Ford 1918-1962 market review 2020

Older US Fords remain popular and collectors are paying extra to own one. Most costly by a wide margin are the first V8 Fords, built from 1932-35 and headed for $100,000. Open top roadsters and phaetons in outstanding condition already realise that money.

| Buyer's Guide: Ford V8 & Mercury V8 (1937-1948)

Below them in the $30-40,000 price bracket sits a wide range of 1930s and more recent models including locally-built Customs and Customlines plus entry-level examples of the Crown Victoria hardtop. These in excellent order still make more than $50,000.

Anyone with a love of veteran machinery can still find T Models built 100 or so years ago and selling for less than $25,000.
