  3. Sell it to someone that would appreciate a cool 40! If you wanted an excuse to post a photo of your car , you should have just posted it on one of the many fitting threads. JMO

    When I consider selling a car, there is a reason.
    Do you need space, tired of it, you want something different, need the cash, etc?
    You have that answer, we don't.
    Cool '40.

    selling a 40 ford will only lead to future regret.....

    I know the feeling. You want more room for the family,but they don't really want to hang out at the swap/cruise-in/ show/junkyard/vintage drive-in anyway. Keep it.

    As Moriarity says: You will regret it, I have regretted selling three previous one but this fourth one I will definitely keep. I would so the same if I were you. Nice 40 for sure and a little different to separate you from the rest.

    What is the reason to sell is my first thought? For some the build is the thrill. I keep most that I build because that's what I wanted. Some builds are for flip purposes to further other projects.

  14. I've been shopping and watching for the "Right" 40 Coupe to replace one I had for a few years. Yours could be it. If your serious send me a P.M. with a number, let's see where it goes.

    Very simple.
    If you really want to sell it, then sell it.
    If you don't want to or don't have to sell it, don't.
    Don't worry about who you sell it to. Cash talks.

    There are those who say 40's and 50's cars are losing value.
    Hard to believe that could happen to a nice 40 Ford.

    I see the ad. I also see where he lists how much he has invested in it (street rod frame ifs etc) but nowhere in the ad does it say how much he wants for it......
