Great find. Love 40's
My oldest daughter (a '74 model) loves the big band music of that era. When others her age were listening to rock, she was grooving to Glen Miller, Benny Goodman, etc. The old folks had a great time at her wedding reception. Noticed that your '40 Standard has a passenger side taillight. Most Standards had a single taillight on the driver's side. You could order a passenger side taillight optional, and some states were requiring two taillights by 1940, so the ones sold new in those states had to have two taillights.
More photos, please!

Good find at a great price!
Me likey!!! The car and the Hooters girl idea. Hot rod it.
Nice standard tudor at a righteous price! Good on you! Clean it up and drive it is my vote.
Very nice, I think you did great on the $$$ side of it too. Enjoy.
Awesome! Welcome to the 40 Standard Sedan club. We are a small, but dedicated bunch.
As requested, more pics. Only thing missing is DS door window frame. Oh well. One picture shows the only hole in the body.
Nice looking 'lil Tudor. I really dig the '40 Standards, although I am a bit biased, having a '39 DeLuxe myself...
Get it running, pack all your friends into that couch of a rear seat, and drive the wheels off of it.
Looks great, I'd enjoy it some before you decide anything. You might just end up keeping it.
Big band music? You're lucky; I'm in rural Minnesota and all I can get on the AM radio in my '51 Ford are farm reports (mostly in Spanish).
OK everyone. After coming down from the score high, have decided to let a Hamber take this project on. Pay it forward. You all know what I have in it, and you know what it is worth. I would like to trade it even up for a HAMB friendly car or truck that is less of a project. PM me with what you got.
