Harry's Thoughts

This is a very nice example that is sure to help make its new caretaker many happy memories!

THE ESSENTIALS

This Club Coupe is a well-built example that draws attention wherever it appears!

All panels are original steel and the car was thoroughly restored over the past 15 years.

The 350 cu in V8 is a new crate engine with about 1,000 miles from new. It has about 290 HP and has Edelbrock intake and exhaust manifolds, HEI ignition. The engine delivers its power through a 700 R4 four speed automatic transmission. The Ford 8” rear end ratio is 2:8 and allows the fourth gear shift to occur at speeds of about 55 mph. This makes for fabulous third gear in-town or mountain driving and makes for terrific fuel economy and comfort at highway speeds.

The front end is a modern A arm coil Chevy suspension and features power disc brakes.

The Coupe is painted in the perfect shade of Porsche Red. The sexy curves that are unique to the 1940 Ford Club Coupe look fantastic in its red livery. The paint is in excellent condition without scratches or dents. The chrome and stainless are also in very good to excellent condition.
The car has been engineered to be enjoyed on long distance tours. The owner was an upholsterer years ago and developed the interior of the Coupe to be comfortable for long-distance and daily driving. We encourage you to look at the photo gallery and the YouTube video for more details. It is gorgeous!

The present owners of the Coupe, Howard and Jane, bought it in 2002 and have continually improved it and has enjoyed showing it at regional car shows. Howard built in all the convenience of a modern car. It has modern air conditioning, electric wipers, power steering, brakes, windows and full tilt wheel. The dash board looks very cool in silver with black faced Stewart Warner full instrumentation. The Coupe also has a newer Kenwood AM/FM/CD.

It has been a multiple award winner and is ready for its new owner to love and enjoy. For more information please call Harry Clark at 602.245.7200 or email us at harry@classicpromenade.com.

Interesting Fact: The Ford Custom was produced in three countries during 1949 to 1955, 1957 to 1959, and 1964 to 1981. It was featured in the famous film Psycho where it was removed from a swamp after being submerged.   As for the car itself, the Ford Custom was a part of the completely new redesigns that Ford released following World War II. Standard models of the Ford Custom used a small-block V8 engine that allowed for 351 horsepower, but law enforcement was able to use a more powerful V8 engine that allowed the Custom to utilize 425 horsepower. All in all, approximately 7,850,000 Fords were sold during the course of production which makes this the 10th best-selling automobile platform in history. The Ford Custom is an iconic and powerful car that has been trusted for many years. Its popular reputation and appearance in mainstream media still fuel its popularity today as one of the most desired cars for collectors!
