For Sale: 1940 Ford Deluxe in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

The 1940 Ford Deluxe Sedan is a true pre-WWII icon. With flathead V8 power, suicide doors, and a sleek style, it's a true treat. So as you look over all the details on this quite correct example, you soon realize how much nostalgia it packs for quite an obtainable price.

Maroon is always a great color to have on a pre-war classic. It sets the tone right for the period. But the overall design is why many of us cherish the '40 Ford Deluxe. They got the style right with an update that gave a more dignified look to the sharply-pointed front end. Its premium sibling at Lincoln undoubtedly inspired it, meaning that the every-man car could now drive with extra pride. These have terrific details, like the teardrop headlight bezels and full-length sweeping trim. And whitewall tires are always such an attention-getter that we love seeing them on proper color-mated wheels with two-piece trim.

The reason to prefer a four-door sedan from this era is that the suicide doors are just another great detail that makes this classic distinctive. And once you get inside, you'll enjoy many classic details. It's in everything from the passenger grab handles to how the cloth on the bench seats coordinates with the door panels - right down to the raised stripe pattern. The dash is nostalgic with the art deco-style markings on the gauges. And we like how the correct dual-spoke steering wheel lets you feel the generation that came before you. But while this feels like a pure 1940s machine, there are well-integrated worthwhile upgrades. After all, you can feel that the cloth upholstery is much fresher than anything from the 1940s, and there are even electric windshield wipers.

There's just something great about the appearance of Ford's Flathead V8. The parallel radiator piping gives this motor a powerful presence, and the full presentation here looks well-maintained. How this one fires up, and runs reaffirms the feeling of quality care. And if you've been attracted to this car's true classic style, you'll love the true classic feeling the rive gives you, right down to the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission.

We like this one because it has a great nostalgic feel and the right strong motor and overall driver-quality style to make it great for driving on a whim. So if you want to experience true nostalgia out on the road, it's time to grab this iconic Ford. Call now!
