Default 1940 Ford Standard Vs Deluxe

1940 Ford Coupe: As casually viewed from the outside; the Hood and Grille of a Deluxe is different than that of a Standard. Could one remove the Hood and Grille from the Deluxe and bolt the Standard's Hood and Grille in it's place?.......ie; what are the interchangabilty differences?

There was no difference on the tub so it should be a bolt on. There may have been some minor differences in the fenders but I don't think it will affect installing the hood and grill.

Yes you can switch front end sheetmetal, I've seen it done can't tell the difference. Only difference would be the windshield wipers on the standard are on the roof and deluxe are on the cowl.

yes, the standard grill and hood will bolt directly to a deluxe. but then you will have a deluxe with a standard nose, there are several differences between a standard and deluxe- gauges, door window garnish moldings, front fender supports, trim on the dash board, headlight doors, vent window lock levers, to name a few.

Not sure if it would be an issue for you, but the Deluxe bumper brackets are longer than the Standard's, due to the different grill design.

The OP asks if he can change a Dlx into a Std. Here's a '40 cvt that's been made into a Std; Ford never made a Std convertible:

I had a 40 cpe with a 39 grill. Opra coupe.
I think the standard/39 grill is smoother. cleaner lines.

Both the Deluxe and Standards had the wipers on the cowl. It was the 39's that had the wipers on the roof.

I personally like a 40 deluxe, and years ago was more desirable, but lately a lot of guys have been converting their 40 deluxe's to standards. anyway the other diferences are the standard had on tail light, one sunvisor and did'nt have a clock, but I love all , anybody have a 39 or 40 4 door floor ? I have a 39 convertible sedan that needs a floor.

The dash is different in a standard also. The cluster is cleaner and less " busy " . The standard had painted headlight doors where the DeLuxe came with chrome. BUT most rodders buy the chrome repops ...



I also prefer the standard over a DeLuxe.

1940 Ford Deluxe was the "High Water Mark" for Ford styling IMHO! The 1941, I used to think were just "butt fugly" have kinda grown on me after all these years. My personal favorite I must say has always been the 46-48 coupes!

Does anyone have any comparison pictures of the garnish moldings to show the differences? (probably a newb request)

The trim pieces on the hood sides are a little shorter on the Std. to conform to the different hood contour. Keep this in mind if you plan to re-use them on a Deluxe hood. They will fit, just not as well as the proper Deluxe hood trim.
