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 and Gil Lopez Wiring. 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 and body.
If you have ever wanted a true, world class, fully documented street rod, now is the time. This is an excellent opportunity to own an absolutely phenomenal street rod that will attract attention, and awards everywhere it is shown. This is an extremely high quality street rod! Think of the countless hours that have gone into this car to achieve this heightened level of perfection.
This car was the start that led Dominator Street Rods into the future of award winning and functional automobiles.Duplicating this car today would cost somewhere in the $500,000 price range.
