Stk. 2278 1940 Ford Coupe
When the '40 Ford rolled off the assembly line, it was a car with a function that it performed very well - nothing fancy. Now, decades later, this Standard coupe has received a nice restoration with some well thought-out mechanical and cosmetic enhancements. The owner has put just over 1,000 miles on the car since completion of the restoration in 2015. Outside, the exterior was refinished in Tuxedo Black and sports very nice chrome all around. The interior has been beautifully reupholstered in pleated Burgundy leather - seats, door cards and trunk were finished superbly. A set of classic Dolphin Quad Gauges housed in a custom insert meld perfectly into the factory dash. Turn signal lights were added for safety and period correct knobs complete the interior package. The Ford Standard is powered by a 239ci flathead that was rebuilt in 2009 and has run less than 3,000 miles since the build. An MSD electronic ignition was added for substantially more firepower and the 3-speed manual transmission has a factory '3-on-the-tree' column shift.,12 volt system.Suspension is stock with manual steering, new drum brakes and new 15" tires mounted on steel wheels with stock 'dog-dish' hubcaps and trim rings. This little '40 has been tweaked in just the right ways - it is a fun ride. Call 800-650-1055 or visit our website at www.autobarnclassiccars.com for additional information. ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS"
