Vehicle Story

OVERVIEW

This restored 1940 Ford Deluxe Business Coupe, aka "Opera Coupe," is powered by a 221cid flathead V8 backed by a three-speed manual transmission. Features include new 16-inch wheels, new whitewall tires, folding rear jump seats, a clock, and an alternator conversion. Finished in plum purple over a beige tweed interior, this Ford comes from the selling dealer with additional parts, an owner’s manual, a 1940 Ford guidebook, and a clear title.

EXTERIOR – FEATURES

During the restoration, the exterior of this Business Coupe (model code 01A-67B) was refinished in plum purple. Features include chrome bumpers, Deluxe headlight rings and grille, a manual cowl vent, dual rearview mirrors, a roof-mounted antenna, and a chrome fuel cap.

EXTERIOR - WHEELS AND TIRES

A set of new body-color 16-inch steel wheels with chrome hubcaps and trim is wrapped in new Diamond Back Auburn whitewall bias-ply tires.

INTERIOR – FEATURES

The cabin is furnished with a beige tweed front bench seat and Business Coupe folding rear jump seats surrounded by tan tweed door panels and trim. Features include manual windows and steering and a steering column-mounted manual transmission shifter.

INTERIOR – GAUGES

A 100-mph speedometer and gauges for the fuel level, coolant temperature, oil pressure, and battery are located ahead of the driver. A clock is located in the glove box door. The odometer reads 22,193 miles, but the true mileage on this vehicle is unknown.

ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION

Power is provided by a 221cid flathead V8 and backed by a three-speed manual transmission. Engine bay features include Edelbrock finned aluminum heads, chrome acorn-style head bolts, a chrome remote oil filter housing, a six-volt alternator conversion, and a chrome air cleaner housing. The selling dealer states that the fluids were serviced in 2023. 

 

UNDERCARRIAGE

This Ford was factory-equipped with a solid front axle, a solid rear drive axle, and a closed driveline. Braking is provided by manual drums. A dual exhaust system exits at the rear. The selling dealer states that the front leaf springs have been refurbished and a leaf has been added to improve the ride quality and ride height.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS

The dealer will include a spare starter motor, a new crab-style distributor cap, an owner’s manual, and a 1940 Ford guidebook as part of the sale.
