1934 Ford Deluxe Three Window Coupe


Recommended Posts

Before it was a classic car, this solid 1934 Ford Deluxe Three Window Coupe was the family car.  Driven and well taken care of throughout its life.  Through its history and restoration, it has emerged as a premiere collectible Early Ford V8.

History
Rarely these old Fords come with any of its past.  This time, we have great information and documentation on the coupe.  The first owner we know of was Wilbur Langham of Antwerp, Ohio who owned a body shop.  In the late ‘60’s, the coupe was sold to Kenneth Casey.  In 1997, Wilbur’s daughter Suzanne bought the car back, as she wanted to add to memories of the car from her High School and college days, when she drove it often.  Note the photo of her with the coupe in October of 1964.  In 2000, she gave it to Mike Belmont, of Belmont Super Service, a restoration shop established in 1933.  You can see the restoration in the attached photos, and she kept it until 2011.  Since then, two more owners, and now to me.  

The Restoration 
The Belmont crew took the excellent body off the frame and did a full professional restoration.  Photos show just how great the original sheet metal is, before and after.  All detailed steps were taken to produce an outstanding car, that not only looks fantastic but is also mechanically sound and drives great.
