1939 Fords are always popular, but they’re seldom as sinister-looking as this matte black coupe. With a small block Chevy V8, overdrive transmission, a nicely finished interior, and barely any miles on this whole build, this might be your first, last, and only opportunity to get the fresh ’39 you’ve always wanted. Here’s your favorite moonshiner. The extended trunks of these business coupes were a favorite of liquor-running outlaws. And in this case, the this one has a dark presentation that’s perfect for slipping through the midnight air. Then again, with all mirror-like brightwork on the 1940 Ford grille, headlights, and running the full-length of the body, you’ll easily reflect any spotlights. But more than just the cool moonshiner legacy, you want this one because its style is perfect for the matte black presentation. The next generation Ford would carry a softer design language with a more rounded front end and less pronounced fenders. So this aggressively sharp-nosed coupe has always been the perfect one to get the street rod treatment. This speedy image is heightened by the forward leaning stance and 14/15-inch front/rear staggered wheels. It makes this one look like it is just itching to sprint, even when standing still. Inside there was plenty invested to give this vintage businessman’s coupe modern convenience. The single bench seat up front was upgraded to two leather buckets that have real bolstering for all-day comfort. You and your passenger will enjoy the modern comforts like the pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo and provisions for R134a air conditioning. In fact, this one was built to make sure you have a comfortable driving experience, too. There’s a tilt steering column with a grippy GM sports wheel. On the dash, there’s a new set of classic-style gauges so you get a crisp layout without changing the vintage appearance. Under the hood is a solid investment in polished component like the air topper, alternator, compressor, bracer bar, pulleys, and so much more that looks great reflecting within the dark engine bay. And the way the etching color in the valve covers matches the bold block color is another great sign of a thoughtful build. When you look beyond the style, you’ll see the substance of a 350 cubic-inch V8 that has been upgraded with go-fast goodies like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Weiand intake, and a large aluminum radiator to keep it all running cool. This give a sweet sound to the dual exhaust that’s worthy of this ’39’s heritage. And as we’ve hinted at before, this custom coupe is truly built to be a driver. That’s why you have power steering, front disc brakes, and an upgraded Mustang II-style independent front suspension. Plus, the transmission has been upgraded to a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive. So combined with the extra lager trunk, this is the classic that actually has some nice road-trip ability.
