Glad to see this one active again.
Thanks! Do you still own it?
Chalkboard----Great ideas incorporated into your car---luvit. My 40 is my avatar and there is an album at my site. I cannot learn how to post pictures.
Yes I do, and hopefully will never have to sell it.
I have had this one 50 years.. still running original flathead.
It doesn't get any better than that when it comes to 40 FORDS. Nicely done.
this one is going to follow me home tomorrow, have to update my avatar. Traded up to it with my A. Wife is very happy, much more comfortable for us 'ol folks.
Here's my 40. Still a long ways but it moves under its own power.
got it home, here are some more pics. Old build, lacquer checked with age, 80s velour interior but a solid Henry built steel car. Very nice underneath, painted and pinstriped on frame and gas tank. Dropped axle, parallel leafs in rear, 9" ford. Motor number reveals it to be a '70 300hp 350. My wife loves the upgrade in comfort from our Model A pickup.
Here is my 39. It is a survivor.

Guess I'll throw in a couple of my basically stock convertible
Here is my RHD version, originally built for South Africa....all stock drivetrain but lowered front and back.....looks nice and shiney in the pix but is a ten footer.....had paint perfect cars in the past but this one is by far the favourite, just get in and drive and don't worry about chips,dirt or road rash.
I think it is great that you've owned it for 50 years, so many of us have let some great cars pass thru our fingers.
Beautiful car, '39 Deluxe are my favorite.
Oldcurmdgeon, that is a nice car even if it is a little aged. Someone did it very nice when they built it!
I'll say; and you could still eat off that chassis... Quite a drop in that tube axle, and yet, the wish-bones are still not split......
I've been collecting parts for about 8 years. Someday I'd like some satin paint on it but for now, Probably not the most hamb friendly car but, ratty paint, air suspension. Lays the frame. Mii front. triangulated 4link rear. 57 ford 9" 3.50 posi, 4l60e trans. Has a 327 that will be traditional in about 20 years....haha.....pic with a hood.
The latest pictures of mine.
My son and I ran across this one last weekend.
Here is my project it still wears its original paint. ITS FOR SALE OR TRADE IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED
Wow, nice car!
I thought I would add a few updated pics of my christmas present. I replaced the entire brake system, new tires. Fixed a hung exhaust valve and rubbed out the paint. so what do you think so far?
Flatblack 31----love that 39 dlx coupe !!! My favorite color on a 39-40. Have done 5 this color and doing another now.
...I think it need to belong too me...
Killer coupe man.
mine.....................Oops, sorry. It's a Standard.
Old-Soul Thanks! When I'm ready to get rid of it I'll let you know! LOL
