1940 Chevy Business Coupe Street Rod
Chevrolet was in good shape in 1940, ahead of Ford and producing General Motors' 25-millionth car. Chevrolet made many changes over the years in order to compete with Ford. By 1937, Chevy’s 216 cubic inches generated the same 85 hp as the 221-cubic-inch Ford. Chevy's engine was unchanged for 1940. That was the final year in which both independent and solid-axle front ends were offered, and style was evolving. A wider and less sharply pointed grille helped the fenders and hood to blend more smoothly than in 1939. Headlights were now sealed-beam units located farther apart and looking much less like an afterthought. Trunkless coaches and sedans vanished in 1939, so 1940 brought better-integrated trunks. The fresh look and proven drivetrain pushed 1940 production to more than 760,000 cars, 180,000 more than 1939 output.

Our inventory is always stored indoors! We have a brand new, state-of-the-art, 20,000 square foot facility that is open to the public. We would love for you to stop by and see us! We are located 20 minutes away from Detroit Metro Airport, and would be happy to pick you up and drop you off if you fly in. New cars arrive daily, and our inventory is always changing.
Vanguard Motor Sales owns all of our inventory, we are not a consignment dealership. You are dealing directly with the owner of the vehicle, not a middle man. All of our vehicle titles are free of liens, and we are not selling other peoples problems. Every car we purchase is of the utmost quality. Our mission is to exceed your expectations!
If you are interested in this car, or any of our other 50+ cars, don’t wait for the auction to end on eBay. You may loose out if you wait! Our shop is open to the public, and when a walk in customer puts a deposit on a car we reserve the right to close the eBay listing before the auction ends. If you think this car is “The One”, we can end the auction by adding a “But It Now” to the auction for the reserve price. If an auction ends and the bids do not meet the reserve price, we will continue to relist it until it sells. Do not hesitate to contact Tom 7 days a week!
We take over 100 photographs of the car, as well as a high definition video, so you know exactly what to expect. We encourage you to hire an independent inspector to check out the car, prior to purchase or bidding. We have a hoist available for views of the undercarriage, and our mechanics are available to speak with if you have any questions.
Vanguard Motor Sales has sold classic and muscle cars to customers in The United States, Canada, Australia, The United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, France, Norway, The Netherlands and many other countries.
