Off with its flat-head: ’40 Ford Deluxe Tudor
The 1937 Ford featured a more rounded look with fine horizontal bars in the convex front and hood-side grilles. The front grille was V-shaped, rather than following the fenders into a pentagon shape. Faired-in headlights were a major modernization found on both the Standard and DeLuxe trim versions, though much of the rest of the design was shared between Ford’s two lines. The 1940 model year was the last year for this design. An unmodified 1940 Ford Deluxe Tudor sedan is hard to find but it is even harder to find one unrestored and in original condition. This 40 Ford Deluxe Tudor still has it’s original flathead V8, 3 speed manual transmission, chassis, rear end, interior, glass and mostly original paint. The seller is the 3rd owner and states the car starts, runs and drives like new. It is a documented historical preservation auto with the AACA, as well as a Dearborn award winner for the early Ford V8 club. You have to appreciate this car for its condition and it would make a Ford collector or museum very happy indeed. You can see many more pictures on the eBay auction by clicking here.
