Description

Lot #710 - This genuine '40 Ford coupe is a vintage Hot Rod built in the 1980s with an awesome old school look and retaining almost all of its original steel body panels. It was found in a shed in Volcano, CA. after being in storage for over a decade, and has been resurrected to once again pound the pavement and raise a little hell. Under the hood is a built Mopar 440 big block backed by a heavy duty 727 TorqueFlite transmission driving a 9" rear end. The suspension is completely custom featuring a Mustang II independent front end with rack & pinion steering and disc brakes, plus a custom 4-link rear suspension, coilover shocks all the way around and the rear end is tubbed to fit gigantic drag racing deep dish wheels wearing 15" wide Mickey Thompson tires. Other high performance features include an Edelbrock intake and 750cfm carburetor, ceramic coated Hedman headers, 3" side exiting Flowmaster exhaust system, aluminum high capacity radiator with electric fan, and a safety fuel cell. It's easy to see why '40 Ford coupes have long been at the top of Hot Rodder's lists, and this car is old school deluxe is of the coolest around.
