STK 3253 1938 Ford Phaeton

This 1938 Ford Phaeton convertible is from the collection of the late Ford restoration specialist Dennis Carpenter here in Concord, North Carolina. The Phaeton was very rare - only 1,169 were manufactured in '38, the last year for this model. This Ford was the beneficiary of a professional restoration by the Carpenter team in 2013. A fresh coat of Sheridan Blue was applied and it looks amazing. All chrome is outstanding with accents that include the classic '38 hood ornament, dual mirrors and a near perfect tan convertible top. Steel wheels with 'V8' hubcaps, trim rings and wide-white Firestone 6.00 x 16 bias-ply tires complete the exterior package. The interior is completely restored with seating that is upholstered in handsome pleated button/tufted brown leather that looks much better than new. A stunning wood dash holds factory gauges and a functional AM radio behind a beautiful classic 'banjo' wheel. Every detail is finished to perfection. The Ford is powered by a 221ci flathead V-8 factory rated at 85hp. This flathead was completely rebuilt in 2013 with upgrades that include an Isky performance cam, Fenton exhaust headers and stainless dual exhaust system. It runs as smooth as silk, likely produces substantially more horsepower than original and is backed by a 3-speed manual transmission w/factory floor mounted shifter. The 6-volt electrical system, also performs very well. A fully restored, spotless chassis mounts front/rear transverse leaf spring suspension and mechanical brakes have been upgraded to 4-wheel hydraulic drum units. The Ford is also equipped with a Columbia 2-speed rear differential that provides two final drive ratios for town/highway. This pristine '38 Ford Phaeton will certainly be the centerpiece of your Blue Oval garage. ALL VEHICLES SOLD “AS IS”.
