The Ford Model 18 (Ford V-8) is a 2-seater car produced by Ford in 1932 to succeed the Model A, released alongside the 4-cylinder Model B. It was revised into the Model 40 in 1933, the Model 40B in 1943, and was replaced by the Model 48 in 1935.

Slipping sales of the Model A in 1931 were first believed by Henry Ford to be caused by the dealerships, but was convinced by his staff that the Model A had become obsolete and the market wanted more luxury in their car.

Production of the Model 18 and Model B began in 1931 following the Model A being discontinued without any firm plans for a new car or its engine. Later planned design goals for the new car aimed for greater comfort, more power, and a more elegant look while still being affordable.

It was released to the public in 1932 with various dealers showing some models with unique clear hoods to show customers the new Ford "Flathead" V8 engine.

All three models became iconic in hotrod culture with the various models being entitled "Deuce".
