Even the craziest Chevrolet followers admit that Ford was playing a lot of hits before World War II. One of those runway delights was the 1940 Ford, an immortal, eternal icon of Dearborn’s greatest years. Joseph P. Cabadas, who authored photo histories on auto production and the giant Ford works at River Rouge, has introduced ’40 Ford. Given the numerous histories on the Model T and ’32 Deuce, it’s long overdue.
Since the 1940 model lineup was the culmination of everything Ford did in the 1930s, Cabadas treats it as such, in 160 pages with some bang-up hardcover art. The illustration level is rich. Price: $35, from www.motorbooks.com.
