Description:

This cool Vanilla 1940 Ford convertible coupe is a grown-up hot rod. No flames, no goofy body mods, no obnoxious exhaust, just a show-quality custom build that cost thousands more than the asking price and delivering a professional level of performance and appearance. This is an all-time favorite hot rod rendered in such a way to make it daily-driver friendly. Everybody loves the 1940 Ford, so much so that they''re still cranking out fiberglass replicas today. Fortunately, this one has a steel body, so it feels substantial, although it does use modern fiberglass rear fenders for an ultra-smooth and slightly wider look. The pointed hood and grille are icons in the hobby and despite the amazing build and flawless performance of this car, they decided to keep it low-key. The paint is called Cool Vanilla, and it''s a lovely off-white that accentuates the Ford''s generous curves without hiding anything. That''s good, because fit and finish are fantastic, with excellent gaps and a spectacular shine that will win trophies anywhere but Pebble Beach. They didn''t shave or chop anything, and the original trim was restored and reinstalled, so it looks like a 1940 Ford in every way. Stock bumpers, chevron-style taillights, and custom clear headlights all give this Ford a very high-quality look and feel. The stunning green leather interior is a work of art. Subtle and sophisticated, it was custom crafted for a larger guy, so just about anyone can get comfortable behind the wheel. The leather hides are almost completely unmarked, and the supportive seats make this car all-day comfortable. Sculpted door panels integrate an original-style door handle, chrome garnish moldings, and power window controls and there are matching dark green carpets on the floor. The beautiful and simple dashboard arrays Auto Meter gauges across the center with a custom-made strip of chrome running through them, giving it a very 1940s look. Secondary controls for the Vintage Air A/C, ignition, and headlights are just below, along with vents for the A/C system. A chrome tilt column and leather-wrapped steering wheel add a bit of glitter to match the window frames, and there''s a beautifully stitched custom green canvas convertible top that''s fully functional. In addition to the nicely finished trunk, there''s also a custom storage compartment behind the seats that gives the interior a very upscale look. It''s very, very impressive. Under all that chrome, there''s a 350 cubic inch Chevy V8, chosen specifically because of its low demands for the new owner. Plenty powerful, it''s a ZZ430 crate motor from GM Performance Parts, and moves the Ford with effortless ease. Just about everything you can see was polished or plated, and someone went to great lengths to hide all the wiring and plumbing. A serpentine belt drive system ensures reliability, and the smoothed firewall wraps around the engine to offer a very complete look. Backed by a TCI-built TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and a 9-inch Ford rear with 3.25 gears on a limited slip, it''s an effortless high-speed tourer that rides and handles like a modern car. The front suspension is tubular A-arms with coil-over shocks and rack-and-pinion steering, while the rear hangs on leaf springs, and there''s a disc brake at each corner. The frame is heavily reinforced while the custom stainless exhaust system tucks up under the running boards for excellent ground clearance. Staggered Torque Thrust wheels with spinners carry 195/75/14 front and 245/70/16 rear blackwall radials that really fill the fenders nicely. This isn''t your average hot rod, but if you''re an adult who is tired of the same-old, same-old at rod shows, this stunning Ford is the antidote. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom. For more information, please call (678) 279-1609 or toll free (877) 367-1835.
