Ford Other 1940 Description

1940 Fords Deluxe five-window business coupes are always popular, ut they're seldom as good looking as this bright red classic. With a small block Chevy V8, nicely finished interior, nd plenty of charisma, his might be your first, ast, nd only opportunity to get the '40 you've always wanted. Business coupes turned hot rods are great because they present the perfect attitude. They try to pretend to be practical with a large trunk, ut it's only a matter of time before they reveal the beast within...and boy are they classy too.If you were thinking about running moonshine in this one, hink again. The extended trunks of these cars were a favorite of liquor-running outlaws, ut in this case, he once inconspicuous styling is now long gone. The recent bright red paintwork shines brightly on this super straight body. Plus, he custom bumpers, nd the shimmer from the alloy wheels will never slip away unnoticed. By 1941, ords would carry a softer design language with a more rounded front end and less pronounced fenders. So, his aggressively sharp-nosed coupe has always been the perfect one to get the hot rod treatment. In fact, he demand is so high for these coupes that there are now re-creations out there for this model year. That makes us happy to say this an original, teel bodied, 940 that received a complete restoration just a few years ago.Inside it feels like no expense was spared to give this businessman's coupe plenty of real modern conveniences. A nice tan color matches everything on the door panels, arpets, nd seats. The single bench seat up front was upgraded to two modern buckets, ut those who need a kind of drive-in closeness to the passenger could utilize rear bench (a rarity in business coupes.) The driver gets a highly stylized chrome steering wheel package, nd the gauges have been swapped to a modern custom set. There's also been an AM/FM stereo with iPod hookup added. The modern R-134a air conditioning unit has been nicely integrated under the dash for a cleaner appearance. There is no question as to how this won best interior at a car show or two.This is definately a genuine hot rod, o the original flathead Ford V8 has been swapped for a more powerful Chevy 350 cubic-inch unit. It has all the right flair, ith chrome valve covers, ir cleaner, oses, nd other great brightwork. Beyond just style it has the substance of a four-barrel Holley 650 CFM carburetor, erformance intake, nd a Flowmaster dual exhaust, hat makes all the right go-fast noises. The motor is mated to a three-speed automatic transmission that then sends the power to a stout 10-bolt rear end, unning a versatile 3.73 ratio. This one handles well on the road thanks to a Mustang subframe up front, hat includes an upgrade to front disc brakes.This is a coupe that could have been a moonshiner back in the day, ut survived to be a creature-comfort hot rod.
