Ford Pre 1950 STD Opera Coupe, Black, for sale in Volo, Illinois, for $39,900.
Styling by Eugene Gregorie was considered very handsome and well received for the 1940 Fords. It's a timeless design with equipment and options that include the variable Flathead Ford v8 engine, 3 speed column shift, front and rear bumper guards, wide whitewall tires, chrome caps and trim rings, fender skirts and dual exhaust.
These cars were a favorite in the whiskey world for running "white lighting"in there silightly modified Fords. They were a car of choice for "rum runners"in the prohibition days. Besides being very fast they were custom fitted with false fuel links, subfloors and false backseats. This beautiful coupe enjoyed a recent body up restoration. Powered by the upgrade 59ab Ford Flathead 100 horsepower engine with less than 100 miles since complete rebuild.
The laser straight mirror finish body has the grey ribcord interior. Excellent chrome, and undercarriage looks new. A wonderful tight and fast driving coupe that will make an excellent addition to the Ford collector.
