1940 Ford Steampunk Custom Hot Rod Rat Patina

1940 Ford Steampunk Pickup Truck. A Montana original customized hotel baggage truck. Heavy Iron plate work throughout. Awesome Paint and Patina! Flathead Ford engine starts and runs strong. It starts with a mere push of the button. No complicated start procedure. You push the button and it fires to life. Custom extra long heavy metal exhaust diffuser gives the perfect flathead rumble while being refined and not loud. Large Military fuel tank with brass cap. Extreme Montana arctic heater package with “Super Deluxe” cab heater and industrial defrost. Customized iron dash appointments.

This truck started life as a U.S. Military truck just before WWII. After the war, it was purchased in 1946 by the Luxurious Hotel Finlen. This is the finest hotel in Montana visited by folks like JFK and Lindberg. It was used as a baggage truck to carry luggage from the Butte, Montana train station to the Finlen Hotel among various other portaging duties. The luggage handler also cared for and greatly customized the truck into a piece of iron sculpture. Stored for 30+ years, this would be a “barn find” if it didn’t start and run awesome like the day it was parked. Brakes do need bled or other attention. 4-speed transmission shifts and clutches good. Military Aircraft style bucket seats. Heavy duty matts. Iron plate seat mounts. Please see pictures for condition.
