Jaw Dropper: 1934 Ford Model 40 Special Speedster

This is one of those cars that's hard not to drool over, no matter who you are.  It's got elegant classic racing lines with just enough of a modern hint to make you wish it was in your driveway.  This particular Ford Model 40 has a rich (and at times mysterious) 77-year history that has intrigued enthusiasts for years.  It all started in 1932 when Edsel Ford asked high-ranking Ford designers to create a special racer for him similar to what he had seen in Europe.  Ever since, this car has moved through the decades with painstaking modifications and restorations.  Today, the finished product is near perfection and was auctioned off by RM Auctions.  Oh so bold.
