1940 Ford Coupe Deluxe (Bootlegger)

Last updated Mar 4, 2013  

Photo of a 1940 Ford Coupe Deluxe (Bootlegger)


I bought the Coupe outside Fayetteville NC in 1982. Its a true Southern 40 Ford. Thus, the name Bootlegger. I kept the car 24 years until I retired from the Marine Corps. Only then, could I pursue my dream build.


The car is a prostreet ready for street or strip. It is all steal and complete tube chassis. Intent is a 1000 hp streetable BBF with a roots type blower and injection.
