HIGH-END ROTSSRIE RESTO & DEARBORN AWARD W/ 987 PTS! 221 V8, 3-SPD, BUILD RECPTS
Expertly restored to original condition, this 1940 Ford Tudor Sedan has been recognized as a true cut-above classic. So look over all the details, but don't take too long, because rarely will there ever be a V8 classic this authentic that will ever be within reach.
This '40 Ford not only looks amazing, but also it has been certified as amazing... and we have the paperwork to prove it! After this car finished its rotisserie restoration, it went to The Early Ford V8 Club of America's meet. We have the sheet that it scored 987 of 1,000 and was given the Dearborn Award. So yes, this classic really is as impressive as it looks in the pictures. Long gone were the days when Henry Ford only offered a car only in black, and this era-correct Sahara Sand is a bright reminder of this more individual spirit. It looks absolutely terrific, as you'd expect from such an award winner. The great gloss highlights the iconic curves of the 1940 Ford. And all the brightwork that make these such a star is still in place. The bumpers shine brightly; the grille has a powerful Art Deco V-shape; and the trim runs like an unbroken line from the tip of the hood all the way until it follows the curve of the rear fender. It's all finished off with the proper whitewall tires and two-piece Ford Deluxe wheel covers.
Just like the exterior, you can tell there was an investment inside in keeping this Ford feeling like a time warp. The beige cloth on the seats gives you some added comfort, and the correct ribbed pattern 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 dash panel and correct Deluxe gauges. We know you want this car because of its authenticity, and so you'll love seeing everything from the heater under the dash, to the to the correct AM radio still cranking out tunes.
When you open the hood, you'll find a correct 221 cubic-inch Flathead V8. The total package with the tall air cleaner, carb, dual hoses, and all those bolts on the flathead really keep up this one feeling like a time machine. And best of all, the investment went beyond just appearance. So this one has been maintained to be one of the smoothest running flatheads you'll find today. On the road, the column-mounted three-speed manual transmission shifts easily, and it provides good power for getting to gatherings with ease (there's even a car bra so you won't be picking bugs out of the grille when you arrive!)
The whole build, including the undercarriage photos, proves the meticulousness of this '40 Ford. The sale even comes with the build receipts, Dearborn Award, and plenty of valuable paperwork. More than just a great value, this is a great presentation of history. So if you truly appreciate classic motoring, call today!
