Show stopping chopped sedan in Bright Red ... Red piped White interior ... Chromed small-block V-8 ... Ice cold air conditioning ...
Looking for a show stopping, trophy winning street rod that will grab everyone’s attention? This stunning 1940 Ford Deluxe 2-Door Sedan is just the one.
Finished in an eye-popping, laser straight Flame Red base coat/clear coat with a contrasting White tuck ‘n roll interior with Red piping, this car has been featured in StreetScene Magazine in 2005, 2006, and 2007. In addition, this car was the StreetScene Pick of the 2005 Street Rod Nationals North. It was also featured in the November 2006 issue of the Good Guys Goodtimes Gazette and has won numerous awards and trophies.
Originally a Texas car, this all-steel car was built by Robert’s Rod Shop in Toledo, Ohio in 2005. Its 2 ½” top chop and Merc-capped steelies provide the car with much distinction, as does its original chrome and bright-work, which are in excellent condition. Mechanical specifications include the following:
Fully chromed 283 CID small-block Chevy V-8
350 Turbo Hydra-matic automatic transmission
Dual Flowmaster exhaust
Ford 8” rear-end
Rack and pinion Mustang II independent front suspension
Front disc brakes
Walker aluminum radiator
Edelbrock 600 cfm carburetor
Edelbrock intake manifold
Chassis Engineering rear leaf spring suspension
Ron Francis wiring
Now having approximately 9,700 miles, this car runs and drives as well as it looks.
Comfort and convenience items were not overlooked in the build of this street rod and include the following features:
Ice cold air conditioning
10-disc CD/AM/FM stereo with remote
200 watt trunk amplifier
Cobra CB radio
VDO electronic gauges
Chrome tilt steering column
Custom center console
2-speed electric wipers
Power cowl vent
All power and convenience items work as they should, although it should be noted that the passenger’s side windshield wiper is not currently working.
Also of note is that a photograph album documenting the build of this car will be provided with sale, as will copies of all magazines in which the car has been featured. Selected trophies will be included as well.
Perhaps StreetScene Magazine sums this car up best in its January 2007 article:
“A vehicle like this StreetScene feature car is a perfect fit if you’ve got well over $50,000. The car is well detailed, has a flawless finish, runs great down the road, and should give you tens of thousands of miles of service. This level of car should fit just about anybody’s needs.”
