With its upgraded V8 power and the control of a five-speed, this 1940 Ford Coupe earns its sporty style. And the upgraded suspension, comfy leather seats, an A/C interior, and plenty of other thoughtful details mean this stylish custom street machine also has an everyday easy kind of appeal.
This coupe has good body lines, clear glass, and pliable weather stripping which makes for a solid classic. But that's not what caught your eyes first. The blue paint gives this coupe a bright presence to be a standout in any crowd. It's a string and glossy application that's so attractive that we like how it even consumes traditionally chromed pieces like the grille and bumpers. This also means the remaining brightwork prices have added distinction as there's now more attention drawn to the teardrop headlights and Weld-style racing wheels with a meatier rear set. And speaking of the rear wheels, the steel body is upgraded with fiberglass fenders so that the modern/larger wheels and tires can nicely tuck into the classic design. There are more of the right custom details, including the turn signals within the headlight housing and a frenched license plate. It all makes for a distinct and thoughtful style.
The moment you open the door, you can see that the old 1930s-style interior has been replaced with a full custom and comfy setup. That means two late-model leather bucket seats upfront with proper headrests for all-day comfort. Yours even power adjusts to the ideal driver's position. The rear vinyl sets even have good contouring for added coziness. There are nice extras for a comfortable cruiser you don't see on too many street machines, like heated seats, power windows, and cold-blowing air conditioning. Plus, the upgraded sports steering wheel, tilt steering column, billet pedals, and clear instrument Stewart Warner gauge package. And the tach goes particularly well with the Hurst shifter.
The clean and smooth inner walls of the engine bay contain plenty of V8 power. This is a 400 cubic-inch small block. It has some nice flair with the added polish from the valve covers, alternator, and air grabber. But what you'll love best is that this V8 is built with the right performance pieces, like FloTek aluminum heads, a Pro Form four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock aluminum intake, a Mallory ignition system, and headers feeding the dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. You take proper control over this enhanced power package with the T5 five-speed manual transmission. It's the kind of coupe that you're going to want to drive and so they also upgraded this with a Mustang II-style front end, power steering, front discs, and a rear sway bar.
Great looks, great power, great features, and a unique personality - this is the coupe for those who enjoy driving their classics and standing out while doing it. Call today!!!
