The screaming orange paint isn’t subtle but when you build something that looks like this, you really want to get noticed. This is not some fiberglass replica but an all-steel 1940 Ford pickup that’s been skillfully and tastefully modified to create a show-stopping machine. The ’40 Ford pickup borrowed the ’39 Ford passenger car front end, and there just aren’t many better ways to start than that. A lot of the chrome was shaved, including the door handles, but things like the body moldings, awesome teardrop headlights, and that V-shaped grille all remain in place. The finish is spectacular, with a deep shine that represents cubic dollars and enough man-hours that someone could have funded their retirement on it. A hard-shell tonneau cover converts the bed into the world’s biggest trunk and a custom rear roll pan incorporates the exhaust tips and recessed license plate holder. It’s been driven 3337 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. The completely custom interior is tasteful and beautifully built. Bucket seats wrapped in tan leather make it as comfortable as your daily driver, while a fabricated center console adds practicality with a pair of cup holders and courtesy lights. The dash is still factory stock, but it’s been filled with Classic Instruments gauges in a woodgrained fascia that looks completely appropriate here. Colorado Customs supplied a billet wheel that matches the rolling stock and all the creature comforts are included: A/C, tilt column, power windows, and an AM/FM/CD stereo in its own overhead console. The stereo’s amplifier is showcased between the seats and has been painted to match the bodywork, and there’s a thumping subwoofer just underneath. Seat belts are a great idea from a safety standpoint and you’ll find the FAST fuel injection controller neatly stashed inside the center console.
