1940 Ford Convertible - Details

One of the most popular pre-war Fords, this 1940 Super Deluxe Ford Convertible was originally from Massachusetts, and was found in a barn in nearby Sharpsville, PA in 2012.

This car has an 85 HP Flathead V-8 engine and at the time (other than a few Cadillacs, LaSalles and Lincolns that had huge dis-placement engines), this was one of the fastest production cars. Even against such cars, the pre-war Fords were always first off the line, with lots of low-end torque. Extra cost options are a Columbia 2-speed Rear Axle for highway driving and Dual Exhausts (there is no finer sound than a properly tuned Ford flathead engine). Car starts right up and runs great.

In 2013 we did a complete restoration of this Ford. Car had no rust, but we still took it down to bare metal, followed by a new base/clear-coat paint job, using our HVLP-90 Turbine System. A new convertible top and new interior door panels were installed, along with lots of detailing work done in our shop at Tip. Some new chrome was installed, along with new glass and floor mats.
