1938 Ford Standard Coupe

The 1938 recession hurt sales, as did Ford's continuing of the 1937 cars, including most body panels. 1938 DeLuxe models were differentiated with a heart-shaped grille, though standard models retained the 1937 look. The fading Slantback sedan design was cancelled for good. Only a V8 was offered, either a 60hp V8 or an 85hp V8. A new dash was used, with recessed controls for safety.

For consignment a 38 Standard Coupe with a 59A engine. Primer finish…restored exterior and interior.

Panels filled, sanded and primed, another finer sanding then ready for paint. Brite work has patina with some pitting, bumpers are new on front and rear. Grille is good as are headlight bezels.

A swing of the door reveals vinyl door panels with vertical pleating, and a top area that is smooth. A bench seat uses the same motif and appears in good condition. A red metal dash fronts the seat and embedded within are what appear to be original gauges, as well as a cluster of bakelite knobs, and a large center vent. Hanging below the dash are a pair of aftermarket gauges. A beautiful black with chrome banjo style steering wheel fronts this restored dash. Black carpet covers the floor.

A 1946 Ford 59A 21 bolt “flatty” engine with a newly installed oil pump and crank shaft, sits proudly within the engine bay. This produces 95hp and is attached to a 3-speed manual transmission with a 1949 Ford Truck gear set. Fenton headers allow the mill to breathe easily.

Slight surface rust is present, otherwise underside is unremarkable. Seen are new brakes, and a new master cylinder. A new 9” clutch has been installed as well as a cover for it.

An opportunity to own a classic that has been upgraded but certainly not hot rodded. It retains its original beautiful shape from teardrop headlights, to a curvaceous back, running boards, and rear fender skirts that add to the extremely beautiful lines of this car. Paint it or leave it as is, either way you will find your way down the long and winding road very much a pleasurable experience.

1938 Ford V8 by Brewster

This 1938 Ford may not immediately identify as the fastest or flashiest car on view, though it is one of the most special cars owned by the Audrain Auto Museum. This car was originally owned by Harold Stirling Vanderbilt who spent a lot of his time here in Newport with the car. Upon the death of his wife Gertrude in 1978, Newporters flocked to the Vanderbilt’s house to buy items from the home. The Ford was not going far however, as the Vanderbilt family set aside the car to their friends and neighbors, who owned the car until 2020 when they donated it to the Audrain Museum. 

Harold Vanderbilt was a man of many talents. After graduating from Harvard Law School, Harold joined the family business, the New York Central Railroad, of which his father was president. He was heavily involved in the family business until the mid-1950’s, remaining the only active representative from the Vanderbilt family after his brother Willie K.’s death in 1940. Harold was also well known in Newport as as a sailor, steering three J-Class yachts to America’s Cup victories in the 1930’s representing the New York Yacht Club, which is located here in Newport. While his brother Willie K. was much more involved in automobile culture and served as the face of the American racing scene, Harold had a strong interest in cars also, as seen by the tasteful modifications to this Ford sedan. 

This car started its life as a standard 1938 Ford sedan with the modifications undertaken by Brewster, a company well known for crafting exquisite bodies for Rolls-Royces. Interestingly, Brewster went out of business in 1936, two years before this Ford rolled off the assembly line. John S. Inskip, a former vice-president of sales for Brewster, purchased the remains of the Brewster company in 1937 to continue selling automobiles and bodies the company built.

This Ford has a number of subtle additions that are attributed to Harold’s personal taste and interests. The exterior colors, royal claret and black, are the Vanderbilt family colors, which was hinted to locals as to who might be behind the wheel. The roof of the Ford has a unique roof covering that begins several inches behind the roof line, extending across the roof and back to the top of the deck lid. Inside the car is where it gets a bit more special; the Ford is plusher than a production DeLuxe model with upholstered panels over the blanked-out rear side windows, each carrying a small lamp, plus several other appointments that add to its individuality, including a braided rope that lines the division of the front and rear seats, a subtle nod to his illustrious sailing career.

1937 Ford

See also: Deluxe Ford

Motor vehicle

The Ford line of cars was updated in 1937 with one major change — the introduction of an entry-level 136 CID (2.2 L) V8 in addition to the popular 221 CID (3.6 L) flatheadV8. The model was a refresh of its predecessor, the Model 48 (itself based on the Model 40A), and was the company's main product. It was redesigned more thoroughly in 1941. At the start of production, it cost US$850 ($15,302 in 2020 dollars [2]). The Ford Line bore several model numbers during this period: For domestic 1937 production in the United States Ford Model Numbers for 85 hp V-8 equipped cars was Model 78 and 60 hp V-8 cars was Model 74. Models 81A and 82A in 1938, and Models 91A and 92A in 1939.


The 1937 Ford featured a more rounded look with fine horizontal bars in the convex front and hood-side grilles. The front grille was V-shaped, rather than following the fenders into a pentagon shape, as on the 1936 model. Faired-in headlights installed in the front fenders were a major modernization found on both the Standard and DeLuxe trim versions, and the introduction of an all steel top for the passenger compartment. The Standard could be distinguished from the DeLuxe by the body color radiator grilles and windshield frames while the DeLuxe had walnut woodgrain window mouldings and exterior trim brightwork, and a woodgrain finish applied to the interior window trim.[1] A larger water pump was used to help aid in cooling.[3] 'Slantback' sedans gained a rear trunk door, though space was limited, and 'Trunkback' versions continued gaining sales. The station wagon had seating for eight passengers. A 4-door "convertible sedan" with roll up windows was offered in small numbers in the DeLuxe series.[4] Also, new seats were used.[5]


The 1938 recession hurt sales, as did Ford's continuing of the 1937 cars, including most body panels. 1938 DeLuxe models were differentiated with a heart-shaped grille, though standard models retained the 1937 look. The fading Slantback sedan design was cancelled for good. Only a V8 was offered, either a 60 hp V8 or an 85 hp V8.[6] A new dash was used, with recessed controls for safety.[6]

The 1938 trucks were finally updated, having continued with 1935 looks. Changes included a vertical oval grille and substantial fenders and bumpers.


The Ford's look was again modernized for 1939 — the Deluxe used a low pointed grille with heavier vertical slats, while the standard Ford had a higher grille with horizontal dividers. The headlights (the example illustrated has been converted to '40 Ford sealed beam headlamps - '39s used bulb and reflector lamps, the last year for them) were moved farther apart, sitting almost in front of the wheels. The side grilles and louvers were removed in favor of chrome strips on Deluxe models. The "alligator" hood opened deep from the top of the grille back, eliminating the side panels found on previous models.

Mechanically, Ford put hydraulic brakes on their cars for the very first time.[7][8]

The phaeton, club coupe, and convertible club coupe models were discontinued. The engine was also revised for 1939 with downdraft carburetors widening the torque band but leaving power unchanged at 85 hp (63 kW). Hydraulic brakes were a major advance across the Ford line.

Ford's upscale Mercury line also made its debut in 1939, filling the gap between the Deluxe Fords and the Lincoln-Zephyr line.

A high flat-topped hood dominated the front look of the 1940 model, as the grille spread out to reach the fenders to differentiate the Deluxe line and the headlights were pushed wider still. The standard Ford inherited the grille of the 1939 model with blackout on each side of a heavy chrome center; heavier headlight surrounds serve as another major differentiator from the 1939. 1940 was the last year of the 1937 design and its smaller V8 engine, with a straight-six engine to be reintroduced the following year. Sealed-beam headlights were one of the few major advances for 1940, while a hydraulic top was new on the convertible.


The 1937-1940 generation of Fords is one of the most popular automobiles for hot rodding. Early stock car racing drivers also used Fords of this generation among other cars. This Ford also formed the basis for a style of dirt track racing car.
