How cool is this old school Pick Up truck!

Arguably one of the best styled Ford Trucks to ever come out of the USA , the 40 model Pick Up had a really nice front end treatment , and this one has the desirable style side well deck.

Considering the life these trucks must have lived its surprising many have even survived, but this one somehow managed to and has lived to tell her tale.

A recent import this old truck is now as good as its probably been for a long time, the engine has had a very decent going over by a well respected local Side Valve specialist and is performing beautifully, and running like clockwork.

There are some receipts accompanying this truck outlining quite a lot of work which has been carried out recently here in NZ, and the engine work is well documented, recording the engine as a high performance 1944 258 cubic inch unit, which is believed to have a stage 4 cam and mild porting according to the receipts.

The truck itself has clearly had some money spent on it, with new wiring etc, and she starts easily and runs and drives as would be expected for a good old flattie.

The body and frame which was clearly solid enough to gain compliance in 2019 still presents well over all, and although the body will have had work being an old worker, it still presents well all things considered.

The paintwork is finished in a flat satin yellow so is far from the perfect finish, however it presents well enough and can be used as Henry originally intended it to be and thoroughly enjoyed without the fear of damaging a big dollar paint job.

The interior is functional and practical and has the minimum to make it usable with a recently recovered seat taking pride of place.

A good old truck that would be hard to find today, this one would be a great promotional vehicle to throw some signage at and put to work as she won't be afraid to haul a few things around the yard for you, or a great basis for a restoration to a mint truck or mild Hot Rod if that's your thing, because most of the hard works been done.

Well worth a look if your after a good old pick up with a lot of character, far from perfect but a good honest old truck that will respond well to further tinkering .
