1939 ford deluxe coupe,..The Ford's look was again modernized for 1939 — the De Luxe 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 these) were moved farther apart, now sitting almost in front of the wheels. The side grilles and louvers were removed in favor of chrome strips on De Luxe models. The "alligator" hood opened deep from the top of the grille back, eliminating the side panels found on previous models.
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 advancement across the Ford line.
Ford's upscale Mercury line also bowed in 1939, filling the gap between the De Luxe Fords and the Lincoln-Zephyr line.
