Hi, my name is bob and I have a 1939 Ford Convertible. it runs a ford 5.0l EFI, c4 trans, mustang diff. IFS.etc. If I could figure out how to attach a photo I would. The car is an Australian convert which differ from US models, they are basically 37 ford roadster bodies with 39 deluxe cowle and front sheet metal.
The car has been on the road for three years now with 10,000 miles of trouble free touring. There are some improvements I would wish to make in the suspension area and in body rigidity to make for a more cruisier ride.

I built the car from a body which originally resided in Western Australia, it came in two pieces on a box trailer and suffice to say my wife was not all that impressed with my purchase. It took about four years to complete with all but the painting and trim being done by myself at home.

My interest in old cars goes back some 30 years, having had 48 morris, 26 overland whippet,28 dodge, 39 ford sedan and a 32 ford sport coupe prior to the convert.

I hope this gives some introduction to the web site

cheers, bob.

Welcome to the site bobs39. Those fat fendered convertibles are great cars. About 42 years ago I had a chance to buy two 40 Ford convertibles for $50.00. They were in pretty bad shape and I passed them up because I was told that it would take both of them to make one. If someone looked at either one of them with today's eyes they would say they were in excellent shape for their years. Good luck upgrading your project.
