Gateway Classic Cars of San Antonio/Austin is happy to present this newly done 1940 Ford Pickup. Finished in a glossed matte black exterior with color matched running boards & bumpers, very nice brightwork, cream colored 15"/16" staggered wheels with the classic chrome "V8" dog dish center caps & a newer set of wide white walls, this Ford retains it's classic styling with just the right amount of hot-rod looks! Powered by a well-dressed Chevrolet 350 CID V8 and teamed up to a 700R4 automatic transmission, this old Ford is definitely highway ready. The engine bay glistens like a gem, showing of the chromed billet serpentine assembly, chrome Chevrolet valve covers, polished chrome A/C compressor, water pump & alternator. The Edelbrock aluminum intake and Edelbrock carb are feeding the SBC 350 and the long tube headers are running through a custom exhaust with Magnaflow mufflers. One look at the build quality shows just how much time & money actually went into it. The undercarriage continues to show the build quality as well. A custom fabbed chassis and front cradle, a new front suspension with tubular A-arms, control arms, all new bushings, 4-wheel disc brakes, drive shaft loop and frame connecting rails holding in the coil overs & the Ford 9" rear end make this one bad little '40! The camel-colored interior nicely contrasts the black exterior as the doors open, showing off the custom door inserts with machined handles, pedals, the modern buckets, the updated gauge cluster and the high-boy shifter. Even the roof & rear window deck of the cab are completely finished. This is a nicely built, ready to roll custom 1940 that will easily be a show winner!
