If you're a discerning enthusiast who's searching for a top notch classic
to show off at your next cruise night, we've got the car for you!
This awesome Ford coupe began life as an authentic 1940 Deluxe and, with
the help of a thorough frame-off restoration, has been transformed into one
smooth-driving show queen. The car's build began with a complete tear down
of every panel of its rock-solid fuselage. Once those sinuous panels had
been massaged to perfection, a glossy coat of Cloud Mist Gray was sprayed
on thick and clean. And today, this sizzling classic is a national trophy
winner that, despite being roughly 30 years out of its restoration, still
looks better than pretty much every car at any show its owner chooses to
As the company's final Henry Ford fueled innovation the Ford V8 remains a
durable, torque-rich powerplant whose solid engineering saw use well into
the 60s and established a reputation in the hot rodding community that is
still unmatched almost a century after its introduction. And in keeping
with tradition, this stellar Ford trophy winner is powered by a correct 221
cubic inch flathead V8 which makes roughly 90 horsepower thanks a
relatively tame 6.12 to 1 compression ratio. The antique engine has
undoubtedly been rebuilt and probably looks much better today than when it
originally growled off an assembly line. Aesthetically, the block, which
perches a familiar oiled air cleaner and a rare 2-barrel Ford carburetor
above correct cast iron heads, has been painted in a typical dark hue.
There are many accurate pieces like reproduction Ford hoses, an old school
six volt generator, a reproduction Ford belt and even Autolite spark plugs.
The addition of a modern pusher fan, which is hidden by a stainless cowl
cover, practically guarantees that the flathead's infamous overheating
issues have been completely resolved. And overall, this coupe's clean
engine bay is a charming and 100% functional step back into a much simpler,
and some would say much better, period in American automotive history.
The car's clean floors are finished in a smooth layer of Cloud Mist Gray,
while its heavy duty frame and factory-accurate suspension components are
veiled in a subdued coat of Ford Satin Black. A correct 3-speed manual
transmission still lives behind the rock solid engine proving that 'simple
is good' by shifting beautifully and doing an excellent job of driving an
authentic, banjo-style rear end. In front of that transmission a beam axle
and transverse leaf spring remain, just as they would've looked back in
1940. And the same holds true behind the transmission, where a transverse
leaf spring and a second solid axle help maintain right height and perhaps
even add a little extra grip in the corners. Four wheel drum brakes,
hydraulically actuated for the 1938 model year, are a welcome addition and
a big performance upgrade for Ford fans. There's an impressive dual Exhaust system ran neatly along the frame
rails, apparently installed as if the car were new, giving the flathead V8
its traditional and unmistakable voice. And everything rides on a set of 15
inch painted steel wheels which spin fresh 6.50-15 BF Goodrich Silvertown
whitewalls around chrome trim rings and "FORD DELUXE" branded hub caps.
This coupe's warm and welcoming interior looks straight out of pre-war
America complete with simple fabrics, tasteful use of wood graining on the
doors, and awesome art deco gauges. Back in 1940, everything was pretty
much optional; and you'll surely find it cool that this Ford not only has a
primitive AM radio but also a small floor heater. At the front of the car,
all the Bakelite plastic knobs and handles remain in excellent condition,
there's a prerequisite clock on the passenger's side of the dash, and the
original "FORD DE LUXE" branded steering wheel is a work of automotive art.
And at the center of the car you'll find seats that have obviously been
reupholstered, but the work is appropriate to the vintage feel of the
Cool and classic, this '40 Ford is a vision in pre-war authenticity; and
every piece of the car is 100% show ready and in great condition. Call,

Ford Motor Company is an American automaker and the world's fifth largest
automaker based on worldwide vehicle sales. Based in Dearborn, Michigan, a
suburb of Detroit, the automaker was founded by Henry Ford, and
incorporated on June 16, 1903. Henry Ford was 40 years old when he founded
the Ford Motor Company, which would go on to become one of the largest and
most profitable companies in the world, as well as being one of the few to
survive the Great Depression. The largest family-controlled company in the
world, the Ford Motor Company has been in continuous family control for
over 100 years. Ford now encompasses several brands, including Lincoln and
The Ford line of cars was updated in 1937 with one major change — the
introduction of an entry-level 136 CID (2.2 L) V8 in addition to the
popular 221 CID (3.6 L) V8 unit. The model was a refresh of its
predecessor, itself based on Ford's V8-powered Model 40A and was the
company's main product. It was redesigned more thoroughly in 1941. The cost
was $850 ($13003 in today's dollars) in the beginning of production.
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, as on the 1936 model.
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. 'Slantback' sedans gained a rear trunk door,
though space was limited, and 'Trunkback' versions continued gaining
The Ford River Rouge Complex (commonly known as the Rouge Complex or just
The Rouge) is a Ford Motor Company automobile factory complex located in
Dearborn, Michigan, along the Rouge River, upstream from its confluence
with the Detroit River at Zug Island. Construction began in 1917, and when
it was completed in 1928 it had become the largest integrated factory in
The Rouge measures 1.5 miles (2.4 km) wide by 1 mile (1.6 km) long,
including 93 buildings with nearly 16 million square feet (1.5 km²) of
factory floor space. With its own docks in the dredged Rouge River, 100
miles (160 km) of interior railroad track, its own electricity plant, and
ore processing, the titanic Rouge was able to turn raw materials into
running vehicles within this single complex, a prime example of
vertical-integration production. Over 100,000 workers were employed there
in the 1930s.
Some of the Rouge buildings were designed by Albert Kahn. His Rouge glass
plant was regarded at the time as an exemplary and humane factory building,
with its ample natural light coming through windows in the ceiling. More
recently, several buildings have been converted to "green" structures with
a number of environmentally friendly features. However, many vehicular
skeletons remain buried on the grounds of the Rouge..
It was not until 1927 that automobile production began there, with the
introduction of the Ford Model A. Later Rouge products included the 1932
Model B, the original Mercury, the Ford Thunderbird, and four decades of
Ford Mustangs. The old
assembly plant was idled with the construction and launch of a new assembly
facility on the Miller Road side of the complex, currently producing Ford
F-150 and Lincoln Mark LT pickup trucks.
On May 26, 1937, a group of workers attempting to organize a union at the
Rouge were severely beaten, an event later called the Battle of the
Overpass. Peter E. Martin's respect for labor led to Walter Reuther, a UAW
leader, allowing Martin to be the only Ford manager to retrieve his papers
or gain access to the plant...
Holton Secret Lab www.holtonsecretlab.com Builds 1936 Ford Coupe Five Window Coupe
Build and restoration on the "36" was performed by Holton Secret Lab.
Fenders for this project were fabricated in house due to lack of
availability of after market parts on this year of Ford. While it had been
in storage for several years by the owner, there was quite a bit of rust.
This is the process of the build to completion. Ground up frame off
rotisserie restoration and build. Enjoy.
