‘40 Fords are one of the all time best looking pickups.

Why can’t these people stick to ruining ugly cars?

I think because of supply.   Hot Rods are usually not this crowd's cup of tea but in the big picture there is a surplus of 1940 Ford trucks, and you can almost build one from a catalog.  The chassis on this one is likely not original, we don't know but I suspect the cab was missing - again you can buy one from a catalog - and it might have had the cab but not much else.  Most of what you see here is fabricated and he likely did not use much of a 1940 Ford truck to begin with.

Looking at the first picture, it appears to me that they've actually managed to change the angle of the way the headlight is mounted. Doesn't it appear that it's aimed slightly off to the outside?

I see it too.  


This truck is the poster child for the recently retired harangued husband who worked 30 + years for the "man" and has a nice home for the family and all the kids went or are going to college on 'pops' and now it's time to drop some coin and have fun, without the work.  


Having said that, THIS trucks custom styling is really bad, and I think the seller will continue to enjoy it. Or not....

Since we are already discussing the SS Minnow, I have to ask the eternal question:


Ginger, or MaryAnne?


Back to the original topic: customs by definition risk appealing to a very small number of people. I have seen worse, but I wouldn’t pay much for this one. I’d rather have a banged up, somewhat rusty original.
