1940 Ford Pickup
Slick paint meets real wood to make a terrific total custom package on this 1940 Ford pickup. And when you see the custom A/C interior and big blower V8 power, you soon realize this is the kind of thoughtful build you'd do to if you started from scratch. The 1940 Ford pickup is already a great place to start with a custom build. The teardrop headlight surrounds, waterfall grille, and sleek profile are all part of a factory design that looked like they knew the hot rod generation was coming. And everything from the swoopy rear fenders (now fiberglass) to the slick green paint continues the sporty appeal. Plus, more details like the pinstriping and blacked-out torque thrust wheels really drive home the custom look. But as you notice elements like the ridges in the sheetmetal and the real wood in the bed, you realize that this still retains a great classic pickup feeling - no matter how much metallic element radiates from the paint. The tan is a great pinstripe color against the green, and so they give you even more of it in the custom interior. The door panels, headliner, dash, carpeting, and seat are all finished in this great timeless two-tone. And more than just look terrific, it's a nice upgrade in comfort over anything available in the 1940s. The custom bench seat has individual bolstering, tall headrests, and a fold-down cup holder console to give you a bucket-like level of individuality. An updated machine like this also comes with the best in updated features like R134a air conditioning, a full upgraded gauge package, and provisions for an AM/FM/CD stereo. But just to remind you that you're still driving a vintage pickup, there's the classic dual spoke steering wheel. Under the hood is a fresh 350 cubic-inch V8 Ã¢â‚¬" after all there's less 2,000 miles on the whole build. It's dressed with plenty of shine and performance hardware.... and everyone knows what a blower looks like on top of a V8. So that Weiand unit adds plenty of air, and the big Holley Quick Fuel four-barrel carburetor mixes in plenty of fuel to create some serious performance. Plus, you have other great performance components like the long tube headers that add power while also contributing to the rumble of the dual exhaust. Plus, the large aluminum radiator keeps it all running cool. Out on the road, this performance pickup is also an easy cruiser thanks to features like an updated chassis, upgraded Mustang II-style independent front suspension, power steering, and front disc brakes. There's even a four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive so you can take this full custom build out on the highway. Complete with build receipts, this is everything you want in a classic custom pickup, and it's ready to run right now. So don't miss out, call today!
