THE 1940 FORD

The 1940 Ford's appeal was its design, now fully modern and handsomely streamlined with pontoon fenders, prow hood, inset headlights and a subtle grille that integrated with the front fender catwalks for broader appearance and more cooling area. The greenhouse's raked vee windshield, body colored frame and a sleek body beltline bright molding helped integrate the design and made the convertible coupe, particularly, one of the most attractive, simple and refined designs of the era.

The combination of design and performance gave the '40 Ford a particular presence, an attitude and style which set it apart from its contemporaries.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Prior to arriving into the hands of the current owner roughly 25 years ago, this Ford Convertible was the subject of a comprehensive restoration. Since then, the car has been cared for dutifully, and as one can see in the photos, appears in wonderful condition. Both the interior and exterior are free from any major wear, and the work completed decades ago has held up with little fatigue. Largely kept original and unmodified, an exception to this standard was the installation of an electric fuel pump- a necessary addition given the car's high altitude home in Colorado.

Used sparingly and always garaged kept, this Ford was the recipient of a best of class award at a 1987 meet in Hershey, PA. the owner reports that all four wheels were shod in fresh tires and surround recently re-done brakes. Flathead Fords make for wonderful classic cars due to their simplicity and ease of maintenance. This stylish convertible is sure to bring its new owner plenty of miles of happy motoring.
