Edsel Ford’s 1934 Model 40 Speedster

Beautiful classic car displayed at the annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, in California.

“Inspired by European rides of the late ’20s and early ’30s and drawn by Ford’s chief designer E.T. Gregorie, the Speedster was based on a 1934 Ford frame but underwent major surgery to appear longer and lower, and has recently been restored to its original specifications, making it as authentic as any 1940 model could reasonably be.”
