1934 Ford Custom 283 V8 4 Door Phaeton SOLD

West Coast Classics are proud to present an extraordinarily well built, crafted and customized 1934 Ford Model 40 DeLuxe 4 Door Deluxe Phaeton Convertible. The final year of the Ford Phaeton was in 1938 and there are very few known to be remaining in existence today!

Ford, more than any other automaker, continued to produce open cars into the thirties, even as sedans and coupes took more and more of the market. During the period, open cars with glass side windows, cabriolets and convertible sedans, gained market share at the expense of roadsters and Phaetons, but Ford kept the fully open cars in production. The last Ford roadster was built in 1937, and, perhaps surprisingly, the Phaeton lasted only one year longer. As befit their nature, open cars were offered only in the DeLuxe model line in 1938.

This 1934 CA titled Ford Model 40 Deluxe Phaeton is one of the rarest of that years body styles and has been very tastefully customized with no expense spared and drives incredibly well with a recently rebuilt Chevrolet 283 c. i Fuel Injection V8 engine with only 1, 823 miles matched to a 3 speed Chevy automatic transmission, the steel body is rust free throughout and all the body contours are correct, door gaps are even, and the doors shut well. Painted in a striking Red/ Maroon with a Tan color leather interior and a Black top.

The automotive breakthrough of the 1930s, Ford Motor Company introduced the V-8 in 1932 for its all-new 1932 models, offering the power, smoothness and prestige of more expensive cars. Matching Ford's renowned engineering was the V-8 Ford Model 48 line for 1935, restyled and a bit smaller and lower than the 1932-34 models. Ford promoted its 1935 line with the slogan: "Greater Beauty, Greater Comfort and Greater Safety."

Credit for the fresh new look from Ford rightly goes to Phil Wright, a Briggs Body Co. designer whose previous credits included the monumental Pierce-Arrow Silver Arrow. Among their winning design cues, the new-for-1935 Ford models featured a streamlined overall design theme with gently flowing fenders and radiator grille that was repositioned forward, yielding a more prominent and modernistic look. New horizontal hood louvers conveyed a vision of speed and aviation-inspired gracefulness. As always, a wide variety of body styles were offered, including the Tudor and sedans, the five-window coupe, three-window coupe, convertible sedan, "woody" station wagon, roadster, and even the new Model 51 truck with exceptionally handsome car-like styling.

The 1932 and 1934 Ford models have long overshadowed the later incarnations with a sophisticated and striking presence that have only grown more attractive with the passage of time. The Deluxe Phaeton is one of the rarest of any Fords built and by 1938 was the last year for no pillars between the doors.

This is the 1934 model 40 Deluxe Phaeton and one of the few remaining examples of the last in a legendary line, this car truly represents the end of an era and is wonderfully presented and driving example for the Ford enthusiast to enjoy or indeed any pre war period classic car collector.
