I have always been partial to the 40 Dlx. This one runs a blown 276 flatty.

Like em' both but if I was buyin' one for myself it would have to be a 39. I like the no vent windows and grill on the 39's better. It always seems like the 40 is more popular though.

All over a 39' deluxe!! And the dash, I prefer it to the car. It just goes better.

The 40' dash is almost too pretty for the car that goes with it....not that I wouldn't deal with it

39. The grille,lights,windscreen,floor shift and tail lights do it for me..but do agree that the 40 dash is a work of art....Rod....

39 for me. The hinged windshield is my favorite part, honestly i like all the small things in a 39 over a 40. except maybe the gauge cluster

As you say, they are essentually the same look, but there are a lot of differences. But since we have a 40, I have to stay true to it.

My first choice would be the '39. My Dad had one with a blown flathead back in '50.

'39. I like the grill, the headlights, the floor shift.
On the convertibles, the top on the '40 looks too bulky to me.
And I like the wood better on the '39 wagons. (Don't tell Sawzall )
But, I'm prejudiced.

Definatly the 40 Deluxe. Love the grille & the headlight trim. The dash is a classic and I love the chevron taillights.

This is interesting, I would have thought '40s were a shoe-in. They are both classic and classey designs, but I prefer '39 Deluxe, they're a little cleaner. That's what I was looking for when I found and bought my '41 (it was WAAAYYY more affordable) and I think I'll still have a blast.

Someone needs to count the votes. I'm nonplussed, being a fortynut, even though there's a sweet green '39 Deluxe coupe with a blown small block I've seen in a few of the magazines that is damn near perfect.

For me the forty just seems the slicker of the two. Just an opinion.
