`40 Ford Standard Two-Door Sedan: Looks Stock but is Slightly Hot!

September 6th, 2019

The long-term owners of this very cool, body-off restored `40 Ford Standard two-door sedan recently engaged me to appraise it. This car has some very subtle modifications, including a later 1940s Ford flathead V8 with an aluminum intake manifold sporting two Ford 94 two-barrel carburetors and steel tubing exhaust headers, a very rare inline overdrive unit, a dual circuit master cylinder, and front disc brakes. Yet the vibe is still “all stock” including the reproduction Firestone bias ply white wall tires and dog-dish hubcaps. Neat!!
