For Sale: 1934 Ford Model 40 in St. Louis, Missouri

Vehicle Description

At first glance, the 1934 Fords didn't look all that different than the 33's, and Ford ads even boasted that "There is nothing experimental about this new car." But there were some useful engineering changes and an attractive facelift to grill and hood louver design. The 1934 V-8 also boasted 10 more horsepower, for a total of 85. All in thanks to trading the problematic Detroit Lubricator carbs for a new two-barrel version mounted on top a newly designed intake manifold.

Seldom seen in its original form anymore, as many have migrated into customs, it's a true delight to find one restored to a more original era specification. We are pleased to offer this fantastic, original steel 1934 Ford Model 40 Victoria Sedan finished in Sahara Tan with Red wheels and pinstripe over Tan & Brown two-tone Bedford cloth interior. Fitted with special deluxe options like dual cowl lights, dual taillights, dual horns, cowl ventilation, cigarette lighter, glove box, adjustable front seat, and overhead dome light. Additional options include a driver side mirror, working AM radio, rearview mirror clock, and Arvin interior heater (in-op fan motor).

A wonderful looking and great driving car! The correct 221ci Flathead 21-stud engine and 3-speed manual transmission operate smoothly and easily. A brand new 6-volt battery provides reliable starts and ease of storage with a disconnect attached for times of storage. Firestone Deluxe Champion 5.25-5.50 wide whitewall tires and a rear-mounted full spare tire with steel cover really make the car stand out and add to its already striking good looks! This car was also upfitted with hydraulic brakes for added safety while driving on today's roads, in addition to an auxiliary electric fuel pump, engine oil filter, and under dash oil pressure gauge. Although not original, those modifications are a welcome addition if one plans on enjoying the car.

As seen in the photos this is a very solid steel car with paint that does show well although it does have a slight patina to it having been repainted over 20 years ago. The interior is much newer and was completed with high quality and correct wool materials. The mechanicals were said to have been restored under previous ownership and the condition would reflect that. It has been preserved with a former Montana Ford collector who housed a rather impressive personal Ford Museum collection for the past 20 years. He located this car from Arizona when he acquired it. We believe the mileage on the odometer to be original, however we do not have enough documentation to support an original mileage claim and thus is being sold mileage exempt. The Ford Victoria made up a very small percentage of 1934 production, accounting for under 4% of the total vehicles produced for resale. Today, these unmodified examples are highly coveted! We do have a clear Missouri title for this car utilizing its original Ford vehicle number located on the factory chassis. We would be happy to answer any questions you may have and can assist with Worldwide shipping if needed.
