Following the close of World War II, as design and development work feverishly progressed on the upcoming 1949 Ford models, which would soon take place as the first new postwar designs from Dearborn, production of the basic 1942 line continued virtually unchanged through the 1948 model year. Changes were limited to careful and detailed refinements for 1947, including elimination of the red tracer paint on the radiator grille, a hood-mounted emblem was adopted, and parking lights were reconfigured with an attractive new circular shape. While Ford Motor Company had adopted a “back to business” stance during the immediate postwar years, the year 1947 was particularly noteworthy with the passing on April 7, 1947 of company founder Henry Ford, the man who quite literally put the world on wheels.

As before, the Super Deluxe model line occupied the pinnacle of the Ford model line for 1947, in both six- and V-8 flavors. However, while the Super Deluxe Six was available along five body styles, the top V-8 models numbered seven in all, including the Four- and Two-door Sedans, Two-door Coupe Sedan, Two-door/Three-Passenger Coupe, steel-bodied Convertible and the Sportsman “woodie” Convertible, and Four-door/Eight-Passenger Station Wagon. The steel-bodied Super Deluxe V-8 Convertible was a particularly important model for 1947, combining traditional Ford value for the money with robust V-8 power and a dash of glamorous optimism to put the grim war years into the distant past.

This very original and correct example of the car that made the Flathead V-8 famous is cosmetically excellent and reported by the consignor to run well and as it should. It even comes with its genuine Ford Operators Manual, dated September 7th, 1947. Proving that this car is in great condition, the Antique Automobile Club of America awarded it a National First Prize in Class at an AACA National Meet. Driving this 1947 Ford Super Deluxe V-8 Convertible takes one back to the energy and optimism of the postwar years, when the Greatest Generation returned from wartime service to build families and build their own version of the American Dream. Glen Miller and Duke Ellington play on the radio as you take the wheel and, with the top down, the breezes bring a tangible sense of well-being.
