There has been a been investment in style, comfort, and V8 power in this 1940 Ford Business Coupe turned Streetrod to create an all-around awesome build.
So look over every inch – from the A/C interior to the custom undercarriage – to discover a truly stunning machine wrapped in Henry Ford steel.
We love these business coupes because they give us the classic look of a sharply pointed front end, running boards, and the long trunk large enough for the full salesman’s kit. But while this one is vintage, right down to the gleaming brightwork package, there’s also something much more. The white paint glows from a high-quality investment. It means this car radiates the moment you take it out in the sunlight, and it also makes for a great backdrop for the custom stripe package. The purple and turquoise run the full-length of this long business coupe with the kind of vibrant style that announces this is a true street machine. There are even more great details, like the Bugs Bunny custom graphic on the rear, hint of turquoise on the wheels, and those extra meaty rear tires.
Open the doors to reveal a full custom presentation. The exterior white returns, and joined by tan accents for a tasteful two-tone. In fact, the colors are so thoughtfully intertwined that you see cool details, like how the white is used for piping on the tan carpeting. There are even ostrich-style inserts on the seats and doors. You have all the best amenities like power windows, cup holders, an AM/FM/HD/CD stereo with iPod connectivity, and R134a air conditioning. And those dual bucket seats were borrowed from a Mercedes. So they feel great and power adjust to your ideal position. More than just look amazing, this is a full driver’s machine with a leather and chrome sports steering wheel, a tilt column, and a full set of gauges dominating the dash.
The engine bay has been done to a show-worthy standard. Ultra-smooth inner walls funnel your attention to the V8 in the middle. And this motor is nicely dressed with plenty of polished components, ribbed valve covers, and a coordinating classic air grabber. This 350 cubic-inch crate V8 inhales deeply through a Holley four-barrel carburetor and upgraded intake. It exhales with a sweet sound from the dual exhaust featuring Flowmaster mufflers and wide Pypes tips. There are also the right supporting components, like a new alternator and a large aluminum radiator w/electric fan. This is a strong-running package, and the consignor even loves to talk about taking this to cars shows in neighboring states. That’s because this is a solid build that is based off a full Fat Man Fabrication chassis with upgrades like a Mustang II-style front suspension, a three-speed automatic transmission, and power brakes with front discs.
