Description:
1940 Ford Deluxe The clean styling of Ford\'s 1940 offerings was one factor that drove sales to more than five hundred thousand units, a jump of more than fifty percent over the previous year. Part of this popularity could no doubt have been attributed to Eugene Bob Gregorie\'s influence on the stylists who penned this design while he was chief of Ford\'s design department, a post that he held from 1935 to 1943. It was a freshening up of a styling concept first introduced in 1939 by the addition of a new front end design. Sealed beam headlights were offered for the first time by the automaker on the 1940 model. Aside from being a major safety improvement, their design contributed considerably to the new look. For consignment, a 1940 Deluxe hardtop hot rod if you will, and in tasteful form. The design was so wildly popular among hot rodders, Ford actually sold the rights to the design in later years so they could be reproduced in fiberglass. This car is all metal, retains its beautiful bulbous design, running boards, and nice chrome abounding. A chopped top, and 427 cubes of Ford iron with 2 x 4\'s to feed it fossils and air, putting out an Earth rotating 425hp. A breath of fresh air here in our hallowed halls of Classic Auto Mall. Exterior All steel, bathed in very nice Dark Cherry Metallic 2 stage paint, adorned with near perfection chrome bumpers, (courtesy a 1949 Plymouth), and brite-work, we have a rolling work of art. Very little was left unturned on this restoration, as lines are straight, gaps are really nice, and steel is straight. The front and rear of the car have been shaved to simplicity, and the top has been chopped 2.5 inches. The large teardrop shaped, visored sealed beam headlamp bezels flank a horizontal ribbed curved V grille and tall louvered hood center. A nice chromed spear works its way back on either side along the beltline of the slightly curved sides. At the gracefully curved rear of this car, we see 2 V shapes Sergeant Stripe like taillights almost getting lost in the deep field of Dark Cherry paint but managing to hold their own. Gleaming Cragar wheels are polished up and on all 4 corners. Interior A swing of the door, and we shake hands with custom leather stitched tuck and roll and smooth panels playing together to make up the door panels. Shiny door handles and window cranks are within this field of beige leather and not a mark on them. Slipping inside just beautiful tight tuck and roll stitched and piped edged leather buckets are in the door panel beige. These chairs are nice and wide with neatly curved backs so they offer up plenty of room. A wood rimmed Grant steering wheel fronts the dash, which is now all custom covered in mahogany veneer, and highlighted across its width by Stewart-Warner gauges, and LED indicator lights. Very nice brown carpeting floods the floor, and a Hurst Competition Plus shifter with a leather boot, and a mahogany wood topper reaches for the driver\'s right hand. Wonderfully comfy and ergonomically laid out for the most discriminating hot rod driver! A shout out to the trunk which is also dressed up to the nines in beige and has a new clean matching spare within its confines. Drivetrain A flip of the bulbous louvered hood, and we are met with an equally massive 427ci V8 Ford powerplant in chromed and polished splendor and has the ability to pump out 425hp. This is an actual 1963 427ci crossbolted engine and it has correct HP heads. On top are dual 4-barrel Holley carburetors and the intake manifold with both being correct for this year engine. On the back is a 4-speed manual Toploader transmission and this pushes power rearward to a Dana 44 rear axle. A 5-inch recessed firewall is now seen, and all this bling is kept cool by a Walker radiator. Undercarriage Very clean and totally restored, no rust here with front disc brakes and rear drum brakes providing the whoa factor. A like new glasspack exhaust system snakes its way rearwar
