Early stock car racing drivers also used Fords of this generation among othercars. This Ford also formed the basis for a style of dirt track racing car.  A high flat-toppedhood dominated the front look of the 1940 model. as the grille spread out toreach the fenders to differentiate the Deluxe line and the headlights werepushed wider still. The standard Ford inherited the grille of the 1939 modelwith blackout on each side of a heavy chrome center; heavier headlightsurrounds serve as another major differentiator from the 1939. 1940 was thelast year of the 1937 design and its smaller V8 engine. with a straight-6 to bereintroduced the following year. Sealed-beam headlights were one of the fewmajor advances for 1940. though a hydraulic top was new on the convertible.   VIN 185540145 The original ownerof this beautiful 1940 Ford had the vehicle until 1956.
