1940 Ford Deluxe Woody Wagon
Based on the Art Deco cues first found on the upscale Lincoln Zephyr, the front styling of the 1940 Ford has always been considered special. In addition, the 1940 Deluxe Ford featured a three-part grille with horizontal bars to distinguish it from the standard models. Couple that to a wood-sided station-wagon body design, and the result is both attractive and desirable like the car offered here. Indeed, whether in stock or modified form, these are popular cars, and this one has benefited from modernizing for additional power and appeal. Nonetheless, the original exterior appearance was painstakingly maintained, allowing this car to seem almost stock at first glance. The project began around the 1940 Ford chassis and an all-steel body shell. For power, the engine selected was a 350 CI V-8 backed by an automatic transmission, which allowed the original column-shift mechanism to be employed. Later Ford technology supplied the modernized suspension pieces in the way of a Mustang II front end and sturdy 9-inch Ford differential. The body features light salmon paint with a darker-toned top and wooden doors and rear paneling, with the body-color fenders creating a subdued sense of purposeful elegance. Inside is a new Ron Magnus interior, in the same earth tones as the outside. Wood paneling, insulation, carpet and leather abound, with the bench seats in a tasteful light chocolate. The steering wheel is the classic Ford V-8 design, mounted on an aftermarket column. The factory gauges remain in their bezels, and an accessory clock is in front of the passenger seat. A custom sound system by Stereo Bob in Rialto, California, completes much of the interior. Subtle steel wheels painted in body color feature trim rings and round center caps, and they are augmented by wide whitewall tires. Beautiful from every angle, this 1940 woody wagon combines wonderful appearance with enjoyable upgrades.
