The 1940 Ford 2-door sedan scene is a little different than many of the others out there. While some car lovers strive to have a cool hot rod exterior, and others provide a comfortable interior, customs like this are about providing both...and this one represents it perfectly with it's slick exterior, A/C interior, and small block V8 feeding an overdrive transmission.
The Tudor fastback body is sleek and ideally lends itself to a lowered and raked stance, without losing any of its backseat practicality. You're looking at Henry Ford era steel that has been painstakingly worked, and even given fiberglass rear fenders for extra flair. Then it was sprayed with a great modern clearcoat with a two-tone so that the curvaceous presentation has an awesome gloss in the sunlight. The total package tells you there was serious investment in time and money. The re-chromed bumpers, grille, and trim have the kind of shine that shows there's been some real care. Plus, there's plenty of great timeless hot rod touches from the blue dot headlights, to the spinner caps on the 15-inch wheels.
This is a very thoughtful custom-built interior, and that's evident from the moment you step inside. The seats have a kind of plushness you'd expect from fine home furniture, and the gray cloth with green piping seen on the door panels is a great coordinating package with the exterior two-tone. You grab the Lokar shifter with your right hand, and the left one will love the Lecarra steering wheel. Beyond that is a full classic-style VDO gauge package. As you keep gazing across the dash, you'll see more upgrades like the AM/FM/cassette stereo, and cold air conditioning running modern R134a.
Since the rest of the car is built to show off, you'll be happy to see the engine bay is, too. The valve covers, air grabber, and brackets all have a nice matching etched design and a quality shine. Beyond flash, there's the substance of a Chevy 350 cubic-inch small block that has been upgraded with pieces like a Edelbrock 600 CFM four-barrel carburetor and shorty headers feeding the rumbling dual exhaust. But this custom build also has a practical side, too. Features like the upgraded independent front suspension, front disc brakes, power steering, and four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive make this classic a comfortable highway cruiser. And even if you're stuck in traffic, the aluminum radiator w/electric fan means this car can stay cool while you've got the A/C blowing.
A custom appearance wrapped around everyday appeal – that's why you want this '40 Ford. But you're not the only one who appreciates a total package, so hurry up and call today!
