HIGHLIGHTS: Look twice–this isn't a Phaeton! Glass window four door convertible! Classic color combination! Flathead V8 w/ three-speed on the floor! Beautiful, high-quality restoration!

BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this 1938 Ford Convertible is simply a dream—clean, straight, and solid. Having been kept in a private collection for over 25 years, this car has not seen abuse and the body condition shows that it has been cared for and driven on occasion since its restoration.

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: The dark blue paint accentuates this car's body styling cues, we think it looks fantastic on this car! With a brilliant shine, this car is very, very eye-catching. There are some very minor imperfections here and there that are typical of a car that has been restored for 25+ years, but this Ford presents more like a fresh restoration than anything else. The paint has a beautiful shine, and a deep gloss! There are some very light 'car duster' scratches that are typical of a show car that has been cleaned many times over the years.

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: Much like the exterior of this car, the interior is in beautiful condition showing extremely minimal signs of use. The dark saddle interior color is the perfect complement to the deep blue exterior. This car is comfortable to sit in, and presents astoundingly well for a restoration of this vintage.

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Though this car was restored in the mid-1990s, it still feels fresh! Under the hood is a good old Ford Flathead V8. Tried and true, the Flathead is a classic choice for powering a car like this! The engine sounds great and is more than enough power to have a blast behind the wheel of this four door convertible. This car runs great, sounds great, and really feel dialed in.

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The floor shifter and the fact that it's a glass window convertible!

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: This one is very challenging to nitpick.

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? The fuel gauge and radio are not operational.

WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Whether you've been collecting for years, or you're just looking to get into a blast from the past for the first time, this classic convertible Ford is sure to fit the bill!
