is "Model O1-A" an internal code?...that not what I thought! :??:
Up to me, any internal code should be in the chassis fild, and have nothing to do in the name+extra info code

I have done further research on this car.Although the headlight rims are chromed , the radiator grille is only chromed on its centerpiece , so it is more probably a Ford model 022 A Standard V8 Coupe of 1940 even if the Standards normally had unchromed headlight rims.
As all American cars changed year by year and as there were almost always several model lines ,their designation usually ads the manufacturer 's code of the model or the series (this is not a chassis code) as in this example Model 022 A.To simplify we could name the car and the year ;Ford Standard V8 Coupe , 1940 and add the manufacturers code in brackets :(Model O22A)and leave it up to you if you wish or not to mention that code.

By the way, for US vehicles, "coupé" or "coupe" ? :D

Just did some checking in old brouchures and it seems that Coupe is the common spelling.

A question for pilou, don´t you think that V8 should be first part of the modelname? I think Ford put emphasis on that during the first years of production, like on this ad from 1935:

Yes , one can write Ford V8 Standard Coupe 1940 , but as you say ,this applies for the first years of production of the V8. With the launch of the new 6 cylinder engine in 1941 these later cars may be powered by the V8 or the 6 and that is not always possible to find out.

I had a feeling that there was a change in 1941, but I wasn´t sure. I didn´t think about the new Six, but that makes sense. After that I guess you could have both the Six and the V8 in different levels of equipment.

Actually, I think this is a De Luxe model. The wipers are in the cowel whereas the standard had them suspended from above the windscreen. Also the standard should have body color headlight surrounds.
