Description
Lot #488 - Few cars in America captured the passion of the 40s like the '40 Ford Coupe. This Opera Coupe has had a total frame-off restoration and is in showroom condition. The engine is new and has been driven approximately 400 miles. Everything works, including the Columbia rear end, the radio and the heater. No expense was spared to put this car in First Class condition in every way. It has new radial tires, which gives the car a beautiful ride. The total production of this car was 541,896 and it proved to be a dream come true for thousands of new car owners during the war era. The flowing design from the pointed hood, and down to the flashy ribbed grill then back over the slightly slanted windshield made for the unmistakable design of the '40 Ford Coupe. The headlamps were sealed-beam for the first time and blended into the fender as one continuous accent piece topped off with the parking lights. The taillights of the '40 Ford are recognized the world over as unique and a perfect fit. The idea of owning this vehicle for a mere $722.00 dollars was a testimony to the value placed on this icon of automobile history. Dave Yancey of Gold River, California bought this vehicle from an elderly gentleman in the Bay.
