1940 Ford 2 Door SedanHistoryThe 19371940 generation of Fords is one of the most popular automobiles for hot rodding. Early stock car racing drivers also used Fords of this generation among other cars. This Ford also formed the basis for a style of dirt track racing car.A high flattopped hood dominated the front look of the 1940 model as the grille spread out to reach the fenders to differentiate the Deluxe line and the headlights were pushed wider still. The standard Ford inherited the grille of the 1939 model with blackout on each side of a heavy chrome center; heavier headlight surrounds serve as another major differentiator from the 1939. 1940 was the last year of the 1937 design and its smaller V8 engine with a straight6 to be reintroduced the following year. Sealedbeam headlights were one of the few major advances for 1940 though a hydraulic top was new on the convertible.VIN 05696880 The previous owner of this beautiful Ford bought the car in 2012 from an Illinois man who didn't know a lot about the history of the car. The restoration was completed in 2011. The previous owner replaced the condenser and compressor for the AC. The digital mileage was never set but we were told the car has roughly 1500 miles on the restoration.
