The Sedan Delivery truck was a staple of Ford ’ s lineup for several years. It was a well-liked and reasonably priced utility truck that regularly helped bolster Ford ’ s annual sales. The design of the Sedan Delivery changed over the years; however, it stayed relatively close to the overall shape and form of the five-passenger sedan, with obvious modifications. Ford diversified its lineup with a wide variety of differing trucks, each varied in either the powerplant or overall weight capacity depending on the truck ’ s intended function. Over the ensuing years Ford adopted continually larger engines into each truck, beginning with the capable but modest four-cylinder, all the way up to the famed V8, as seen in the example presented here. Because of their overall utility, many were delivered new without a front passenger seat as well – truly this redefines the word utility.

By 1934, the Ford Sedan Delivery truck was one of the most reliable and respected examples in its field. Approximately 9,000 were built and sold that year and they could be seen on the streets of major metropolitan cities and rural towns alike doing the thankless work needed at all hours of the day. Cosmetically, the 1934 Sedan Delivery trucks remained largely unchanged from that of the 1933; however, the V8 engine received a new water pump, valve assemblies, pistons and crank. All in all, they were mechanically reliable trucks that performed exceptionally, and many were driven into the ground. As a result, few of the 9,000 examples originally made remain today.

The example shown here is a highly correct, beautifully restored 1934 Ford V8 Sedan Delivery. Restored from the ground up, the all steel Sedan Delivery is equipped with a rare and correct Columbia two-speed rear end, desirable front passenger seat, side mount spare tire, fog lamps, and an AM radio. We understand the Ford is a very fit running example; it is fully sorted and mechanically ready to go to work. This attractively finished and utilitarian Ford is a refreshing departure from the grand opulence of the period and if fitted with corporate decals, would be perfect for any business seeking a higher profile.
