Description
Lot #2008 - This 1940 Ford DeLuxe convertible coupe is one of 23,704 built. A rolling shell with pristine panels, Boyd's vision called for largely stock outward appearance accentuated by a lowered stance and massive rolling stock. It rides on a Bob Drake custom frame with chrome-plated Heidt's double A-arm front suspension. A novel torsion bar-type front sway bar is linked to each lower control arm via one-off machined steel arms. Boyd likely planned for air front suspension, though rigid steel spacers are in place for construction. Large diameter Wilwood disc brakes are in place at all four corners and a dual-reservoir master cylinder is mounted to the frame, below the driver seat. The front steering is unique, consisting of a Coleman RP125 rack, Sweet Mfg. power ram and compact aluminum Gemmer-style box. The entire interior tub is empty though the all-important folding top roof bows and hinges are in position and appear to be complete. No engine or transmission is present, and this car is currently a rolling shell. But it represents a perfect "blank slate" for a capable customizer to build on.
