The Ford line was restyled for 1938 and rather than have Deluxe and Standard models that varied only in accoutrements and trim levels, Ford made the two lines distinct. They used different sheet metal for each and even different Fordor and Tudor bodies for the two lines.

The most popular Ford bodystyle for 1938 was the Model 81A Tudor Sedan. They had a base price of $665 and had 106,117 sales for the model year. Bodies were produced for Ford by Briggs. They featured a single left-hand taillight, left-hand-only windshield wiper, sun visor, and armrest.

This particular example is powered by the optional flathead V8 engine rated at 85 horsepower. It is finished in Washington Blue and is part of the Don Gibson collection. Currently it has 23,367 miles on its odometer. Mr. Gibson purchased the car in 1961 and has restored the car to its current concours condition. In 1993 it earned a Dearborn Award from the Early Ford V-8 Club of America, scoring 996 points out of a possible 1,000.
