The Perfect '40 Ford



There are builds, and there are builds. Some people focus on power, some on stance, some on the transcending of genres... Troy Trepanier's Rad Rides ethos is quality of detail; starting with a project car - this 1940 Ford, say - and rebuilding it from first principles as if it had been artfully massaged into life by craftsmen rather than mass-produced in a factory.
The exquisite detailing on this car speaks for itself: the repeating 'V8' logo in the subtle side-stripes; the material trimming on the foldaway roof; the nose slanted back from its upright origins; the retro-futuristic interior that's so perfect, it looks like it's been Photoshopped into reality; the sublimely shiny supercharger and suspension components. This is, without a hint of hyperbole, one of the best cars ever built. Full stop.
