  1. Letting my baby go:

    1940 Model 41 4dr sedan

    Excellent, solid-largely original-car. Shows 70,5xx miles. I believe this is the odometer's first time around. The radiator and the exhaust (stainless) are new. The carb, wiper motor, generator and radio have been professionally rebuilt. What it needs depends on you. The paint is checked in spots but shines well. Ditto the chrome. There is a crease across the top of the LF fender where something fell on it years ago. Interior had dealer installed slip covers until just before I bought it and the seats are in super condition. Documentation back to the original owner goes with the car. I plan on listing this on E-Bay next week. Asking $9,000. New toys beckon. esheehy@comcast.net




  2. You had to go and profile my favorite-the 1960 models. I have loved them for as long as I can recall. A neighbor had one that she bought new. It got sold when she died. Unfortunately, I had no $ at the time. Now you've gone and got me thinking of selling my 40 and finding a 60. Can't you leave well enough alone? wink.gif (I never can!)


  3. No repros are out there except occasionally they show up on ebay. I bought some for a 40's chevy pickup after my originals crumbled into uselessness. They are almost the right shade and look period correct.

    I'll try to dig up the source for them and post a picture.


  4. Well, both the steering column jacket and gearshift rod are different part numbers. Of course that doesn't mean that one won't fit the other but it does make it less likely. Keep in mind that the 40 Special was the end of a particular body run of several years while the Super was in the second year of a new body.
