When you demand the best of everything, then you're ready for this
1940 Ford pickup. Every inch of the custom built was crafted to be
a fully coordinated package. And more than just award-worthy, this
one has all the best comfort amenities (including A/C) and a speedy
fuel-injected V8 heart. 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. It's the product of a restoration where quality was always chosen over cost (just look at the undercarriage photos!) And because there's less than 5,500 miles on this Ford since completion, it's 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 Ford's factory yesterday. But this is much more than vintage metal... that paint instantly let's everyone know you've arrived in a bold and thoughtful custom build. Bittersweet Orange and a high-gloss black is an unbeatable combination. The separation on the Harley-Davidson inspired two-tone looks particularly nice because there is a bright pinstripe that creates some cool flames along the division line. And as people get drawn in for a closer look, they'll love all the detail work. It's seen in elements like the bright side exhaust, matching bed cover, secret compartment in the real-wood truck bed, and how you get an unobstructed view of the artful front end thanks to an expertly deleted front bumper.
Open the suicide doors to reveal an interior that's far more comfortable than anything to come from the 1940s. This full custom build has individual bucket seats, and with such low mileage there wasn't even time to crease them. The tan leather on here matches the doors panels, carpeting, and console trim. We'd tell you it matches the headliner, too, but really you'll be too busy admiring the design of the custom ostrich inserts. Plus, the cool orange and black elements from the exterior are used to accent the interior - giving you the kind of full inside/out uniform appearance that judges love at car shows. You'll love placing the banjo-style steering wheel in your left hand and grabbing the tall skull gearstick your right one. Just ahead of that is custom Dolphin full gauge cluster running up the center. And because this is a true cruising machine, you get all the best luxury features like power windows, power locks, an AM/FM/CD stereo, and ice-cold R134a air conditioning.
The engine bay is just as impressive as the interior and exterior. A ton was invested so that all you see within those smooth fender walls all you see are polished pieces and color-matched components. And in a total package classic like this, style also comes with 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 features like the upgraded Mustang II-style independent front suspension, power steering, four wheel disc brakes, and the grip of modern performance tires on the Billet Specialties wheels. And even more signs of a thoughtful build include a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive, and an aluminum radiator to make sure this pickup runs cool even when you're in traffic with the A/C pumping. But more than just the practical side, we know you've seen how the color scheme even extends to the undercarriage. Oh yes, this is might be an easy driver, but you'll want to put a mirror under it where you park.
A truck 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!!!
