1940 Ford Two-Door


What a nice looking old car! This 1940 Ford two-door looks very original, although no claim of originality is made by the seller. As a matter of fact, they don’t tell us much at all! We don’t know how many miles it has, much about any work that has been done, or much of anything about its history, other than that it is currently located in Golden, Colorado.

Not only is the paint shiny, so is the chrome. Notice that the fins are straight as well. This is a really attractive car, and I don’t generally care for brown cars. Thanks to Stu for putting us on to this great find!

Here’s the rear view, and it looks just as nice as the front. Don’t those open doors look inviting? And as you can see on the left, this Ford is keeping company with a much faster Ford on the left! The seller does tell us that the floor and frame are “nice.”

While the interior isn’t perfect, it certainly doesn’t look bad. There is a missing radio according to the seller and the clock seems to be gone as well (that’s the hole in the right side of the dash.)

There’s an awful lot of leg room back there! Again, it’s not perfect, but it’s nice. Overall, this looks like a 4 to 5 year old used car that’s been kept up with.

The seller tells us that this is a 59A flathead V8, which means it could be from a later car. It doesn’t look as nice cosmetically as the outside of the car, but the seller says it runs, drives and stops well. I don’t know about you, but this looks like a pretty decent car to pursue. If you are interested, it’s up for sale here on eBay, with bidding still below $6,000. What do you think it will take to own this one?
