What's your flavor: The '39 or the '40 DeLuxe?

    I've always liked the '40 deluxe the best... but then again... I'm biased.

    It would be the 40 deluxe for me. Why?....things I prefer over the 39 are, the dash, the tail lights, the cowl mounted windshield wipers, the column shift.

    I like them both very much but the 1940 Ford deluxe would be my 1st choice.

    Post side by side photos of '39 & '40 Convertibles and see how much better the '39 looks. I just think the '39 is much nicer. Bob

    I'm a forty guy, but there's a lot to like about those other year Fords, as well.

    if the 39 had the 40 dash it would be perfect. I like the pop out windshield.

    I'll take a Maroon 39 coupe please.

    How about the 40 Standard ! Thats my favorite.
     
  14. I'd own either. Swing out windshields on 39's are awesome, but 40 dashes are a work of art

    I'd choose a 39 convert over a 40 convert, but a 40 coupe over a 39. Tough decision.

    I agree 100% with you! I love the 39's for the headlights, pop out windshield and tailights but the 40 dash is mucho sexy!!! Overall....I guess I'd take a 39 though if they were side by side...

    I prefer the 1939 Deluxe- 1939 Standard and 1940 Deluxe are quite different so not all 39's or all 40's are the same-

    I lust after a 39 coupe. I am way too poor to ever have (a good ?) one. Funny I still want a 39 Ford, cause I have a gang of rusty 40-41 Lincoln Continentals, and the resemblance is obvious.

    And 2nd reason, 39 was the first of the good transmission syncronizers. Ever hear any one brag about having a 38 floorshift. Its always 39.

    If I couldn't have both, I'd take the 39 over the 40. :D

    I prefer the '39. It is much smoother. The headllights match the fenders, No vent windows, the side moldings are cleaner, and the grill is a classic.
