1940 Ford Deluxe Convertible
The seller purchased this incredible rust free, 80 year old car from the daughter of the original owner. It had been garaged it's entire life but was in need of a complete restoration. This is as authentic a 1940 Ford Deluxe Convertible as you will find, right down to the Dill-Cleveland valve caps. The car was given to her father as a High School graduation present in 1940. The current clear California title shows the car was built in 1939
The seller had this car stripped to bare metal after removing all of the chrome (which was replated). It was repainted in its original Monaida Maroon including the dashboard. The tan leather interior is original to the car. The flathead V8 engine, 3 on the tree, was upgraded at some point from 85hp to the more desireable 100 hp motor. The engine is equipped with a (backup) electric fuel pump. The power convertible top was 3rd from the last ever delivered by the recently defunct LaBarron/Bonnie company. Comes with a new convertible boot as well.
Other accessories included with this sale are a factory radio (works) a rebuilt clock, front and rear bumper guards, chrome trim rings, a locking gas cap and the original dual Smitty exhaust. To discourage its use in the winter months, the high school grads new car did not have a heater. The seller has a completely restored heater (not installed) which will be included with the right offer. The white wall tires are 6-ply 6:50/16 premium Lester's including the full size spare with tire lock. Also in the trunk is a one piece tire jack as well as the original tool kit.
For safety reasons, a right side view mirror, seat belts and turn signals have been added by the present owner. The lucky buyer of this car will also receive an original 1940 owners manual and a custom California Car Cover.
