"1939 Ford Deluxe"

Featuring model Rachel in this classic car themed pinup with a 1939 Ford Deluxe! Armed with her swimsuit and LIFE magazine, Rachel is ready to have a nice day at the beach! Of course, it's her trusty 1939 Ford Deluxe that will get her there! First introduced in 1938, the 'De Luxe Ford' was the middle man between their standard model cars and the higher end luxary models. The early 1938 models had a rounded hood which gave way in 1939 for the V-shaped grill with vertical bars. The 1940 model had a three part gill with horiztonal grill bars. The De Luxe series was actually a separate line of cars from the other brands Ford had at the time. In 1941 the De Luxe series was joined by the Super De Luxe series, however both of these were not used as separate line cars and became part of the Ford lineup.
Celebrating the golden age of pinups during the 1940s, these classic pinups have been carefully shot and finished to mimic the classic style made famous by artists such as George Petty and Alberto Vargas. Fun and often downright goofy, these pinups portray the girl next door and her adventures through the 1940s. Prints in many different sizes are available!
