1938 Ford Deluxe Sedan


owned by Ken and Karen Dawes

Ford 1937 to 1949

Ford Extended making the 1937 Ford into 1938 The 38 Ford included most body panels on the standard models. But the Deluxe model had a new heart-shaped grille.

The slant back was discontinued –  Hard times, and the non updated look took a toll on sales around this time and sales were slow.  This is not the type of car that is a   donate  car  These Fords were powered by either   136 in³ 2.2 litre Flathead V8 Or the 221 in³ 3.6 Litre Flathead V8 In 1938 Ford created a separate Mercury division to separate between the more basic Fords and the luxury Lincoln.  Having introduced the Lincoln Zephyr in 1936, Separate  branding for the Lincoln image was created.

I have always had a wonderful memory. when I say “wonderful memory” what I really mean is that I rarely if ever recall horrible things like the weather. I never recall cold or frosty mornings, or even 24 hours of anything dull or boring that might have happened before or after a memorable event, the happy result being all my life's memories are wonderful. Peculiar as it may sound to anyone who might be reading this, I have absolutely marvelous memories that range from breaking one or more of my bones to hanging upside down from an upper branch of an Oak tree with my ankle wedged between two branches. I have heard stories about people that have totally removed from their recollection painful events that had previously occurred in their life. I can believe this because at this precise moment I can recall nothing that was not absolutely wonderful. If by chance I have ever blocked out anything painful I would consider this possibility to be just another wonderful thing. I intend to Blog about my friends and memories on these pages.
