When a rare 1942 Ford Sedan Delivery was chosen as Saturday’s Deal of the Day on the internet, it became a history lesson for Cars-On-Line.com newsletter readers. The popular classic car newsletter was published on Friday. However, street rodders probably know that the “delivery” was a sedan built to look like a delivery.
History buffs will remember that automotive production in the U.S. was shut down in 1942 to convert automobile plants for military production when World War II began. That meant that Ford and other manufacturers did not make many 1942 models. This week a hot rodder from Rancho Cucamonga, California has listed a 1942 Ford Sedan Delivery for sale. It looks as if it was a 2-door sedan made into a sedan delivery style custom vehicle. He says it has a small block Chevy with a 700R4 overdrive transmission, with power steering, cold air conditioning, cruise control, power windows, shaved door handles and Mustang II front disc brakes. You’ll like the Smoothie wheels and frenched headlights.
The reason it was chosen as Deal of the Day for Saturday is that the asking price is only $27,000. That is a relatively low price for a street rod of this quality. Just look at the photos. It has Bluetooth and a nice custom interior.
As prices continue to trend downward in the collector car market, more incredible deals turn up every week. The Deal of the Day preview gives you first shot at all the cars that will be featured in the Deal of the Day feature on the Cars On Line home page. Often these cars sell in the newsletter before they even make it to the home page! You’ll always see them in the newsletter first though.
