For Sale: 1940 Ford Deluxe in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa Florida is proud to present this highly desirable 1940 Ford Deluxe Convertible. This is an original, steel body and fender car with a bag of money thrown at it. From the eye-popping, Chrome Yellow PPG paint to the Fatman Frame underneath, nothing was left to chance! These old Fords are considered classic for their round clean body lines and that venerable flathead V8. Although the owner loved the 40s lines, he had a need for speed when it came to the motivation. Under the hood is a rebuilt, fuel injected, LT-1 350 Chevy V8, spinning a 700R4 transmission, followed up with a 3:70 rear end. This thing will snap your neck back with authority. The engine is monitored by a Street and Performance Multi-Port EFI. This allows for rock solid reliability and respectable fuel economy and the motor is docile enough to spin those desirable "comfort" focused accessories without breaking a sweat. This 40 Ford makes life easy with Vintage Air AC and Heat, a Mustang II rack with power steering, leather wrapped buckets along with a full custom leather-wrapped interior! The interior is finished in very complimentary ultra-tan leather, with gold bezel wrapped gauges and wood accents abound. As if riding in luxury and style isn't enough; this 40 Ford Deluxe takes the ride and handling into the 21st century as well. It rides on polished Carrera coil-overs at all four corners and up front the old beam axle was ditched in favor of road holding - polished - upper and lower A-Arms. Just about everything on this 1940 Ford was customized, upgraded or enhanced. There are so many new parts - except for the body and fenders - it may as well be ALL NEW. This car is a fantastic head turner that you can take to shows and cruise around with pride! Call us today to make this beauty yours!
