For Sale: 1940 Ford Coupe in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars Indianapolis is proud to present this stunning 1940 Ford Resto mod Business Coupe! Every now and then one comes along with that extra bit of style and panache, and this one is it! Red ghost flames caress the familiar front fenders of this glossy black beauty, complimented by crisp chrome with its own lipstick red detail! Hidden in the hood brightwork is the 'secret' handle to open the front bonnet to reveal a fresh, powerful Chevy 350 V8 guided by a tough-as-nails TH-200-4R transmission, allowing the engines 4th gear to rotate at lower RPM than the original three-speed, saving gas and engine wear! This slightly lowered for cool appeal (but not slammed) machine has been updated with power steering, power disc brakes, all new wiring harnesses, ice-cold air-conditioning by Vintage Air, Budnick Mags, new Rack and Pinion Steering, upgraded rear end and a sharper than sharp two-tone, Red on White leather interior, including seats, headliner and door panels. The dash is crisp and elegant, with its, old-style 'tac and pin' striping, chrome and aluminum appointments, and a serious tachometer for when you are doing more than the speed limit allows! The steering wheel alone, is a piece of art- A spectacular Art-Deco lacquer with reduced ribbed grips and a 'V-8' etched into the horn button housing-try not to just sit and stare at it when you get in-it is truly sublime! Even the electric wipers work! But that isn't all -this has the most important feature that all serious collectors want-this bucket is steel! Front to back, chrome bumper to gleaming bumper, the burly front fenders, up over the hood and down the graceful slope of the rear deck lid and door to door- ALL CLEAN STRONG STEEL! You won't have to worry about tucking this bad-boy away for those chilly gray months either, there is a battery disconnect hidden under the front seat! This example is available for viewing exclusively at the Indianapolis showroom, housing a stunning array of muscle, exotic, classic and antique motor cars!
