Vehicle Story

This 1940 Ford Deluxe sedan was purchased by the seller from a previous owner who reportedly kept it for 20 years, and benefits from a respray, refinished brightwork, a reupholstered interior, and replaced tires. Power comes from an 85-horsepower 239ci flathead V8 backed by a 3-speed manual and the sale includes the original grille. This 1940 Ford Deluxe sedan is offered by the selling dealer.

Ford’s Deluxe lineup launched in 1938 as a middle-tier offering between the less-expensive Standard models and the upmarket Lincoln marque. This example is a four-door sedan with rear-hinged rear doors, a split rear window, and a two-piece windshield. An olive green respray is reported to be in excellent overall condition per the seller and is accented by brightwork in the form of a replacement grille, chromed front and rear bumpers with guards, window surrounds, and side moldings. The seller states that there is an area of surface rust present on the metal plate beneath the grille. A grille reported to be original to the car is included with the sale.

Body-colored 15” steel wheels with polished hubcaps are wrapped in wide-whitewall tires.

Interior appointments include reupholstered two-tone brown cloth and tan vinyl front and rear bench seating with matching lap belts, door panels, and dark brown carpeting. The dash is finished in two-tone high gloss brown and ivory, and features a driver's side ashtray and a passenger-facing analog clock. The trunk is home to a spare tire and associated jack equipment.

Instrumentation is housed within a bezel finished in ivory forward of the driver and includes a 100-mph speedometer along with accompanying gauges for fuel level, coolant temperature, oil pressure, and voltage. The five-digit mechanical odometer reads just over 92k miles.

The 239ci flathead V8 had an output of 85 horsepower at 3,800 rpm and 157 pound-feet of torque at 2,200 when new and is backed by a column-shifted 3-speed manual.

Photos showing the underside are available in the carousel.

The sale includes a grille that is reported to be original to the car.
