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

Good looking example of a real 1940 Ford Deluxe convertible. Solid car from down south. EXTERIOR: Clean steel body. It is an older paint job and there are no problem areas showing- no bubbles or damage. The paint shows very well, smooth and glossy. Up close you may find flaws. Extra features include grill gaurd, wing tips on the bumpers, locking gas cap, dual mirrors and dual spot lights. The wheels have Deluxe trim and Firestone white walls. The black cloth convertible top is excellent. It has maroon piping. INTERIOR: Inside is very well preserved, I actually think the genuine leather upholstery is original. The door panels look like theyve been replaced. The dash area is nice. The temperature, oil pressure and fuel gauges work. Speedo works. It has the correct rubber mats in front with carpet in the back. ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The flathead V-8, 221 ci, 85 hp motor is believed to be rebuilt. It runs smooth, the paint looks fresh, bolts are clean. The entire compartment looks very nice. Fuel pump is new. Upgraded to a 12 volt electrical system with a battery disconnect. The generator is upgraded with alternator internals. The dual note trumpet horns work. The firewall and under the hood are painted nicely. The wiring looks real good. It has an electric fan in front to help keep it cool. TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It has an original Ford script mat. The side panels are in tact. It has a white wall and painted rim with deluxe trim for a spare. Under the trunk lid is painted. The weather strip was replaced. UNDERSIDE: Overall the underside of this car is very clean. All the metal has a smooth, satin black finish. The components look clean, bottom of the motor is clean and painted dark green. Starter looks fresh. It has a 3-speed manual trans and the banjo style rear end. New dual exhaust with glasspack style mufflers. Fuel tank was replaced. The 40 Ford is one of those milestone cars. It was and is a very popular car for hot rudders and purists. This is a good ole original example! I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the cars condition in detail. Dont be intimidated, contact sales now for a no pressure, no hassle experience! 815 385 3644 9-5 central Sales@volocars.com Answered ASAP Grille guard Bumper wing tips Dual mirrors Dual spotlights Deluxe wheel trim White walls Leather upholstery Locking gas cap Dual exhaust
