1940 Ford Deluxe Convertible
Runs and drives excellent. Interior and top replaced a couple of years ago.
New tires added. Original driveline. 1940 Ford Model featured several major changes. 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. Sealed-beam headlights were one of the few major advances for 1940, while a hydraulic top was new on the convertible. The 1937-1940 generation of Fords is one of the most popular automobiles for hot rodding. Early stock car racing drivers also used Fords of this generation among other cars. This Ford also formed the basis for a style of dirt track racing car.
