It has torsion bar front suspension, with a leaf spring rear suspension. The rear end is an 8.8" Ford unit with a new Ford Racing Trac-Loc and 3.73 gears. The rear has triangulated adjustable top link bars. Drive shaft was custom built and balanced. Transmission is a brand new Ford Racing T5Z built by Astor Performance transmissions in Florida.

Intake is an Edelbrock Performer, and carb is a rebuilt Autolite 4100 1:12 or 600 cfm. Valve covers are ceramic coated fabbed aluminum units and the water neck is a pivot style by CV racing. The truck has a rear mounted radiator. The radiator is a new copper unit from a Diesel Suburban. It is plumbed with 2.5' copper pipe. Fans are OEM from a Chevy Lumina. Has catch can as well. The cooling system has a 180 on / 190 off relay and it works flawlessly. Never has been over 190. All joints are soldered and pipe is braced very well. Electric fuel pump, fuel block, fuel pressure gauge, and red fuel line with two fuel filters.
All wiring was done with a Rebel Wiring harness. Headlights, taillights, blinkers, interior lights work. Hi/Lo beam selector. Speedometer is a restored 40 Ford unit, but we have not ordered a cable to adapt it to the T5. Tachometer and Comp Rev limiter are currently unplugged. Pedal assembly is from a Foxbody Mustang.

The truck drives great and gets tons of attention. Using the later model Mazda/Nissan chassis allowed the use of disc brakes and adjustable torsion bars. All steering bushings and dust caps are new. New brake lines front to back. Having the rear radiator setup has kept the front of the truck cleaner and has been maintenance free. Fuel mileage is ever pretty good! This is a great truck. We build hotrods for a living and this one is really cool. It has an original door logo from Mississippi Materials Company ( concrete company ) and has their phone number as well. Feel free to ask any question. Bid to win a one-of-a-kind hot rod. 40s are tough to find! PICS coming soon and I will take any others that are needed. Delivery is possible for a fee. I have sold to Austria, Australia, Switzerland, Canada, and England; so I will do what I can to help. 500.00 deposit required within 48 hrs of auction end.
Update. The truck has a kill switch mounted on the grill support up front as well as a front mounted battery. New front glass and rear glass with new seals.
