Roll-Over Special: 1941 Ford Sedan


Well, here’s a first for me: a 1941 Ford is listed here on eBay in the wheels-up position – complete with the damage suffered from the unexplained roll-over. The words “stunt car” are mentioned in the heading and then never uttered again, which only makes me even more curious as to what happened! The seller claims it ran and drove fine prior to the incident, which seemingly also included the ignition key being stolen by 3 guys in New Jersey (see the questions and answers at the bottom of the listing). Pictures reveal a damaged roof and driver’s side, along with a ratty interior. These features haven’t had much effect on bidding, which is up to $1,450 with no reserve. What do you think happened to this black ’41?

    Now I think I’ve truly seen it all. You could lop off the top, might make an interesting roadster.

    Just what is a Rat Hot Street Rod? Can I buy a comma? Going by the Q & A, he flipped it himself to prove a point. I guess it was, don’t steal my car or I will wreck it. A formerly running engine upside down is not good. I think he is trying to hide major problems by making you look at it upside down. Doesn’t make any sense in the entire ad.

    Hammer out the dents, a little rubbing compound, and this thing still will not look right. What a shame. It looked like a great example before the accident.
