This beautiful 1940 Ford Deluxe is one of the most coveted body styles in the hot rod and street rod communities. These cars have been getting chopped and channeled since they became popular and there are very few left that have been untouched which makes this car even more desirable than most of the others like it. This Ford Deluxe was part of the collection of the race car driver, Mike Amalfitano, it was then placed in his museum until he passed away in 2009. It has underwent a full frame off restoration and was made to look like a true hot rod from the 50's without cutting up any of the original metal. The flathead V8 has had Offenhauser finned aluminum heads put on as well as an Offenhauser dual carb intake with a set of Stromberg 97 Carburetors topping it all off. After the combustion chambers, the Fenton headers allow the exhaust fumes to escape with ease through the free-flowing true dual exhaust that runs the full length of the car. The electronics run off of a 12 volt system and has had the period correct cloth-wrapped wiring rerun throughout the car. With the updated electrical system allows some modern creature comforts to be added like the aftermarket stereo that is nicely hidden in the glove box. This car is a true survivor and would make an excellent hot rod for someone looking for a good cruiser or show car.
