1940 American Bantam Pickup
Completely Restored. None Better




We are happy to offer what is possibly the cutest pickup truck ever made. It can still fit two real sized people inside the cab. but to give an idea of its true scale. this 1100lb Bantam truck was delivered to our showroom in the bed of an F150 pickup. Finding a 1940 American Bantam Pickup is extremely rare as only 580 were originally manufactured. Production records show this is the first pickup produced with the round corner bed. You may see a more common coupé. but very few trucks have survived the last 70+ years. This pickup was a low miles excellent original example before it received a ground up restoration to a level rarely seen on this type of basic car. Every part was dismantled. restored. refinished or replaced. It even has a proper honeycomb radiator. The 750cc engine has been fully rebuilt with new pistons. undergone extensive machine work and upgrades to provide the most reliable oil system to the two main crankshaft. All brakes. transmission and differential have been treated to the same high quality workmanship. The body sheet metal is finished front and back with extra attention paid to obtain a smooth high quality finish that far exceeds what would have been a factory finish on a utility vehicle. While these little trucks have a utilitarian and functional look. the small details have an Art Deco look with a beveled glass interior mirror. oval gauges and interior trimmings including a headliner. This truck would be great as a business advertising vehicle or fun in town runabout. It would certainly fit in any collection. and you will find none better restored.
