Tickets can be purchased by: calling (260) 927-8022; sending a check to :Early Ford V-8 Foundation, PO Box 284, Auburn, IN. 46706; or through several V-8 Club Regional Groups across the country.

I bought a couple and may buy a few more. Probably the only way I'll ever have a chance to have a 1940 Ford! Great cause and reasonable odds, I like it!

Is this the same '40 that was being raffled at Louisville (street rod nationals) and Bowling Green KY (Goodguys) last year?

Hi Everyone, I bought ten tickets for the car, and the two books mentioned in the most recent Foundation newsletter. Then I gave some money to the general fund.

I say buy a bunch and buy them early. That way we'll find out the outcome sooner!

Take another look at this great 1940 Ford Deluxe Coupe that has been donated to the Early Ford V8 Foundation to help raise funds for the planned Extension. It is one beautiful old Ford V8.

O.K guys here's some further info on the '40 business (opera) coupe. It's an older frame off restoration of a touring quality car. Converted to 12 volts (alternator) with all new wiring and fuse panel hidden in the left cowl panel. A strong and cool running flathead (new 94 carb) with 3.78 rear gears. Tube shocks at all four corners and sway bars front and back. The front is a little lower by using a reversed leaf eye spring. 15" wheels with big and little bias belted wide whites. The spare is a brand new WWW that still has the tag on the tire. Inside the seats have the original upholstery. The headliner/windlace and all panels (kick, door, quarter and back panels) are new from Lebaron -Bonney. Insulation was installed in the roof and quarters prior to the new panels being installed. There is also new carpet on the rear floor. All new window channels etc. There's a lengthy list of what has been done to the car and the list will be given to the winner.
If everyone buys two tickets the odds drop to one chance in 2000. If everyone buys 4 tickets the odds drop to one in 1000. You can't get those odds at Powerball or a casino. Everyone who buys a ticket is supporting the V-8 Foundation and will be helping to build the new building and help to preserve V-8 history in the Foundation Museum.

I screwed up and sent the check without an SSA so I can get my ticket stubs. What should I do? Obviously send an envelope but will they be able to find the tickets etc? Or will they contact me if I win?
The last I ever won anything was the draft lottery in 1965.

Bad 60's joke
Did you hear about the Edsel raffle from 60's?
The winner gets a chevy and all the loosers get Edsels.

Sorry about sharing that..Don;t know what came over me.
I never though the Edsel looked bad..But It became a joke early on.

Here is a pictures of the 1940 Ford Deluxe Coupe Raffle Car on temporary display at the Early Ford V8 Foundation Museum Auburn, Indiana, along with their other old Fords. The 1940 Ford is on the far left in the second picture. It will be a shame to see it missing from this great display of old Fords at the Museum.

Looks like it is a Ford color. The 1940 Ford that fell off of the trailer in the truck accident was the same color and this Fordor appears to be the same color.

Up until 1936 ,the Ditzler color chart I have shows 10 different shades of green. I would expect some of those carried over to 1940 as well.

Ford offered three green colors in 1940: Acadia Green, Yosemite Green and Seafoam Gray. I think the color on the coupe is Acadia Green. Yosemite Green is very dark. Seafoam Gray is very light. Acadia Green is in between both and is the color on my 40 Tonner. (photos attached)

If I were to win it I would leave it as it is, and drive it all over the lower 48 states before heading for home in Alaska. I probably would ship it from Seattle though. there are a lot of long stretches in Canada with no help, especially for this old of a car. help with experience and parts would be hard to come by.-----Jim

O.K guys the color of the 40 is Cloudmist Gray. If you look at the color chips in the Ditzler paint manual for Fords from 37-48 the Cloudmist Gray chip is on the money for the color on the coupe. Photos , depending on lighting and whether taken indoors or out, can change the actual color on a car. The photos you have seen actually make the color look darker. Posting them from a photo onto a computer also has an effect on the color.

Awe come on Jim, a trip like that would be fun! I'll even take off work and go with you. I just hope it's coming all the way up to North Pole though(already sent off for my tickets).

In my defense:

To spell is one of those verbs with both an irregular form and a regular form. (See the table below for some others.) The past tense and the past participle can be written as either spelled or spelt.

Always room to learn something.

Hi Everyone, Try calling and using a debit card. Possibly the credit card is a no-go for the authorities because it's a raffle.

Hey, I may need to build an addition on the garage when I win this, but then I should have called the contractors to get started as soon as I bought my tickets!! Another botched up planning job on my part

Our chapter president emailed today to tell us she has to return unsold tickets to the Foundation after our event Saturday and that the Foundation was sold out.
Jim636 you should private message Cecil/WV if you want a ticket. I'll invite you over to Webster, NY to see the 1940 in my garage.

I think the car raffle price for tickets and the odds or the number of tickets printed was very fair. Compared to a lot of other car raffles/fundraisers it is about the best bargain I have ever seen.Mayby this is because of the generosity of the donor with no investment into the prize but I bet the foundation could have done a lot better raising funds. If tickets are already almost sold out they could have probably sold a lot more especially into the National meet time. Must have needed some quick cash.Again not complaining about the odds but think they missed a better opportunity for fund raising in a longer period of time. Car appraised at $40,000,tickets to sell $40,000. very fair.

I agree with you they could have sold twice the amount of tickets and still would have been a good deal and made more money for the foundation.

Understand the rationale but there is another side to the discussion...if the raffle were open-ended, how many folks would have bought tickets? I bought mine because I knew that there would be a reasonable chance of winning. I don't buy lotto tickets because the odds are so outrageous that it is just a waste of money. This was a very generous gesture on the part of the owners, some day I wish that I will be in a position to do the same to support such a worthwhile cause.

I have belonged to the V8 Club since 1971 and this is the best raffle I have ever seen the Club ,well actually this is for the foundation ,do. I remember at the 1973 Grand National the first when it was safe to have them in Dearborn a new 1973 Pinto Squire wagon was given away about 1978 or so one of the meets raffled off a restored 47 or 48 convertible and that is about it for cars as I remember than came along engines.All of these other raffles were given a lot of coverage in the magazine before drawing probably at least 6 months prior. Its all good though very fair for all.

What a "smart" gift by the Johnson's. The foundation doesn't need another old car, it needs cash. A nice tax deduction for the Johnsons, a shot of cash for the Foundation and a wonderful gift for some lucky raffle participant. Win Win Win.

Hi Everyone, 1942deluxe, I'm on pins and needles right now... About 45 minutes until the drawing. I have a 1 in 200 chance, I bought twenty tickets.

This is Frank Miller's '49, my '36, and Josh Conrad, I think he's the Director of Collections, or something like that. He basically lives his life around the Foundation.

At the first Eastern National Meet in Charlotte, they had a raffle for a WWII Ford Jeep. That was what set my dad off on a quest and ended up with 17 of them and 2 GPA's!!

I never win anything. For all us losers at least we won't have to come up with the tax money on the value of the car. What is the estimated value of a car like that?

Hey, this was fun and exciting!! Let's have another raffle ASAP!! ....all we need is someone to donate a beautifully restored '35 Ford Deluxe, Dearborn Blue in color, Roadster to the Early Ford Foundation, and I would be happy to buy 5 -10 more tickets right now

Congratulations to the big winner out there in Colorado!! What a great way to celebrate St. Patty's Day, by winning a nice Green colored 40 Ford Coupe.
