Classic Cars: Know Where to Look for Rust Before Buying

If you're thinking about buying a classic car, you should know where to look for rust and how extensive the repair might be.


Classic Car Overview

1940 Ford Deluxe Coupe - All Original Sheet Metal - Supercharged Ford 302 V8 - Custom Paint - Custom Interior - Award Winning and Magazine Featured - (Please note: If you happen to be viewing this vehicle on a website other than our Garage Kept Motors site, its possible that youve only seen some of our many photographs of this vehicle due to website limitations. To be sure you access all the more than 150 photographs, please go to our main website: GarageKeptMotors.) Were beginning to think that our client has found a pot of street rods at the end of the rainbow! One after another, as he brings us more of his amazing cars to represent, were equally impressed by each one. Each one has a great story, and learning the history is something that we love to do with each of his cars. In regard to this amazing Ford - whether you can afford to buy this car, or are just looking over the pictures, please also take the time to read about this car - its sure to impress you. As our client puts it, this car is a show stopper. Not a run of the mill, belly button checkbook car. With multiple awards and magazine features under his belt, and long term experience building hot rods, were sure he knows what hes talking about. This beautiful 40 Ford Deluxe Coupe was purchased by our client from a friend who had owned it since 1962. The car sat in pieces in a climate controlled garage after it was disassembled in 1968. When our client acquired it, he found that all the sheet metal - even the floors and fenders - were solid and are original to the car. As bodywork was done during the build of the car, no patch panels were needed! Just a quick walk around this Deluxe Coupe is all you need to do to see that this Fords paint, and panel fit and finish are show quality. All the brightwork has been re-chromed or polished, lights and lenses are in great condition, and most of the aforementioned parts are original to the car! The impressive color on the car is loosely based on a 1960s Cadillac hue - custom mixed with pearl and modern metallics added. The paint looks incredible in direct sunlight and under the lights in our showroom! Chrome wheels with spider caps wrapped in Diamondback Radial tires (Based on BFGoodrich tires) look awesome. Beneath the car is a new frame with brand new chassis parts bolted on. Aldan coilovers keep the ride and ride height just right, with rack and pinion steering, and Heidts front suspension components rounding out the (short explanation of) suspension specs. Handling and ride are surprisingly good for a vintage, custom car like this. Under the hood is a completely rebuilt Ford 302ci V8 with a TorqStorm Supercharger strapped on it. A blower specific Demon 650 carburetor is perched atop a vintage Cobra-style intake manifold, and to match the Cobra Valve covers, a one-off airbox was machined from billet aluminum. A custom fuel system is in place, a BeCool Radiator helps regulate engine temps, and a mild cam was chosen to compliment the supercharger. The 302 in this coupe makes a great sound, especially when the exhaust cutouts beneath the front fenders are opened! A rebuilt Ford AOD transmission with a shift kit handles gear selection, and a 9 Ford rear end helps get power to the pavement - just be sure to keep the shiny side of this beauty up. There is quite a bit more chrome inside the car than when it left the Ford plant 79 years ago, and it looks phenomenal! The entire dash assembly has been triple chrome plated, as well as the garnish moldings, shift assembly, and the steering column. Relaying engine speed and engine vitals are Classic Instruments gauges, and a shiny, black, restored 40 Ford steering wheel looks just right. White upholstery with gray piping and trim looks great with the gray wool carpeting. This interior is - dare we say it - glamorous. It has an overall high class feel with pleated door panels, simple stitching on the seating surfaces, and of cou
