RECENT RESTO, CUSTOM PAINT, STRONG 350 V8, AUTO, R134A A/C, PWR FRNT DISC/STEER
If you have any questions about the quality of this 1940 Ford pickup, come in for a drive and be prepared to be impressed. Spectacular to look at and fully sorted so it's a show-stopping vehicle you can actually drive, this beautiful Ford is like nothing you've ever seen before.
The two-tone color combination is subtle yet effective, so if you're tired of red and black and even garden-variety purple, then this is a good way to grab some attention. Of course, painting it two-tone means you'd better nail the other stuff, too, so the original steel body was properly straightened and aligned before the paint went on. It's only about two months old, so it looks spectacular, and they didn't erase any of the '40 Ford's inherent goodness. The original bed was shortened and the fenders were widened a bit to give it a more aggressive stance, but you'd need a stock one next to it to be certain. The tailgate is from a '37 Ford, cut and modified to fit, and the latches were stashed out of sight to make it look clean. The oak floor has eight coats of outdoor polyurethane on it, so it should last forever, and the fuel filler was cleverly integrated into the corner where it won't get in the way. Shaved bumpers help with the compact, muscular look, and all the chrome trim was polished up to look its best.
As timeless as the exterior seems, the subtle green interior compliments it just fine. The bench seat looks appropriate for 1940, although it's a late-model piece that was custom upholstered to match the handsome dark green bodywork. It's all new, of course, with a few pieces of billet and polished aluminum, new Stewart Warner instruments that have a vintage look, and a handsome LeCarrera steering wheel on a tilt column. A/C makes this a go-anywhere cruiser and a Bluetooth stereo makes it a pleasure to drive. There are two charge ports for your GPS or phone, which is a thoughtful touch, and a pair of cup holders under the seat mean someone was thinking about driving when this truck went together. You'll probably find it hard to resist when the open road calls.
For power, it runs a 350 cubic inch Chevy V8 and a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission, and reliability was the reason. While it sure looks like a trailer queen, this truck was really built to run and it just wouldn't do to have a truck this visible breaking down by the side of the road. It features a Holley 4-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock intake manifold, HEI ignition, a finned aluminum dress-up kit, and an all-new electrical system. The cooling system starts with a giant aluminum radiator and includes a big electric cooling fan, and service access is still quite good. The front suspension is a modern A-arm setup with rack-and-pinion steering and coil-over shocks, while out back, a Chevy S10 rear end gives it a highway-friendly gears. Polished Torque Thrusts carry staggered BFGoodrich radials that give it just a bit of a rake.
Gorgeous, well-executed, and fully sorted, this is the kind of rod that will always be the star of the show. If you like the color, I guarantee you'll love the truck. Call today!
