That's a beautiful car and I would be interested in buying it.  However I live in southern California and the shipping would be costly!

Keep in mind a car like this will cost you more if you bought it in California, and the price is negotiable.

My first car was a 1947 Super DeLuxe 2 Door like this one only in much worse condition and painted black.  I was 15 when I bought it for the huge sum of $10.00 in 1962.  It ran and my best friend drove it home for me since he had a license.

Go get it and drive it across the country before the hot weather sets in. Slow, scenic back roads, running all synthetic lubricants, the car should make it just fine. Plenty of '47 Fords have done so with primitive lubricants compared to the state-of-the-art synthetics of today. And most of those crossings spent a great many miles on rough, dusty, washboard gravel roads. Go for it ! What fun !   -   Carl 

 

P.S. Here I am driving a beater, unrestored Cadillac, 20 years older than that Ford. Original, no new bearings, valves or rings. Does have a new radiator, make sure the Ford is cooling properly and has good synthetic oil pressure. This picture is on the Pearblossom out of P'dale headed to Vic'ville on the way to 'Vegas 4 years ago. 2700 miles to and around. If we could make it, you will too.  -   CC

Carl,

 

You're comments inspire to do just that and I have kicked your idea around; but I decided not with this '47 Ford.  I just don't have the time! 

 

But nonetheless it would a great adventure.

 

Chris

 

PS:  If I still owned that '40 Pontiac to the left pictured under my name I would not hesitate.  That was a sweet car...

You are absolutely right, Chris. If time is tight, best not to take the chance. But my biggest automotive regret is that I didn't drive my other old Cad, the '24, from Eastern Ohio to Seattle back in '90. I had the time and the health to do it. The car would have needed some preparation, but that could have been done over Winter as we waited for the snow in the Rockies to end.   Next life.   -   Carl

My grand father and uncle worked on the Ford assembly lines in Detroit and Windsor in those days so I have Ford in family so I had to buy it!  I've own old Buick's and Pontiac's before but haven't owned an old Ford before. There will be a bit of a learning curve here.

The '47 Ford was delivered yesterday. Hats off to the seller for representing the car honestly. The car actually was in better condition that I expected!
