1938 Ford V8 Pick up

Ford made dramatic changes to their pick up trucks and commercial vehicles for 1938. The cabs and front sheet metal were completely redesigned for the first time since 1935. The nose had a characteristic oval grille, which was quickly nicknamed the “Barrel-Front”, a name that has stuck with these models even today. The hood now opened “alligator” fashion rather than from the side on previous models, and cabs had an updated instrument panel .

Unfortunately, 1938 was a bad year for the auto industry as a whole. Ford trucks were no exception, dropping from first place in the commercial segment to Chevrolet. On top of this, truck production sank to a low not seen since 1933. Accordingly, 1938 Ford trucks were reasonably scarce when new, and even rarer today.

This truck has been well restored and very mildly customised in a period fashion. The flathead V8 has been rebuilt and is well presented inside the engine bay. The truck retains its original style 3 speed manual floor change transmission. The truck retains its 6 volt electrical system but has been rewired for reliability during the restoration.

Outside the truck has been nicely repainted in a two-tone Red with Metallic Black guards. The truck features a side mounted spare tyre and the bed has been beautifully finished with polished timber and chrome slider strips. The truck sits slightly lower than stock over a set of wide white wall tyres and Red wire wheels.

Inside the truck has been restored to factory with the original bench seat recovered in black vinyl. While very subtle, the truck is slightly more plush than original featuring full length door trims and trimmed head liner. The floor has a factory style rubber mat with an aftermarket handbrake neatly placed on the floor. There are three tiny little gauges mounted under the dash to keep an eye on things. Airflow inside is assisted by the factory style opening cowl vent and wind out windscreen.

The truck has been well cared for and presents extremely well. These pick ups are rare in the US and very scarce here in Australia. All Ford pickups from the flathead era have a special charm that has kept them so popular among collectors.
