1940 Ford Opera Coupe Deluxe (JANS 40)

I traded for this car back in 1973/4 as a basket case. Got it running with a 260 ford,39 trans, and stock 40 rear that came with it. After a while I changed to a 302/c4/ 8in rear. then it was parked for about 20yrs while I played with other toys( 40 sedan, 30 Ford sport coupe). Started working on the coupe again about 6 yrs ago ... bodywork,paint and different drivetrain.With the help of my freinds Chuck and Carie and my late wife Jans support the car is on the road again. Still needs interior, AC, etc but its on the road and I drive it as much as I can.
