​Randall Oder's 1940 Ford Deluxe Coupe
Randall tells us: "Ground up restoration including TCI frame and a Ford 351 c.i. with Wheelsmith ["Vintage"] wheels and hub caps. And by the way, caps fit your wheels great. Had to replace the first ones I bought from another source. Won't do that again."

Ford Motor Company introduced its De Luxe Ford line in 1938 as an upscale alternative to bridge the gap between its base model (usually called Standard) and luxury Lincoln offerings. The "Deluxe" name was used intermittently before and after this to specify an upscale trim, but the De Luxe Ford line was differentiated as a separate "marque within a marque" with separate styling and pricing through 1940.

HOW DO YOU MEASURE UP?
Measuring The Front Wheel Well For Optimal Fit.
 
 
 
 
Jack vehicle up on level ground by the suspension. Remove the lug nuts and wheels. Support the car with Jack Stands at the suspension. Be sure the hub’s mounting surface is vertical. Use a rigid straight edge for all measurements, about 30” long for best results. When measuring from the mounting surface, be sure to use that side of the straight edge for measurements.
 
 
 
 
STEP BY STEP
Measure the mounting suface to the fender edge at the highest point (B).
Measure from the mounting surface to the first obstruction on the frame side at that verticle point of the fender edge (A).
Measure the hub diameter (C).
Measure radius from the hub center to top of the brake caliper (D).
Measure the mounting surface to the outer edge of brake caliper (E).
Not necessary for drum brakes.
Measure the hub length from the mounting surface (F).
Not necessary on rear wheels.
Measure the distance from the center of hub and top of fender lip (H).
