Description

AUTOCHOICE presents an extremely rare, 1940 Ford 4dr De Luxe sedan. As the photos point out, this 1940 project is well on its way to be restored the way the new owner wants it to be. There will be some items that will be needed, for example, transmission, auto or manual and interior. Pay close attention to the grille and the engine. Both rebuilt to specs. The engine is a Chevrolet 350 with Holly carbs. The owner is just getting too old to continue on his dream and hoping it will go to a good family. The buyer will be responsible for shipping all and having a person hired to grate the engine for transport as will as all the loose parts pictured. Your welcome to call Don at (509) 301-1498 with your questions.

This is what the car will look like when complete;

Chronology
SuccessorNone (from 1941 the Ford Deluxe reverted to trim-level status)

Ford Motor Company introduced its De Luxe Ford line in 1938 as an upscale alternative to bridge the gap between its base model (usually called Standard)[3] and luxury Lincoln offerings. The "Deluxe" name was used intermittently before and after this to specify an upscale trim, but the De Luxe Ford line was differentiated as a separate "marque within a marque" with separate styling and pricing through 1940. During 1939, Ford had five lines of cars: Ford, De Luxe Ford, Mercury, Lincoln-Zephyr, and Lincoln. After the war, this was simplified to Ford, Mercury, and Lincoln. The 1941 Ford line included "De Luxe" and "Super De Luxe" trim, but these vehicles were not marketed as a separate line. As Mercury sales progressed, the De Luxe approach was cancelled.

This marketing approach was in response from the different General Motors brands, (Cadillac, Buick, Oldsmobile, Pontiac, and Chevrolet), and the Chrysler brands, (Chrysler, DeSoto, Dodge, and Plymouth).

The De Luxe Fords of 1938 featured a more sloping hood and ornamental heart-shaped grille. This look was passed on to the standard line for 1939, as the De Luxe Fords gained sharp v-shaped grilles with vertical bars. The standard line once again inherited the De Luxe look for 1940, this time with body-colored vertical bars. The 1940 De Luxe Ford featured a three-part grille with horizontal bars.

In popular culture

A 1948 Ford Deluxe convertible was the base car that was transformed into "Greased Lightning" in the movie Grease.[4]
