This 1934 Ford Deluxe Roadster was offered for sale at the 2007 RM Auctions held in Meadow Brook. It is powered by a 221 cubic-inch L-head V8 engine capable of producing 85 horsepower. The car has a three-speed manual gearbox and four-wheel mechanically-actuated drum brakes. Located in the front is a shield-shaped grille, first introduced in 1933.
Since the roadster sold for less than the convertible, there were more buyers willing to purchase this vehicle. Its performance was slightly better due to its weight being 85 pounds less than the convertible. This example is fully equipped with the glove box model Ford radio, 16-inch dress-up wheels, radiator temperature indicator, bumper guards and wind wings. It is finished in Cordoba Grey with Tacoma Cream accent. The interior is finished in Colonial Grain leather upholstery. It has been treated to a complete frame-off restoration in 1990 and is still in superb condition.
At auction this car was estimated to sell between $80,000 - $100,000. At auction, the estimate turned out to be very accurate, as bidding nearly reached that figure, settling at $79,750.
