Classic Car Overview
This is exactly what hot rod fun looks like. The 1940 Ford Deluxe Sedan Delivery gives you all the great lines of a classic pre-war design, but the deep paint, custom A/C interior, upgraded suspension, overdrive transmission, and strong V8 all tell you the only delivery this one will be making is a ton of envy. Today we all know the 40 Ford Deluxes were destine for hot rod duty. It has the chrome teardrop surrounds on the headlights, the long alligator hood, and the shapely front fenders to perfectly accept extra wide wheels. But thats just a good starting point; it takes a lot of planning and investment to get a car looking as spectacular as this one. It starts with making sure the nearly 80-year-old Henry Ford steel is looking its best. Then add in some well-incorporated upgrades like the steel running boards, beer delivery logos (this was built by a beer distributor,) and 15-inch wheels with Ford center caps. Of course, a big deal is getting the right paint. The dark metallic blue is a modern hue with a deep luster in the sunlight that gives it distinction on a show field. And since theres less than 800 miles on the build, this professional application can sure draw in a crowd. The paint offers the kind of shine doesnt need too much chrome accenting just the right factory pieces like the bumpers, pointed grille, and the really cool line that runs the full body length. Its a total package that makes a total stunner out of a rare canvas. Once you open the door, youll never believe this car is from 1940. The gray bucket seats are true modern pieces with nice bolstering for all-day comfort. It coordinates with the custom door panels and carpet piping for a great uniform look. In fact, this style is carried into the cargo area for a very thoughtful total build. Youll slip behind the original-style dual spoke steering wheel, which gives you a commanding view of the modern Dakota Digital gauge panel. And while they paid close attention to make the dash look as vintage as possible, youll love the very well-integrated addition of modern R134a air conditioning. The engine bay is just as tidy as the rest of the build. The etched polished valve covers, matching air topper, bright alternator, and much more add plenty of shine under the hood. More than just style, you have the substance of a 305 cubic-inch V8 upgrade. It has been enhanced with a Demon four-barrel carburetor, Weiand Street Warrior intake, and a sweet-sounding dual exhaust. Also, take some time to look at the undercarriage photos. Not only do they prove how fresh this build is, but also youll spot some terrific upgrades. You have a strong TCI chassis, upgraded TCI tubular A-arm independent front suspension, and a stout Currie 9-inch rear end. Add in rack & pinion power steering, front disc brakes, and a 200-4r four-speed automatic transmission w/highway-friendly overdrive, and soon you realize this is a great classic to enjoy near or far. Complete with build receipts and manuals for the modern upgrades, this is an all-around stellar build of a unique and rare Ford. But youre not the only one who wants this kind of distinction, so hurry up and call today!
