If you want to restore your old and rusty ‘40 Ford Coupe, it will be quite mind-boggling to find the body shell that uses high-quality components.

But, this one, in particular, uses original Ford tooling, whilst keeping original dimensions in mind.

The 1940 Ford Coupe steel body features modern automotive-grade steel that goes through high-tension stamping procedure.

Which is why the panels flaunt very strong finish. The original Ford body uses 18-gauge steel, whereas this replacement steel body uses 19-gauge thick steel.

Also, know that all of the inner bracing and sub rails are made from 16-gauge steel. As compared to original counterparts, here the spot welds are 20 to 25% more in strength. Indeed, this proves the quality of craftsmanship and expertise.

This 1940 Ford Coupe steel body comes with:

Stock Firewall Configuration

Top Skin

Rear body panel

Drip Rails

Quarter panels


The complete assembly process is carried out with the help of precise fixtures. And that’s why the doors and deck lid are first accurately assembled.

Then, later on, the final fit of tail pan and rear quarter panels happens. Dennis Carpenter has been producing high-quality Ford replacement parts for more than 46 years now.
