Description for Ford Deluxe Convertible 1940

The 1940 Ford is an icon, nd if you're going to own one, he convertible coupe is the very top of the food chain in terms of desirability. Very usable with spirited V8 power, his pretty blue ragtop has an appealing period look with a few modern updates to make it a fantastic cruiser that's also surprisingly affordable for a genuine 1940 Ford convertible.The medium blue paint on this Ford gives it a sunny disposition, nd while the work was done some years ago, he car still has that head-turning look we all love. This is a Deluxe model, hich uses a bit more chrome and the 1940 Ford nose that's become one of the most famous of all time. The paint isn't show-quality anymore, ut 20 years ago when it was completed it must have been absolutely stunning. During the intervening years, t's been well maintained but never traveled on a trailer, o it has a few signs of use, ll of which are so minor that they're tough to spot without a close inspection. Doors fit well and the pointed hood, hich can be a challenge to install properly on these cars, ecures easily and follows the fender line properly. You'll also note that the 1940 Fords still had full-sized running boards, hich add a classic touch. Chrome and stainless brightwork remains in great shape and this car carries lots of accessories, ncluding a grille guard, umper ends, og lamps, nd spotlights on the windshield posts. Pretty flashy!The brown interior is pretty close to what you would have received in your new 1940 Ford, ith spacious bench seats fore and aft and door panels trimmed to match. In Ford's usual style, he front seat gets rubber floor mats for durability while the back seat gets carpets, resumably because those riding in back would appreciate the luxury. The skinny steering wheel is in good condition and while the gold trim isn't totally factory, t's a nice complement to the two-tone dashboard. The factory gauges are neatly arrayed in a polished panel, lthough they're no longer functional due to the 12-volt conversion. The center stack that originally housed the AM radio and speaker, hich have both given way to an AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit up high, nd the wipers are now electrically operated, oth features made possible by that 12-volt upgrade. The tan canvas top is in excellent condition and the trunk is big enough for a week's worth of luggage for the whole family.That's a familiar 239 cubic inch flathead V8 under the hood, nd in 1940 it was making an over-achieving 85 horsepower. It's nicely detailed with reproduction hoses, live green engine enamel, nd shiny acorn nuts on the heads, nd runs as smoothly as a flathead should thanks to a rebuild about 2000 miles ago. The modern alternator gives away the electrical upgrades, ut the rest is pretty stock, rom the oil bath air cleaner and 2-barrel carburetor to the twin water pumps at the front of the engine. The ignition system is a Mallory system just for flatheads and vintage headers feed a purring dual exhaust system that give the flathead just the right tone. The brake system was fully rebuilt with new lines, aster cylinder, nd wheel cylinders and wide whitewall radials have been installed on the original wheels to give it better handling without ruining the vintage look.If you've dreamed of owning a 1940 Ford convertible, his is one of the more affordable ones on the market today, nd it's got smart upgrades that make it a pleasure to drive.
