1934 FORD MODEL 40, Travelers through Michigan in 1934 could almost hear the sigh of relief New Styling and New Engine Equals Sales and Profits and you could almost hear the sigh of relief coming from Ford's Dearborn offices. After 3 years of losing money and the #1 sales position to Chevrolet, Ford was able to both make a profit and regain the #1 sales position in 1934. With a new version of the V-8 engine, increasing horsepower to 85, new Stromberg carburetors and A.C. air cleaners, and new sporty styling including body colored fenders, Ford once again had the look and feel of a winner. The president of Ford was Edsel Ford. In April 1934, Clyde Barrow wrote his famous (infamous?) letter to Henry Ford in which he told Ford "what a dandy car you made". Professional restored in the early 90's. This Ford was on display at the Yankee Candle Car Museum. It has only 29,000 original miles. Shown by appointment only. Classic Insurance: 380/yr.
