Business have needed delivery vehicles of all sorts as long as there has been business. In the ’30s, one of the ways to get goods to customers was with a delivery truck like this 1931 Ford Deluxe Sedan Delivery. Ford made only 9,529 of the vehicles in 1931, and as the years have gone by, the 1931 Ford Deluxe Sedan Delivery has only gotten rarer.
The example in the images here is heading to auction with Tom Mack Classics and will cross the auction block with no reserve. The vehicle has been fully restored and is painted in Bronson Yellow with red wire-spoke wheels and black trim. Business owners thinking the highly visible 1931 Ford Deluxe Sedan Delivery is a good way to advertise should know that the logos on the vehicle are vinyl and can be removed.
The interior is black vinyl, and the dash is the same yellow color as the outside. The steering wheel and gauges have an original look to them, but we don’t know if they are original or not. The carpet in the passenger compartment is gray, and the rear cargo area is carpeted too.
The car was originally sold in California and doesn’t have the corrosion you might find in vehicles that lived in colder climates. The sale includes a California assigned VIN and title. Under the engine cowl, the 1931 Sedan Delivery is very clean. The engine is an L-head inline four-cylinder that has been painted green. Back in June, we talked about a custom hot rod that had started life as a 1931 Ford Model A pickup before being transformed into an 800 horsepower, supercharged hot rod.
