You may have already seen Larry's jet-black DeLuxe coupe at the SEMA Show in November or in January in the Alloway's Hot Rod Shop display at the Grand National Roadster Show. Bobby Alloway built the car, but many Ford fans know that E.T. "Bob" Gregorie originally designed the 1940 Ford. Edsel Ford hired 22-year old Gregorie in 1931. By the time he was 30, Gregorie had designed the 1936 Lincoln Zephyr, the first Mercury, the prototype for the Lincoln Continental, and the car considered by a many people to be Henry Ford's best looking: the 1940 Ford.

Gregorie's famous design has inspired thousands of rodders, including Larry's friend Mike Stewart, an exec at Cloninger Automotive Group, who owns a small corral of 1939 and 1940 Fords. Larry talked to Mike about finding the right raw material for his own project. One particular 1940 Ford coupe that appealed to Larry was the 2012 STREET RODDER Road Tour car (featured online at hotrod.com), built with a Ford Coyote engine and a Dennis Carpenter Ford Restoration Parts 19-gauge steel reproduction body shell.

The fact that Dennis Carpenter is located just a few miles away made the body choice easy. The next choice was selecting the right shop to build the coupe. When Larry started listing his preferences for the car—an aggressive stance, a big engine, black paint—Mike told him, "You're describing what Bobby Alloway builds." Mike was partially right. What Larry described is the Alloway's Hot Rod Shop style, but as Bobby told us, his shop had never built a full 1940 Ford before.

The build started with the reproduction body, Larry's ideas, and a concept drawing from designer Eric Brockmeyer. By starting with a new body, Bobby and the Alloway's Hot Rod Shop team could bypass the damage repair that is part of many street rod builds. Even so, they still had to chase the exterior parts not found in the Dennis Carpenter catalog, adding an original hood, grille, dash, and garnish moldings.

Gregorie's design from almost 80 years ago has not gone out of style and Alloway honored it with Larry's coupe. Trim was added, along with door handles, locks, and other hardware. Headlights and taillights are reproduction pieces. The repro bumpers are tucked into the body.

The Ford Mustang Defeated The Whole World

  The Ford Mustang Defeated The Whole World I know it’s “cool” and “rad” to complain about modern cars and their computers and safety systems and fake engine noises, but the fact is that the performance-minded buyer has more and better options than ever before.

There was bit of careful and subtle cosmetic surgery performed to the sheetmetal. The gaps between the hood and fenders on stock 1940 Fords are notoriously uneven, and the nose appears to rise slightly from rear to front. Alloway's fabricators sliced and gently reshaped the fenders at the hood to conform to the shape of the hood, perfecting the gaps. The hood itself was pie-cut and lowered just enough to improve the profile. The stock hood trim was cut and shortened to look unmodified on the reshaped hood. STREET RODDER photographed the process, and you can see exactly how it was done at hotrod.com. The doors were extended to reduce the gap above the running boards. The front fenders were pushed forward, consistent with the lengthened wheelbase. Later, the car was painted deep black—Larry's choice and Alloway's trademark. The mirror finish is accomplished with PPG Deltron 9700 black paint. Chrome has to really stand out against that paint and Dan's Polishing Shop in Adamsville, Tennessee, made sure it does.

A pair of redesigned 1964 Thunderbird bucket seats were upholstered in flat black leather to contrast the shiny paint. Steve Holcomb at Pro Auto Custom Interiors in Knoxville handled the job, including the black cloth headliner, Daytona weave carpet, and the narrow package tray hiding the battery. Classic instruments created the '40s-inspired gauges. The Lecarra two-spoke steering wheel and the Hurst shifter inject some '60s flavor and fit Alloway's distinctive hot rod style. The trunk floor features two small slide doors, one covering a storage compartment, the other covering the battery on/off switch. A pull-down door in the back panel allows access to the Rock Valley 15-gallon stainless fuel tank.

The "over-the-top" engine requirement is taken care of by a carbureted 429 from Jon Kaase Racing Engines. The 700hp Kaase Boss Nine is backed by an American Powertrain TREMEC TKO five-speed transmission. It took some fabrication to pack all that motor between the fenders of the 1940, especially after big Kaase engine was fitted with a Billet Specialties Tru Trac serpentine system, Vintage Air A/C compressor, Powermaster alternator, and Barillaro Speed Emporium full-length headers. Custom inner fenders were fabricated, the firewall was recessed, and the transmission tunnel was formed to make room. A custom radiator support was built for the Walker radiator.

The most challenging obstacle was fitting the steering shaft, since the straight path from the ididit column was blocked by a Boss Nine cylinder head. Alloway's solution was to mount a Wizard Fabrication Steer Clear offset steering coupler on the inside of the firewall, moving the shaft approximately 6 inches toward the outside of the engine compartment, and threading the shaft between the header pipes.

The finished 1940 was displayed prominently at its 2017 SEMA Show debut. It started the new year in Los Angeles at the Grand National Roadster Show and will continue on the show circuit for the rest of 2018. After that, it's home to North Carolina, where the beautiful black coupe will be enjoyed on the street and displayed in Larry's dealership showrooms. Larry is very happy with how his 1940 DeLuxe street rod turned out. We have to believe that Bob Gregorie would be too.
