    My 40 standard spent 50 years on display in a Ford dealer showroom in Iowa. Found by KIRK on the Hamb in 2012 and brought to California. The one repaint was done in 1954. I bought it from Mickey Himsl in April 2016.

    80 mph! What kind of running gear are you running in that Sedan? Hows the wind noise at 80?

    My 40 has a warmed over 8BA with a stock trans and rear and I can push 85mph easy. I'm assuming someone swapped the rear to highway gears. It was a real nice surprise when I bought the car
