Peachy 1941 Ford Pickup Needs to Be Set Free

1941 Ford Pickup

Classic Ford pickup dubbed ‘Deliverance’ is just waiting for you to liberate it from its previous owner’s sins.

Sometimes, you see things that just can’t be unseen. Take this 1941 Ford pickup, for example. Once you lay eyes upon its peach-coated exterior, you just can’t forget it. Whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing, of course, is up to you. But at least the pinkish hue only covers the top portion of the vintage Ford pickup. Underneath lies a much more agreeable Cobalt silver color. But then, the more and more you look, the more “interesting” tidbits you discover.

At the very least, that peachy paint treatment is what caught our eye while perusing The Collector Car Network classifieds. But then we noticed that this pickup has a nickname: “Deliverance.” Now, whether the owner is conjuring up the very definition of the word or the classic 1972 film by the same name, we don’t know. But we do know that the owner expressed his freedom on the many details that lie within this build.

One of those interesting details are the seats, sourced from a Nissan Maxima, of all places. But it’s what lies under the hood that’s bound to get the masses more wound up than a bunch of backwoods locals who spot a group of city-dwellers lurking on their property. And that, friends, is a Corvette-sourced LS engine. On the bright side, there is a 9-inch Ford diff out back. And the rest of the truck features nice touches like an Air Ride setup and a chopped/extended cab.

So while the “unique” paint job and engine choice are bound to stir up the natives, we say this Ford pickup deserves to be set free. A little bit of paint work and a drivetrain swap is all that stands before it and liberation. No additional plot line needed!
