1940 Ford Standard Coupe – video walk around

What a lovely 1940 Ford Standard Coupe this is and very refreshing that it hasn’t been customized and retains its original charm.  Subject to a full nut and bolt restoration you can see the love that has gone into this car.

Power comes from a 221 cubic inch flathead V8 producing 85 horsepower and is connected to a 3-speed manual transmission.

The perfect black exterior contrasts perfectly with the red leather upholstery. Those gauges ooze period charm, the bakelite knobs and controls are great and even the original radio works.

This car would have originally cost you about $733 – they cost a bit more than that now.
