Authentic, sleek, and plenty of flathead power - people are going
to take their time appreciating this 1940 Ford Super Deluxe because
you can just tell it has spent decades under the proper care.
A car that has spent over a quarter-century under the same owner is
obviously something special. In fact, we have receipts totaling
$31k of all the work done since the day it came into his hands in
1994. So you see this added quality in all the right places. For
example, the paint is a great glossy green that has a classic tone,
but there's also a hint of metallic that loves to radiate in the
sunlight. It loves to really show off the car's terrific flowing
lines - including the teardrop-like fender and overall profile.
Plus, you have a distinct shine from well-done brightwork on the
bumpers, intricate side trim, and grille. Even the wheels are
terrific with the bright hubcaps and color-matched steelies showing
off the whitewalls.
The reason to prefer a four-door sedan from this era is that the
suicide doors are just another one of those great details that make
this classic distinctive. Just like the exterior, you can tell
there was an investment inside in keeping this Ford feeling like a
time warp. The tan cloth on the seats is quite comfy. And the door
panels, headliner, and carpet piping were done to match. The
dual-spoke steering wheel feels grippy in your hands, and it gives
you a clear view at the original dash panel. While the full car has
an authentic look, they did add an AM/FM radio w/cassette hidden
away so you can have a vintage atmosphere but better driving
The engine bay looks both tidy and honest, and so it goes well with
the classic sedan's overall tone. Ford's flathead V8 was the power
choice for a whole generation, and the investments in this one mean
it remains a strong runner. Out on the road, this is unmistakable
vintage, but It also has a solid feel that comes from well-built
machinery. Plus, the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission
has a classic feel while giving you proper control.
Complete with the owner's manual and maintenance records, this is a
fun classic that's coming off of decades of proper care. So if you
truly appreciate classic motoring, call today!
