This Henry Ford all steel 1940 Ford 3 window
coupe has been custom built by the renowned builder
Leonard Lopez of Dominator Street Rods, in Tracy,
California. Using only the highest caliber of design
and after a year and a half of perfection, the 5-window
coupe was transformed, almost as if by magic
into a totally rodded and flowing 3-window coupe. Over
$50,000 in paint and body work alone.
Body modifications include the front windshield has
been laid back and the rear was laid forward and
the roof was sectioned to fit. The windshield opening
was reworked to retain stock height. The rear
windows were moved upward. The doors were custom
made 12″ longer with hidden hinges and also
made to open suicide style. The rear side windows
were removed. The hood and front fenders have
been rotated down 1.5″ downward. All wheel wells
were reradiussed. The running boards were custom
built with side exit exhausts. The dash was custom
built with a flowing console.
The engine compartment is as detailed as the rest of the car
with custom paint and lots of chrome on the
Ford Modular 4.6 (281 CID) V8 engine. The car
features a Ford AODE transmission, Vintage Air
Conditioning, 9″ Ford Currie Axles, 4 Wheel Disc
Brakes, qa1Coilover Shocks, Gil Lopez Wiring,
Killer CD sound system and power everything. All new frame rails and cross members were used to
build the chassis, a Dominator built IFS system
with inboard coil over shocks, a rear four bar setup with
coil overs and a 9″ Ford rear end.
Paint by Mickey Galloway and Art Himsl. This custom
3 window has won too many awards to count and has
even been featured on the front cover of
Street Rodder Magazine and was also driven twice on
the Americruise. The paint on the converted
3 window is one of the best works on the market today.
You could sit and stare at this car for hours
and not even begin to notice the extreme detail and
color design. The multi colored graphics that
flow throughout the car fade into one color, and then
into another, and then another, etc. Everything
is Dupont from the Undercoating, clear coating, stripes
If you have ever wanted a true,
world class, fully documented street rod, now is the

absolutely phenomenal street rod that will attract

This is an extremely high quality street rod! Think of

into the future of award winning and functional
automobiles.Duplicating this car today would cost
somewhere in the $500,000 price range.
