Danville man’s 1940 Ford pickup took four years to restore

Ford Motor Co. has been building trucks for 105 years, dating back to the Model T days. Starting in 1908, coach builders who saw the potential of motorized trucks about nine years before Henry Ford introduced a one-ton chassis that he called the Model TT, pricing it at $600 (about $14,420 today), almost double the price of the Model T chassis. This new truck had a stronger frame and 124-inch wheelbase but still used the same 20-horsepower, four-cylinder engine as the Model T car.
