Description:

Flathead Fords are still some of the most entertaining old cars you can own. Quick, agile, handsome, and rugged, cars like this 1947 Ford Super Deluxe coupe have been favorites for decades because they do everything well and look great doing it. Restored by someone who cared about making things right, this lovely Dove Gray coupe looks like it just rolled out of an old black and white photograph from the late-40s. The basic profile is pretty much the same opera coupe that Ford was building before the war, but the wide, smooth front end gives it a clean, grown-up look is one of Ford''s better designs. Paint and bodywork were restored to a very high level and the light gray paint job looks appropriate on the old Ford''s graceful curves. Instead of metallic two-stage urethane, it has a softer shine that looks like period enamel more than modern paint, another sign that the guys who restored it cared about making it right. Panel fit is excellent, the big pointed hood fits well, and the light color reveals neat details like the body lines around the fender trim and the oval rear window. Lots of stainless trim and a few chrome bits, all of which has been restored and sparkles brightly against the light gray paint. There''s a surprising amount of room in the fully restored interior. Gray cloth upholstery has a very 1940s look and the patterns are simple and unpretentious. Matching door panels, carpets, and headliner give it a correct look and all the garnish moldings have been painted to match the body. The instrument panel has a large, round speedometer and four smaller auxiliary gauges, all with a jaunty ''40s font, and there''s a matching clock in front of the passenger. Radios were still expensive options in 1947, but this one does carry an under-dash heater/defroster unit that should be quite effective. The steering wheel was restored in contrasting gray, which isn''t exactly correct but looks great, and the chrome center grille where the radio would be housed shines up brightly. The trunk is positively massive, with cardboard side panels and a matching full-sized spare tire on a color-matched wheel. But the real reason these cars are perennial favorites is the 239 cubic inch flathead V8 under the hood. It''s rated at just 100 horsepower, but it feels like much more than that out on the road. Inhaling through the stock 2-barrel carburetor and oil bath air cleaner, it has a distinctive sound that Ford fans have loved for years. Twin coolant hoses from the cylinder heads give it a nice, symmetrical look and later flatheads like this finally had their distributors moved to the top of the engine where they were easier to service. The generator up top has been upgraded to 12 volts, so the old flathead hard starting problems are eliminated, but otherwise it''s quite stock. The 3-speed manual transmission with column-mounted shifter has well-chosen ratios to make the most of the V8s power band and the original banjo-style rear end hangs out back. The undercarriage is clean and neatly detailed and it''s always nice to see an old car riding on correct bias-ply tires for the right look. Very affordably priced, this 1947 Ford is one of those great old cars that will make you smile every time you fire it up. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
