Description for Ford Business Coupe 1940

With GTO V8 power, a Corvette rear end, and full custom a/c interior, this 1940 Ford Business Coupe is an amazing slick custom classic that will captivate everyone with all its amazing details. Here's your favorite moonshiner. The extended trunks of these cars were a favorite of liquor-running outlaws. And in this case, the modern Black Cherry gives it a slick and dark presentation that's perfect for slipping through the midnight air. But more than just the cool... moonshiner legacy, you want this one because it was the last year for this generation of Ford coupes. By 1941, they would carry a softer design language with a more rounded front end and less pronounced fenders. So this one celebrates its iconic design with expertly deleted bumpers so you can get a terrific full view of the sharp protruding grille and beautiful rear fenders that extend the full design. The elimination of more bright work also gives this classic a modern flair. Shaved door handles, sport mirrors, integrated brake lights, and much more really make this one a standout. But a classic like this needs some bright work. It's now reserved to highlight some of the best features of old and new – like the classic teardrop headlight housings and modern Billet Specialties wheels. When you pop the remote door openers, the interior instantly shows you plenty of reminders that this custom build has comfort and quality in mind. It starts with the tan leather seating that has an armrest and individual bolstering for long-haul comfort. The headliner, carpeting, trunk, and custom door panels match this and look exceptionally fresh. The dash is equal parts comfort and performance as the wood-style inlay contains the air conditioning controls, AM/FM/CD stereo, power window controls, and a full set of classic-style VDO gauges. The shine from the banjo-style steering wheel and Lokar shifter are equal parts performance and flair. When you look under the hood, you're once again reminded of how thorough this custom build is. After all, they took the time to paint the valve covers, intake, and block the same black cherry to match the exterior. More than just stylish, you're looking at a 389 cubic-inch V8. So while most of the custom 1940 Fords retain blue oval power or get a Chevy upgrade, this one has Pontiac GTO-style muscle. Not just extra distinction, this was a powerful displacement that's upgraded further by a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and a rumbling dual exhaust. To go with this extra power is a serious upgrade in handling. That's thanks to a Mustang II-style independent front suspension with tubular A-arms and adjustable coilovers. In the rear you've been upgraded to a Corvette-style independent setup. Plus, you can take advantage of this superior suspension with four-wheel disc brakes and grippy Nexen performance tires. Being a performance build, you'll easily cruise the streets with power steering and a TH400 three-speed automatic transmission. Plus, the aluminum radiator with electric fan means this one stays cool no matter if you're performance driving or just idling in traffic with the A/C pumping. This has the distinction, stance, features, and power you want. So you know a total package like this '40 Ford won't be available for long. Don't miss out, call today!
