1940 Ford Deluxe Convertible
Garnet maroon- correct leather interior-black top- NC car with original metal.
Restored to Dearborn specifications. Original flat head V8. Absolutely perfect

affordable to everyone and his styling was unmatched during the 1932-1940
period. Chevy did not produce a V8 until 1955. This made the early Ford V8s the
choice of most hot rodders during the 30s and 40s. (click on small pics to

1940 Ford Deluxe Coupe
Good original car with one repaint. One of the most solid 40s we have seen. It has all the
original body panels, flat head V8, and driveline. Won AACA national first prize junior
division 1993. Most early Ford V8s were rated at 85 H.P. They were not overly powerful
but pulled there weight very well. The sweetest part of the early V8s was to hear how
quiet they would run and how smooth they were. Nothing today is any better. By 1940,
Ford had produced over 6 million V8s since 1932. Ford made several improvements in
1940, including moving the shifter from the floor to the column, moving the wipers from
the top of the windshield to the bottom, adding a front sway bar, and adding sealed
beam headlamps. Ford offered six colors in 1940. This was five more than he offered in
the early days when he said you could have any color you want as long as it was black.
These coupes were around $800 new. (click on small pics to enlarge)
1931 Ford Model A pickup roadster. Restored original to show standards.
Original driveline. Deluxe model with cowl lites and dual spares. Ford produced
convertible pickups starting with the Model T and later the Model As. The last
year was 1934. Ford produced 17 million Model Ts from 1903 to 1927 and 5
million Model As from the end of 1927 to 1931, but very few roadster pickups
were produced. Ford offered about as many models back then as they do
now. The Model A modernized the automotive world with reliable
transportation for a affordable price. Most Model As had a price tag of
$400-650. This truck would have cost around $500 new. That would only buy
you a set of tires for it today. (click on small pics to enlarge)
1937 Ford Deluxe Station Wagon
Purchased from the original McQuay family in 2012. Pictured with the
original owner's son, Mr. McQuay, now 82 years old. McQuay drove
this woody to Harding High School in Charlotte, NC in 1947-1949.
Later in life, McQuay worked at Duke University in Durham, NC. This
woody has been in his garage since 1963 and has not been driven.
We plan to leave this car in this original "barn-find" condition.
