1940 Ford Business Coupe V8
Posted by Lovefordgalaxie on Thursday, January 11, 2018 3:52 PM

My first build of the year, is a double build. 

Back in December, my cousin Marcelo asked me to build a '40 Ford for him. He took a look at the three available colors, and chose Lyon Blue, with extra cost color matching wheels, and wide whitewall tires. 

I had the color mixed, and when I got it on hand, found it to be so handsome, I had to build one for myself. 

So, I built two cars, that save for the licence plates, are 100% alike... Kind of a cool experience. 

This one on the pictures is mine. My cousin's is just the same, so, I saw no purpose in picturing both. 

The kit was built almost out of the box, only with the addition of fender welting and the necessary modification on the front axle, by shaving 3mm out. That avoids the front tires to touch the inside of the front fenders, and makes the completed car to look more like a real Ford. 

First a few pictures of the build:

I managed to zoom in on the detailing - saying to myself " Even the radiator hose clamps are perfect " this is beautifully done !

Yup. I noticed those hose clamps too. Where are they from. I assume they are aftermarket. And I can see why you stuck with that blue. Its very rich looking. Nicely done 

Feelings are like scents: The more they are analyzed, the worse they smell.

Beautiful 40! I can see why the colour inspired you to build a second one. The under hood detailing is excellent, and really puts one in mind of a period engine bay. All round great work.

Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

I love the contrast of the interior. It really sets the car off and makes it "POP" Thumbs Up.

VERY, VERY NICE!!

The hose clamps are actually just paint. The clamps are molded on the hoses.

Another well crafted quality Factory Stock build . You don't disappoint through your efforts of reproduction in scale . "Where's the keys ?" I want to thrash the V/8 60 like I stole it .. Thanx ..
