This is the kind of truck that knows the difference between just showing up to the event and winning the big awards. Detailed paintwork, luxurious interior, and a fuel-injected V8 come together in this 1940 Ford to make one terrific total package classic cruising pickup.
In 1940, Ford created one of the most stunning pickup designs for the ages. This one celebrates that style by utilizing the full custom build to highlight all the best features on this icon. It starts up front where the bumper has been removed so you can get the full view of that awesome pointed break that was shared with the iconic can line. Plus, the metallic burgundy has the kind of candy-coated lusted to really bring out the smooth lines in the hood. The silver in this two-tone is just as important. It emphasizes the round fenders up front, where it really draws attention to the teardrop headlights and the turn signal hidden under the sporty slats. On the rear fenders, that silver seems to elongate the custom work even further, and the taillights match the front slates for a cool uniform detail that only the best builds get. And while we have mentioned how impressive the two-tone is, equally as nice is its dividing line. That hand-painted orange pinstripe work will have true enthusiasts coming in for a closer look every time. And there's just so much more custom work to go over – including the chopped body lines, 17-inch Boyd's alloys, and two-section secured bed – that it's just too much to list here. So it's best if you just pour through the pictures now, and then just call for all the details.
When you open the door, you see even more thoughtful details. It starts with a full burgundy interior that so nicely coordinates with the exterior paint. Those dual bucket seats even continue the chevron design seen on the fenders – yes, this build is that thoughtful! You'll slip behind the wood and chrome steering wheel that nicely coordinates with the lumber on the dash and the surrounds for the full set of AutoMeter gauges. This is an exceptionally clean presentation with just the Lokar shifter and provisions for R134a air conditioning sitting below the dash. But this tidy custom is also loaded with power driver's seat, power windows, and an AM/FM/CD stereo. You just don't see them at first, because it's all housed in a custom overhead console.
This truck has been about showing off so much that the engine bay certainly won't disappoint. In fact, you should grab your sunglasses before opening the hood. Polished components, steel-braided hoses, and the pulleys for the serpentine belt system can impress all on their own, but this one adds mirrored panel just so that everyone can see every angle of the details. And there are even exterior-matching metallic burgundy details throughout just for that final touch of impressiveness. More than just stylish, this truck has some serious substance. You're looking at a fuel-injected 350 cubic-inch V8. It exhales through headers that add even more power as they contribute to the rumble of the dual exhaust. Out on the road, you're going to love the upgraded tubular A-arm independent front suspension, multi-link rear, and adjustable coilovers all around. Add in power steering, front disc brakes, and a four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, and this is a cut-above custom that is easy to drive near or far.
You've been totaling up what it would take to get the paint, interior, engine bay, and custom frame like this one here. And so you know the asking price is far less than you could have it built from scratch, and this one only has 1,300 miles on the build. Best of all, this is a dream machine that's turnkey ready today for the first person to grab it. So don't miss out, call today!!!
