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

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Chicago is proud to present this resto-modded 1940 Ford Tudor. Under the hood is a very rare powerplant. Your eyes don't deceive you, this Ford is powered by a 345 cubic inch DeSoto Hemi V8. The Hemi is wearing a pair of 4-bbl carburetors, and the only modification from stock came during a rebuild in 2015 as the addition of a spin-on oil filter. A 3-speed manual transmission puts the driver in control of the gears, and power is sent to the rear 3.53 open differential. The engine has been in this Ford for a long time, as the current owner purchased the car in the late '50s for only $10, and swapped the engine in themselves! In 1960 he sold the car, only to be reunited with it in 1995. The Ford is painted a beautiful Bright Red Metallic. If this '40 Ford could talk, it would have decades worth of stories about drag racing, late nights with friends, and car shows galore. Hop in the drivers seat and write the next chapter in the history of this clean '40 Ford.
