plug wires and electrical wiring. Notable features include new safety glass with rubber, Firestone wide whitewalls, chrome bumper guards and wing tips, a dual exhaust, factory clock, AM radio, and under-dash Arvin heater. This Ford has plenty to offer to the first time old car buyer or the Ford enthusiast seeking an example less-common than other coupes and sedans.
