CORRECT 221CI FLATHEAD V8, YOSEMITE GREEN, GREAT PRE-WAR CAR, RUNS EXCELLENT!
When it comes to pre-war cars, there are many of who take notice when someone has gone the extra mile to keep it period-correct. This 1940 Ford Sedan deserves that kind of extra attention. It has received the correct care and investments so that every day can feel like 1940 all over again.
Long gone were the days when Henry Ford only offered a car only in black, and this factory-correct Yosemite Green is a bold reminder of this more individual spirit. It looks absolutely terrific, because this sedan is coming off of long term ownership, and he cherished this Ford. So not only was the paint professionally re-applied during its lifetime, but also all your favorite brightwork is in place. The bumpers (including guard and amber lights in front) are straight and crisp; the two-piece wheels are complete; and the grille draws attention to the powerful "V" shape pointed front. And the part we like best of all is the trim that runs like an unbroken line from the tip of the hood all the way until it follows the curve of the rear fender. This is truly period-correct motoring, right down to the running boards and whitewall tires.
Just like the exterior, you can tell there was an investment inside in keeping this Ford feeling like a time warp. The tan cloth on the seats gives you some added comfort, and the extra ribbed pattern in the centers coordinates nicely with the door panels. The dual-spoke steering wheel feels grippy in your hands, and it gives you a clear view at the original dash panel. We know you want this car because of its authenticity, and so you'll love seeing still on display from the gauges, to the heater, to the AM radio.
When you open the hood, you'll find a correct 221 cubic-inch Flathead V8, and it's believed-to-be this car's original engine. In fact, the total package with the oil bath air cleaner, tall carb, shiny dual hoses, and all those bolts on the flathead really keep up this 1940s feeling. And best of all, the investment went beyond just appearance. So this one has been maintained to start up easily and run smoothly. On the road, the legendary V8 provides a wonderful punch and a dual exhaust creates a great soundtrack. Plus, the three-speed manual transmission gives you full control over this very cool vintage sedan.
Rolling nostalgia is all about getting the best of what you remember, and this Ford Sedan is like a memory album on wheels. So whether you want to relive the '40s or experience them for the first time, this one is turn-key ready to turn back the clock. Don't miss out, call today!
