    Well, last year I traded my 40 to another HAMBer and have regretted it ever since:( When I saw it back on here for sale again I was pumped! Its back home to stay! I drove it all over town today and had a blast:D Another Hamber buddy of mine, Mudd, painted the dash and garnish the same color as I had him paint the wheels a year or so ago. Just got it back from him yesterday. Plan on putting a new trunk floor in it and driving it to LSR in April if the old Flathead holds up:D then next winter building a new Flathead for it. Here are some pics from today.

    Thanks guys! Put a lot of work into that thing before I traded it off, still has a ways to go, but its a driver and always will be.

    Chad, that sounds like a good idea!

    A '40 Ford Deluxe coupe is my favorite next to a '56 Nomad. If I ever get one, I'll never sell it. Glad you got it back. Bring it to Dewey in May.

    Sweet. It's like getting back together with an old friend.
     
  15. Nice. I couldn't believe it when you traded it away. That roadster is nice but c'mon, a '40 coupe = Awesome!

    Yep, watching it get hauled off on BenD's trailer was terrible. However I did do well with the Roadster and bought the 40 back right, so I can't complain. It won't be leaving again though:cool:

    How you ever managed to sell it in the first place is beyond my comprehension. One day I'll have a '39 or a '40...oh a man can dream, a man can dream.

    :p

    Must have killed you to sell it in the first place. Love it and good luck.
     
  25. Love that forty!
    I sold my '37 years ago and immediately regretted it. Good thing I sold it to a family member and was able to get it back. I have it now for 31 years, minus it's 4 month hiatus.

    Nice Tom. Couldn't believe you ever sold it. Congrats on getting it back, really like the dash and garnish mouldings (great color). Hard to beat a black 40 coupe. Gary
