Buying a running hot rod truck is a great way to enjoy the hobby while you improve on the truck.After purchasing any truck the desire to “make it your own” is overwhelming, but the first thing we did after purchasing our 1940 Ford pickup was give it a thorough safety inspection, which turned up several items that needed our immediate attention.The truck also had a mid-’80s GM tilt column that looked too big for the interior and finally the gauge cluster was filled with ’80s-style Stewart-Warner gauges. The cab makeover would be in the style of a mid-’60s hot rod truck.

The polished stainless steel column and associated dash and floor mounts provide the perfect look for our vintage interior.After the brake line issues and exhaust problems were addressed, we enjoyed driving the truck for a while but then the itch to change things just had to be scratched.Actually, after cleaning up the suspension, brakes and motor we did a complete repaint.We sourced a new ignition key from Ron Francis Wiring and with help from their tech staff had the wire colors converted from the base of the column to the new switch.The new switch is now mounted in the dashboard to the left of the steering column.The column is small and the chrome-like finish is perfect for a ’60s hot rod truck.
