Current Auction: SUN VALLEY AUCTION 2017 on September 2nd, 2017
This is a total frame off restoration. It’s all stock except it
now has a 12 volt alternator electronic ignition, electric wipers ( who’s taking it out in the rain anyway?) and an
electric cooling fan. $58,000 spent on the restoration. We got a lot of receipts with it. Looks like 5 years in the
restoration from 2010 to 2015. Beautiful maroon paint with black Hartz cloth top. Tan leather interior. It runs and
drives very well. I look forward to driving it more. Joe, at Old School Garage, did the service and safety check.
You always find things that need to be finished. The vacuum top was not functioning and Joe discovered the vacuum
rams leaked. No one rebuilds them so Rich’s Custom Upholstery installed a new hydraulic ram kit and a new
top boot. The speedometer did not function properly so Joe got it rebuilt. Now you can drive with confidence and
you will be looking good. The tires were old with no miles but they showed some cracking in the white walls, so
we installed new radial wide whites. It is too nice not to. What’s not to like about a 1940 Ford Deluxe Convertible?
One stunning car.
