1937-1940 vintage Fords remain among the most popular generations of Fords for Hot Rod enthusiasts to modify. This 1940 Ford pickup, originally listed in July 2021 on Craigslist in Huntington, New York (Long Island), balances the fine line between classic Hot Rod and the modern Rat Rod interpretation. Featuring a Chevy 350 small block and front disc brakes, the private seller is currently asking $25,500 for their Ford. Comparing that price against the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool for a stock example reveals the private seller has their pickup priced between this guide’s #3 “Good” estimate of $20,200 and its #2 “Excellent” appraisal of $34,800.
