While its models of the 1930s were immensely successful, Ford was not content to rest on its laurels. The highly successful introduction of the upscale new Mercury line for 1939 clearly demonstrated growing consumer demand for more passenger comfort and interior room and Ford responded with larger and more comfortable models of its own for 1941. Among the updates were wider bodies and the first wheelbase-length extension at Ford since 1933. The 1941 Ford models also marked the final expression of the successful design collaboration of company president Edsel Ford and Eugene T. “Bob” Gregorie.
At once stylish, handsome and comfortable, the all-new Ford models targeted a broad spectrum of the market in Standard, Deluxe, and Super Deluxe trim levels and helped Ford buyers put the painful Depression-era years behind them. Refined, better riding, and noticeably more comfortable, the 1941 models influenced Ford design through late 1948, when the company finally introduced its first all-new postwar model line. The 1941 Fords are also significant as the end of an era with company founder Henry Ford participating in his last model introduction when the 1941 models debuted in September 1940. Thanks to a robust economic upswing and the public’s acceptance of the new design, Ford production for calendar year exceeded 600,000 units.
Handsomely presented and very rare today, this 1941 Ford Deluxe Coupe is regarded among marque enthusiasts to be one of the finest examples in the country. Formerly part of the Grant Miller and Jeff Bernard Collections, it was acquired by Mr. Monical in 2011. Remaining very handsome with an older repaint on a near-perfect body, the sleek Ford retains the original engine, a smooth-running “24-stud” Flathead V-8, mated to a proper three-speed manual transmission. Excellent additional features include twin amber fog lamps and spotlights, period correct rear-fender skirts, and a rare set of wheel embellishers. Striking throughout, this rare 1941 Ford DeLuxe Coupe is simply an outstanding example of one of Ford’s most sporting and desirable models from the immediate pre-war era.
