Details

Offered for sale at NO RESERVE from a large New England collection, this 1940 Ford Convertible is a personal favorite of the consignor and comes with a unique story. Purchased new in 1940, this vehicle remained in the original owner’s possession for the majority of its life. In its early years, this Ford caught the eye of a young neighborhood boy, who admired this car for decades into adulthood. When the time was right, the original owner sold it to the now-grown boy who had loved it for so long. The current owner, a good friend of the second owner, became the next to acquire this vehicle after the passing of his long time friend. Throughout its history, this vehicle has been admired, cared for, and passed along from friend to friend. This convertible is an original car that has undergone one repaint. Also, the top and interior were replaced. Sold with a bill of sale from the consignor’s purchase.

*Sale prices are inclusive of the buyers premium.
