800 Derita Road, Ste. A
It's hard to find a real-deal vintage-style 1940 Ford Deluxe Convertible like this. This cool classic was often turned into a hot rod, but instead, any investments within the last 80+ years have all been about keeping an authentic style, right down to the whitewall tires and flathead V8.
Black is a timeless kind of color that's perfect for an iconic classic like this Forty-Ford drop-top. It's a respray that happened later in life, and that means a nice depth and glow. While you can always find room for improvement in the details, you should first take some time to see how this one offers a complete style while still giving a touch of age that helps tell the car's full story. We are told that until recently this was with a long-term owner for over 55 years. And you can really tell the overall level of respect it has received over the decades in how the panels line up straight and there are even gaps. You'll also appreciate the completeness of the brightwork package with the Art Deco V-shaped grille, detailed chrome bumpers (with overriders and end guards,) full-length trim, and two-piece Deluxe wheel covers. Even the white roof coordinates with the whitewall tires.
The tan interior has a simple classic appeal. Just like the exterior, it has the look of an older investment but quality long-term care. It means the upholstery, door panels, and carpeting look good, and it has an overall feeling like this is a classic with a story to tell. The details look great from the driver's seat, like the classic Ford gauges, clock, and dual-spoke steering wheel. So it's exactly what you want when looking for a time-machine level of cruiser fun.
Under the hood is a classic flathead V8. The motor is presented in quite stock and honest look, right down to the generator and oil bath air cleaner. And the way this starts easily and runs well continues the feeling of a long-term respected car. Plus, with the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission, you really do get the right classic drop-top feel when taking this one down the back roads.
This is a true vintage cruiser that gives you a proper nostalgic feeling. So if you truly appreciate classic motoring, you need this Forty Ford convertible. Call now!
