Of all the early Ford V8s from 1932 through 1948, the 1940 model year must rank at or near the top among hot rodders and restorers—next to the inaugural year of 1932, of course. Somehow Henry got everything right that year. We’ve featured the ’40 previously here at Mac’s Motor City Garage. For example, check out this excellent three-minute Ford film, Video: Presenting the Ford Line for 1940 from January of 2017. Now we’ve got an even better 10-minute dealer training film that covers the ’40 in greater detail.
When you’re done watching this original sales training film for the stylish new 1940 Ford, you’ll be ready to hurry over to your local Ford dealer and buy one yourself.
