A very special 1939 Ford Roadster, built by Dick Kraft, entered the collector car market this week by way of Classical Gas Motors in Texas. They report that after Kraft built it originally, it entered into the hands of veteran street rodder, Sid Cruce, whose previous work on a 1936 Ford Roadster netted it a $159,500 sale price from the Wayne Davis Collection. In 2003, it received a frame-off restoration which included a repaint in the original Mexicali Maroon.
A 86 ci Flathead V8 powers the vehicles and is comprised of a Eske cam, Ross pistons and an adjustable lifter, which are onl a few of the details available in the ad.
Goodguys awarded it the title of “Timeless Street Rod” at the Lonestar Nationals in 2006, which is only one of the accolades this car has. It’s been featured in “Hot Up” magazine as well, and has a complete documented history to add to its value.
This car has been SOLD.
