1940 Ford Coupe
This 1940 Ford Coupe is very likely the exact image your mind conjures up if you were to close your eyes and think "customized vintage '40s classic". It represents the kind of excellence that so many builds aspire to but relatively few achieve. Equally well-planned and executed, it combines an awesome look with an impressive number of daily driver amenities, for a car you'll be ecstatic to drive when you're not staring at it, trance-like, in your garage.
Curb appeal does not come in any greater quantity than what you'll find here. The way the hood tapers to the nose in between the two generously proportioned front fenders creates an almost art-deco effect and the forward incline of the aggressive grille in front gives this Coupe the appearance that it's so anxious to get out and hit the road, it's actually leaning into it. The Black Cherry paint is a great choice for a car of this era - it's got a decidedly aftermarket "custom" vibe to it, but it doesn't pull focus from the outstanding shape of the car. Notice how that front windshield comes to a V in its center, with no steel post between the sides. All those inspired touches are in fine form, too - the black cherry hue has a nice even shine and great clearcoat, the panels are very well-fitted and the clean glass you see on all four sides is surrounded by equally fresh rubber seals.
Inside, you'll find a gray cloth interior that's super plush and comfortable and features a lot of great touches. The well-padded bench seat shows some serious artistry with its unusually detailed stitching, contoured shape and integrated fold-down armrest. There's all kinds of head and shoulder room here, even for larger proportioned occupants. Looking forward, you'll find an assortment of aftermarket VDO gauges sitting inside a fresh expanse of brushed aluminum to keep tabs on the functions that matter, and the contrast between cluster and the surrounding dash is a striking one. In back, the amply-proportioned trunk is in great condition, lined by an unstained expanse of gray carpeting and featuring all kinds of room - even between the substantial wheel wells added to accommodate a set of massive rear tires. The A/C system is in optimal form, ready to keep occupants nice and comfortable via four well-placed registers on the dash. Just above, an AM/FM/CD player sits front and center to provide your personal motoring soundtrack. A truly awesome interior.
This is one vintage coupe configured to be as roadworthy as it is gawk-worthy. Sure, there's no doubt that with its magnetic presence, this car could do some serious damage at shows, but it's built for enjoyable driving, as well. Under the substantial hood sits a Chevy 350 V8, outfitted with a 4-barrel Edelbrock carb and some nice chrome add-ons, including the power steering pump, air cleaner and radiator hose. It's a fresh-sounding healthy engine, firing right up and idling smoothly and so, paired up with its 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission, maintaining highway speeds will be a low-RPM endeavor. Wilwood disc brakes have been installed on all four corners, so your stopping power will be well-looked after. This truly inspired classic coupe sits on a set of 15" steel rims, outfitted with Kelly Metric radials in front and massive Hoosier tires in back.
