A little surprised by the number of 39 votes, but mine is 40 Dlx all the way. Have wanted one from the age of 3. Now have one and couldn't be happier.

Funny, as a kid growing up (born '75) reading HRM, I wouldn't even know 39's existed. It seemed fat fender 40's painted teal or pink or cheeze-whiz-orange were the only one of the two years that were featured.

But since you asked, for me the 39 just edges out the 40.

I love the '39 Tudor... except for the giant refrigerator door handle on the deck lid. Easy enough to fix though, I suppose.

If I were shopping for a near-stock vehicle, I'd buy a '40 Standard coupe or tudor. But I think several Deluxe upgrades would be in order: Headlights, 2 taillights, instrument cluster and a chrome grille.

I've never owned a '39 but have owned 3-1940's (one standard, two deluxes).
There are parts and features on all the above that I like and dislike. Overall, I end up liking 40 deluxes the best. That being said, I really like the floor shift and gauges of the '39.
I guess it mainly depends on the individual car though.

I'd also go with the 1940 standard coupe. IMO it's the best of both the '39 & '40 designs.

39's are really cool.
40's are really cool.
Hmmmm, tough ask.
Give me one of each for about 20 years and I'll tell ya.

'39, not "hands down" so to speak, but definitely still a '39. Wouldn't say no to a '40 dash though!

'39 for all of the same reasons the OP gave. They are a class act!

I love the '40 Standard. Has the cool 40-look headlights but the simpler 39-look grille.
