This beautiful 1940 Ford Pickup is a far cry from the original work horse Henry Ford intended it to be.
The paint job has been nicely augmented by pin striping both on the hood and tailgate.
Although it has a bed to carry supplies, I don’t think it would be a good idea with the great paint job and excellent refurbished wood in the bed.
The cab is nicely appointed with the tan leather upholstery and custom gauges in the dash.
All in all, the truck is an outstanding example of a total restoration, and a fine representative of the CAL-R0DS stable of great cars.
