Tim Morton's 1940 Ford
1940 Ford Pickup owned by Tim Morton of Kingsburg, California. Morton owned the truck in 1980, and later owner Austin Thornton of Fresno, California was able to trace him thanks to an old registration that came with the car. Austin bought the truck in July of 2020, and the guy he bought it from said that it was in one of those 1950s hot rodder magazines. He didn't know which one. The seller had bought it from a farm auction in Fresno in 2000, and when Austin got it, modifications included a sectioned and channeled body with raised fenders. The original hood was missing, and a stock, unsectioned one, was sitting on it. It featured a Chevy bed and fenders. The floor was raised and the suspension and body were painted a turquoise metallic. The frame, firewall, and inner fenders were painted dark green metallic.
