Deluxe Model 40
Ford introduced the famed flathead V8 engine with the 1932 Model Year, as the Model 18. The Ford flathead would become famous. The model 18 was built that first year only. Ford chose to go with a completely new body for 1933, the model 40, while retaining the 221 cu in Flathead V8 and Three Speed Manual Transmission. Horsepower grew to 75 in 1933.
The new Ford was decidedly more streamlined and modern. The wheelbase of the new heavier duty car became 106 inches. The phaeton offered the comfort of four doors and open air motoring of an convertible without roll-up windows. The model 40 continued into the 1934 model year with minimal changes, including a heavier grill, 4 hood handles and other details.
The 1933 Ford Deluxe model 40 V8 Phaeton, being offered enjoyed a full frame up restoration in the Noel Biery Ford Collection, of Beecher, Illinois. The Biery collection was well known for top quality 1932-34 Fords. Mr. Biery was known to use new old stock and genuine Ford parts in his restorations. This phaeton sports all four new old stock fenders as well as many other Genuine Ford parts. The car most recently resides in the Gary N. Brown Collection, of upstate New York. It is finished in Vineyard Green with Tacoma cream pin striping and wheels, accented by authentic black wall tires. The interior is light green vinyl. The convertible top features a tan Haartz cloth top and boot. The quality of this car is truly impeccable, with the final restoration details only completed just in time to be offered at the Saratoga Auto Auction. Exquisitely restored totally unmodified examples of a 1933 Ford model 40 Phaetons seldom come to market. This is truly a rare opportunity. This car is offered at “No Reserve” to the highest bidder.
