Own a legend! Gorgeous garnet red crystal diamond pearl colored '40
Ford Truck built by the famed custom builders at Jesse's Hot Rod
Shop of New York. The deceptively simple-appearing custom endured
three years before finally emerging as the stunning, understated
cruiser that took the power show tour across the country coast to
coast by storm. This cool ride has taken the top spot on the
Like so many projects this was an ambitious goal to make a timeless
custom. The top was chopped 2 1/2 inches and received a pie cut.
The rain wells have also been smoothed. The hood had 1 1/2 inches
taken out and extended 1 inch. The iconic Ford grill was brought
forward, but the lower section remained. This gives a more
aggressive forward look. The fenders also received a pie cut adding
1 inch to bring them out. The headlights were brought back 1/2 inch
for a more streamline look. Rear drivers side fender has a
custom-built gas tank door. Tailgate is a work of art. The heavy
steel gate has the latch on the inside to keep the lines clean. The
bed is wood lined with a non-slipcover keeping to a period correct
look. One only must look at the door and hood gaps to the level of
The scope of the project was to incorporate traditional elements
into a timeless design. The dashboard is a blending of the original
truck and a coupe dash. The instrument panel is a custom made one
off keeping to the classic look. The center grill is hiding the
rear air ride controls. Creature comforts as Vintage Air & Heat and
defrost are a must for cruising. Electric windows, power door
locks, remote entry, and yes electric wipers. Interior is two-tone
leather bench seat and door panels. The headliner is suede leather
and wool carpet with custom floor mats with Ford V8 logo. For your
safety the bench seat does have seat belts.
No need to ever get under the dash! The fuse box, relays, battery,
stereo power amp, and rear air ride compressor is all conveniently
located under the seat. The Mustang II style independent front
suspension with power rack and pinion steering. Power front disc
brakes and rear drums is safe at any speed. Adjustable rear air
shocks and a Ford 9-inch rear end. Take a look under the tailgate a
polished stainless steel fuel tank. Power comes from a Corvette
fuel injected TPI 350ci that has been built .030 over with a
performance cam. Plus, larger fuel injectors, and computer
programmed to the new cam power curve. The 4L60E (700R)
transmission gives exactly when to shift by the computer and it
allows for more accurate conditions-based shifting. It also allows
for more than one set of shift points to be programmed into the
transmission for high performance modes. The '40 has the power and
attitude to back it up!
The modifications for the Ford were so well designed, integrated
and skillfully executed by the Jesse's Hot Rod team that the
untrained eye might miss them.
