1940 Ford 2-Door Sedan VIN: 1103200718 Built by Ray Brown California car Chevy 350 crate motor, 350 Turbo automatic, 8-inch Ford rear end Modern performance, comforts and ride Hot rod builder Ray Brown's cars are known for their simplicity, stance and bulletproof reliability. This 1940 Ford is his latest effort. Starting with a rust-free, California car, Ray stripped it down to the component parts and began a truly stunning build. The goal was to create a car that's exterior and interior were as close to original looking as a Street Rod can be while providing modern performance and ride. The 2-Door Sedan is painted in Ford's Cloud Mist Grey. The trim and bumpers have all been plated or polished, and the glass replaced. The body is entirely stock. An American Autowire wiring loom runs through the car, and is all 12 volt. Under the hood, the new Chevy 350 crate motor has 260 HP and 350 ft/lbs torque, and features 327 valve covers, Edlebrock Performer carb, HEI ignition, and rams-horn exhaust manifolds. It's backed by a rebuilt 350 Turbo transmission with a 2000 rpm stall converter. The chassis features a TCI independent front suspension with power rack and pinion steering, sway bar, and power disc brakes. The 8-inch Granada drum-brake rear end is hung from parallel leaf springs and features 2.79 gears for effortless long-distance cruising. The frame, rear end housing, backing plates, bumper brackets and inner fender panels are all powder-coated. The Wheels Vintiques wheels are 5 x 14 up front, 8 x 15 out back. They're pinstriped in the same Cloud Mist Grey, and run correct '40 Standard hubcaps and multi-ribbed trim rings. Inside, the car is not as Spartan as it appears. Hidden behind the center dash panel are a host of modern comforts: a Custom Autosound sound system, with 10 CD changer in the trunk; Vintage Air air conditioning; wiper controls; and modern multi-level heater controls. The cabin has full insulation and sound deadening that help keep it quiet and cozy. While the steering column is from a 70's era Chevy van, the steering wheel is a 15-inch version of the classic '40 Deluxe. On a stalk below are the controls for the Dakota Digital cruise control system. The dash houses an original gauge cluster that's been fully restored and converted to 12 volts. Other than the beautifully stock appearance of interior and exterior, you'd be hard pressed to believe you were behind the wheel of a 73-year-old car. The driving experience of a Ray Brown Rod is second to none. -
