For Sale: 1940 Ford Deluxe in Mooresville, North Carolina


Vehicle Description

HIGHLIGHTS: Gorgeous color combination! Dark blue paint on red interior, this honey looks incredible with the top down! This stunning restoration has just come out of a private collection, and is sure to turn heads anywhere you take it. With a Flathead V8 and a 3-on-the-tree, this 1940 Ford Deluxe is sure to put a smile on your face!

BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this Deluxe is clean, straight, and solid-just the way it should be. With every curve and styling element just as crisp as they would've been from factory, accented by the deep blue paint, this car is sure to be a show-stopper at any local event. The 1940 Ford is a classic for the ages, but as a convertible, you just can't take your eyes off of this one!

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: With a deep gloss and a mirror finish, the beautiful dark blue paint looks almost black until it's out in the sunlight. There are some very minor scratches here and there that come with use, but this car has clearly been well-kept since it was restored.

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: Much like the exterior of this car, the interior is in beautiful condition showing minimal signs of use. The red seats are incredibly eye catching, and go excellently with the exterior color. Many cars from this era were finished in "drab" colors, and this '40 Ford is far from it! There is some wear showing on the driver's side of the front bench seat, but the interior has held up well since the restoration and shows the level of care this car has received.

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Though this car was restored several years ago, it still looks and feels fresh. Under the hood is a good old Ford Flathead V8. The perfect choice for powering a car like this, the Flathead sounds great and is more than enough to have a good time in this little convertible. This car runs great, sounds great, and is perfect for summer cruising with the top down!

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The color combination!

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: Given the stellar condition of this car, it would be hard to nitpick beyond minor wear.

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? The headlights, taillights, and wipers are not currently operational.

WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Whether you're looking to add to an existing collection, start a new one, or just to have something neat in your garage, this 1940 Ford Deluxe Convertible would be a great choice.
