Gateway Classic Cars of Chicago is excited to offer this very unique 1940 Ford Super Deluxe Flower Car once again. If you're scratching your head thinking "I've never seen one of those before!" It's probably because you most likely have not. This 1940 Ford Deluxe was produced by the Ford Motor Company and then converted by The Eureka Manufacturing Company of Rock Falls Illinois into a flower car.

Essentially starting out as a 5-window coupe, the conversion lengthened the chassis and the convertible rear casket compartment was created with metal rollers and pins to store the side rails that would hold flowers in place. This car had a dual use of being enclosed with the original canvas cover for the less elaborate funerals and having the rear compartment cover removed and side rails installed for a more elaborate send off.

Flower cars were popular during the middle of the century and now are rarely seen in modern funerals. While most if not all of these conversions done by Eureka were on General Motors vehicles this one being a Ford and not a Packard or Cadillac makes this highly obscure and is believed to be the only one ever made. This car was purchased new in 1940 and check out the original photos of the car being delivered. Now fast forward 78 years and you will notice that not much has really changed. This is an original, unmolested, unrestored car that still retains the original paint, original canvas cover, original interior and powertrain.

Now is your chance to own something that nobody else has and enter the world of Professional Car Collectors. Surely this will be the only one at whatever show you attend and thanks to years of maintenance and recent service work performed this car is ready for the road and will cruise at highway speeds. New parts include brake shoes, wheel and master cylinders, brake hoses, rear axle seals, new points set, fuel tank, fuel pump and carburetor overhaul.

Located in our Chicago showroom, this 1940 Ford Deluxe Flower Car can be seen including an HD video and pictures at www.gatewayclassiccars.com. For additional information please call (708) 444-4488 or email chicago@gatewayclassiccars.com.

1939 Ford Coupe


Engine: 350 CID V8
Transmission: 3-Speed Automatic
Mileage: 6238 ( since rebuilt )

Gateway Classic Cars of Nashville is proud to present this Kustom 1939 Ford Coupe. Yes… that’s custom with a K, and I’ll tell you why. In the 1960’s car customizers were going to greater lengths than ever before to differentiate their builds from those of their contemporaries. One person that became a household name was know for his over the top builds, and that man was George Barris. Barris was pioneer in custom car design and fabrication along with other greats like Norm Grabowski, Bill Hinds, and Gene Winfield. George Barris and his brother started the “Kustoms Car Club of LA” in the mid 50’s, some suspect Von Dutch’s misspelling on a sign, likely intentional, to be the reason for the K in the club name. Kustoms of this era can be broken down into two categories Mild and Full Kustom. This 1939 Ford Coupe for sale is a great example of a modern Mild Kustom. The original beauty of the car’s lines has been retained however custom headlight and tail light treatments have been used, the interior is covered in leather like pleat and roll vinyl as are the running boards on the exterior, the floors covered in a gold medium pile carpet, and gold flake zodiac vinyl piping has been added to tie the interior to the stunning gold flake paint job on the outside. This gold flaked kustom has won the best flake award the Billetproof car show and it is no wonder why… it’s a flake lovers dream and looks like something straight from a 1960’s Autorama winner’s circle. Powering this 1939 Ford Coupe is a small block chevy that has Cal Custom’s valve covers to continue the theme of a 1960’s build. There are obviously a few departures from the old school here, the major two for most people being the installation of air conditioning and a modern sound system. Safety belts have also been added along with power steering and brakes to make this Kustom as safe as it is kool. If you’re ready to go back to the 60s or just want a little more information, please give us a call in the Nashville Showroom at 615.213.1800 or you can visit us online at www.GatewayClassicCars.com

Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is proud to present this 1929 Ford Coupe. Do you want to be ordinary or extraordinary? If your answer is extraordinary, then you have chosen the right “Hot Rod.” When you think of a “Hot Rod” or “Muscle Car”, the first cars that come to mind are Camaro’s, Mustang’s, Cuda’s, etc. This is none of the above and yet, it’s still one super cool “Hot Rod.” It is a tie for first place when it comes to what catches your attention initially, but one thing is for certain and two things are for sure, your answer will either be the bright yellow paint, or the sound of the mean 383 stroker motor. Whichever one you choose, you won’t be wrong. The yellow paint is bright enough to make you feel like your looking at the sun, which is offset by a beautiful strategically placed flat back hood and black capped roof. The real show stopper of the exterior is the exposed chromed-out engine displaying chrome long tube headers. Just when you thought you thought you had the color combination figured out, another twist appears. Take a look inside and you will find burgundy bucket seats. Talk about extraordinary! Don’t worry about being squished in this coupe either, there’s plenty of room to fit four comfortably. Three’s company, four is a crowd, so load up your friends and family and enjoy cruising this “Sweet” ride.
