With brand new Plymouth cones, what we all wanted but I never had.
Here is my two!
wow, that convertible is SOME NICE, Socal34! Did you see the one that sold on Mecum-Kansas City the other night on TV? Was non-stock color (black cherry), black top unchopped, stock drive train with the exception of Fenton headers for dual exhaust. Brought $45K which I was surprised at, seemed cheaper than I expected.
THAT IS COOL AS IT GETS !
Dick Falk's coupe -- maybe my favorite '40:
A pair of interesting phantom short-top '40 Converts:
The short tops are awesome.....damn
Here's my 1939 just out of 35+ years slumber. 14 years in a garage in Illinois. It spent the last 21 years in the shed near the red truck. Couldn't resist adding it.
Headlights are the JC Whitney type conversion. The small cat eyes are now my blinkers along with those goofy fog lites.
A few other posts mentioned using 39 headlights on a 40. I considered replacing these with original 39 buckets and rims with a modern bulb or using the chrome 40 Ford rims. Probably will need the 40 buckets.
The black one was built from a real steel '39, and is beautifully detailed as a '40 Dlx. It still has a rumble-sized trunk lid, though. I believe the gold one is fiberglass, and was made with a '39-style cockpit but a '40 trunk lid. They are cool looking, aren't they?
Here's my "hope to be a hot rod someday" '40 Tudor.
The black one was part of Chris Unger's collection in Orange, Ca., had a Chrisman flathead as I recall.
Just finished mine Looking forward to getting it out this year
Dick Falk's coupe. What tail lights??
my old faded out 40 convert California car no rust ever. cant believe I let this one get away. had real halibrands
'41 Studebaker. Because they are very hard to find, Dick (and others) make repops of them. I have a set on my car, too.
one of my old sedans
maybe heres a picture of mine 302 5 speed 9inch drop ibeam
Thanks Mr.50. I like the looks of those as much as the early Vette tail lights. I have '39 fenders on my car because the wheel well's were already opened-up. And I didn't want to mess up my '40 fenders. But I think I am already done looking at the "tear drop lights". Looking for some thing different. These might just be it. Thanks, Gene.
Beautiful standard^^^^^^^^ nor, sorry for the screwed up posting.
VERY nice! What's the color?
Thank you rant & A I modified Cloud Mist Grey to a lighter color using S
Glad to see this thread back to the top!! planning on cruising my 40 this weekend!!
My dads and a buddies at a cruise to the park.
Is the black or the one that I posted a pic of at the top of the page, from the award line of the SK500?
Yes, the black one is the one you posted a picture of. That one is my buddies, and the flathead you made mention of. He built and runs just as good as it looks.
