Not sure what the rear gear ratio is on your 1939, Chris? On my 1946 it is 4:30 to 1. Online the top speed was considered to be 65mph. To me this would seem to make for a fairly "busy" engine. I would say that the 50-55 mph would be more civil. I know the engine in my Chevy truck with a 4:10 to 1 sounds pretty busy at 55mph.
