For Sale: 1940 Ford Deluxe in Volo, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Same owner the last 21 years. This is very nice example of a 82 year old car. It is very well sorted. This car fires up and runs perfectly everytime for us. We have a folder of receipts and 7 page itemized list of work that was done.

EXTERIOR: All steel body and fenders. It shows really well. It is straight and fits real nice. The doors shut like a new car. The black paint is polished very smooth and glossy. It presents itself really well but upon closer inspection you will find there are tiny pimples in the paint and and minor imperfections. The chrome isn't new but shines nice. Both bumpers have optional wing tips and bumper guards. It also has an optional spotlight and dual mirrors. The wheels have the deluxe trim rings, the center caps have been replaced. The running boards have been recovered. The glass is all good. What are some differences between the standard and deluxe? The deluxe offered chrome headlight bezels, moldings that run down the sides of the car, dual tail lights and a 3 piece grill.

INTERIOR: A premium LeBaron Bonney upholstery kit was installed. This included a headliner, door panels, carpet, rubber mat, kick panels and seat upholstery. The dash, trim, gauges, knobs are in good condition.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The Flathead V-8 was overhauled in 2004. Runs as smooth as a Rolex watch. The components all look clean and proper. It has reproduction hoses and clamps, correct plug wires. The fuel pump, carburetor and distributor all look proper. It has dual trumpet horns. Upgraded optima gel battery.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: LeBaron Bonney trunk panel set was installed. The rubber mat has Ford script. It has a matching whitewall tire that's never been used for spare. The jack assembly is included. There's a car cover too.

UNDERSIDE: It looks like a proper, solid underside. Upgraded dual exhaust with glass pack mufflers and stainless tips.

Not a perfect frame off restored car but a great looking honest car. I love how well it runs, the idle is so smooth!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
