I built this 1940 Ford Coupe for my local Fedex driver. He is going to give it to his father in law who is turning 85 this month & who is in the process of building a 1:1 40 Ford coupe. Paint is the exact color he is using...2011 Honda Pewter grey & the rims are what he has for his Ford. Hope you enjoy.

Looks great Ron! B)

You'd better get free shipping on packages for quite some time as repayment for that build! :o

Man, that paint is smooth as glass! And the open vent window is a real nice touch. B)

Thanks everyone for the great comments. I kinda hate to let this one go...but I think it will be appreciated in it's new home. Guess I'll have to do one for myself.

That's looks great! I'd have built two- one for the commission, and an identical one for me.

It's funny you say that. Ford has commisioned a company to produce the 1940 Ford coupe, to exact spec's with upgraded drive train ( is the new 500 bwhp 5.0 litre good enough?) And obviously 4 wheel disc brakes, and all sorts of New age hi technology, no flatheads for this one, unless you want one. I think Dynacorn(?) is builing them for Ford. They are the same company making the first gen Camaro and Challengers. Check out the link here...

Beautiful build by the way, looks just as good, if not better than my Danbury Mint '39.

Gotta love someone who is turning 85 & who is in the process of building.
