The 1940 Ford pickup is one of the most sought-after vintage pickups around. This highly stylish, and very original V8 truck is even setup for practical modern use.
Around this period a lot of manufactures tried to make their trucks more user-friendly by giving them car-like styling. the result is a vehicle that looks like the iconic '40 Ford of the era in the front end and fenders, but in the rear there's a tough and useful pickup bed. this truck looks particularly nice in a regal blue, with its full chrome package intact. Its not just the pristine condition of the truck bed and body in this slick paint that makes us think this pickup is all about going to the car show. This one has perfect whitewall tires, chrome dish hubcaps, with the Ford V8 logo, and subtle pin striping around the cab to make this workhorse feel like a fancy classic. While that might be true, this one has been upgraded for some very specific work, but more on that later.
The same nice shade of blue on the outside continues throughout the interior. Like a good pickup, the inside is more about providing industrial function, but the black bench seat is still quite a nice place to sit. You get to rest your right hand on the tall stick shift, and your left one is firmly planted on the stylish two spoke steering wheel. Beyond that is a full array of instruments in there own beautifully styled panel under a single pane of glass. Really a very nicely done classy interior!
Beyond the great styling, these Fords are so widely popular because of the flathead V8 engine. When you open the hood you see the iconic head shape, and if you look closer, some nice upgrades become quite apparent. First of all, this is a lager 239 cubic-inch motor that is mated to a three speed manual transmission. It breathes nicely through a dual exhaust, and when you looked at those shiny chrome tips out back, did you notice the trailer hitch? Yes, this classic pickup is setup to haul. The package includes an upgrade to a 12-volt electrical system so you can utilize a modern trailer plug, and there's a new high efficiency radiator to keep the torquey V8 cool and happy when hauling.
You're looking at one of the most iconic classic pickups, and this one is already set to pull anything from a parade float to your company's product. Just imagine the possibilities with this beautiful and affordable Ford. We haven't had one this nice in the showroom in a while. Call today!!
