1940 Ford Deluxe Convertible Additional Info:

With an upgraded A/C interior, upgraded suspension, upgraded V8 power, and a terrific color combo, this 1940 Ford Deluxe convertible makes quite an impact wherever it goes.
As you look over every inch, you're going to discover just how much of a top-quality build this is. It's the kind of vehicle where all the hard work has already been done correctly. The cream color has deep shine and a great tone to appear almost porcelain-like, and at the same time, it complements all the brightwork trim better than white could. The combination of the two is best seen in the profile. The straightness of the all steel body is seen in the gloss of the paint, and the full-length trim appears like an unbroken line. So this entire convertible is like a symphony individual elements are at their best, and the result is a masterpiece. That last part might read like overindulgence, but it's true. After all, when was the last time you saw a build that used genuine iconic Halibrand wheels... and even the knock-off hubs have a color-matched center.
Beneath the black electric folding roof is a terrific black interior. At first, this might seem like a well-preserved period-correct execution, but the longer you look at it, the more impressive it gets. The supple black leather is trimmed with a textured insert and exterior-matching cream piping. And this is carried onto the door panels for a full uniform presentation. The dual-spoke steering wheel looks authentic, except it feels like it's brand new. And while the gauges look original, you might remember that these Fords never need a 140 mph speedometer and never had a tachometer. They even hid the modern AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth as well as the R134a air conditioning system. That makes for a very comfortable custom convertible that never betrays its vintage atmosphere.
Grab your sunglasses before opening the hood. The Chevy 350 V8 has been given plenty of shine with the air topper, valve covers, intake, compressor, alternator, brackets pulleys, and plenty of other components given a mirror-like polish. And with the wires hidden and the smooth firewall, we bet you'll win awards just for the engine bay. Beyond the flash, you'll find the substance of a ZZ3 performance crate motor that has been further enhanced with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and ceramic-coated headers. This well-built V8 makes a nice rumble out of the dual exhaust. Plus, as you look through the undercarriage photos, you'll be happy to see upgrades like performance-spec Heidts independent front suspension with tubular A-arms and QA1 adjustable coilovers. Plus, there's power steering, front disc brakes, and stabilizer bars front & rear. Add in the TH350 three-speed automatic transmission with strong Currie 9-inch rear and versatile 3.53 gears, and you soon realize this award-worthy build is also a great anytime/anywhere cruiser.
Complete with build receipts, this is the kind of full custom build that takes a while to enjoy all the details. So if you like everyone spending real time admiring your car, don't miss this custom Ford droptop. Call today!!!
