SHOW-STOPPER BUILD, CUSTOM PAINT & INTERIOR, CRATE 350 V8, 700R4, 4-DISCS, A/C!!
This 1940 Ford Standard coupe is an all-steel rod that we're proud to offer in our extensive stable of similar amazing pieces. The '40 Ford's popularity can't be denied, and with a gorgeous blue metallic paint job, purple ghost flames, and a matching ultra leather interior, this coupe is an awesome choice for the guy who would rather drive his car than turn a wrench.
Finished just a few years ago and showing less than 8500 shake-down miles, the builder wisely chose to leave Henry's almost perfectly styled bodywork as the factory made it. That means no chopped top, no shaved trim, and laser-straight bodywork. The two-stage urethane paint has just a hint of metallic in it, enough to make it glow in the sunlight, but not so much that it is overpowering, and the elegant electric blue color is one of the most popular, then and now. Ghost flames lock along the nose, showing up when the light's just right and outlined in purple for a wonderful effect. The original trim has been preserved and restored to show condition, with fresh chrome bumpers, beautiful headlight surrounds, and that characteristic V-shaped grille up front, which was actually almost identical to the 1939 Deluxe grille (Ford made last year's Deluxe models into the following year's Standards). Out back, the chevron-shaped taillights are original and so cool that thousands of non-1940 Fords have borrowed them for style alone. Hinge-mounted "peep" mirrors have been mounted on both sides, and all the stainless has been polished to a show-quality shine.
Wilson Brother's ultra leather give the interior a feel akin to a late-model luxury vehicle, and the driver's side bucket seat offers power adjustments to make long-distance cruising a pleasure. The original dash remains intact, with a custom billet instrument panel full of Dakota Digital gauges keeping an eye on the engine's vitals. A gorgeous leather-wrapped banjo steering wheel successfully combines originality and luxury, and the tilt column also carries the shifter for the automatic transmission. Other features include power windows, cruise control, and a neatly integrated HVAC system in the dash. Speakers hidden in the kick panels and in the rear package area are powered by an AM/FM/CD head unit with a remote control and a 6-disc CD changer hidden out of sight. The rear seats have been eliminated, and in their place is a beautifully sculpted storage area, with a trunk fully upholstered in matching materials with gorgeous sculpted accents.
Thanks to a Vortec 350 cubic inch Chevy crate motor, nice cam and roller rocker arms, cruising is effortless, yet with a lot of pop. With an eye on reliability and comfort, the engine was fitted with an Edelbrock Air Gap carb and intake, a Crane valvetrain, and a set of block-hugging exhaust headers that are easy to package and help control under-hood heat and noise. Chevrolet also served up a set of chrome valve covers and there's a matching air cleaner up top, which works well with the polished aluminum accessories. The highly detailed Ford frame has been fitted with a Fatman chassis w/ front and rear sway bars, A-arm front suspension with disc brakes (at all 4 wheels) and rack-and-pinion steering, while a 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission handles the gear changes and exhaust rumbles through a dual Flowmasters. Out back, a Ford 9-inch hangs on leaf springs which complement the lowered front end, giving the car a classic rake. Skinny 195/65/15 front and fat 225/70/15 tires have been fitted to a set of polished Torque Thrust wheels, a look that simply never goes out of style.
This is an awesome, clean Ford V8 that's ready to rumble and offers superlative build quality, impressive engineering, and great colors that attract a ton of attention. Call today!
