1942 Ford Other Pickups -- Description

You don't see many 75 year old vehicles on the road these days but the durability and simplicity of Ford's pickups means they are still going strong. With the outbreak of WWII Ford halted the production of civilian vehicles but not before a short run of 1942 models were produced which means this 1942 Pickup is a rare breed. Finished in an eye catching shade of teal blue with black fenders and running boards satin grey trim and bumpers and white painted steel wheels this truck stands out. Purcha...sed a few years back the current owner installed an all new bed with brand new wood liner and updated the paint and trim. The bed has a new tailgate and all of the lighting works. The rear of the frame was revised and cleaned up when the bed was installed and the truck has new floors as well as new cab mounts. The truck has four wheel hydraulic brakes as well as brand new tires. The engine is a 221cid "flathead" V8 engine that was rebuilt in the past and appears to have a new starter as well as an electric fan. The engine starts up will and is mated to a 4-speed manual without synchromesh. The transmission is old school but the truck is more than happy to start out in 3rd gear with the torquey flathead providing adequate thrust. The cab is very nice with good seats clean glass and good trim. All instruments are working apart from the speedometer which isn't too big of deal because this truck isn't a speed demon. A lot of work has been put into this truck and a whole folder full of photographs and receipts is provided by the current owner. This is a very solid running truck which is for someone who wants a cool toy or someone who wants a good starting point to being a high end restoration. Rare and eye catching this durable truck will keep on trucking for many years to come. To see over 80 photos of this car including under carriage please visit our website
