These iconic cars were named 5-Window Coupes because they had just that, 5 windows. In 1934, the car was available in a Standard and Deluxe model.
The Standard model featured an adjustable seat, sun visor on the driver’s side, roll-down window in the back seat, an interior light and glove box.The buyer was given the option of Thorn Brown Mohair or Tan Pinstripe with leather for seat upholstery. Other available options on the Standard were a cigar lighter, ashtray and rumble seat. More than 49,000 of this model were sold in 1934.
The Deluxe version of the 1934 5-Window Coupe featured a chrome windshield frame, dual horns, dual tail lamps, twin sun visors, cowl light, driver’s side armrest, cigar lighter and ashtray. Deluxe model buyers were given the option of Rose Beige Mohair, Brown Stripe Broadcloth, Brown Bedford Cord or leather to upholster their seats.
The exterior paint color choices for both models included: Cordoba Gray, Coach Maroon, Vineyard Green or Dearborn Blue.
This 1934 Ford 5-Window Coupe has a stock body and an ultra-rare 21-bolt V8 Flathead engine. This combination of a stock body and upgraded engine is representative of a 1950s hot rod. Other features include a stock 3-speed manual transmission and stock rear end and suspension.
Ray acquired this car in 2014 from the collection of a Bonneville land speed record holder, the late “Wild” Willie Glass.
