Just finished this one up for a customer.
My 1939 Ford Coupe - and my boss's 1940 Ford Coupe built by Alloway's Rod Shop.
There probably is an unwritten law someplace out there, but there are exceptions to every rule, (law). The tunneled Caddy,s lights are spot on IMHO. This 40 being and seeing what is, the Chevrons would be out of place.
Speaking just for myself only, changing this truly ionic classic Ford deemed sacrilege by many, IE: : ( gross irreverence toward a hallowed person, place, or thing), into what it has become, justifies the end results a thousand times over.
..................Is that the one with the John Kasse Boss 429?
YES IT IS - 504 CUBES - 700 H/P - This car is chubby at 4,100# in weight. The Boss 9 really pulls strong. Has 4.56 gears and TKO 5 speed Tremac overdrive. My Gold 39 has a 327 with 30/30 cam and 4.44 rear and Columbia 2 speed with a Muncie 4 speed trans.
Saw your Boss's car at Shades of the Past last year in the Alloway display....Incredible!

45 years apart. I still miss my green 40 !!
My 40, built by Jim Lowrey
That is one beautiful 40 and I bet it is a first class driver.
My 40 out yesterday
Not mine, however I wouldn't say no. An interstate car that's been around forever!
Local gem -built in '60, 3/8x3/8 , 3 deuces, clay smith cam, etc. Runs strong! muncie 4 spd, owner said he got tired of changing trans. Old black laquer. Very cool car.
classy and clean
This is a work in the process....trying to return it to running/moving status...
Still have thousands to spend to get it to move under its own power...shooting for next spring to drive it...
WOW, I wonder if it's a survivor, or a new build. I've never seen that one at any North West show.
I think I remember that car from the late 70's. I have long forgotten the owners name but I think the car was located in Everett WA area at the time and was a light metallic green. I know I have a picture of it somewhere. Maybe my ex wife has it.....
Nice lines on them 40s
My present 40 and my high school transportation in one. Still trying to get the hood painted.
Thanks, it goes down the road like a dream.
Just seeing if you're paying attension, Pict of my tub
