38 Standard (Art Deco design) is the best, followed by the 37 (Lincoln Zephyr) inspired front end design.

IMHO - Least favorite is the 38 Deluxe "seagull bird beak hood", followed by the 39 standard.

Probably, my favorite would be a flat back '37 Tudor. Yes also to the '34 roadster and all the '32's. '41 and up in my mind are just too big.

Opinions are like belly buttons, everybody has one... I cleaned that up didn't I?

Here are my picks:
1. `39 Deluxe Coupe or Convertible
2. `34 Coupe or Roadster
3. `40 Deluxe Coupe or Convertible

I love a coupe!

Sadly, I do not own any of the above. If I hit the lottery tonight I'll have a bunch of them!

I'll not speak to the uglies. What is ugly to me may be beautiful to others.

I like them both but some say the 39 bull nose is the ugliest and the 40 the prettiest. Lucky I have both.

I totally agree. Wish I had one too. Sigh.

I'm partial to the '39 Deluxe coupes. I've since aligned the hood and added trim rings, but no new pics.
P.S. lets see more pics.

Isn't it obvious?

1) 32, 33, or 34 Victoria. The sweetest closed cars ever.

2) 33 cabriolet simply poetic

3) 39 convertible coupe the best of the 35-40 styling

Bingo! Gene K is right on!
Contrary to my opinion when I was 16, just like women, they're all pretty now (;>))

Hard to choose out of so may Ford contenders. Just about the time you think of one as less beautiful than some others, you start to really see great beauty in them. I guess I'm still waiting to see an ugly one...maybe '47 '48 Chevy even though I do like Chevvies a lot.
