'El Chueco' is this Radical, No Expense Spared Build 1940 Chevrolet Custom Hot-Rod Pickup finished in Blue Metallic with a Blue and White vinyl interior. Powered by a monstrous 472c.i. Cadillac V8 that was factory rated at 375hp/525lb-ft of torque and back backed by a TH400 automatic transmission. This is no ordinary pickup. Sitting lower than most cars and producing power and noise seen in race cars, this thing is, quite simply, A Beast! The Blue Metallic paint alone is eye-catching, but the extra curb-appeal added to this custom truck will blow you away. Nicknamed El Chueco and sporting a look you won't see anywhere else, this truck is everything your imagination could think of and more.The bodywork boasts custom bright blue metal flake paint with hand-done flames and pinstriping, shaved handles, mirrors and bumpers, and it features a custom nose with open engine bay, which is fully matched to the rest of the truck right down to the pinstriped Cadillac air cleaner and color-matched engine block. The customized bed houses a stainless fuel tank and sits on a bespoke, box section rear frame. The front end received the classic hot rod treatment with dropped spindles, disc brakes, and inverted leaf spring, while the rear suspension is upgraded with coil springs and adjustable air shocks.This rest of the truck features; steel and fiberglass build, 10-bolt rear end, medium rise intake manifold, Edelbrock carburetor, custom headers, chrome American Racing 5-spoke wheels, custom bed with stainless fuel tank, custom front-end sheet metal, pop-out windscreen, killer girlie interior door handles, '60s-style American mag wheels with wide whites and cheater slicks on the back, custom Old School blue and white two-tone interior with a '40 Ford dash and Ed Roth-inspired tall shifter, '59 Eldorado tail lights, pop-out windscreen, and power brakes.Upon its 2010 completion this truck was accepted to and shown in the prestigious 51st Fresno Autorama, and it was featured in the coverage of that show in the magazines, Street Rodder and Custom Classic Trucks.For more information on this sensational Custom 1940 Chevrolet Hot-Rod Pickup or any of our 200+ high-performance, exotic, special interest and collectible cars and trucks always in our inventory, please contact one of our friendly and knowledgeable sales consultants or always feel free to drop by our Bellevue, WA Park Place Ltd campus - where we have over 40,000 sq ft of indoor showrooms filled with the finest cars.
