    Bought a 40 ford coupe has been sitting for 7 years. Got it running after redoing brakes and dizzy. Runs and drives good. will leave the flathead in and repaint body and redo upholstery. Will post pictures as I go. Great site for information.

    Nice score. You are doing it right, fixing brakes, getting it running. Drive and enjoy while you work on it. You will find it is a lot more fun driving it and you will be more motivated to keep it on the road while you make improvements. HAVE FUN>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Interesting, the 14" wheels. ('57 Chrysler, by any chance? 5-on-5-1/2")

    The wheel and tire choice would hint at how long ago those were fitted...

    Beautiful car, BTW. Love the Standards.
     
  12. Old Tin,

    Neat story in your profile about your 40 Coupe!

    Welcome to the wonderful world of '40s'. I drive mine to the hardware store,grocery, and for little stuff the lumber yard. I meet people I wouldn't have met any other way wanting to tell me stories about people they knew growing up who had '40s. I picked up my buddy Jim when I first got mine, and he said "You know buddy, I remember when this car was new"!

    Looks like you have a great car there, mine started out with very similar interior.

    I'm in the same mode as you- my flattie is a '49 Merc, and its staying. I'm getting it safe and functional, and driving it. Mine's a Deluxe.

    Looks like a great coupe. Wish I had a flatie in my 39 Ford Deluxe coupe.
