The original and functioning windshield opening crank is center dash mounted. The manual transmission floor shift lever is easily reachable at knee position. The original glass exhibits slight aging but is intact with no chips, cracks, or brakeage. The roomy bed is now lined in wood and features an easily accessible fire extinguisher. Wide white-wall tires are mounted on steel wheels and finished with Chevrolet logo hubcaps. The 1940 Chevrolet half-ton pickup saw a larger nameplate, sealed beam headlights, parking lights on front fender tops, a windshield that could be opened slightly for cab ventilation, decorative metal strips on the dash and a slightly larger pick up bed. In 1940, 194,038 pickups were produced. The 1940 Chevrolet pickups were powered by a cast-iron, six cylinder, inline, normally aspirated, liquid-cooled engine developing 78hp from it's 215ci displacement and a single barrel carburetor. The front mounted engine drove the rear wheels through a three-speed manual transmission with a single-dry-plate clutch. The front axle and the live rear drive axle hung from longitudinal semi-elliptic steel leaf-springs attached to a steel ladder frame. Single-acting hydraulic shock absorbers were installed at each wheel. The trucks had a torsion-bar front stabilizer that bolted to the front springs. The pickups used semi-floating spiral hypoid rear axle. The 1940 Chevrolet trucks had four-wheel manual hydraulic 11-inch drum brakes and worm-and-sector manual steering. ***If you are viewing this on Facebook Marketplace, be sure to visit our website to view all photos.
