Time to experience the best of both worlds. On the outside this is an intricately designed 1940 Ford pickup, but beneath the skin is a more modern chassis, a powerful V8 engine, automatic transmission, and even an A/C interior. So his unique build allows you to appear vintage but cruise in comfort.
The 1940 Ford pickup is the right place to start for a custom cruiser. After all, these trucks had true car-like styling with the now-iconic front end and fenders...but in rear there's still a useful pickup bed. This truck looks particularly nice in the Lyon Blue paint. It has a good gloss and shine that reminds you there's less than 2,400 miles on this build. Plus, details like dove gray pinstriping coordinates with the wheels. It has all the bright pieces you love, like the waterfall grille, teardrop headlight surrounds, and two-piece wheel covers with whitewalls. And the sheetmetal is so crisply defined that you can even easily see the details in the bed steel's stamping. And speaking of the bed, you'll love the look of the flush-fitting custom tonneau. It gets even better when you open it up to show off the fresh lumper underneath. So yes, this bed is more about hauling home trophies for this Ford.
The exterior blue returning inside, and now it's joined by a fresh black accenting the doors, floor, seats, and headliner. Just like the outside, the interior has a vintage style, but there's now even more thoughtful upgrading inside. For example, you still have the look of a classic bench seat. But now it's a full custom setup that includes excellent bolstering and finished in a supple leather. There are even dual armrests for individual-style comfort. And while has a clean and classic look, they also expertly integrated modern R134a air conditioning. The steering wheel is the thin/grippy vintage dual-spoke unit, and it gives you a clear view to the gauge package. Those readouts look classic, but Ford never gave you this much info from the factory. Add in the Lokar shifter, and you know to get ready for something special under the hood.
You'll love lifting the hood at car shows, because it looks like they couldn't have stuffed any more muscle inside the engine bay. Ford's mighty 302 cubic-inch V8 has a very tidy setup and an absolutely powerful presence. It's a roller motor with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and a Weiand aluminum intake. So this classic Ford has a serious upgrade in proper blue oval power. It's also supported by the right pieces, including upgraded pulleys with a serpentine belt system, Pertronics Flamethrower coil, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fan. As you look underneath, you'll spot nice upgrades like a Mustang II-style tubular A-arm independent front suspension, QA1 coilovers, and an overall fresh presentation. Plus, this one wants you to enjoy it for a terrific cruiser. That's why there's rack & pinion power steering, power brakes with drilled & slotted front discs.
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. Don't miss out, call today!
