Very fortunate find. There were fewer '40 convertile sedans, than in '41  I'm intrigued about the body number in the name plate. It looks like itn says 3C. The body color was black, and will make a handsome car when it's finished.

I did my '41 a few yearrs ago,and it was far worse than this one is.

BOB , I don't thank it is body number5 36,look at the "6" above in the style number. I think the owner should say what he thinks it is. Regardless which body it is , it will look good when finished. Good Luck,JIM

Jim, if you'd observed  & collected  as many data plates as I have you would know that the style  of the body type stamps  & the  style of the body # stamps  are DIFFERENT. Besides, it wasn't the owner that made the comment, it was Doug. Look at your coupe tag & see what I mean.  There is NO such thing as body # 3C.   Bob
