    Technically not a coupe or sedan, what about an Australian sloper (Fords and GM Australia answer to the later Fisher bodied GM aero bodies 1942 up.) Available 1938-1940.

    I like chopped tops, but, man those 40's with the stock look are just plain SMOOOTH.........and a little rake is "it" for stance. I might have to drop the front end on the 52 Vic a scoshy bit........ m

    A 40 Ford coupe to me is one of the best looking cars ever made. Chopping ruins the proportions of an otherwise great looking car.

    Bingo Gman. I also never understood the "no-hoods" crowd with these cars as it completely screws the lines of the original car. I don't have or didn't have a 40 but I had a 39 Deluxe 2 door with Pontiac 389 in the late 60's I loved that car. - EM
