I've always been curious, but never stopped in. It may have even had a for sale sign in the window for a bit.
I did, went in to ask about it about 5 years ago. At the time, he was asking $9k and stated it had a Ford 351 in it, if I recall. If not a 351, it was a ford something. Exterior was not in that great of shape, I never looked in the engine bay.

I see this nice specimen over by my house a lot.
Not sure if the owner's on here, I think so I think I remember seeing this 40 at the rally this year.

Thanks for the nice comments. That's mine. I am usually driving it or a blue 76 40 around in the neighborhood. Usually to Ace or the Autozone down the street. This time it was a subway run.

Lol, I did too. I saw him about 3pm or so rolling home in traffic. Hard to miss Marco.
