Early 39 deluxe fenders ( and early 39 mercury ) are more concave between the headlamp opening and the side.
Why they changed around mid 39 I don't know.

Re: Looking for 1939 Ford Deluxe cardboard door panels

Re: Help with driver door on 1937 Ford Tudor sedan

You should be able to get one in reasonable condition for 1/2 that price.

Re: 1938 Woody Transmission Cover

Re: 1939 (not 40) heater firewall template needed

I believe the 39 convertibles had different defroster ducts than the closed ones.

Re: 1940 Ford convertible body tags

One of my 39 deluxe convertibles ( ex USA ) had a body tag up in the LH corner.
From memory it ended with 074 indicating the first week of production.

Re: crash

Try Dave in Inglewood.
Ring him then send some pictures.
They have worked on a lot of pre-war Ford V8's.
Bought 1 or 2 of mine back from the dead.
