In 1934, Ford blanketed much of the automobile market, offering a wide range of no fewer than 12 distinct models to the buying public. Available models ranged from basic coupes, roadsters, and two-door sedans to more luxurious and well-appointed cabriolets, convertible sedans, and four-door sedans. Most importantly, Ford put high-quality automobiles within reach of ordinary Americans with low prices and rock-solid reliability.
While some buyers might have only been able to afford a basic four-cylinder, two-door coupe priced from $465, the handsome $590 V-8 cabriolet was one of the upscale models that brought them into Ford showrooms. Equipped with roll-up windows and a snug cloth top, the cabriolet combined comfortable and complete appointments with the performance benefits of Fords steadily refined 85-hp V-8 engine and sturdy yet lightweight construction.
