1940 Ford 2 Sedan Deluxe Custom Street Rod
Up for sale is a beautiful 1940 Ford 2 door sedan Deluxe Custom Street Rod. This is a one owner vehicle that the owner started building in 1997 and finished in 2000. Vehicle build was a labor of love, not for profit, not to flip, but built exactly the way the owner wanted it- Drive anywhere in the US in comfort and dependability. It has since been driven over 70,000 miles across the United States and various up grades have been done along the way.
Owner is getting out of the hobby completely, so unfortunately vehicle is being listed locally and on ebay for sale. Listing for owner, I am not a dealer, just helping out a friend. Owner will be available to answer all questions and show the car by appointment.
