From the Manufacturer
The longest run in hot rod history has been the story of the rodder’s love for Fords. The ’40 Ford has been considered a perfect choice for a rod builder. It is a prime example of the trend of pick-up trucks and street rods with traditional custom detailing. Power is provided by the classic combination of a ‘48 V8 flathead engine with three carburetors, finned aluminum high-compression cylinder heads and a hot cam. As befits a traditional rod, the suspension is authentic “Henry Ford” with torque-type drive and transverse “buggy” springs. Modern brakes and parallel arm location on the front axle provide stopping and handling performance to match the power available from the rugged V8 engine with “Zephyr” gears.
