This is a first class hot rod. All steel genuine 1940 Ford. Meticulous body off the frame restoration. It has a timeless look that won't go out of style.

Even the window frames and vent window frame look new. It has all new smoked glass including the windshield. All the weather strips and seals were replaced. New ribbed rubber running board covers.

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
