Car description

Thank you for checking out our auction!

This is a jaw dropping street rod that will leave you and everyone who sees it in awe. This 1940 Ford is 100% steel and built with only top shelf, name brand products.

As you can see, this truck didn't start out its' build as some barn-find or rotted out vehicle from a farmers field. This build started with an impeccably restored original 1940 Ford. As most hot rodders know, the '40 Ford pickup truck used the gorgeous front end of the '39 Ford passenger car. The vehicle was painstakingly disassembled by a seasoned hot rod builder.

Chrome parts were all packaged up and sent out for re-plating while the frame was delivered to none other than Martz Chassis in Bedford, PA where it was professionally boxed for strength, new coil-over suspension was installed front and rear, dual stainless exhaust was added as well as a 20 gallon stainless steel fuel tank. Then it was all broken down again and prepped for a show quality paint job that matches the body. The chassis now rides on staggered Budnik Custom billet aluminum wheels, which are fitted with 205/65/15 up front and 255/70/15 out back. The wheel/tire combo tuck under these smooth fenders perfectly for that bitchin' look.

The flathead ford was replaced for a tried and true 383 Chevy complete with Corvette heads, Sanderson headers, 4 barrel carb, and a mild street cam. This powerhouse was mated to a 3 speed automatic controlled by an authentic Gennie Shifter. A bullet-proof 9 inch Ford rear-end resides out back to put the power down.

Did I mention the all-steel body? Well, while the chassis was off getting prepped, the body was sent to The Hot Rod Garage, Inc. in Denton, MD. You can check out their amazing work at www.thehotrodgarage.com . Once there, the steel body was carefully gone over by their fine craftsmen and any imperfections were addressed. Afterwards, the body was reunited with the chassis and prepped for the amazing purple paint job that you see here. It was so eye catching that the owner also had his wife's Chevy SSR repainted to match (you can see it in the background of one of the pics).

When you're doing a build at this level, only the best products available are used and this vehicle is a textbook example of that. Ron Francis was contracted to custom make the wiring harness for this ride and his fuse box now resides in the glove box.

The rest of the interior is equally as impressive as the exterior with custom leatherwork done in white by The Hot Rod Garage. The dash was replaced with a custom unit that houses a new tilt/power steering column, push button start, custom wrapped billet steering wheel, and all new VDO gauges.

It has only been driven 5,500 miles since it was built, so there might be one or two tiny signs of use, but if you want a vehicle that can drive cross-country and still win a big trophy at just about any show, this is definitely it.

Incredibly well built and a beautiful piece of art to look at, this gorgeous Ford delivers the goods in a style all its' own. Perhaps the best thing about this vehicle is that it is titled as a regular vehicle, so there are no restrictions as to when you can drive and enjoy this truck. Just get in, push the start button, and go!
