Vehicle Description

STK 3191 1940 Ford Standard

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".
