Description

FLATHEAD V8, ALL ORIGINAL CAR, LIGHTLY RESTORED BUT MOSTLY UNTOUCHED, DROP TOP

Before there was the Mustang or the Thunderbird, there was no cooler ways to have V8 power than this 1940 Ford Deluxe convertible. So when you can get your hands on an example that's so correct and complete, you know this is a crowd pleaser.

As you look over this convertible take a moment to appreciate what you're really seeing. This Ford is over 75 years old, which means there has been more than one generation looking after the sheetmetal and investing in the right care and maintenance. The result is a car that looks exactly as it should. It hasn't been chopped or hot rodded. Instead, the maroon paint has a soft glow that helps it look period-correct, and the tan folding roof fits with the tightness of quality. All the chrome and brightwork trim is complete – from the sweeping side trim, to the Ford badging, to the wraparound chrome bumpers with stylish endcaps. And on a package this authentic, only two-piece wheels with tall white wall tires will do.

The quality continues inside with a rich, tan interior that features a front and rear bench seat covered in taut vinyl. The door panels look great with wood grain topping the tan vinyl that features elegant piping. When you slip behind the two-spoke factory wheel, it feels like a time machine. The speedometer and whole dash feel so authentic, it might even be the original factory paint on this layout. There's a package with more modern oil and water gauges neatly mounted blow the dash, which is an indication that there might be something a little extra under the hood.

There's just something great about the appearance of Ford's Flathead V8. The parallel radiator piping gives this motor a very powerful presentation. And this is the larger of the two offerings Ford had at the time, so the 221 cubic-inch motor is a great feature to have. It has been serviced correctly (including one unconfirmed rebuild) so it starts well and runs with a telltale smoothness. While we know you won't be using this drop top as a hot rod, the column-shifter three-speed manual really lets you understand the full power behind this V8, and it makes every day behind the wheel feel like Sunday.

A very correct appearance with Flathead V8 power - this is the classic Ford for the true vintage driver. You know opportunities like this are rare, so hurry up and call today!
