Video: Unique Fords From & Nbsp; Stainless Steel Will Be Auctioned Off
Worldwide Auctioneers will be selling a collection of stainless steel Ford vehicles in the US in September 2020. The collection includes a 1935 Ford Deluxe, a 1960 Thunderbird and a 1967 Lincoln Continental Convertible.
- The cars are built by Ford and the metallurgical company Allegheny Ludlum. In 1935, six Ford Deluxe sedans were made from it to advertise a new kind of steel. Stainless steel was touted as a durable metal that does not have to be painted. However, due to the high cost of the material, it was not used in mass production.
- All sedans were handed over to Allegheny Ludlum executives, and by 1946 each car had traveled more than 200,000 miles (321,869 kilometers). Until now, only four Ford Deluxe have survived.
The companies collaborated twice more, creating two Ford Thunderbird coupes from stainless steel that traveled more than 100,000 miles (160,934 kilometers), as well as three Lincoln Continental convertibles, which were used as demonstrators. Now some cars are kept in different museums, and the copies put up for auction belong to the firm Allegheny Ludlum.
- Three cars are sold as a kit only. How much this meeting might cost is unknown.
