For Sale: 1934 Ford Model 40 in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

If you like the iconic look of the late '30s Fords, smooth flathead V8 power, and sporty roofline, this 1934 Ford Phaeton is just waiting for you to drive it home.

The phaeton body style has a thin roofline opening up the car even with the top in place. That gives this American classic a very European feel. So while it was far from the most expensive car Ford offered in 1934, today it has a tremendous sporty profile that keeps it, especially in demand. This pre-war car has been treated correctly over the decades. For example, it has been repainted during its lifetime to ensure the sunlight can show off the high-gloss finish of this sunshine-friendly Ford. But it's done in a classic lacquer finish with the right classic tone. And we love how the red pinstripe nicely matches the wire wheels. To understand the full quality, look at how the nearly 90-year-old steel retains its sleek lines or how the doors can easily be opened and shut confidently. All the best details are right on this one, including the waterfall chrome grille, etched chrome bumpers with a center dip curve, whitewalls, and even the Ford V8 hubcaps. And the fantastic, sleek greyhound hood ornament gives the premium image this car deserves.

The gorgeous condition of the brown interior is another sign of proper care and investment over the years. The comfortable rows of leather bench seats look as inviting as your favorite easy chair. All the right details are in place, like the side wind deflectors and simulated wood-grain dash. It feels like an actual time machine experience as you slip behind the glossy black steering wheel, grab the tall shifter, and watch the classic gauges begin to do their dance.

Everyone from outlaws and enthusiasts loved Ford's awesome 221 cubic inch flathead V8. The tidy engine bay looks quite authentic, and it's even the correct 21-stud head setup. More importantly, these V8s gave Ford an unbeatable reputation of a powerful personality with a masterful amount of torque on tap. Like the rest of the car, the powerhouse has been well-respected and well-maintained. So it's a strong runner that fires up eagerly. The three-speed manual transmission has that ideal vintage mechanical feel and even easy double-clutch downshifts. It's about giving you confident but vintage control over a car made to have some time capsule fun out on the road.

Distinction, style, and true vintage appeal all come together in a well-done package. So if you love driving true classics and having all eyes on you, call now!
