Classic Car Overview
When you demand the best of everything, then youre ready for this 1940 Ford pickup. Every inch of the custom built was crafted to be a fully coordinated package, including the powerful V8. And more than just award-worthy, this one has all the best comfort amenities, including A/C and an overdrive transmission. So this is the one classic that leaves you wanting for nothing. Just looking down the bright, shiny flanks of this Ford, you can see that the money was spent wisely. Its the product of a restoration where quality was always chosen over cost (just look at the undercarriage photos!) And because theres less than 740 miles on this Ford since completion, its like getting it fresh from the restoration shop. In fact, the sheetmetal is more than three-quarters of a century old, but it looks like it rolled out of Henry Fords factory yesterday. But theres a lot more that really tells you how thoughtful the build was. For example, the paint has that perfect pastel tone to look period-correct. But its actually borrowed from a more modern palette, which gives it an amazing gloss and luster. So just like nostalgia, this is shines brighter than it ever could from the factory. And we know you love the way the classic whitewalls look on the color-matched vintage wheels, but this also need to be a great cruiser. So fiberglass fenders were added to give you the classic look with still getting modern and wider rubber. And the more time you spend with this, the more you see all the great details. Like how the tune signals were integrated into the side mirrors; the glossy wood in the bed has a hidden compartment for the gas tank filler; and you get an unobstructed view of the artful front end thanks to an expertly deleted front bumper. Yes, they really took the time to get this one to an award-worthy level. Inside the sea of green continues. They really took the time to restore this one nicely, and the longer you look at it, the more impressive it gets. For example, not only does the bench seat look exceptionally fresh, but it has the right modern bolstering for all-day comfort. And we love how the texture of the inserts is continued on the custom door panels. Your left hand goes on the banjo-style steering wheel with glossy wood surround, and your right hand may never want to leave the tall gear stick. And while the gauges look original, you might remember that these Fords never originally needed a 140 mph speedometer and never had a tachometer. Some upgrades like the R134a air conditioning are easy to spot, but other like the power windows (disguised as manual cranks) are a bit more difficult. The total package makes for a very comfortable custom pickup that never betrays its vintage atmosphere. The engine bay is just as impressive as the interior and exterior. A ton was invested so that all you see within those smooth walls see are polished pieces and color-matched components. In fact, painting the block the same exterior minty green shows the level of total dedication to this project. And in a total package classic like this, style also comes with substance. Youre looking at a 327 cubic-inch V8 with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and a terrific-sounding dual exhaust. And we mentioned earlier about taking a look at the undercarriage, and thats because this one has an upgrade to a TCI chassis. Not only does that make the truck feel solid on the road, but also the upgraded Mustang II-style independent front suspension and front disc brakes keep this one truly a modern cruiser. You even have a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive. So this is the kind of vintage truck thats as easy to drive to the show as it is to take on the morning commute. A classic like this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. After all, few people have the time, patience, and budget to create something so thoroughly awesome. And this is your opportunity to skip the headache and go straight to the rewards.
