Default Planetary Alignment? - '38 convertible.

It must be a case of all the planets in alignment, that seems the only explanation for the new addition to our family. This car belonged to a friends father who passed away in September. His name was Larry Anderson and was the nicest guy you could ever meet. Larry lived in Stoughton Wisconsin his whole life and bought this 1938 Convertible in 2006 after losing his house, and a vintage Volkswagen to a tornado a few years before. At the time he said he wanted a car that was made the year he was born. I first saw this car at a show about ten years ago and thought what a beautiful car and great color to boot. It was not a perfect concours example but a very nice usable vehicle. After Larry passed his children decided to sell as none of them wanted it for themselves which leads to me and the planets. It is one thing to be in the right place at the right time but another to have funds available and family that is willing to go along with a wild idea to buy a very cool car. Spring needs to come early this year so we can put the top down and hit the road. Now for a question, is the car properly called a Deluxe Convertible Club Coupe? Has a full trunk, no rumble seat but a back seat.
