Doing up the 1940 Ford’s in Palm Beach Customs’ Classic Car Shop in Florida


The ’40 Ford is one of the most iconic classic vehicle introduced during its period. It included a V8 engine and stylish appeal that made it a hot-rod for the every rodder.



There were few major updates in the 1940 model. With slightly smaller V8 engine, straight-six engine and sealed-beam headlight this model was one of the most advanced model. The high flat-topped hood dominated the front look of the ’40 model, inheriting the 1939 model, while a hydraulic top was new on the convertible.

The body of the ’40 Ford model was available in two door couple, convertible and two or four door sedan, station wagon. With a wheel base of 2,845mm and whooping 136 CID (2.2 L) or 221CID (3.6L) powertrain this modernized model was one to hold the class during this period.



The drivers used the Fords of this generation in namely among the stock car racing providing the foundation of the dirt track racing style.
