Ask DJ Lyons: 1940 Ford Pick-Up Truck

1940 Ford Pick-Up Truck

Do you like vintage cars? If you have ever attended a car show, when was the first time and what did you think?

I really loved this black vintage truck. I think this is one of the cutest trucks I have ever seen. You can even view the shiny engine. What do you think? There is a comment section at the bottom of this hub if you would like to share your thoughts.

Check out its picture. You can even watch a short video of this pick-up truck by clicking 1940 FORD PICK-UP TRUCK. As you do, you can take a flight of fancy with me as to the early fate of this 1940 Ford Pick-Up Truck.

Let's imagine that this 1940 Ford Pick-Up Truck as feelings. This might be the story it would tell.

1940 Ford Pick-Up Truck: Hi, you can call me Blackie or Shiny Blackie. At least, I started out that way. I was shiny as all get-out the day my owner came to pick me up. He walked in, looked me over from all sides, checked my engine, started me up and listened to how I sounded, and kicked my tires. Ouch! I didn't like that part.

He finally decided to purchase me and take me home. I was so excited to start my adventurous life. I wondered what that life would be like.

It turns out that he was just a simple farmer. Oh, he had good intentions at first to keep me shiny like that first day. But he led such a busy life, that he just did not have the time.

He grew a lot of produce like tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, squash, beans, snap peas, and corn on the cob. His wife busied herself growing flowers of various types. Their son took care of the chickens and the rooster.

Every week, they would give me a shower and wash me all over. Then they would load up a bunch of the produce into my truck bed. The son would gather a basket of eggs. They would drive me to a farmer's market to sell their wares out of the back of my truck.

A couple of times a year, there would be a county fair. They would give me the best bath yet. Then they would load me up with the produce, a cage holding their best chicken, a cage holding the rooster, and pots holding the wife's prettiest flowers. They would then show off all their wares. Usually, they would come home with two or three blue ribbons. I liked to think that my pretty color and shape had something to do with that.

But as the years passed, they eventually traded me in for a more current pick-up truck. I was sad to see them go.

I had a series of owners. I like this last owner best. This owner is careful to keep me shiny and clean all the time - not just once a week. He also does not require me to haul dirt or produce. Instead, he proudly shows me off at vintage car shows like this one.

So I hoped you liked my story and that you liked me. Come back and see me sometime at another vintage car show. It was so nice to make your acquaintance. Bye for now.

That is the end of my Flight of Fancy. I hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. In the meantime, here are some videos you can watch of other vintage Ford cars and trucks below.

The '70 Boss 429 Mustang showed just how important the high performance image was to Ford at the dawn of the 1970's. In sharp contrast to the well balanced Boss 302, Ford built the 429 with only one thing in mind - brute power. And moving from 0-60 mph in 6.8 seconds was all the proof anyone needed.
