    1940 Ford Pickup by FastLane Rod Shop

After many months of work FastLane Rod Shop unveiled the DuPont HotHues, a customized 1940 Ford Pickup. The rear 3/4 shot on a ’40 is pretty neat. You can also see the tonneu cover - it’s set within the bed for a cleaner look. The white brightens things up a bit.

Compare to the older version of other manufacture, this Ford pickup really stand out. Just look at the interior and the engine, quite though and so masculine I would say.

Haha, nice car – 385hp and it will zoom in on the highways. Timmy is right, it’s good to see old cars restored to suit the newer generation.

Isn’t amazing to see this old generation Ford by new generation. Quiet impressive.

I know that it includes a ’40 Ford four-speed truck trans fitted with a heavy-duty 11-inch clutch.
