Erik Lindstrom's 1940 Ford

I purchased this ‘40 Ford Deluxe Business Coupe in 1978. This car was a basket case!

We brought it home in a trailer and two pick up trucks, all in parts. I then took the body off the frame and purchased a new frame from Chassis Engineering.

I built a stroker small block 383 and replaced the turbo 350 with a 700R4 transmission. I drove the car since 1991, with seats and thin plywood on the door panels! Eventually, I had the interior done in 1993 and recently put fender well headers and new exhaust.

I did all the work myself, except for the paint. I love driving it and it will stay with me forever.
