    Thanks! The fronts are 195/65's on 15x5's and the rears are 235/75's on 15x6's. The front is cut coils on the nova sub and the rear is running 2 inch blocks. Always loved 40's that sit nice and low!

    Although the Nova clip is an unusual choice in a prewar Ford, I applaud the combination you're running. I very much like the Nova clip in my shoebox, and the tire sizes you're running are the ones I chose for the car in my avatar.

    Great thread. Hopefully you won't mind my 39' deluxe crashing the party along with the 40' pick up that followed me home from Arizona last month. ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1448595194.284738.jpg

    Don't know how well it rides and drives at highway speeds with that stance, but that is one great looking 40.

    I agree Don, the color, the red wheels, the whitewalls, all make it a standout car. Owned by Lou Nolfo, St Peters, Missouri.

    Agree on the '40 standard, beautiful car. Is that a stock '40 Ford color? If yes, what was it called?
     
  15. ...............Looks like it might be a variation of Sahara Tan.

  19. My pal, lothianwilly, 10387335_10202803442721519_3996176947987864117_n.jpg just sent me this picture. Marmon-Herrington conversion.
     
  20. After a rebuild, mine is put back together enough to drive and start working out the bugs, start making the tweaks and adjustments.

  21. Hey Phartman,

    I'm digging the upholstery in the sedan!
     
  22. I didn't know you had a 40 sedan Pete! Cool. Looks like some work has been done to the rear fender wheel opening.
     
  23. The auto trimmer and I are fans of both C&W music and cowboy Saturday matinee movies. We looked at the stock '40 interiors and decided to give it a more Western treatment ala Tom Mix and Hopalong Cassidy. We asked each other, "What would Cowboy Copas do?"

     
  24. You have a good eye, my friend. Yes, I had a discussion with Rik Hoving about putting the one-year-only '39 Merc fenders on my coach, and he told me he had only seen that once on a mild custom. I am a big fan of that fender, and never understood why the profile wasn't used more often by designers.

    [​IMG]

    So we lowered the '40 tire reveal 4-5" to mimic the '39 example. It results in the stance looking altered, but it is an illusion. The springs and other suspension components are stock. It rides like a dream.

    Damn Phartman, that is cool inspiration! Some of my best memories of my mispent years growing up in the 50s was going to grandma's and being able to watch Six Gun Playhouse on the TV. Whats more America than hot rods and cowboys???
