Ford's regular panel delivery truck rode the same wheelbase but was 17 inches longer overall. At a glance, they looked similar from the front, since both models had turned to semi-integral sealed-beam headlamps; but the Ford Sedan Delivery borrowed its front end from the DeLuxe Ford car.
This pristine 1957 Ford Courier Sedan Delivery is a far cry from what we consider a delivery vehicle in the modern age – We’re more used to seeing wheezing diesels puttering into our driveways with deliveries, but it wasn’t always like this.
Riding a 112-inch wheelbase, the 1940 Ford Sedan Delivery measured nearly 180 inches long and 72 inches wide, with Gross Vehicle Weight of 4,300 pounds.
Cargo space in the 1940 Ford Sedan Delivery was longer and wider than ever, with steel skid strips protecting the hardbound tongue-and-groove floor. A single rear door provided access to that space, whereas regular panel trucks wore a pair of entry doors out back.
