First, compliments on a fine looking '40 Tudor. Grand Dad did a nice job and appears to have kept it pretty.
LOL, saw the duct tape too. Please only use it to get home in an emergency

Yes, from what I can tell my Grandaddy had added some of the Deluxe features to this Standard.

If you want a clock, keep the Deluxe door; Standards didn't come with one.

As McGiver would say "Duct tape, don't leave home without it"
Wonderful car you got, happy it is still in the family.

The project for tonight...scooting the seat back. I mean literally just pulling the handle and scooting the seat back lol. Three hours and an unbolted seat from the floor and bam the seat mechanism now moves front and back. I know my Grandaddy is looking down and laughing. On a good day he was 5'8", I am 6', I needed the extra room. I felt like I was driving the 40' in Mario Cart lol. Also, took off the passenger side radiator hose, sanded the two areas where the hose attaches and now no more radiator leak.

I see EAB in the center of the right head. That is a '52 or '53 Ford. The highest compression head that Ford made for the flat heads. Hope you have one on the left side also. Very nice car!
