Gateway Classic Cars of Louisville is proud to present this 1940
Oldsmobile Coupe! Approaching the 40's it was an odd time between
finally recovering from the depression and on the brink of joining
the World at War, WWII. Oldsmobile a division of GM was looking to
bring a new model out in their rightful place alongside Buick in
the GM brand. Between Chevy and Pontiac on the lower end and
Cadillac on the top end. The cars that were made in this era come
from an iconic time and perhaps its more than their design, but the
real history that they hold that still appeals to so many today.
Here we have a '40 Model Coupe, far from it roots as she is now a
street rod, and if I may say tastefully done. The red and black
exterior paint has seen enjoyment on the road but still looks
really good. The red cloth interior is holding up well and creates
a nice balance in the tones. This car has an aggressive stance, and
the tunnel ram gives you a hint that there is something lurking
under the hood. The tunnel ram sits atop a Weiand Supercharger
latched to dual 4-barrel carburetors that feeds the rebuilt 350
small block. This car sounds amazing! Power is ran down through a
rebuilt 3-speed Turbo 400 transmission. Other items of note: Weiand
intake, electric fans, MSD ignition, trans cooler, camaro subframe,
front disc brakes, stainless steel fuel tank, Chevy rear end, and
electric fuel pump. Current owner has had her for 3 years, acquired
from a private owner. The title is clean and clear. This street rod
has a nice balance of looks and power for the money. Looking at
this ride you can see why they are so sought after. Options on this
Olds are: Power Steering, Power Brakes, Cloth Interior, AM/FM
Radio, Seat Belts, and Alloy Wheels. This 1940 Oldsmobile Coupe is
offered by our Louisville Showroom and can be seen in greater
