This 1940 Ford Pick-up has been the subject of a total restoration and presents in superb condition. All the duties have been paid and she is registered in the UK and is supplied with a V5C registration document. The 239 cubic inch Ford Mercury engine has been bored out and is now an estimated 260 cubic inch and the transmission is a three-speed manual. Twin Stromberg carburettors sit proudly on this V8 engine and the exhaust system emits a superb noise, certainly commensurate with a big American V8. The performance is brisk and stopping is via a 1947 set of Ford drum brakes and a GM master cylinder. During the rebuild of this Ford Pick-up a Kwik wiring harness was fitted, together with an aluminium radiator to ensure adequate engine cooling. Sitting slightly lower at the front and with two inches chopped off the roof, aesthetically this is a very handsome Ford, the flat bed was shortened by 19 inches to keep the lines in proportion. The vendor is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic regarding such cars as well as being exceedingly fastidious. This rare Ford Model A Pick-up is of the highest quality.
