Entrant number 38  Ken and Karen Dawes

The Heart Shaped Grill of  the 1938

Deluxe  Ford

Ford 1937 to 1949

Ford Extended  making  the 1937 Ford into 1938  The 38 Ford  included  most body panels on the standard models.  But the  Deluxe model had a new  heart-shaped grille.

The slant back was discontinued -

Hard times, and the non updated look took a toll on sales around this time and sales were slow.

These Fords were powered by either 136 in³  2.2 litre   Flathead V8  Or the  221 in³ 3.6 Litre  Flathead V8

In 1938 Ford created a  separate Mercury division to separate  between the more basic Fords and the  luxury Lincoln.

Having introduced the Lincoln Zephyr in 1936,  Separate branding  for the Lincoln image was created
