Stored for 35 Years: 1938 Ford Super Deluxe

1938 Ford Super DeluxeThis 2-door Ford coupe is located in Belmont, New Hampshire and is for sale here on eBay where spirited bidding is up to just over $3,000 but the reserve hasn’t been met yet. This great old flathead has been stored taken apart since it was moved from New Mexico at least 35 years ago. The engine has been made to run but there’s still an obvious large amount of work left to do. I really like the lines on the front of this car; you see a lot of 32-34 Fords, and a lot of 40 Fords, but I can’t remember the last time I saw a 1938 model. The seller tells us that the car was stored disassembled and “dry” and it has been resurrected to the point of starting the engine.  There is no front seat, but most of the rest of the hard stuff is there. The seller also speaks of there being no paint but a lot of “patina” – I call it rust – but it appears there are few holes, if any. Would you restore it, run it as-is, or turn it into a street rod?
