40 Ford coupe rebuild

Recommended Posts

Here are the finished pics of the 40 Ford coupe rebuild.  I really enjoyed rebuilding this car that I built back in the early 60's and almost ruined it.  I had to make the rear windows, the drip rails and the chrome trim, plus a lot of repairs.

CAN THE ADMINS PLEASE MOVE THIS TO THE UNDER GLASS SECTION?  I posted it in the wrong place.  Thank you.

Took me a bit to find it, but well worth it.  Love how this turned out.

Sorry Sam, I posted this in the wrong place by mistake and asked the admins to post it in the right place.  I would but it won't let me change.  Thanks for the kind words.

Love it! Nice resto! It is cool that you kept the 60's raw hot rod feel! Looks really tough!

I enjoyed watching you restore this one. Turned out great. I'm glad you left the message that this was posted here as I might not have found it otherwise. Great looking color and finish.

Thanks guys.  This was one that I almost tossed out from the days that I built it but thought I might as well try and do something with it.

Thanks guys.  I almost tossed this car out, but, because I built it way back in the early 60's, I wanted to see if I could do something with it and keep it.  I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

Great recovery on that Dan. I really like the color for the '40 Ford. I always thought the '40 Ford and '40 Willys were the coolest looking cars of that era.

Thanks guys.  I also think that the 40 Ford and Willy's are great looking cars.  I'm glad that I was able to save this one.
