A Ford 'Standard' model from the '40s is more difficult to find
than a 'Deluxe' model. Standards as nice as this one are even more
rare. This 1940 Ford Standard 2-door sedan is stunning, said to
have spent the last 12 years in a Virginia car museum. It is solid
- no rust on floors, quarters ... anywhere. It was partially
restored (2004) including a nice respray of Henry Ford Black, a
very popular color back-in-the-day. All chrome-work is outstanding.
Factory steel wheels w/caps/rings mount Coker/Garfield wide-white
bias tires and provide a stunning accent. The interior, completely
restored with period-correct tan leather (an option in 1940), looks
totally original and is excellent. A beautiful dash holds working
gauges and the original AM radio (currently inop). Door cards and
headliner are excellent. This Ford is powered by the 239ci flathead
V8 w/factory correct Holley-94 carburetor. It is said to be the
correct motor, not rebuilt and virtually stock. Recent maintenance
includes plugs, coil, rebuilt distributor, fuel system service, new
electric fuel pump and new dual exhaust. The electrical system has
been upgraded to handle an 8-volt battery and a rebuilt generator
w/8.1v voltage regulator has been installed. The big flathead runs
great and sounds even better. It is backed by a 3-speed manual
transmission with column shift. Both the transmission and clutch
are very smooth and hydraulic drum brakes handle stopping
requirements. This '40 Standard Sedan is a classic Blue Oval and a
great performer - a wonderful piece of Ford history. It is ready
for your next hometown cruise-in. ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS".
