The 1940 Ford Coupe has always been a popular car for restoration projects, ever since World War II veterans began turning them into hot rods by adding performance equipment to the car’s flathead V8 engine.
But you no longer have to poke around in junkyards or barns looking for an original to work on. Now you can buy a brand new 1940 Coupe body directly from Ford!
The 1940 Ford Coupe body is produced with today’s high-strength steel, and is assembled using modern welding techniques. The new body comes rustproofed from the factory and is ready to be assembled as a custom hot rod or as a reproduction to the original.
You can choose a stock firewall that accommodates the original flathead V8, but it can also be ordered with a recessed firewall to allow installation of much larger modern engines. Ford also supports it with a variety of model-correct mechanical and trim restoration parts; to see what’s available for the 1940, click here.
