1940 Chevrolet Ratrod Hotrod Restomod Pick up - Florida Title

What the hell are you looking at?

This is one of the baddest Rat Rod /Hot rod truck custom builds you will ever find.

This truck is not like most Rat rods that are death traps. It is safe, reliable and operates without issues. We have spent over 56k in parts, labor, design and set up, to bring now what is a one-off custom truck that no one has.

Clean and clear Florida title in hand. Yes I am located in Toronto, an hour from Buffalo NY border. Bought this truck from Florida but never registered the truck. It still has the original paper work; driving it back across is not an issue. I can drive it back across, to set up and take delivery to your residence in the US. If it stays in Canada you will have to pay the 2k in fees/ taxes to convert the title.

Honest and accurate in the description of this truck and build. Don't rip people off, believe in karma. I know many people like to throw arbitrary numbers of hundreds and thousands spent, but look at just some of the receipts and components on this truck. It’s all brand new. Labor and parts off the charts. Please do not waste your time in low-balling me as I won't respond. No trades. I’m not in a mad rush to sell as I'm on to my next project already. Please note this cab has NO BONDO, NO RUST, it is one of the nicest you will ever see. Comes with clear Florida title and VIN tag on the cab; for 77 years old that isextraordinary.


Frame is custom CNC 5 inch chained link, designed fabricated and built with over 150 hours welding for completion $9300. Upon completion it was coated and driven vigorously, tested for straightness and rigidity. We then stripped it to the frame, and glass blasted it ($1500) just to get to the holes in each chain and underneath to get it prepared for paint. We glass blasted the frame and did the bed.

Brand new steel floors created all welds and bracing professionally done. We placed a brand new 480LE with 2500 clutchconverterinto truck, replacing the 3 speed r400.

Dash was stripped and taken out to customize the New Vintage Gauges placed ($500) for the set. They have an old school look with all modern dials. All the gauges work and read properly.

The seat is from an Odyssey and was customized ($1200) to not only flip forward, but also come forward upwards to expose the electronics ECU ($2000) and other items sitting below, as well there is a spot for storage. Custom modified shift skull with press down, to engage gears.


This is a 1940 Chevy ½ ton pickup with ZERO RUST, the paint is 77 years old Patina Red. There was some custom splashes of orange in the paint to give it a nice old school look, along with the decals on the doors.

The glass has all been removed and replaced with brand new cut glass with 10% tint on all five windows. The Fulton sun shade was dissembled and painted black. Door handles corrected. The body was then clear coated. The cab is incredible, body work alone was in the thousands. The front grill is a rare piece from 1934, as are the lights from 1933 retro.

Brand New Glass all around the truck five windows

Brand New Seals all around the truck


22 inch Chip Foose 5 start black wheels, the rears are running 305/40/22 fronts are 275/40/22, the tires and wheels are new. ($3500)


The 454 block is freshly bored and torque platemollyhoned to .060 sonic checked to ensure concentric cylinder wall thickness after boring and honing.

The block has been line honed, square decked, and new cam bearings installed along with new brass freeze plugs. All bolt holes and threads are fine.

This engine has a brand new set of lightweight, fully CNC machined probe forged pistons and sheet pro plasmamollyrings (1/16, 1/16, 3/16 oil.) These pistons yield a pump gas friendly 10.251 compression ratio. Keith Black is an industry leader in pistons.

They have been assembled with new set of 1 piece stainless steel swirl polished severe duty quality cast valves (2.25 x 1.88.) These valves are 11/32 stem and .250 longer than stock. A new set of double springs and chromoly retainers with hardened locks and a new set of pc seals. These heads also have new aluminum or stainless steel 1.7 ratio full roller rocker arms. New pushrods, new rocker studs, guide plates and a new set of Chromalloy 12 point cylinder bolts with Teflon tape. Pan balancer, timing cover and pump not included.

This engine has been completely torn down and reassembled via Eagle Engines in Toronto. It is brand new, and is a monster,(see pics ). Originally this truck was going to be ¼ mile set up. With 540HP and 480 pounds torque, running through huge straight pipes, the power is incredible. Two 500 CFM Edelbrock carbs are mounted on top for massive air grab, these ran me $1500 alone. This motor has 8 hours driving time on it, it is BRAND NEW. I have $9400 into the motor.


Brand new rebuilt 480le transmission from 2010 Sierra, this transmission is electronically controlled with 4 gears, most importantly with overdrive for highway cruising. Shifts beautifully. $1600 spent.

Rear End

12 Bolt posi with 3.73 gears
