Cassette Player. Cloth Interior. Front Disc Brakes SELLER REMARKS The 1940 Ford represents perhaps the ideal combination of pre-war style and fat-fendered comfort. That pointed prow on this Deluxe tudor sedan is one of the most recognizable beaks ever designed. and the rest of the bright red car ain't half bad. either. Add in a warmed-over flathead. comfortable interior. and a shockingly affordable price and you get a rod that'll make you happy for years to come. Bright red wasn't on the books in 1940. partly because red paint back then tended to fade and it was expensive. so Henry Ford didn't allow it. But you can't argue that it doesn't look awesome on the 1940 Ford sheetmetal. Nothing on this particular car has been chopped or altered and almost all the trim remains. so it has an honest period look that comes naturally. It's an older build. so it is ready to drive and enjoy without worries. yet it presents well enough to show with pride at the local cruise night. The only real demerit is a hood that doesn't sit quite flush at the cowl. but that's a common problem with these cars. The paint shines up well and could possible benefit from a professional cut and buff session to really wake up the shine. Fiberglass rear fenders are the only non-steel parts on the body. and it's nice to see running boards wrapped in rubber that can actually be used. Chrome and stainless trim glitters against the red paint. giving the car a bit of jewelry to go with the high-visibility paint. The gray cloth interior is quite conservative. using period-style patterns to give it an old-fashioned look while the modern fabrics add a custom look. There are modern arm rests on the doors. but beyond that. it's actually pretty stock. including the door handles. instrument panel. and the cool 2-spoke steering wheel. The dash was probably woodgrained originally. but now has a cool textured finish that doesn't look too far out of whack with what they might have been doing in 1940. and the dashboard plastics are in remarkably good shape. The factory gauges are tiny. so a set of aftermarket dials were installed under the dash. and the original AM radio has been replaced by an AM/FM/cassette head unit up there on top of the dash. The carpets might be showing a bit of age. but it's a personal judgment call as to whether they need replacing. and the trunk has been upholstered to match. If you haven't owned a flathead Ford. you really owe it to yourself to find out what all the commotion is about. This slick flatty has been upgraded with goodies like finned Weiand FR heads. a modern 12-volt alternator. and a few dress-up parts. so it looks great and drives like a flathead should. The original 3-speed manual transmission still handles power delivery to the banjo-style rear end. and the suspension carries transverse leaf springs as original. Tube shocks were added and really make a big difference in ride and handling and front disc brakes have been fitted to vastly improve stopping power. A bubbly dual exhaust system perfectly captures that flathead sound and you can plainly see that this car came from someplace warm and dry. because the chassis is in good shape overall. Classic Torque Thrust wheels add a period performance look and carry staggered 185/70/14 front and 235/70/15 rear radials. A neat Ford at a great price. and with flathead power. it'll stand out at shows. You're really going to enjoy this one.
