800 Derita Road, Ste. A
Watch this 1940 Ford Deluxe Sedan attract more attention with its patina than most do with their chrome. It has an awesome survivor-style personality both inside and out that we all love, and the flathead V8 has been given the right upgrades to make sure you can continue to show it off everywhere you want.
The minty green paint of this classic has genuine patina. The reason why we all flock to a look like this is because, no matter how much someone spends on a candy-coated finish, it just doesn't compare to the decades it takes to get this well-earned appearance. One look at this Ford, and people will wonder where it's gone and what has it seen in the last eight decades. In fact, we even suspect this could be the original factory paint application. So while the finish isn't perfect, many of us enthusiasts find perfection in presenting this kind of history. And for those who need a little extra flair on their classics, this one obliges, too. Half-chrome headlights, driver's spotlight, and bright whitewalls give this cruiser appeal.
Just like the exterior, the interior uses its originality as the main attraction. The pattern on the seat fabric and matching door panels has a cool factory-like style. The worn-in condition of the whole presentation is part of the constant reminder that this car has history. So you'll lover slipping behind the factory dual spoke steering wheel and feeling the worn-in grooves of the generations that came before you.
When you lift the hood, the dual hoses diving into the motor is the unmistakable look of Ford flathead V8 power. While this is a great classic powerhouse, you can also see there have been the right modern additions to keep it moving today. This includes a 12-volt upgrade, alternator, newer ignition, electric fuel pump, new gas tank, and an aluminum radiator. So this V8 fires up readily and is ready to hit the road. You'll love being in full control over this motor with the classic column-shifted three-speed manual transmission.
If you love history, then you know how cool this Ford is, and how rare it is to find a classic that has earned its personality. Don't miss you chance, call today!
