GREAT ORIGINAL, 221 FLATHEAD V8, 3 SPEED MAN, RESTO RECEIPTS, VERY NICE!!
Mustangs and Thunderbirds are certainly quick to come to mind when thinking about classic Fords, but one car that definitely has a solid fan base as well is the Ford Deluxe. When we get a car as nice as this 1940 Ford Deluxe in our showroom, it's going to get attention and it's going to move quick!
When you approach this car it's easy to realize the craftsmanship that went into this build. The liquid smooth panels display deep reflections in the burgundy hue. The chrome trim and bumpers look factory fresh. In fact, you could lose yourself into imagining that you were walking around a Deluxe that came straight off the assembly line. The doors shut with authority and panel gaps are near flawless...everything just fits like it should. The tan top lifts up manually and seals tightly to keep passengers comfortable. Overall, it's just a fine specimen of a car that was distinguished to be a 'marque within a marque' due to its luxurious and upscale feel.
The quality continues inside with a rich, tan interior that features a front and rear bench seat covered in taut tan vinyl. The door panels look great with wood grain topping the tan vinyl that features elegant piping. The tan and burgundy dash doesn't have any additional gauges or components, it looks just as it did when it the left the factory, and probably just as clean. Even the glove box opens and closes as it should without any struggle with fitment that can be common in cars of this era. Trimmed in wood grain, the split windshield is a pleasant view for the driver who manages shifts with a column mounted shifter.
Unlatch the hood to find a beautiful 221 cubic inch Flathead V8 that is nestled in a very clean engine bay. Again, nothing here is additional to the car...it's all just a great representation at what Ford produced over 70 years ago. Fire that engine to life and you'll have to remind yourself it is even running, that's how quiet and smoothly this engine operates. It sends power to a 3-speed manual transmission that turns the rear wheels. Those wheels are wrapped in 6.00/16 bias ply tires that maintain that authentic look.
With the finish this car presents, in the factory correct fashion it presents it in, you'll be itching to get it out to the show field. It's a smooth ride with a smooth finish and is just a joy to take out on a sunny day cruise. If you've been looking for a well-built Ford Deluxe, this car deserves your attention. Call today!
