It's not often at all that you encounter a classic like this one. It combines what is believed to be just 28,421 original miles journeyed with a great looking exterior that's been kept in its original color scheme, and is in great operating condition to boot. This 1940 Ford Deluxe Coupe has such a powerful nostalgic effect that with a simple glance you're likely to find yourself transported back in time to an era when Sinatra was first wowing audiences with his vocal magic out in front of the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, and the tune "Tuxedo Junction" was permeating the airwaves.
Even decades back, Ford understood how big a part color played in a car's visual impact, and the original two-tone scheme on this Coupe, combining Sahara Sand over most of the body that's contrasted with Mandarin Maroon below, is clear evidence of that wisdom. A great deal of exacting care, as well as some good luck to protect it from collision and any permanent ravages of the elements, have resulted in its great condition, a state that made this classic a very worthy competitor on the local car show circuit. That ornate front grille separating this Deluxe model from its more commonly equipped stablemates sits level and unblemished, all of its exterior emblems are intact and well-positioned, and its extensive chrome trim is in unusually good condition, as well. With its wide set headlights surrounded by teardrop shaped casings and a high profile, prominent flat hood, and flowing fenders, it's a great example of how successful Ford was at creating an outstanding example of American luxury.
You're sure to nod in admiration as you open the driver side door and climb inside. This is an impressively restored interior, and you'll find a very clean and well-padded cloth bench seat underneath you that's also been refurbished to original specifications. The attention to detail inside is obvious - the original instrument cluster in front of the stock steering wheel carries easily readable gauges, and even the knobs on the interior handles match the shade of beige featured on the dash area, which is also contrasted by the same shade of maroon as that of the exterior across the top. On the passenger side, you'll notice still another outstanding aesthetic feature in a car that's chock full of them - the art deco clock residing on the glove box door. This Ford's ample proportions and two-seat configuration make for a substantial amount of room in the trunk area in back, and that space is further maximized by the clever positioning of the full-size white-walled spare moored almost vertically toward the front.
Not surprisingly, considering what you've encountered so far, a factory correct powerplant, in the form of a 221-cubic inch flathead V8, resides in the clean, tapered engine bay. It's carrying a single barrel carb on top - the standard in its day - and is running strong, mated with a 3-speed manual transmission that shifts with impressive precision. While the urge to display this classic is undeniably strong, its drivetrain is very much up to the task of real world motoring, and its drum brakes are capable of bringing this substantially sized Coupe to a stop quicker than you might expect. This unusually well-restored vintage Ford sits on a set of 15" era-correct stock Ford rims, outfitted with bias ply tires.
Having benefited from a very sheltered existence and a lot of exacting care to bring it to its current impressive condition, this 1940 Ford Deluxe Coupe represents an opportunity you'll seldom find. Call today!
