Redesigned for 1941, the new Ford models set the tone for the company’s passenger cars through late 1948, when the company finally introduced its first all-new postwar design. The 1941 models are also historically significant, marking the final cars designed by Edsel Ford and Eugene T. “Bob” Gregorie, since Mr. Ford would soon pass away in 1943 and Mr. Gregorie would briefly leave Ford Motor Company during the infamous Harry Bennett years. As related in an interview given by Mr. Gregorie, the redesign of the Ford and Mercury lines for 1941, he said, “We had so much of that pointy effect…that we decided to pursue a fresh-looking effect – a fuller, rounder, more bloated and horizontal effect,” continuing “I sold Mr. Ford on the horizontal effect.”
The 1941 Fords also marked the ending of another era, with company founder Henry Ford participating in his last new-car press introductions during mid-September 1940. The sporty Convertible Coupe, only available as a top-of-the-line Super Deluxe model, was Ford’s prestige model for 1941 and it helped American buyers put the lean 1930s firmly into the distant past.
This highly attractive 1941 Ford Super DeLuxe Convertible Coupe was acquired by Bobby Monical in 2010 and it clearly continues to benefit from a detailed, high-quality restoration that was completed during the mid-1990s, followed by proper maintenance and climate-controlled storage. Accented by a number of highly desirable period accessories, this lovely 1941 Ford includes a grille guard and it retains a desirable set of deluxe wheel-trim rings that were only offered on Super DeLuxe models and largely lost over time, plus a correct center-mount radio antenna. All chrome and bright trim remains excellent, as does the paint finish, notwithstanding a minor but age-appropriate patina commensurate with a well-maintained older restoration. Similarly, the well-restored burgundy leather interior maintains its factory-correct appearance with proper care clearly evident and dash and gauges all in good condition. Rare factory accessories include an AM radio, heater, and clock. The correct red door panels present beautifully too. Underhood is the venerable Ford “Flathead” V-8 engine which, along with the transmission, remains in excellent order from servicing prior to, and following, Mr. Monical’s acquisition of the car. Extraordinary both in terms of its scarcity and condition, this 1941 Ford Super DeLuxe Convertible Coupe delivers an outstanding opportunity to own a landmark prewar vehicle that is ready to show, tour, and enjoy.
