    Well, I’m picking up this little sweetheart tomorrow night. This is the first time I’ve ever bought what I would consider a “finished” car but I’ve got fat fendered fever and this will do just fine until I can get my 39 coupe on the road. She’s got a flathead with speed parts mated to a T-5. Unfortunately the owner passed and I am buying it from the family. I’ll take real good care of her!

  3. Great looking car, I've had two 40 Deluxe sedans and you can't ask for a better road car, your sedan reminds me of the famous Bob McCoy sedan, congratulations. HRP

    In this case it turns out it’s better to receive than give. Merry Christmas! and congratulations.

    I'm happy for you as 40's are one of my favorite cars. I'm in the process of buying a 40 myself. It doesn't look as beautiful as your car but it will be a genuine 40 Ford.

    That’s a possibility but it will be a few years.

    :D Very nice Sir Congrats.Back many decades ago when I was growing up,a friend of mine and his Dad had between them 12 or 15 40 Ford cars.To say that they were Fordnatics would be an under statement.All were drivers too.I was about 13 at the time.So that was about 60 years ago.
    Good luck.Have fun.Be safe.
