1947 Ford V8 Club Convertible

1947 Ford V8 Club Convertible - Details

This car has an interesting history. In 1947, it was delivered new to the U.S. Embassy in China, where it spent much of its life. We have information on file to document this. Car was equipped with heavier suspension due to the rough roads in China at the time.

The car came equipped from the Ford factory with a metric speedometer. After the car’s return to the U.S., a conventional miles-per-hour speedometer replaced the metric speedometer, which was saved, and is still in the trunk of this car. Combined and documented original mileage is only about 32,000.

This Super-Deluxe club convertible was recently repainted in original Tucson Tan and has a powerful 100HP, 239 cubic inch Ford Flathead Engine with 3-speed manual transmission. Car has wide whitewall tires and the spare and jack are mounted in the trunk area, which is spotless. Mechanically this car runs quietly and “as-new”, and sports an original leather interior made by LeBaron-Bonney. Front floor mat and trunk mat are made of black rubber (as original) and rear seat area is carpeted.
