This 1940 Ford 2-door sedan streetrod has the slick look that instantly signals a solid investment. And more than just dayglow paint, you have a fresh and full package with shinning small block power, an overdrive transmission, custom/comfy A/C interior.
The Tudor round backs have a fastback sensibility that lends itself to a lowered and raked stance (and you still keep the backseat practicality.) You\'re looking at Henry Ford era steel that has been carefully eyed before the paint ever went down. So the Lime Metallic has a radiance in the sunshine that really lets the light show off this fantastic shape. The re-chromed bumper and grille have the kind of shine that shows there\'s been some real care. Plus, there\'s plenty of great timeless hot rod touches like the blue dot headlights and the 15-inch Coys torque thrust-style wheels. And since the build was completed only about 550 miles ago, you have a freshness to the look that adds to the overall quality feel.
This is a very thoughtful custom-built interior, and that\'s evident from the moment you open the door. The low-back bucket seats have a classic look but offer better bolstering. And there are nice touches, like how the pattern of the rear bench matches the side panels. You grab the Lokar shifter with your right hand, and the left one will love the chrome sports steering wheel. It\'s mounted on a polished tilt column to give you a clear view of the classic-style Stewart Warner gauge package. It\'s a classic built for driving, and so you also have the right handy upgrades, like power windows, an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input, and cold air conditioning running modern R134a.
Since the rest of the car is built to show off, you\'ll be happy to see the engine bay is, too. The valve covers, air grabber, alternator, upgraded pulleys, and more all have a bright and fresh look that radiates from within the dark inner walls. Beyond the flash, there\'s the substance of a Chevy 350 cubic-inch small block V8 that has been upgraded with pieces like a Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, MSD 6AL ignition, and shorty headers feeding the rumbling dual exhaust. It\'s a strong-running powerhouse, and the fresh build means it has a confident feeling on the road. Plus, features like power steering, power brakes w/front discs, and four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive make this classic a comfortable highway cruiser. And even if you\'re stuck in traffic, the aluminum radiator w/electric fan means this car can stay cool while you\'ve got the A/C blowing.
A custom appearance wrapped around everyday appeal: that\'s why you want this \'40 Ford. But you\'re not the only one who appreciates a total package, so hurry up and call today!
