Description for Ford Deluxe 1940

1940 Fords are always popular... but they're seldom as good looking as this slick black coupe with a powerful small block V8, custom A/C interior, and plenty of brightwork in all the right places. It reminds you that business coupes turned hot rods are great because they present the perfect attitude. They try to pretend to be practical with a large trunk, but it is only a matter of time before they reveal the beast within.Here's your favorite moonshiner. The extended trunks of these cars were a favorite of liquor-running outlaws, and in this case, the this one has a slick and dark presentation that's perfect for slipping through the midnight air. Then again, with all mirror-like brightwork on the bumpers, grille, headlights, and running the full-length of the body, you'll easily reflect any spotlights. But more than just the cool moonshiner legacy, you want this one because it was the last year for this generation of Ford coupes. By 1941, they would carry a softer design language with a more rounded front end and less pronounced fenders. So this aggressively sharp-nosed coupe has always been the perfect one to get the hot rod treatment. This speedy image is heightened by the forward leaning stance and wider rear tires on those Weld Racing wheels. It makes this one look like it is just itching to sprint, even when standing still.Inside it feels like no expense was spared to give this businessman's coupe plenty of modern convenience. A custom gray and mauve setup adds a thoughtful two-tone from the door panels, to the carpeting, to the trunk with an included spare. In fact, if you want to judge the quality of a build, just look at the detail work that went into the trunk. It's fully-finished and now includes a matching battery box cover and TV/DVD setup for the car shows. The single bench seat up front was upgraded to two buckets that announce the car's year on the headrests. But those who need drive-in style closeness, you can utilize rear bench (a rarity in business coupes). You have all the best modern features like power windows, cruise control, an AM/FM/CD stereo, and modern R134a air conditioning. But the best treats are reserved just for the driver. You get a wood and chrome sports steering wheel. Plus, the gauge package has been upgraded to a full VDO set right in front of you and a large SunPro tach in the center. This is an indication of something nice under the hood even before you twist the key and hear it roar. Since the rest of the car is built to show off, you'll be happy to see the engine bay is, too. With the valve covers, air topper, radiator, braded steel pipes, pulleys, and so much more polished to a mirror-like shine, you're going to need to hand out sunglasses before showing people under the hood. Beyond flash, there's also the substance of a Chevy 327 cubic-inch small block V8 that has been upgraded with some serious power. It starts with dual Edelbrock four-barrel carburetors, and includes other great go-fast goodies like an Edelbrock intake, MSD ignition, March serpentine belt system, and a rumbling dual exhaust. Plus, when you look at the undercarriage photos, you're going see great enhancements like a Mustang II-style independent front suspension and four-wheel disc brakes. There's even a three-speed automatic transmission and power steering. And even if you're stuck in traffic, the aluminum radiator w/electric means this car can stay cool while you've got the A/C blowing. So this is a great all-around driving classic.This has the color, stance, features, and power you want. So you know a total package like this '40 Ford won't be available for long.
