Description

The '40 Ford is a modified drag racing version of the 1940 Ford Pickup. It was designed by Phil Riehlman and debuted in the 1998 First Editions. It has been used numerous times since its conception in several mainline and premium series, and notably as a Treasure Hunt in 2002. Phil Riehlman's initials can be found on the base.

The casting was modified in 2022; the casting now features a post-post design as opposed to a tab-post design, the snorkel air intake being of a simpler design and cast into the body and the rear wing being cast as part of the body as opposed to part of the interior piece. Phil Riehlman's initials have also been removed from the base.
