Here is a beautifully restored 1940 Ford Deluxe Convertible that has a smooth running and driving Ford flathead V8. The 40 Ford Deluxe was designed by Eugene Gregorie and Mr. Gregories design is surely iconic. Serving as a bridge between Fords Standard base model and its top of the line Lincolns, the Deluxe featured elevated trim which gave it a more elevated look and feel. The conservative Art Deco influenced design on the Deluxe was more streamlined than previous year Fords and the unique grille design made it one of the most beautiful American cars of all time. This particular Ford was owned by the same owner from 76 through 2019 and the ground up restoration was completed under his ownership. Based on the overall quality and condition of this Deluxe Convertible, it is clear that he meticulously cared for this car. Under the hood on this classic Ford is Fords famous 24-stud 221 Cubic Inch Flathead V8 engine, otherwise known as the Ford Flatty, that along with the Single 2 Barrel Downdraft Carburetor under an oil bath air cleaner pushed out a whopping 85 horsepower in its day. The Flatty is mated up to a 3 Speed Manual Transmission that features a column mounted shifter, marking the first time in Fords history that Fords had a 3 on the tree shifter as opposed to the floor mounted shifters in previous year models. The chrome and brightwork on this 40 Deluxe is stellar. The front bumper features bumper guards and optional Amber fog lamps. The Mandarin Maroon exterior paint is in excellent shape and was repainted during the fantastic restoration undertaken by the cars previous long-term owner. This 40 Ford sits on 4 bias ply wide whitewall tires with full wheel covers, and with the rear wheels sitting behind matching fender skirts. The beige power convertible top with glass rear window goes up and down with ease and, when down, rests under a beautiful matching boot. The interior on this 1940 Deluxe Convertible is stellar. The Bench Seats were reupholstered in a beautiful Beige leather giving the car a fantastic period-correct look. The steering wheel, door panels, and dash all look superb and are in a stock configuration. The instrument cluster appears to be stock as well and is equipped with an 100 MPH speedometer, oil pressure gauge, fuel gauge, temperature gauge, and battery level gauge.
