Here is a nice 1940 Ford Deluxe convertible built to the late Forties hop upstyle. This neat original Ford was modified about 25 years ago by Hot RodHistorian Don Montgomery. The car was set up to be as it might have been in thelate 1940s. The exterior has genuine steel, DeSoto bumpers, flipper hub capswith beauty rings and original style rear fender skirts, with the correct leverclamping arms. The car is lowered using longer shackles and de-arched springs aswas often done back then (Note that the car is not as low as the present daystreet rods are). The 15" Ford wheels have 6.70 x 15 Firestone whitewall tireson them. The car is like a mild hop up (street rod) of that postwar period. Highperformance was not forgotten. The Ford/Mercury flathead engine has added speedequipment including a 1936 McCulloch supercharger, Edlebrock heads, a Potvin camand Fenton iron headers.
