    I don't drink coffee at night, I got a feeling you don't either seeing you posted that picture at just after 4am. :cool:

    Haha. It was 6am here. Way past time to get up.... one of the guys at coffee once asked if I knew what my neighbors thought about how loud my cars are at 6 am ( especially my corvette it’s real loud) and I told him I was doing the neighbors a favor because “ people die in bed” ....

    Looks like we have a 39 Deluxe with 40 deluxe sheet metal. I notice it has 40 Ford windshield wipers and 40 vent windows. Someone has gone to a lot of work to update this 39 coupe. Looks great!

    ^^^That crème woody (that didn't sound right) a couple pics up, I have never seen tire/wheels fit one better. Radials aside, perfect in my opinion.
    6am is peeing time, then back to bed for a bit. I only git up that early for 3 things; swap meetin, airport'n and occasionally golf'n. I almost died this year but it was jogging in the morning, if I stayed in bed where I belonged (and like my wife told me to do) I would have faired better...for a time.

  15. 20191023_110108.jpg 20191021_164711.jpg The coupe made its first trip into Texas this week. It may be a bit cliche, but I did wear cowboy boots, cheap sunglasses, and listened to ZZ Top for the entire trip. LOL

    I wanted to do this on November 4th but life got in the way. Why November 4th? Well, on November 4th, 1979, the big news of the day was the takeover of the US Embassy in Tehran, but for me I purchased a virtually 40-year-old car - my first 1940 Ford tudor sedan. An 18-year old carpenter's apprentice who just got laid off after a store remodel was done. Probably was stupid for me at the time to do it. Sure, it was a shell and a "basket case" that was missing a lot of stuff, but the dream was to rod it out since it was missing the engine, transmission, most of the interior, etc. From that point forward I picked up a '40 Deluxe coupe from a salvage yard for some of the stuff I was missing (too bad the body was clapped out and used for rip-rap), then a '40 Deluxe tudor that was complete but had a stuck original 221 V8 (was eventually sold off when I moved to Kansas in the late '90s). It opened the door for me to go to swap meets, rod runs, help start a car club in Wahoo, immerse myself in collecting factory literature, and eventually get into a '55 Ford Victoria and my '63 T-birds. And, yet, after all those years I still have the '40, the '55 and the T-birds. And I'm still scouring swap meets to find parts for it (sold most everything off 11 years ago thinking I wouldn't have a place to put it when I moved back to Nebraska). And so it sits, and waits - I joked it would be my 'retirement project' and that isn't all that far around the corner now. So much for procrastination...so...
    I bought my '40 when it was 40 years old (okay, the pieces of windows that survived had date codes of April '40 on them - close enough), and...
    I've had my '40 for 40 years now.

  21. Mike Meeker volunteered to go up to St Louis with me and haul this one back to his barn.
    20191115_125336.jpg Just polished off a couple of roast beast sandwiches and getting ready to head back to SW Missouri.
    20191115_113248.jpg Front fenders are relatively straight but quite pitted.
    20191115_113201.jpg
    Hood sees pretty straight but the driver's side lower rear is bent slightly inward.
    Didn't take any photos of the original grille, but the cast parts will work for a beater.

    The current plans for the driveline will be the 221 flatty that I pulled from my '40 stake truck, backed by a Saginaw 4 speed, and an 8" with 3.25 gears out back. Have a dropped '40 axle from Sid, and will run late Ford bolt pattern wheels front and back, most likely another set of American Torq Thrust Originals with 165/80R15's up front and 235/75r15's out back.

    The last 2 pics in my post are as current as can be - nothing done to it since 2015. Before that it sat behind my parents' garage for 35 year (top pic). If you've seen it it had to be before fall 1979 or you were trespassing.
