1940 Ford Standard Business Coupe.
Posted by Lovefordgalaxie on Thursday, November 23, 2017 2:16 PM

The 1940 Ford Standard was only available in Black, Lyon Blue, and Cloudmist Gray. All colors could have the wheels painted in any color as long as it was black, or if one wanted to spend more asking for the extra cost color matching wheels. 

So, I was "forced" (haha) to paint my car black, so the wheels would match the body. 

My original intent was to delete the wide whitewalls, as few Deluxe cars had them, and they were almost non existent on Standard cars (you had to pull more cash from your pocket, and adding those things turned the Standard into a less attractive deal), but I like whitewalls enough to have paid for them, so whitewalls she has. 

Didn't care for the mirrors Monogram included with the kit, so I left they out. 

The car was painted with automotive grade enamel, and all detail paint was done with Acrilex acrylics. Foil is home made. 

It's a box stock build with the exception of a chrome exhaust tip, and welting on the fenders. Front and rear.

The kit has a few problems, like the Deluxe Convertible upholstery pattern on the seat and interior sides, plus the Deluxe dash decal instead of the correct Standard decal. 

Fixed the decal, left the interior the way it came. Was not in the mood to sand it all, and make it correct. Maybe the next one.  

Hope you guys like her.

I really like your build, she looks period perfect.  What paint and colour is the interior?  It looks like it would complement a lot of different exterior colours.  Cheers, and thanx.

Beautiful as usual. Am I correct that a buisness coupe has no rear seat? Is that what AMT's Deluxe kit represents? It has no back seat.

No Ford Coupe had a rear seat untill the 1941 model year, when Ford lauched the Sedan Coupe. The Sedan Coupe is the body style used by Revell on their 1948 Ford Police Coupe kit. 

The Business Coupe has two small fold away seats on the back. The AMT kit represents them on folded position, molded on the interior tub. The Revell Monogram kit has separate parts for them.

Another one you knocked out of the Ballpark . What a beauty . The White Walls are not such a bad choice . With the enevetible entry of the USA in the "European Conflict" looming on the Horizon during the '40 MY run money spent was considered carefully . The White Walls represented the Premium Tires . The Best money could buy , Not the prettiest tires . "Where's the keys ?"  I like the background too .  Thanx ..
