1940 Ford Sedan Delivery

This is exactly what hot rod fun looks like. The 1940 Ford Sedan Delivery Deluxe gives you all the great lines of a classic pre-war design, but the deep paint, custom A/C interior, upgraded suspension, and performance-built V8 all tell you the only delivery this one will be making is a ton of envy.Today we all know the '40 Ford Deluxes were destine for hot rod duty. It has the chrome teardrop surrounds on the headlights, the long alligator hood, and the front fenders extending beyond the lights to perfectly accept extra wide wheels. But that's just a good starting point; it takes a lot of planning and investment to get a car looking as spectacular as this one. It starts with making sure the nearly 80-year-old Henry Ford steel is looking its best remember, there were only 4240 of these sedan deliveries built in 1940, so each one is already a find worth cherishing. Then add in some stealthy upgrades like the Studebaker taillights and the larger 15-inch wheels that can accept modern tires. Of course, a big deal is getting the right paint. The Bronze Metallic is a modern hue with a deep luster in the sunlight that gives it distinction on a show field, and this professional application can sure draw in a crowd. This kind of shine doesn't need too much chrome just the right factory pieces like the bumpers, pointed grille, and the really cool line that runs the full body length. It's a total package that makes a total stunner out of a rare canvas.Once you open the door, you'll never believe this car is from 1939. The full custom interior has been done in black leather and alligator with a particularly nice eye for detail. After all, everything from the piping on the carpet to the stitching on the bucket seats matches the alligator insert color. This color scheme continues on the door panels, long side cargo area panels, and even the rear door for a full uniform presentation. Plus, you'll love the details like the Ford V8 logos along the sides and the real wood cargo floor with custom pinstriping greeting you at the back door. You'll slip behind the original-style dual spoke steering wheel, which gives you a commanding view of the custom VDO gauge panel that's set in a cool alligator trim piece for added attention. But we know the readout you'll like the most is the Moon Eyes-style tach mounted on top of the dash. And because this is a particularly comfortable cruiser, you get modern conveniences like power windows and ice-cold R134a air conditioning.With such an all-around coordinated package so far, you're going to be happy that under the hood is such a nicely presented engine bay. The batwing air topper and etched valve covers so nicely match the exterior copper. And beyond the color is a serious investment in polished components. There's barely 26K miles on the whole build and the engine was refreshed in 2015. It's that kind of investment that gives you such an award-worthy presentation. And beyond the style is some nice substance. This is a powerful and reliable 350 cubic-inch Chevy small block that includes the extra muscle of an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and a sweet-sounding dual exhaust. Also, take some time to look at the undercarriage photos. Because the suspension is exactly what you want to see. Gone are the old-style pre-war components and in their place are great upgrades like a Mustang II-style independent front suspension, a comfortable Chevelle rear end, front disc brakes, thick sway bars front & rear. If this starting to sound like a great all-around cruiser, then the power steering and three-speed automatic transmission only amplify that feeling.Those removable side decals say it all about this cool Sedan Delivery it earns its place in the sun. So if you're looking for an all-around classic that has been upgrade to keep you wanting for nothing, then this '40 Ford is it. But you're not the only one who wants this kind of turn-key distinction, so hurry up and call today!
