    DSC_0062MOD.jpg DSC_0061MOD.jpg Just bought this 40 Ford Deluxe Coupe and received it on Friday, after dreaming of one my whole adult life. Seems like a very good car so far. I'm in Colorado, but the car is from Minnesota. Does anyone from that area remember seeing it? I have very little history on it and would like to discover more.

    You're in Colorado, the car is from Minnesota and has a Kansas tag on it! Might not want to know the history!!! Sorry, couldn't resist.
    Great looking car, nice find.

    Great find.
    You know it's good since the door handles don't sag!:p
     
  16. I know the car. A buddy of mine in Winthrop MN bought it maybe 10 years ago....Near Minneapolis, perhaps from a widow. He had the interior put in it, sold or traded it to a guy in New Ulm. He had a it a bit, and then it traded hands several more times in Mankato. Cool old car, I always liked the look of it.

    Just a plate I had, put it on for fun while running a temporary plate. I grew up in KS and am a 54 model.

    As said before, the last owner was from Mankato, Mn. and he was having
    his friend at Unique Specialty & Classics of Mankato sell it for him.
    I believe the body and interior was pretty nice. I think the 327 needed
    a little freshening up. Nice chassis, All & all, a pretty darn good car.

    It's got a 327/350 - coincidently, exactly the same combo as in the 34 Ford I bought five years ago!
