STEEL BODY, 350 V8, 4 SPEED, MUSTANG II FRNT, COILOVERS, PWR STEER, FRNT DISCS!

1940 Ford Deluxe coupes are one of the most sought-after classics. With a small block Chevy V8, a nicely finished interior, and plenty of charisma, it might seem like the price is a misprint on this bright red coupe. But instead you're just looking at a fleeting opportunity to own the '40 you've always wanted at a value price.

The 1940 Ford is incredibly popular with restorers and rodders alike, thanks to its combination of timeless good looks and practical comfort. There are no radical modifications on this body. Instead, there has been a good restoration to the iconic features like the V-shaped grille, the stainless side trim, curved chrome bumpers, and the chevron-shaped taillights. One piece that is definitely not original is the paint. The bight red is from a modern palette that's been applied in the last few years. It has the perfect color to glisten in the sunlight, that acts like a beacon at the car shows. The Pacer five-spoke alloy wheels complete the attention-grabbing style.

Inside the black and gray interior offers the ideal mixture of old and new. The front cloth bucket seats feature a level of comfort unknown in 1940, but from the driver's seat, you look out on an original dash, and grab the cool stock two-spoke tilt steering wheel. Of course there is no mistake that this one is anything but custom because beyond the original wheel is a full set of AutoMeter gauges in a custom inset. Plus, the tall four-speed manual stick shift gives you a nice place to rest your arm. You can install the original-style AM radio that's currently stored in the spacious trunk, but it will still never outshine the exhaust rumble that's pure automotive music.

Before popping the hood, you better put on sunglasses. This 350 cubic-inch Chevy small-block V8 has been specially built for both show and speed. Beyond the look-at-me chrome are features such as Weiand Hi-Rise intake, Carter 750 CFM aluminum four-barrel carburetor, and custom headers. You have complete control over this power with a Borg Warner T10 four-speed manual transmission. This hooks up to a Ford nine-inch rear end, but the control and comfort doesn't end there. Up front there's a Mustang II-style Heidt independent suspension, and the rear is a coilover with KYB gas shocks. Plus, this is a power steering car that also comes with front disc brakes.

There's a lot to love in this beautiful 1940 Ford. It is well restored, and has the documentation to prove it. For a car you can drive cross-country, and still show with pride, you'd be hard-pressed to find one that's better...and at this price, they dont last in our showroom. Call today!!
