I posted my '40 in the 76th anniversary thread, but thought I'd post it in here too.
I saw your car at the turkey run. It's a sweet ride! My dad and I were in the black 39 Tudor in the HAMB parking.
After owning my 1939 Ford Deluxe since early 70's and parking it around 1979, I finally gave it to my oldest son. We shipped it back to Illinois and hopefully he will put it back on the road.
Left NW Florida in 90+ weather. Got to central Illinois in rain, snow, and sleet in below freezing weather.
30TudorSedan, that is a beautiful coupe! ModelT1, that is really cool. I bet the car will have to get used to the climate change. It looks like your son has a great foundation to start with!
Two from a show on Sunday. JW
30tudorsedan, that black coupe is "goin' fast standing still"
You got a build thread or some suspension/tire/chassis info on how you got such a mean stance & beautiful proportions
Sure makes my 39 look like "drivin mrs.daisy"
My old 40. New owner said he may sell or would trade for a 1932 5W coupe!

Thanks! It's running a narrowed nova sub up front with narrowed fatman control arms and an ECI narrow trak disc brake setup, with cut coils to get it sitting right. The rear is a parallel leaf setup with 2" blocks and a 1" c notch. Tires are 195/65/15's on 15 x 5s and 235/75/15's on 15x6s in the rear. Hope that helps! It drove great going down the road!
Put up some progress pics in Oct/14, so several finished pics now...........have 2,800 mi on it already......
^^^^^^^^^^^^ Stunning, nice job.
Very, very nice.
Looking good Art! See you in April for lunch.

I thought this thread was for Deluxes not Standands. JW
1940 (no distinction) and 1939 (Deluxe only) -- so a '40 Standard is included. '39 Standard (which is a very different looking car) is excluded.
Not how I read it. JW
Heres a 39 roadster I had. Yes a roadster. Ford Australia built 50 with no windows in the doors and a different shaped roof.

This is my good friend Pats 40. This was his first car. He was only 14 years old, in 1957 when he got it.
Here are a few more close up, and detail shots. Great guy and 40 too.
I love stories like that, Ron. No matter what life has thrown at him over the years, he's held onto that Forty for 60 years. Sweet car and obviously a determined owner.
Thanks Ron, that's cool. JW
This is next. Not sure if it is tall enough....
Ron,your friends Pat's 40 is perfectly timeless,love the look.
May not be your style but here you go!
My 39 kiwi coupes waiting patiently for my return to the shop.
