1940 Ford Other Convertible
A professionally restored and polished representation of Motor City Americana this Ford was undoubtedly built to cruise and enjoy. If you've been shopping for a timeless classic to parade up and down Main Street you've found your next car! This awesome Ford drop-top which began life as an authentic 1940 DeLuxe has with the help of a thorough frame-off restoration been transformed into one smooth-driving show queen. The car's 2010 reboot began with a complete tear down of its rock-solid fuselage.... Once that profile's sinuous panels were massaged to perfection Anderson Auto Body of Sturgeon Bay Wisconsin laid down a slick coat of single-stage Black. And today this sizzling classic looks better than pretty much every car at any show its owner chooses to attend! In keeping with tradition this stellar Ford drop-top is powered by a familiar 221 cubic inch flathead that thanks to relatively tame 6.2 to 1 compression makes a solid 84 horsepower. Behind that rebuilt mill a rebuilt 3-speed transmission spins a Columbia 2-speed axle. In front of that drivetrain a sturdy beam and transverse leaf remain just as they looked back in 1940. And the same holds true behind that drivetrain where a second transverse leaf helps maintain ride height and add a little extra grip. 4-wheel drum brakes hydraulically actuated for the 1938 model year are a welcome addition and big performance upgrade. There's a fresh true-dual exhaust system that employs throaty Dynomax mufflers. And everything rides on color-keyed and stainless-trimmed steelies which spin 195/80R16 Yokohama EF1 whitewalls around red-detailed "FORD DELUXE" branded hub caps. Cool and classic this '40 Ford DeLuxe is a vision in pre-war authenticity. Ready to step up to something different? Call click or visit for more information on this awesome drop-top!
