1940 Ford Standard Coupe
A high flat-topped hood dominated the front look of the 1940 model, as the grille spread out to reach the fenders to differentiate the Deluxe line and the headlights were pushed wider still. The standard Ford inherited the grille of the 1939 model with blackout on each side of a heavy chrome center; heavier headlight surrounds serve as another major differentiator from the 1939. 1940 was the last year of the 1937 design and its smaller V8 engine, with a straight six engine to be reintroduced the following year. Sealed-beam headlights were one of the few major advances for 1940, while a hydraulic top was new on the convertible.
For consignment, a "worked" 1940 Ford Standard Coupe. By "worked" I mean a later model engine with more power, gobs of interior upgrades, updated brakes, and snappy white paint job with some raspberry flames. The exterior retains its original lines along with plenty of chrome trimmings. An iconic design cherished by street rodders everywhere.
ExteriorBathed in beautiful white with raspberry flames licking back from the very front, this steel slab sided Ford Standard Coupe has most of its original trimmings and is looking just fab, a homologation of new and old. With only minor flaws in the paint and an overall good fit and finish this coupe sports a carryover grille with chrome bezel headlights flanking on either side and an incorporated V8 insignia above. Rounded lines with bulbous fenders with a decently sized running board connect the front fenders to the rears. A straight hinged on the back hood with curved edges, a rounded trunk, a central passenger compartment which utilizes almost square doors, a mid body trim spear and flared rockers at the bottom complete the package. On all 4 corners are 15" American Racing Torque Thrust wheels with staggered size black wall rubber all the way around.
InteriorThe original Art Deco inspired dash has been upgraded for the driver with an engine turned panel that holds the speedometer as well as other gauges and an AM/FM/Cassette player neatly installed into the dash top. The original knobs and pulls have been replaced and a Vintage Air controller hangs under the dash, (the A/C is not hooked up but is included with purchase). A newer chromed tilt steering column has a tachometer attached to keep an eye on engine revs. Door panels sport a snazzy gray vinyl covering with a sewn in V pattern of stitching along with a white separation panel above more vertically stitched gray vinyl and gray carpet to finish out the bottom. Newer model vinyl covered bucket seats provide relief for your posterior with both seats being power controlled. All business for the back as there is no rear seat, just gray carpeting which continues down to cover the floors. A B&M star shifter grows from the carpet and a tight gray headliner hangs above.
DrivetrainLifting the hinged hood, we see an updated engine bay which houses a Ford 351ci V8 Windsor engine topped with a Holley Avenger 670cfm 4bbl carburetor which sits proudly atop of an aluminum intake manifold. On the back, keeping this Ford all Ford, is a C4 3-speed automatic transmission. A Ford 9" rear axle with 3.55 gears and a TracLoc rounds out the drivetrain and puts the power to the ground.
UndercarriageSome slight surface rust is seen throughout, but mostly just straight black steel for the frame and body hangers. The suspension and drivetrain look just fine with the suspension being a Heidts Mustang II front end style with tubular arms and disc brakes on the front and leaf springs and drum brakes bringing up the rear. Headers feed spent fossils to the rear of the car via snaking pipes and Cherrybomb style mufflers.
DrivabilityShe fired right up and handled the test track with ease. The newer drivetrain, modern suspension, and upgraded braking make for a great cruiser and bruiser. Steering was smooth, braking was adequate, and the experience left me with a smile on my face. We again note that the A/C is not on the car but is included with the purchase.
While keeping most of its original charm, we see a well presenting car with much of its original exterior styling retained. A newer more stout drivetrain which is kept within the Ford family and a snazzy interior with upgrades and conveniences make this rod eye candy that will put you at the top of the show.
