About This 1939 Ford FordorBelieve it or not, this Ford Fordor still wears its original Tuxedo black paint. The interior is also original. This car can actually be seen in the baseball movie The Natural with Robert Redford.
Over a period of six years, Gil Walters of Barker, New York continued to improve this original 1939 Ford to win best of class at the National meet, receiving 966 out of a possible 1,000 points and earning the National Dearborn Award for the survivor class.
This incredible piece of Americana has its original paint and interior although it looks as if it was restored at some point in its life, it is original. It is about as close to "as it left the factory" as a 1939 Ford can be.
Still powered by its original flat head V-8 engine and 3 speed manual transmission, this car also carries several original options such as fog lights, original roof top antenna and radio. It has the original glass, running boards, and wood grain dash.
This car also appeared in the move "The Natural" with Robert Redford.
Very nice original Tuxedo black paint and 100%
original interior make this time capsule the car one to own for the early vintage Ford collector.
Absolutely no accident damage or rust.
