The Only One Left: 1940 Ford Limo


The military had eight of these built and this is thought to be the only survivor! It’s listed here on craigslist for $35,000. That might seem like a lot but it’s a lot cheaper than I’ve seen it advertised for elsewhere, like here on haggleme where it’s listed for $49,500. Mike Z found this rare and interesting Ford, so special thanks to Mike.

The body appears mostly complete except for one fender and some glass and trim. The engine is there, but there’s no word on its state. This was used as a shuttle between Glendale and Phoenix until the late sixties, so it surely has lots of miles and wear. There’s no mention of rust issues and there doesn’t appear to be any in the photos.

looking to front
The inside looks mostly complete, but well worn. This would be a huge undertaking, but perhaps it will appeal to a limousine or shuttle operator. Can you imagine how cool this would look?
