Ford Deluxe 1940 Description

1940 Ford Deluxe coupes are one of the most sought-after classics. With an upgraded Ford V8, a nicely finished interior, and plenty of charisma, it might seem like the price is a misprint on this bright red coupe. But instead you're just looking at a fleeting opportunity to own the custom '40 you've always wanted at a value price.The 1940 Ford business coupe is incredibly popular thanks to its combination of timeless good looks and practical comfort. There's no need for radical modifications to the body, because it already has all the best features you could want on a custom car. The wave-like profile of the sheetmetal is complemented by the V-shaped grille, the stainless side trim, curved chrome bumpers, and the chevron-shaped taillights. But besides just investing in the factory fundamentals, this one has a great custom presence with the aggressive forward-leaning stance, shiny moon wheel covers, and cool pinstriping that is a bold standout from the bright Rangoon Red paint.Open the door, and it's hard to believe this is a machine from the 1940s. The tan and copper two-tone has the unmistakable look of a custom presentation on the plush door panels, carpeting, and headliner. Even the large trunk carries matching carpeting. Today we appreciate its size because it creates a great exterior style, but back in the day, this added space was loved by everyone from the traveling salesman to moonshiners. We particularly like the look of the bucket seats. Not only are they more comfortable than anything that came the '40s, but also the interiors two colors combine while showing off the cool diamond-stitched pattern. And from behind the wheel there are more great signs of investment. A grippy three-spoke steering wheel sits in front of a full gauge panel. And this is a clear indication of an upgrade under the hood, too.We love it when these cars are upgraded to larger V8s, but while most choose Chevy power, it's great to see this blue oval machine have its engine bay is full of Ford power. The 351 cubic-inch Cleveland V8 looks show-ready with its shiny valve covers, matching air cleaner, braided steel lines, and a block painted to match the exterior red. And beyond this cool appearance is some nice substance. This V8 has been upgraded with a large Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, aluminum intake, MSD ignition, and even an aluminum radiator to keep it all running cool. More than a great power package (with plenty of growl from the dual exhaust) there's also upgrades to feel good on the road. This includes the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes. The final touch is a new set of wide rear BF Goodrich T/As for added grip.The 1940 Ford Deluxe coupe is one of those icons that you'll always love, but rarely are they this affordable. So don't miss out, call today!
