Authentic, sleek, and plenty of flathead power - people are going to take their time appreciating this 1940 Ford Super Deluxe because you can just tell it has spent decades under the proper care.
A car that has spent over a quarter-century under the same owner is obviously something special. In fact, we have receipts totaling $31k of all the work done since the day it came into his hands in 1994. So you see this added quality in all the right places. For example, the paint is a great glossy green that has a classic tone, but there's also a hint of metallic that loves to radiate in the sunlight. It loves to really show off the car's terrific flowing lines - including the teardrop-like fender and overall profile. Plus, you have a distinct shine from well-done brightwork on the bumpers, intricate side trim, and grille. Even the wheels are terrific with the bright hubcaps and color-matched steelies showing off the whitewalls.
The reason to prefer a four-door sedan from this era is that the suicide doors are just another one of those great details that make this classic distinctive. Just like the exterior, you can tell there was an investment inside in keeping this Ford feeling like a time warp. The tan cloth on the seats is quite comfy. And the door panels, headliner, and carpet piping were done to match. The dual-spoke steering wheel feels grippy in your hands, and it gives you a clear view at the original dash panel. While the full car has an authentic look, they did add an AM/FM radio w/cassette hidden away so you can have a vintage atmosphere but better driving music.
The engine bay looks both tidy and honest, and so it goes well with the classic sedan's overall tone. Ford's flathead V8 was the power choice for a whole generation, and the investments in this one mean it remains a strong runner. Out on the road, this is unmistakable vintage, but It also has a solid feel that comes from well-built machinery. Plus, the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission has a classic feel while giving you proper control.
Complete with the owner's manual and maintenance records, this is a fun classic that's coming off of decades of proper care. So if you truly appreciate classic motoring, call today!
