“I will tell you what a dandy car you make…even if my business hasen’t [sic] been strickly [sic] legal, it don’t [sic] hurt to tell you what a fine car you got in the V-8.”

That high praise is reportedly from Clyde Barrow, of Bonnie and Clyde fame, in a hand-written letter to Henry Ford from Tulsa, Oklahoma dated April 10, 1934.

This 1934 Ford Deluxe Fordor has led a better life than the one those two met their fate in, but the praise is the same. Ford’s Models 18 and 40 continued to build on the success laid by the Models T and A in earlier decades. This example has been treated to a frame-off restoration and it looks like it is fresh from a showroom floor.

This stunning 1934 Ford Deluxe was a recipient of a frame off restoration dressed in white, the car’s paint and trim are in overall excellent condition. The bodywork is straight and solid, and the engine bay is extremely tidy while there is a Potters trunk and a rear-mounted spare tire and wheel. The chrome bumpers fit tightly to the body. There is only a windshield wiper (inop) on the driver’s side, but the car does have dual taillamps, along with cowl lights and dual horns.

This car rolls on BFG Silvertown tires, size 6.00-16 at every corner and each tire is mounted on a factory wire wheel. The tires are in good, original order while the wheels are in very good shape. The car rides on a 112-inch wheelbase.

Under the hood is Ford’s venerable Flathead V-8. Here it is the 221 CID version with 21 studs. It is married to a three-speed, sliding-mesh manual transmission and backed with a 4.11:1 rear end.

Inside, the black cloth interior is the perfect complement to the exterior. The front and rear bench seats are in overall excellent order, as is the neutral headliner and the two-spoke, black steering wheel. The inner door panels are in similar order, as is the white metal instrument panel with an array of Classic Instruments, but the speedo/odometer are inop. A floor-mounted shifter completes the interior.

The 1934 Ford (the Model 40B) was not as substantial a model year change as the previous two years had been. Noticeable changes included a flatter grille with a wider surround and fewer bars, straight hood louvers, two handles on each side of the hood, smaller head lights and cowl lamps, and a reworked logo. The bare metal dash insert was replaced by painted steel.

V‑8 output was again increased and there were 14 body options, the Tudor being top-seller. Deluxes had pinstriping, again twin (chromed) horns and twin back lights. Inside, they got more elaborate wood graining.

Competition to this Ford in 1934 included Dodge’s Six Series Dr, Ford’s DA Master Series Club Sedan, Hudson’s Challenger Series LTS Sedan, Nash’s Lafayette Series 110 Sedan with trunk, Plymouth’s De Luxe PE series Sedan and Pontiac’s Eight Series 603 Sedan and Terraplane’s K Series Trunk Sedan.

om Ford
Ford, som grundades 1902, har utan tvekan förändrat historien om bilvärlden mer än någon annan biltillverkare genom att införa de första folkbilen Modell T 1908. De hade producerat mer än 15 miljoner bilar i slutet av produktionen 1927, genom vilket T hade blivit föråldrade.

Ford lanserade den första lågpris V8-motor driven bil 1932. 1932 V8 var en omedelbar hit med överlägsen hantering och prestanda för många betydligt mer expansiva bilar av dagen. Inte undra på 32 V8 Ford har blivit en sådan favorit bland heta rodders runt om i världen med 32 Deuce Coupe som sin ikon.

Under kriget Ford helt stänga civil bilproduktionen att ägna alla sina resurser till de allierade krigsansträngningarna (1942-1945) De används för att bygga B-24 bombplan, flygmotorer, jeepar, M-4 stridsvagnar, militära lastbilar och Bren-gun bärare och mer än 30.000 super laddade Rolls Royce Merlin V-12 motorer till Mosquito och Lancaster bombplan samt P-51 Mustang fighters. Efter kriget Ford bilar i USA blev större och flashier tillsammans med sina konkurrenter. I 60: s Ford var tillbaka i förgrunden igen när man inför deras kommersiella hit Mustang 1964. Mustang var så populär tävlingen var tvungen att följa Fords exempel och ponycar fenomenet tog över USA. Under åren ponnyer växte några muskler tills oljekrisen döda äntligen dödat dem.

På sextiotalet rusade Ford i internationell motorsport scenen med en raseri. Efter misslyckade Ferrari övertagande, då Enzo Ferrari hade klippt affären av med Henry Ford II gör det senare absolut koka av vrede, vände Ford till Lola i Storbritannien för att producera en Ferrari slog långdistans racer efter. Samarbetet mellan Ford och Lola skapade den mäktiga Ford GT40 som absolut slog Ferrari i Le Mans 24 flera gånger.

I Europa införde Ford några av de mest episka race och rallybilar av 60-talet som bygger på ödmjuka familj sedaner; Cortina GT, Lotus Cortina, Escort Twin Cam, och Escort 1600RS med de ikoniska Cosworth BDA motorer.
