1940 Ford Deluxe Convertible The 1940 Ford has a beautiful look that has been the base for street rods all over the world. While customizing has its appeal the original appearance of these cars is one of the most beautiful examples of automotive design out there. From the fender shape to the perfect touches of trim these cars just reinforce the saying of "they don't make them like they used to." The all steel 1940 Ford Convertible you see here is undoubtedly one of the nicest still in existence. Its all original appearance always draws a crowd wherever it goes. The car was restored in 1997 by Hatfield Restorations who are known for their high quality work. It is painted all Black which contrasts perfectly with all of the original chrome and trim. The front/rear original bumpers are in place as are the original door handles, taillights, headlights, and antenna. The Buckskin convertible top is in great condition and all power operated from the factory. It is pretty neat to see original power options like that on a car that is over 70 years old! All of the glass on the car is in good shape and it has the correct 2 piece windshield up front. Under each corner are steel wheels with Ford Deluxe dog dish hubcaps but the car also comes with the original 600 16 wheels and tires. The steel wheels are painted to match the top and interior creating a great look. Powering the car is the original 239 flathead motor that runs and drives great. It is one of the smoothest idling flatheads you will come across. It was all rebuilt by a known flathead builder and great care was taking to maintain the original components. It is paired with a 3 speed manual transmission that shifts smoothly. A Columbia 2 speed rear end is found in back allowing the car to cruise down the road comfortably whether you are driving around town or getting on the highway. The interior of the car is done in Tan and the upholstery is from LeBaron Bonney. It utilizes the original split bench seat up front with a bench in the rear. The convertible top boot is very easy to put in place and fits well. The dash has that all original look and is fitted with all of the correct knobs, switches, etc. The original faux wood dark red/brown trim pieces are in place and match the original two tone steering wheel. A radio is in place but one of the knobs is not functioning correctly so a 2nd radio will come with the car in addition to the original wheels. Look around and you will see this is on of the classiest looking vintage cars out there. Add this classic to your collection for $63,250.00!
