For sale in our Chicago showroom is a very original 1940 Ford Deluxe convertible. The design of this ford began in 1939 and ran just until 1940. This car became so loved by car enthusiasts that many were converted into hot rods but not this one. The convertible model is the most coveted amongst collectors and after driving this classic with the top down you will understand why. This Ford was well equipped for its time and featured a power convertible top that is controlled by vacuum - not bad for a car that is 76 years old. This car also had a radio, wind up clock and the scarce dual-trumpet horn that sounds fantastic. Under the hood you will find the original Ford Flathead V8 that starts up immediately and is very quiet and smooth just like they were known for. After being purchased in the early 1970's by the original owner this car was stored in a climate controlled facility. In order to make sure this car is roadworthy the car was given a fresh tune up, new brake shoes, wheel cylinders, carburetor overhaul and all fluids changed. Nice original cars are becoming increasingly hard to come by and this car has been preserved in the original state and has had only 1 repaint in 76 years. If you have been looking for that classic convertible that is reliable and easy to maintain now is your chance.
