Description for Ford Deluxe 1940

1940 Fords are always popular... but they're seldom as good looking as this slick red coupe with 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 and A/C interior, but it's only a matter of time before they reveal the powerful V8 beast within.
The extended trunks of these business coupes were a favorite of moonshiners... but they never had it this good. After all, the Crystal Red Metallic paint was borrowed from a modern Corvette. This gives it a terrific modern sleekness no matter if it's reflecting the midday sun or midnight moon. But this classic also retains all the best of its vintage charm. The iconic art deco style grille, big chrome bumpers with artful slats, full length trim, and two-piece wheel covers on top of white steelies it's all part of the experience that keeps this Deluxe Coupe legendary. And because it's on a body that's made with all genuine Ford steel, it really gets the extra attention.
While this is absolutely vintage on the outside, they invested a ton to make sure you got every modern convenience on the inside. After all, they never had comfy bucket seats in the 1940s, and yours power adjusts to the perfect driving position. The tan on the seats coordinates with the carpeting, shift boot, headliner, trunk, and door panels for a quality uniform appearance. And speaking of the door panels, you can tell how much attention when into the build just by the amount of effort that went into this custom setup. Plus, you have cold R134a air conditioning, power windows, and a tilt steering column. The AM/FM/CD stereo is ready for XM and has a USB input for your most modern music players. Plus, this connects to a full speaker system that include a custom subwoofer speaker box behind the seats. There's a Lokar shifter for your right hand. Your left one will love the banjo-style wheel with Ford V8 logo horn cap, and beyond that are crisp VDO gauges. These lets your senses know this car was built for driving.
Grab your sunglasses before opening the hood, because if the brass top color on the radiator doesn't attract a crowd, all the polished components on the V8 will. With the ribbed valve covers, matching air topper, alternator, compressor, upgraded pulleys, and so much more radiating shine (and the mirrored firewall doubling it,) this could win awards all on its own. And more than just style, we really appreciate it when a classic Ford like this received proper blue oval motor. It's a powerful 347 cubic-inch stroker V8 topped by an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. This mighty motor fires up with a terrific growl out of the glasspack-style dual exhaust. But don't just listen to this rumble; follow its path in the undercarriage photos. There you'll also spot terrific driving upgrades like the Mustang II-style independent front suspension, front disc brakes, and the rear sway bar. Add in a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and modem Kumno tires, and this is the classic Ford you'll happily take to car shows near and far.
Business coupes are always in-demand for their outlaw personality, but this one's true desirability is because it's a total package thoughtful build. And since it's ready to hit the streets right now, you need to call today!
