Car restoration is an art and this 1940 Ford Deluxe Coupe is a
sculpture. The current owner (7 years) completed most of the
restoration work in 2013. The coupe body was meticulously prepared
and beautifully re-sprayed 'Henry Ford' Black, a very popular color
back-in-the-day. Chrome-work is outstanding and red factory steel
wheels with caps/rings provide a stunning accent. The interior was
completely restored with period-correct taupe cloth, looks totally
original and is excellent. A beautiful two-tone dash with working
gauges is outstanding and the pair of rear jump-seats are classic.
This '40 Ford is powered by a 221ci flathead V8 that is believed to
be the original motor. It was rebuilt by Gilley's Garage, Pilot
Mountain, NC (2012), bored .030 over and stuffed with a mild
performance cam. The intake mounts a factory correct Holley 91-99
carburetor, the distributor is original and cooling is provided by
a state-of-the-art aluminum radiator. The little flathead runs
great and sounds even better. Behind the flathead, the 3-speed
manual transmission with column shifter. Hydraulic drum brakes
handle stopping requirements and the electrical system has been
upgraded to 12-volts. This '40 Deluxe Coupe is a classic Blue Oval
and a great performer - a wonderful piece of Ford history. It is
ready for your next hometown cruise-in. ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS
