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 fastback lines and sleek profile is a cool design of that era. The tan paint fits this design quite nicely. It has a vintage vibe that can help make this a bit of a sleeper. In fact, there's a nice shine that makes this look more like a well-respected pre-war classic. It's well detailed with bright chrome bumpers, sweeping side trim, and those iconic teardrop headlight bezels. Much of the work was done a little more than 10 years ago, but the quality that endures today really lets you know the level of superior investment that went into this car. But you're not into this because you want a solid-looking classic. 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 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 289ci 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 headers feeding the dual exhaust w/Flowmaster mufflers. 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. It's good for all-around driving with a three-speed automatic transmission feeding the stout 9-inch rear end. And you have rack & pinion steering, a tubular A-arm front suspension, and front disc brakes.
Complete with build receipts and maintenance records, 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, so hurry up and call today!
