It is raining today and I got a little board, so I thought I would post a few cars that were finished a few years ago. There are three 1940 Fords here. The convertible is the most heavily modified of the three. I added "fadeaway" fenders that run from the front fender all the way back to the rear. I made rear fender skirts and art deco trim molding, and dropped in an interior from a Mitso. Stealth. I know the "dice" are a little out of scale, but I like them. I used a Ford Flathead for the correct style of power. HOK Kandy Blue over silver and pearl white. The sedan has a mild chop, custom interior and a Hemi power plant. HOK Kandy green with silver/gold fenders. The coupe has a mild chop, flathead power, vinyl tape striping and Mopar Cranberry pearl over Silver/Gold fenders. I always liked the look of the 1940 Fords, in my eyes, they are a classic hod rod custom, next the 49 Merc and 32 Ford.

Nice triple threat!
I like all 3, but the deco Fadeaway really turns my crank. :D

Luv all three of them. Nice, clean builds. photo-etch grill on the sedan really sets it off.
