1940 Ford Deluxe Sedan
Ford Motor Company introduced its “Deluxe Ford Line” in 1938, as stylish upscale alternatives between base models (referred as Standards) and two luxury Lincoln production vehicles. By the following year, Ford production included and offered five particular car versions: Standard Fords, Deluxe Sedan Fords, Mercury, and its Lincoln and Lincoln-Zephyr models. Also during 1939 into 1940, in association with Murray Corporation of America for Ford, deluxe 4-door “woody” station wagon models appeared as well, exceeding more than 11,000 of those vehicles sold. By the end of 1940, Ford models imposingly accounted for nearly 70% of Ford’s 541,900 production numbers.
What enthusiastic modern buyers won’t often locate these days is a truly pristine Ford Deluxe 4-door Sedan of such updated, outstanding, impressively restored quality, with the all-important reliable drivability. The car doesn’t know “being broke-down at the side of a road.” Imagine enjoying your own exclusive ownership of such an exceptional, incomparable, and completely dependable custom version – indeed a rare pro-built example with room for the whole family or like-minded car buddies in comfort! After reviewing the Sedan photos closely, you’ll obviously understand exceptional/thorough quality.
Consider details: A modernized computer regulated operation. Complete frame dressed in light blue powder-coat. Heidts independent front-end assembly with disk brakes. After market cross member for over-kill extra under-carriage strength. Rear drive, 9” Ford with 355-gearing carried on precision leaf springs, stopped by drum brakes. AFCO aluminum radiator cooling. IDIDIT power steering column with monitoring cruise control. Tuned TPI fuel injection. Functional AC and Heat systems. For full dash operation information, custom fitted gauges keep drivers informed. All powered by a pro-built GM “heartbeat” 305 injected small block with less than 2,000-miles running road time since the rebuild! Exhaust flows through a stainless steel muffler system. Engine cools down by electric thermostat and a 3000cfm pusher fan at engine temperature and during AC operation. Serpentine belt system. GM Power runs through its rebuilt street-use 700R4 conversion auto-trans.
Internally: Custom sand-tan leather front seating, Glyde custom rear leather seating, and molded sand-tan headliner above. Like-Color matched carpet throughout, with power opening trunk, showing upholstery inclusive. Radio and CD player help you singing down the road – anywhere in reliability.
Exteriorly: All four doors operate electrical windows with perfectly fitted light-gray tinted glass, without wing windows (similar to 1939 Ford standard model). Electric windshield wipers. Perfectly balanced wire-wheels. New tires and body rubber all around. All newly refreshed chrome inside and out. Notice too classic “frenched” tail lights and license holder, also a cut-out rear bumper for unrestricted view.
The one-in-a-million Ford Deluxe Sedan is adorned in immaculately applied #317 BMW Orient Blue with conservatively emphasized/compliment traditional pin-stripping. During its lifetime, the car has run nearly 113,000-road-miles-total. But after its complete custom rebuild – only 2000-miles-old on the car to present date! The seller has “experienced plenty of grand memories.” Now it’s time to help build continued reminiscences with a proud new owner. Don’t pass on this jewel. On a scale one-to-seven, it’s indeed an impressive Ford 7!
