ODOMETER
1940 Ford Custom Pickup Truck

Modified L-head eight-cylinder engine, three-speed manual transmission, live axle suspension with transverse leaf springs, and four-wheel hydraulically-actuated drum brakes. Wheelbase: 112 in. The 1940 Ford is arguably one of the most attractive models made in both passenger car and pickup truck form. This example started as an excellent, original two-owner vehicle complete with the original bill of sale from 1940. The body was removed and taken down to bare metal, found to be in excellent condition and finished in Royal Blue with black fenders. The interior is wonderful, with upholstery completed in two shades of grey material, and it further sports an Alpine AM/FM/CD system with Kicker speakers. The bed and hardware, as well as a custom travel trunk, are finished in oak and several coats of Velspar varnish. A vintage Canadian flathead block was sourced, ported, and relieved, and it features an Isky cam, Edelbrock hi-comp polished aluminum heads, new Stromberg 97 carburetor, Mallory ignition, and a 3.78 rear end. A 12-volt system was implemented with a 50 amp alternator and all new Stewart-Warner gauges. With custom speed equipment, loads of hand-applied pinstripes, and a show-ready finish, this retro 1940 Ford truck lacks nothing.

FACT

Because, well, why not...?

The original Star Wars premiered on just 32 screens across the U.S. in 1977. This was to produce buzz as the release widened to more theaters.
