PreWorld War II Fords are becoming harder to find but we have one at MotoeXotica Classic Cars. We are pleased to offer this 1935 Model 48 DeLuxe Tudor Sedan. This car has been in Missouri since it was bought new and with the same loving owner for the past 36 years, since 1982
Dressed in Vineyard Green, this cars paint and trim are in overall excellent condition. The green is very eyecatching. The bodywork is straight and solid, including the rubberized roof, which was commonly used then, and the chrome bumpers, which are in very good order.
This 48 wears Goodyear Deluxe AllWeather tires, size 6.0016 at all four corners. They are mounted on bodycolored Ford wire wheels with chrome center caps, the left front window has a crack. The tires and wheels are all in very good condition.
Under the veed hood is Fords 221 CID Flathead V8 engine. 1935s 48 V8 saw compression drop to 6.3:1, but power climb to 85 horsepower, and torque was rated at 144 lbsft. Production of the original 221 lasted from 1932 through to 1936. These engines can be identified by their water pumps located at the front of the heads. Backing up this engine is a threespeed sliding gear manual transmission with a floormounted shifter and a 4.11:1 differential.
Inside, the tan seats are in overall excellent condition, the matching carpet looks great and the headliner does, too. The threespoke steering wheel is in satisfactory order, while the metal instrument panel, with its full suite of gauges, is in great condition, as are the inner door liners. The floor shifter is in satisfactory order. The odometer reading in 1982 was 3,035 and remains the same as the odometer/speedometer are inoperable.
We found a dealer customer invoice dated September 20, 1940 in the cars glovebox. The owner at that time lived at 1144 McCausland Avenue in St. Louis, Missouri. Today, an offramp from westbound Interstate 64 exits onto McCausland at that location. At 25,456 miles, the owner had the dealer, LoveJohnson Motor Co., lubricate the chassis and adjust the brakes, which cost a grand total of $1.10 LoveJohnson Ford was located at 5244 Natural Bridge Ave., just east of Union Boulevard in St. Louis. Today, that address is part of Stepney Brothers Auto Body. That invoice was tucked within a 1948 AAA Service Station Directory.
The 1935 Ford was a thorough refresh on the popular V8powered Ford. The fourcylinder Model A engine was no longer offered, leaving just the 221 CID V8 to power every Ford car and truck. The transverse leaf spring suspension remained, but the front spring was relocated ahead of the axle to allow more interior volume. The body was lowered and new CenterPoise seating for improved comfort.
Visually, the 1935 Ford was much more modern with the grille pushed forward and made more prominent by deemphasized and moreintegrated fenders. A major advance was a true integrated trunk on trunkback sedans, though the traditional flatback was also offered.
Two trim lines were offered, standard and DeLuxe, across a number of body styles including a base roadster, fivewindow coupe, threewindow coupe, Tudor and Fordor sedans in flatback or trunkback versions, a convertible sedan, a woody station wagon, and new Model 51 truck. Rumble seats were optional on coupe model. An oil pressure gauge (costing $4) and two windshield wipers were optional. If one got the optional radio, it replaced the ash tray.
The 1935 Fords combination of price, practicality, and looks vaulted the company ahead of rival Chevrolet for the sales crown that year, with 820,000 sold. Competition to this Ford in 1935 included Chevrolets Master Deluxe models and Plymouths PJ Deluxe Twodoor Touring Sedan.
