In '40, Ford began a truck modernization program that would influence truck designs for decades to come. The design team at Ford blended a single-piece hood, sculpted all-stainless steel grille and new sealed-beam headlamp units to create perhaps one of the best-looking Ford trucks of all time. The updated cab design also featured one-piece cowl top, roof and windshield pillar stamping, which included a fixed windshield complete with cowl-mounted wiper, a first by a major truck manufacturer.

The 1940 Ford 1-1/2 ton truck was powered by the venerable 85 horsepower “Flathead” V-8 engine. The popular 134-inch wheelbase Regular Stake model with “Ford Script” logo bed weighed just 4,641 lbs. Popular options included dual rear wheels and tires, auxiliary springs and a spare tire. This combination of performance, economy and durability guaranteed Ford a major portion of the medium-duty truck market for many years to come.
