Was a really nice old car at one point.
Y block to stock trans/rearend.yellow/white upholstery.
The current owner bought it in 1960 and did the work then.
The car has been in outside storage for about 35 yearsand in the current spot for 22.
Still a nice car but imagine what it would look like if it had been stored inside.
The owner and I are a bit apart on what we think it is worth.

These people are idiots for leaving a good car like this outside for the last 20 plus years and thinking its worth as much as one that would have been left indoors for the last 20 plus years!

The outside looks nice.  I don't have to tell you that the floor is critical on a '40 though.  What's in the glove box, a radio ?

55-6 ford radio.
Also the front floor back to the seat is aluminum so I assume the original was rusty.
Couldn,t get my fat head under the car to see.
Needs a rear pan and has some shitty welding on the lower hinges to the door skins.
Did you notice the 49 ford inner door handles?

I saw that they weren't stock, but I didn't know what they were from.  I also didn't know that '49 door handles were sought after items, but can see why now.  They look good.

Too bad it wasn't stored inside for those last 22 years; the interior would be in a lot better shape.  Will the Y-block turn over ?
