28 DAYS UNTIL SCOTTSDALE: 1934 FORD MODEL 40 DELUXE ROADSTER
This 1934 Ford Model 40 Deluxe Roadster is one of more than 140 vehicles from the Ron Pratte Collection crossing the block at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction in January.
Completely restored after a 13-year search for the best new old stock parts, this 1934 Ford Model 40 Deluxe Roadster (Lot #2502) is loaded with numerous factory options, including the Greyhound radiator mascot, cowl lamps and twin tail lamps.
Powered by Ford’s revolutionary 221cid Flathead V8 engine with 85hp and backed by a 3-speed manual transmission, this Deluxe Roadster is a can’t-miss auction item. Perfect black paint with correct Deluxe Cream pinstriping and matching 17” wire wheels show off the beautiful exterior.
Popular even in the midst of the depression, the demand for the 1934 Ford Model 40 Deluxe continued with custom car crafters for years to come. As a result of the car’s popularity and many being made into hot rods, period-correct restorations are rare. This particular vehicle is a Dearborn National Champion after scoring a 993 out of a possible 1,000 points.
This ’34 Ford Model 40 Deluxe Roadster (Lot # 2502) will cross the auction block in Scottsdale on Saturday, Jan. 17.
