You Can Buy Ryan Gosling’s Ford from “Gangster Squad”


Copyright © 2015 Bold Ride LLC.

For the Ryan Gosling fan that has every conceivable piece of Gosling memorabilia…here’s one thing you don’t have. Back in 2013, Ryan Gosling took to the silver screen as police sergeant Jerry Wooters in the 1940s crime drama “Gangster Squad”, accompanying Josh Brolin, Sean Penn, and Emma Stone. Sgt. Wooters’ car of choice? A 1941 Ford Super Deluxe convertible, in fact, this very car.
The “Gangster Squad” prop car recently came up for sale on eBay, and ought to make one Ford fan or Ryan Gosling fanatic very happy.


If you hadn’t seen the film, the plot line follows a group of good cops—led by Josh Brolin’s Sergeant John O’Mara—as they fight to dismantle the underworld of crime boss Mickey Cohen, played by Sean Penn. Bullets fly, fedoras are worn, and classic cars are chased. A number of achingly gorgeous cars dot the Los Angeles noir landscape, though Wooters’ Florentine Blue Super Deluxe certainly captures more eyes than most.
The ’41 Ford Super Deluxe boasts a face full of chrome, a pair of amber fog lights mounted to the glinting bumper, and a driver’s side spotlight. Underneath the hood lies a 221 cu. in. flathead V8, which mates to a three-speed manual transmission. According to its odometer, that combination shows 45,371 miles, though the car has been noted to have been restored at one point.


Flip back the white fabric convertible top and you’ll find a period-correct interior, with dark tan seating and door cards, a gorgeous woodgrain dashboard, and even the original radio.
Not long after the film debuted, the Super Deluxe sold at the 2013 Leake Auction in Dallas, Texas for $25,900. Today, it carries a “Buy It Now” price of $29,995.
