Re: Ford Photos

Thanks for sharing. I've always loved 1940 Station Wagons!
Yours reminded me a bit of one I built back in 1982... I had to make all of the wood too, but mine only took a year to complete. It never...

Re: Ford Photos

Here are photos of my family's 1940 Fords, and Dad's 1953 Mercury Monterey. I bought the 1940 Coupe back in 1974 for $225.00; it was a worn out modified car that I did not complete until 1989. I...

Re: 40 Coupe Trunk Lid Bumpers:

Although my car is a "modified", it is an "early" which also had the October '39 date codes on the glass (Just like today, the "new" cars are released in September or October of the previous year.)....

Re: 1940 Turns 50 tour in Reno Video?

Steve:

No problem, glad to help. You brought back some great memories that dad and I shared that weekend. The photos you attached of your car did not display.

Re: 1940 Turns 50 tour in Reno Video?

I had just finished my Coupe the year before. I ran across some of the San Jose 40's at a run to Lodi, CA. They told me about the "40 is 50" tour from Reno, but I knew I was not able to get enough...

Re: Stories from the good ol days ?? Anyone

Years ago I had a neighbor who lived across the street, and was nearing retirement. One day he saw me working on my 1940 Coupe in my driveway.
He walked over and said how much my car brought back...

How to repaint a 1940 Ford Deluxe Dash?

Both of my family's 40's are modified, but I have always loved the look of the stock two-toned Deluxe dashboards! I currently have an extra dash I'd like to repaint in the original colors, and...

Re: 1940 vent window

I seem to remember that the vent window levers are held on with small roll pins.

Re: Amount OF TIME TO BUILD YOUR CAR

The 1940 Ford Coupe in my avatar took me 15 years to complete (I bought it in 1974, when I was just 15 years old, and finished it in the summer of 1989.). With the experience I gained on the coupe,...
