Down On The Street (or work parking lot)

Here's the third interesting vehicle I've captured in pixels in the Electra parking lot (the first two here and here), a 1940 Dodge that's owned by a co-worker.
Wide whites, six cylinders, three on the tree, suicide doors. He bought it as a barn find in good condition in Arizona about ten years ago.

Early on the car was a parade vehicle for the then-governor of Arizona. Or that's the story at least. I bet dark paint and no air conditioning was less-than-desirable to say the least.
The Dodge is in good shape overall, just covered in a layer of dust after spending a few months at a shop getting the head gasket and brake system replaced.
Nice stylized ram hood ornament. And this beast sure has presence.
