“This is a rust-free all-steel body,” the listing states. The car’s coat of tan acrylic enamel was recently applied, too.

The Deluxe model was launched in 1938 to bridge the gap between Ford’s base model (or standard) and the higher-priced Lincoln vehicles of the era. There were a variety of body styles available over the model’s 13-year run including coupes, sedans, vans, convertibles, pickups, and station wagons. Many, if not most, were powered by the same 221cid V8.

In true restomod fashion, power for this coupe comes from a different source: a Chevrolet Camaro donor 327cid V8. This powerplant has been upgraded with an Offenhauser intake manifold, an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, cast iron exhaust manifolds, and new 12-volt wiring. Torque is sent rearward through a Turbo 350 three-speed automatic transmission and a General Motors 10-bolt rear end.
