I think you will find they all have been converted. I have seen several around but never one that left the factory that way.

"Oddly enough, however, Chevrolet did not offer a cabriolet for 1939. Perhaps this omission should come as no surprise, since only 2,787 of the ragtops had been sold during the 1938 season, but it could hardly have pleased the dealers, who often liked to keep a convertible on the floor as a showroom attraction."

HowStuffWorks "1939 Chevrolet"

http://home.znet.com/c1937/Prod.htm

There is zero at the production of Cabrolets for 1939.

Here is a discussion. 1939 chevy convertible...need some infornation plz - VCCA Chat

They mention that the 39 Holden was offered as a Roadster so some of the 39 Chevy's seen may be Holden Roadsters?

Here's a Holden 1939 Chevy Convertible. Here's a non-Holden 39 Chevrolet Convertible. But Dennis Albaugh doesn't have one in his collection and he's got every other year.............

Ah Hah!! According to the world renown The Free Dictionary " Having a top that can be folded back or removed: a convertible automobile." Does a roadster not have a removable top?

But in the free dictionary located at any swap meet or car show, a car with roll up windows and a folding top is a convertible or cabriolet while a car without roll up windows is a roadster.

Generaly speaking a cabriolet or convertable has roll up windows. A roadster has no windows or uses side curtains for protection from the elements. A convertable sedan is a four door convertable with roll up windows and a phaeton is a four door which like a roadster does not have roll up door windows.

If they are Fords, they are all beautifull.

Correct but more importantly, if you have a '53 Vette, you are a very lucky fellow.
