Magazine Featured, Fuel Inj. 383 Stroker V8, Frame Off Custom Build, A/C & More!
1940 Chevrolet Pickup
Ranked among Chevrolet's first truly modern light-duty trucks, the 1940-series vehicles offered more of everything – more comfort, more style, and more utility – than ever before. Unfortunately, precious few of these handsome workhorses survived today. This outstanding professionally-built example has been featured is numerous magazines and marks an exciting opportunity to own and enjoy this timeless classic today.
Outstanding power is delivered by a 383 cubic-inch stroker V8 based on an LT-1 engine topped by a set of aluminum cylinder heads, hooked to a GM 700R4 overdrive automatic transmission that drives a 3.73:1 Gear Ford 9-inch rear end. Goodies include Street & Performance valve covers, a serpentine pulley kit, A/C, power-steering, wiring harness, coolant overflow tank, and spark-plug wire separators. Exhaust is ejected through a set of Sanderson headers feeding a stainless-steel 2 ½-inch exhaust system with Edelbrock mufflers. Cooling is handled by a Be Cool radiator and electric fan.
The Chevy's suspension is thoroughly modernized, beginning with a boxed frame with hidden stainless-steel brake and fuel lines. A 5–inch Heidt's cross member, 2-inch dropped spindles, and Ridetech air bags and controls provide a wicked stance up front. The rear leaf-spring suspension is by Chassis Engineering and braking was vastly improved with a set of MP Brakes comprising 9-inch discs up front and drums out back. Fuel is delivered via a fuel tank provided by Tanks.
Finished in House of Kolor Blue Blood Red paint, the Chevy features numerous subtle modifications. Among them is a Pro Pick cargo bed, smoothed tailgate, and tonneau cover. The cargo bed features a White Pine wood-floor kit and stainless metal strips.
Krist Kustom Interiors beautifully retrimmed the interior in Cadillac Taupe leather and matching carpets. Dakota digital gauges, Ididit chrome steering column, Vintage Air A/C, Ball's power windows, a Ron Francis wiring harness, Lokar shifter, and CD stereo are among the many excellent updates. Rolling stock is provided by a set of Boyd Coddington 'New Wave' wheels measuring 17 inches front and 18 inches at the rear, mounted on Toyo tires. An outstanding professional build, this '40 Chevy is ready to roll!
Only 1,515 Miles Since Built
