All early Ford V-8s are treasured by their owners and admired for their beauty. Some models, however, have engendered a wide and perennial following. The favorites among 1940s Fords are surely the 1940 coupes and convertibles. The 1940 Ford Coupe comes out of a very well respected Southern California collection, and was restored to a very high standard. It is built on a Fat Man chassis and is powered by a small block chevy V8. It features power disc brakes, power steering, ice-cold air conditioning, wool carpeting and more. Other special touches include conversion to 12-volt electrics, allowing the use of an electric radiator fan for reliable operation in all climates and the discreet installation of a modern stereo system under the dashboard.
