Roy Andrews

1940 Ford Pickup



When Roy Andrews purchased the 1940 Ford Pickup it was truly a “basket case.” It was minus engine and transmission and the fenders were in the bed of the truck. The truck had been sitting in a field at a small airport in Imperial Valley, California.

The project took five-and-a-half years to complete. It now has a 5.0 Ford “Crate Motor” and a C-4 transmission and a 2400 Stall Converter. The motor is carbureted with an Edelbrock Manifold and a Holley Carburetor. The rear end is from a Mustang and has Coil Over Suspension.

The front end is from a 1974 Mustang II with power assisted disc brakes and power rack & pinion steering. It has a tilt steering column with a Grant Steering Wheel.

The gauges are electronic by VDO and the music comes from a Pioneer AM-FM CD. The music is pushed through four Pioneer speakers.

The bed has aluminum Diamond Plate.

The ceramic coated headers push the exhaust through Flowmaster 50 Series mufflers.
