1940 Ford Pickup

We have said it once and will say it again, the front end look of a 1940 Ford is something you just can't beat. The rounded front fenders, pointed nose and low grill gives these cars the ultimate street rod appearance. This 1940 Ford Pickup is a great looking truck that has all the right stuff to back up that tough exterior. The body is in great condition and coated in a nice Torch Red paint that is subtly accented on the hood with custom painted ghost flames. It has been mostly dechromed except for the front/rear tail light bezels and mirrors which are found on each side. The grill and other trim pieces have been painted to match body with the doors being shaved. A third LED brakelight was added in back just underneath the rear tailgate which is original. A custom rear valance was created and fits well with the overall look. It provides space for the frenched in license plate and chrome dual exhaust tips. American Racing wheels sit under all four corners with the only exterior sign of the trucks power being the wide rear tires nicely hidden under the stock fenders in back (F-205 70R14, R-285 70R15.)

Spinning those tires is the 400ci small block under the hood that runs really strong. The torque of these motors are typically compared to the 396 big block and you often see people opting for the 400 due to similar performance with a lower weight. The engine was very well built utilizing a comp cam, Holly carburetor, Edlebrock intake, aftermarket headers, braided lines, Trick Flow aluminum heads and a finned air cleaner. Paired with the motor is a Muncie M20 transmission and Ford 9" rear end. Disc brakes were also added all around with a Wilwood master cylinder mounted to the firewall. The AC system was just fully installed and the truck was completely tuned up and gone through mechanically to make sure every thing is functioning properly.

The interior is finished out in Dark Grey with a light Grey on the dual bucket seats. The seats fit comfortable in the interior cab and are adjustable. The shifter is routed through the floor board and sits next to the emergency brake handle. Power windows are in place and operate via switches mounted to the door panels. The dash is painted to match the exterior and is topped off with VDO white face gauges, an AM/FM/CD player and the AC controls. A polished tilt column sits in front of the driver and is fitted with a Banjo style steering wheel. The bed of the truck is finished out just as nicely as the rest with nice wood paneling, stainless trim, a custom battery box and the custom gas cap.

This is an extremely cool pickup that has a look that does well at car shows and the drivetrain that can back it up on the street.
