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.
