Description:

Old meets new in a pretty impressive way with this astounding 1940 Ford panel delivery. While externally it still sports all its original Henry Ford sheetmetal, underneath there''s enough modern componentry to make it qualify for a new birth certificate. If you''re looking for the ultimate hauler, you''ve just found it. Nobody''s arguing that the 1940 Ford wasn''t among the all-time great designs. Just look at values between 1940 and 1941 models-the ''40s command a HUGE premium, so there''s something to be said for this truck''s classic good looks. It hasn''t been chopped or modified, although the rear fenders were subtly widened to handle some fat rubber underneath. A few subtle twists include a locking fuel filler door, an Olds Toronado taillight under the rear doors, and that cool fared-in sidemount spare that captures the essence of Ford''s commercial vehicles. The paint is a lovely soft Champagne Pearl Mist metallic borrowed from the Chrysler color palette and enhanced with a set of graphics from Soft Touch Studios that include vintage-looking Ford logos. The chrome has all been refinished, including the 1939 Ford grille and the bezels around the halogen tri-bar headlamps. If you''ve been inside a late-model GM pickup, you might find yourself feeling right at home inside this big Ford as well. The two-tone leather seats were borrowed from a ''93 Chevy pickup, and that same truck donated the dashboard, which was sectioned a staggering 25 inches to fit in the narrow confines of the Ford''s passenger compartment. Custom leather upholstery looks great with beautifully stitched door panels and matching carpets for a sophisticated look throughout. The wood-faced Chevy dash is fully functional, including the gauges, stereo system with remote cassette player, and even the HVAC controls! A billet wheel tops a tilt column, which is also enhanced by a billet shifter. And yes, there is a rear bench seat finished to match the front buckets, and while you''re back there, take a moment to admire the side panels, which feature Ford script and some seriously nice stitching. The cargo bay still offers plenty of room for hauling, and wears bright graphics that tie in with those on the outside of the truck. The engine is a TPI 350 cubic inch V8 out of that same 1993 Chevy pickup. Of course, it''s been rebuilt and slathered in chrome for a truly show-ready look, and wherever possible, OEM components were used to ensure reliability and easy service. You''ll note things like the Chevy ABS brake system is intact, the A/C system uses factory fittings and hoses, and there''s a serpentine belt drive system for reliability. The frame is an S10 piece lengthened four inches, with the front suspension lowered two inches and three inches in back. A 700R4 4-speed automatic channels power to a Chevy pickup rear end full of 3.42 gears, so this truck cruises effortlessly. Finally, 19-inch Boyd Coddington billet wheels have been fitted and wear 245/45/19 front and 275/30/19 rear Goodyear radials. Impressive doesn''t even begin to cover this incredible truck. With dozens of show wins to its credit, it''s time for someone else to start taking home the big trophies. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
