Toppers Tuesday

My number one son’s wedding is over and he is happy with his new bride. Palm Springs was wonderful and cars were everywhere. Saturday morning there was a Cobra Club meeting in Palm Desert and 20 or so Cobra’s were available for viewing. I only saw two hot rods, a red 40 coupe and a slick 36 Woody. I hope to get back to normal this week and will be working on the roadster.

LA is very cold for this time of year and I hope it warms up soon. Palm Springs was very warm and I can see why old people like the area. In a couple of months it will be too hot to live there, so Simi Valley will do for now.

Today,we will look at some 40 Ford sedan delivery’s that have come up for sale or just sold as well as some other favorites.

Stay Tooned.



Local car that had a very bad accident, but driver was O.K. Jalopy Journal photo.


41 delivery on ebay for sale in Oregon. Lots of work, but solid.


Perfect rear door from same car.


40 delivery in Ohio…more work than you can afford.


Lou’s very nice 41 awaiting delivery to Santa Barbara…Glen has another one.


Lou’s delivery back home in Santa Barbara. No more snow for this one. Lee built this one in 1970’s and was on the car of Hot Rod in 1975.


Nice QC in Poteet’s new coupe by Rolling Bones. I love this look!



Cloud Mist Gray Sedan. This color is the best on a 40….too many black ones.

  1. I wanted to put you the tiny remark to be able to say thanks a lot over again on the pleasing strategies you have provided in this case. It was really shockingly open-handed with you to make publicly precisely what many of us would’ve offered for an ebook to get some money for themselves, notably now that you might have tried it in case you desired. Those suggestions in addition worked to become good way to realize that some people have the identical keenness similar to my personal own to realize significantly more when it comes to this matter. I believe there are several more pleasant sessions up front for people who scan your site.

  2. Lynn,

    Your web site was forwarded to me by Lou Wells in Idaho (he bought a pair of ’40 bumpers from me a few mos. ago). I would appreciated being added to your e-mail list.

    I’m an old time hot rodder having built my first car (’40 Ford Standard Opera Coupe with a built flathead) at the age of 16 in 1959 and I’m still at it.

    Maybe I can submit some interesting pictures and stories spanning the past 50 years if you are interested?

    I know of a very nice ’40 Ford 2 door sedan that is currently for sale…..a lot of work has been done and it hasn’t been advertised yet. He has a ’49 flathead that goes with it. (It belongs to an on-line car guy friend.)

    Sincerely, Ted DeBusman
