This 1940 Ford Coupe Convertible Rumble Seat really brings together everything you love. It's an iconic Ford style with plenty of hot rod flair. There's nice V8 power, an upgraded suspension, and while the leather interior is supple, the seat most people will be talking about is the iconic rumble seat.
The elegantly rounded fenders and sharply-pointed front end of the '40 Ford make this design a true pre-war icon. Bright bumpers, two-piece wheel covers, a chrome grille, and teardrop .....
headlight bezels deliver the right classic brightwork. Because you're looking at a quality Wescott fiberglass body, it really has a well-fitting appearance. And the body panels are quite important, because this was built to be a bit sleeker. Expertly deleted trim, including the door handles, give this car the kind of clean look that make people take notice. The matte black paint was applied with an even hand, and so it gives a nice soft glow to the satin finish. On top of that is a full custom pinstripe package completed only a few years ago. It's done in a two-tone red and white, which coordinates nicely with the whitewall tires and the whole interior.
The black convertible top looks good against the black body, but when you take it down, the red and white interior really give off vibrant look. And the pattern on the leather seat and side panels has a hint of that cool tuck and roll style. The classic-style Ford steering wheel is mounted on a tilt column, and it gives you a good view of the full Dolphin gauge package. There are nice upgrades like power windows, remote door openers, cup holders, and an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input to plug in your phone. But the feature we know you'll love the most is the cool rumble seat in the back. It's even finished in a comfy cloth so legs won't get overheated even if you use this for a sunny day parade.
The dark engine bay funnels your attention to the red V8 in the middle. You'll even spot cool/classic pieces like the vintage air grabber and painted ribbed valve covers. This 305 cubic-inch V8 inhales deeper with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with a sweet tune as shorty headers feed a glasspack-style dual exhaust. The three-speed automatic transmission, upgraded independent front end, rack & pinion steering, and front disc brakes are all part of a package that makes this a fine cruiser.
You're looking at a strong-running and head-turning rumble seat Ford. But you're not the only one who can resist a package like this, so hurry up and call today!
