The 1940 Ford Coupe has had a huge influence on post WW2 America with bootleggers who established the beginnings of stock car racing and then the WW2 veterans, who bought these and started turning them into hot rods. Ford Restoration Parts which was given an affectionate bear hug by all the muscle car enthusiasts for making available the 1965-70 Mustang bodies, will now get more love by making available the body shell of the 1940 Ford Coupe.
The bodyshell is constructed with modern, high-strength steel and is assembled using modern welding techniques. The new body comes rustproofed from the factory. You can order the body shell with the stock firewall that accommodates the original flathead V8 or order one with a recessed firewall that will allow newer engines to be installed for more performance.
Ford also supports the 1940 Ford with an array of correct mechanical and trim restoration parts.
Edsel Ford himself is said to have had a great influence on the design of the Ford Coupe. This car was also one of the first streamlined cars from the Ford Motor Company.
