1940 Ford Pickup
Truck Car for sale by Diversion Motors in Manitowoc, Wisconsin 54220
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.

Classic Car Overview
1940 Ford Pickup $37,500
Price reduced! The 1940 Ford represents one of the most beautiful pickup designs of all time. This restored example is a testament to this endearing platform. With its classic lines, great color, and flathead power it’s a classic that anyone can appreciate.
There is no missing this Arizona truck with its brilliant red paint and wide whitewall tires. It is further enhanced by the gorgeous front grille and other brightwork. I think this model has just the right amount of chrome, with enough to give some pop without making things gaudy. Not to be overlooked is the wonderful wooden bed (you won’t want to be hauling scrap iron with this one). The frame, suspension, steering, and brakes are essentially the stock design but with many new parts throughout; bushings, shackles, kingpins, shoes, cylinders, etc.
The engine runs great and looks sharp! It is a 239ci flathead V8 that has been rebuilt and nicely dressed up. You can’t miss the dual carburetors, polished coolant tubes, and brass radiator tank. It has been converted to a 12V negative ground system with an alternator for charging. There is also an electric fuel pump in back to better feed the carburetors. The balance of the drivetrain uses a factory style 3-speed manual transmission, torque tube, and rear end.
The interior continues the stock theme, though here too everything has been redone. The bench seat, doors, dash, and headliner all look great. I especially like the big white steering wheel with working horn button, along with the tall chrome shifter. The gauges, lights, wipers, and courtesy lighting all work as well. The truck has also been fitted with turn signals using a column switch.
These pre-war Fords are some of the most desirable pickups on the market. There has been a lot of work done on this example and the result looks especially nice inside and out. Get ready for lots of waves, smiles, and thumbs up in this one.
All vehicle trades considered, including classics and performance. I can assist with financing and transport as needed.
