    To me the only thing that improves a 40 coupe is to clean every thing off the trunk lid. Just sayin.

    40 Coupes are the one Ford that normally look far better unchopped than chopped. Probably because Most guys don't get the quarter windows right or the slope of the roof right.
    I used to see the one that 34Larry posted in post 6 a lot about 30 years ago and the chop is about as close to spot on as you will ever find on a 40.
    The blue one that A Boner just nails it for a full custom 40 though.

    Ever since the early 70's my wife has had a thing for red 40 coupes. At the street rod Nationals in Tulsa in 1973 every time I couldn't find her all I had to do was look for the red 40 coupe that was sitting out in the middle of the open area and she usually wasn't far away from it.

    Love all the pics of 40's!! On the hunt for another one. The tan std I pictured earlier is a super car and the fellow is up in age and is considering selling it. Nice car! Makes no sense as I like to build them but seriously considering bringing it back home. Wife really liked that one too.

    Looks like a good start on a build, Mike. How about a thread also?

    At a city park this afternoon with my 3 yr old granddaughter "bridging the gap" between my 80-yr-old Ford and her parents' 2-yr-old car, one o' them electric things.
