For the 1940 model year, Ford introduced the Model 01A and 022A, featuring a stylish design by influential chief designer Eugene T. Gregorie. The standout feature of these new Fords was their V-shaped grille and fully integrated headlights placed in the outboard position on both De Luxe and Standard models, giving them a contemporary appearance that would carry them into the late 1940s. Mechanically, the 1940 Ford was similar to its predecessors with most cars powered by the venerable flathead V8 engine producing 85 horsepower. As in previous years, Ford offered a wide array of body styles, including two and four-door models, convertibles, and even a wood-bodied station wagon. Commercial buyers were also catered to, with both Standard and De Luxe versions of the Sedan Delivery. Today, the Sedan Delivery stands out as one of the rarest Ford De Luxe body styles from that era with just over 4,000 built in 1940, and far fewer surviving today as a result of their work-oriented purpose.
