Although Ford had been producing factory made pickup trucks since 1925, the changes made to the truck line in 1932 would set Ford apart from its competition and establish the auto maker's reputation as a builder of powerful and sturdy work vehicles. The Ford Motor Company proved its ability to adapt during the difficult post-Depression years of the 1930s. The innovative Ford trucks and cars made during this time managed to remain fairly priced - an act of flexibility that helped Ford survive the decade.
This is no ordinary Ford Pickup, this truck in Teal with the gray modern interior was meticulously built and every nook and cranny were checked over and over by the builder. Starting with the chassis, it was built by Cornhuskers out of Nebraska. The front suspension has chrome tubular dropped front axle, Vega steering box, with stainless or chrome parts not only for the great look but an extremely comfortable ride. The rear suspension is an 8'' Ford rear end completely rebuilt with Aldan adjustable coil over shocks with a pan hard sway bar. With all around disc brakes, aluminum dual master cylinder, and also an original style emergency brake. Powering this truck is a Ford 59 AB Flathead bored out to be a 256ci V8. With a Borg-Warner T-5 5-speed transmission with overdrive linked through a hydraulic clutch. Power is transmitted through an aluminum driveshaft, it has 14'' wheels and tires, '40 hubcaps with special removal tool, and trim rings. This truck has the beauty of the original with modern parts that make this is a hard to match ride.
