1940 Ford Pickup of George Poteet by FastLane Rod Shop

(from FastLane Rod Shop) George bought this truck several years back on the Power Tour. He put plenty of enjoyable miles on it, making several updates to it along the way. The black primer with the flames really made for a cool ride. He decided that it was time for a quick redo and some paint We pulled the TPI/700r4 and replaced it with a FastBurn 385hp crate motor with a 5 speed. We're using a Classic Instruments gauge cluster similiar to the one in his 5 window which will really compliment the black and white tuck and roll interior. Dupont HotHues gold with some cream and black stripping will top this little truck off! It was out on the road for the 2005 rodding season racking up plenty of miles!
