Classic details, hot rod flair, a comfy A/C interior, and a hardy V8 under the hood - this 1940 Ford Deluxe streetrod is that kind of great all-around custom build that reminds you that the best cars were made to be driven.
There's a lot to love in this two-door sedan. The '40 Ford's roundback style gave it fastback lines and a sleek profile that's one of the best of its era. The tan paint fits this design quite nicely. It has a vintage vibe that can help make this a bit of a sleeper, and the red pinstripe stands out nicely against it. This is well detailed with bright chrome bumpers, sweeping side trim, rubber running boards, newer headlights, and those iconic teardrop headlight bezels. But you're not only into this one because you want a solid-looking classic. It has the right amount of custom style. You especially see it on the split bumpers that give you a clear view of the iconic grille. Plus, the Weld Racing wheels, forward-leaning stance, and big exhaust tips signal that there's much more going on here.
The interior is practical, comfortable, and unmistakably custom. The well-bolstered bucket seats are borrowed from a later model car. They are covered with cream leather and power adjust to your ideal comfort position. The matching rear seats are also exceptionally comfortable and have the kind of legroom that makes this great for bringing along family and friends. Tweed door panels, dash, and headliner are done in maroon for a tasteful two-tone. You may have noticed the tank in the trunk. This car was set up for nitrous, but this rebuilt motor was never hooked up to the bottle. You get some great conveniences like the cold blowing air conditioning and an AM/FM/CD stereo. Plus, a tall shifter, tilt steering column, and a full VDO gauge package make this a particularly nice driver's environment.
The engine bay shows off a cool-looking 289 cubic-inch powerhouse. After all, it's great to have a classic Ford upgraded while still using blue oval power. And this even has a long Cobra air grabber and matching valve covers. This small block was built in 2011 with receipts for about $6,000. It now has added power with a mild cam, Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock midrise intake, and a new set of headers feeding the dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. We also have a receipt from the last year showing a nice investment in fundamentals like the header gaskets, thermostat, spark plugs, and a timing adjustment. It makes for a good all-around driver, especially with features like a three-speed automatic transmission, rack & pinion power steering, a tubular A-arm front suspension, and front disc brakes.
This is a street machine wrapped around the right features for everyday appeal. But you're not the only one who appreciates a total package classic, so hurry up and call today!
