With an upgraded A/C interior, upgraded suspension, upgraded V8 power, and a vibrant color combo, this 1940 Ford Deluxe Convertible Coupe makes quite an impact wherever it goes.
The red paint is what's going to first catch your eye. This was a quality application, and so it retains a great gloss and depth that really radiates in the sun light (exactly what you want on a sunshine-friendly convertible.) They even deleted some trim like the badging and door handles to make the body look extra-sleek. As you get closer, you see more details, like the full-length pinstriping and flame step plates on the running boards. While the first impression is quite custom, it still has all your favorite classic brightwork pieces that make a '40 Ford so distinct, like the sharply-pointed tall grille, chevron taillights, and the teardrop headlight bezels. Plus, there's added polish that also hints at this car's performance, like the bright dual exhaust tips and the modern 16-inch Budnik alloys.
Beneath the black folding roof is a custom gray interior. This was built with comfort in mind, so not only do you have a nice tweed cloth (great for open-top sunny days,) but also its exceptionally plush. There are even fold-down front armrests for individual space. This is a detail-oriented package for both comfort and style. You see that best on the dash where the light gray has some subtle dark gray pinstriping, and the classic knob-style radio is really a modern retro unit with a digital tuner, cassette, and CD changer connection. Plus, it's great to have cold-blowing air conditioning to make this a car you'll love in the summer, and the controls are nicely hidden away in the glovebox. There are more great modern features, like cruise control and provisions for power windows. The Budnik sports steering wheel has a classic style and the gray grip coordinates with the rest of the interior. It's mounted on a tilt column so that you can get a clear view to the full VDO gauge package.
Grab your sunglasses before opening the hood. The Chevy 350 V8 has been given plenty of shine with the air topper, compressor, alternator, pulleys, aluminum radiator, and plenty of other components given a polish. And don't you love how those bright valve covers have the Ford V8 logo? Beyond the flash, you'll find the substance of a performance-built motor. It has been enhanced with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, Mallory ignition & distributor, and shorty headers. Plus, this V8 has an upgraded cam that gives this one power, as well as a terrific performance tune from the Flowmaster dual exhaust. And make sure you follow those exhaust pipes in the undercarriage photos. There you'll see a clean presentation that also highlights the upgraded frame and upgraded front suspension. And with a smooth-shifting three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes, this one is ready to be your favorite cruiser.
This is a thoughtful build that was made to be impressive, fun, and comfy all at once. That's what a lot of us want in a driver's classic, so don't miss this Forty Ford. Call now!
