This is one of the most highly sought after Fords of all time! As the United States began to ease out of the Great Depression, Ford returned to profitability in 1934 with its Model 40, which replaced the Model 18. This beautiful example is a 1934 Model 40 Deluxe Roadster, complete with rumble seat and its in our showroom at MotoeXotica Classic Cars. This unit is one of 6,180 Deluxe Roadsters made in 1934. It has been in the arid state of Arizona for numerous years in a private collection and is being sold on a actual mileage Arizona title!
The Dearborn Blue paint and trim, including the new tan folding top, are in very good order. This example has fog lights, cowl lights, dual horns and not one but three spare wheels and tires two side-mounted on the fenders and the third behind the rumble seat complete with suicide doors.
The cars bodywork is straight and solid, the engine bay is very tidy and the Ultima 6V battery appears to be in great condition but the original flying greyhound hood ornament has a broken leg. The cars chrome bumpers are in brilliant order.
This Deuce Roadster rolls on Firestone Deluxe Champion Gum-Dipped wide whitewall tires, size 5.25-5.50-17 at all four corners. Each tire is wrapped around factory, cream-colored wire wheels. The wheels and tires are all in good, original order.
Under the veed hood is Fords 221 CID Flathead V-8 engine with a Stromberg carburetor. Backing it is a three-speed sliding gear transmission and 4.11:1 gearing.
Inside, the cars upholstered bench seat is in excellent order, as is the rumble seat while the carpet is in very good shape. The three-spoke steering wheel looks good, the blue metal instrument panel is in very good order but the turn signals are inoperable, while the inner door panels are in nearly flawless condition. It comes with a factory optional radio (inoperable) and even the rear view mirror has a wind up clock.
The 1934 Ford (the Model 40B) was not as substantial a model year change as the previous two years had been. Noticeable changes included a flatter grille with a wider surround and fewer bars, straight hood louvers, two handles on each side of the hood, smaller head lights and cowl lamps, and a reworked logo. The bare metal dash insert was replaced by painted steel.
V8 output was again increased, this time to 85 horsepower and the four-cylinder Model B engine was in its last year, as was the Victoria body style; nevertheless, there were 14 body options, the Tudor being top-seller. The standard three window coupe was deleted.
Deluxes had pinstriping, again twin (chromed) horns, cowl lights and twin taillights. Inside, they got more elaborate wood graining.
As Ford moved past its Model A era, the succeeding models are every bit as beautiful and have more powerful engines with twice as many cylinders. If youre a classic Ford collector, someone who appreciates pre-World War II automobiles or who would enjoy something different in their collection, you owe it to yourself to stop at MotoeXotica Classic Cars and review this Model 40 Roadster.
This car is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows 17,532 miles. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, actual mileage Arizona title but we have no documentation to back up the mileage however. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
