1936 Ford Pickup
Let me take you down 'cause I'm going to ..Strawberry
Fields...Nothing is real and nothing to get hung about, Strawberry
For consignment this low hanging fruit in the form of a 1936 Ford
Pickup truck. All fixed up and looking hot rodded snappy, sporting
a chopped top, fine steel panels, and an interior that emulates the
exterior colors only in cloth. This custom ride can haul the goods,
or haul in the trophies as it is truly a one of a kind!
All straight steel with a few wider gaps at the doors, particularly
on the passenger's side for this 36 pickup. In all its front shield
style grille, fender mounted headlights on stalks, and harmoniously
curving fenders and running boards styling. It all came together to
create this custom truck. To state the obvious, it is immersed in
light ambrosia and dark strawberry (pink and red) paint with a few
accenting lightning style bolts in sky blue and dark pink which
delineate the strawberry from the ambrosia on the cowled hood and
chopped cab. The hood has been shaved of any ornaments, the grille
painted black and a shiny bumper frames the curved fenders in
front. 2 small turn signal lights encased squared off bezels are
seen just above the bumper on the inner of each front fender.
Moving rearward, a red bed covering in vinyl is nice and tight and
protects a beautiful red cedar bed and the pickup box sides which
are all straight and rust free. On back just below the tailgate, is
a custom fabricated rear roll pan which houses the horizontal
taillights. Overall paint is nice with just a few chips where some
metal surfaces are in contact during normal operation of this
truck, or a stone may have jumped in the way while it was rolling
down the back roads. 15-inch polished Boyd Coddington Wheels are
wrapped in 205/70R15's in front and 235/60R15's on back
A complete custom redux using strawberry and ambrosia broadcloth
and more stitched in lightning bolts for the door panels. A cloth
pull with billet style mounts as well as a small button for the
power windows are within the strawberry field (Tongue in cheek!).
Inside late model styled buckets with high backs and open headrests
are donned in strawberry bolsters and some pleated tan canvas
looking but much softer inserts. A rally style Grant steering wheel
fronts a custom blue LED digital dash which is within a billet
aluminum long oval with central circle instrument bezel. This is
then inserted into a mauve metal dash which has retained the
original panels just modified for the new instruments and an
aftermarket AM/FM/CD digital Jensen radio. On the bottom of the
dash is a broadcloth panel not unlike the remaining covering for
this interior and it houses A/C and heater vents and some billet
cast aluminum knobs and pulls. Speakers are mounted throughout the
cab and are within more broadcloth coverings for the remainder of
the interior and headliner. On the floor is a Lokar shifter and
chromed parking brake lever all in a field of gray carpeting. Rock
Under the cowled hood is a 302ci V8 topped with a single 4-barrel
carburetor and a C4 3-speed automatic transmission is on back
throwing power to a Ford 9-inch rear axle. Can you say strawberry
Underneath we see a restored frame, no rusted some new struts on
the X framing in the middle. Headers from the mill feed stainless
piping and glass pack style mufflers. A Mustang II front suspension
is now providing the ride and leaf springs are still on the back.
Power disc brakes on front and power drums on back.
In short...cake, (Tongue still in cheek), she fires right up and
drives very nicely. Fantastic acceleration, good handling and
smooth shifting for the auto tranny. I noticed the brake pedal is a
bit soft and the radio did not function.
Plant the seeds with the significant other as this custom truck is
definitely a one of a kind creation and color which pushes the
edge, but looks great on this truck. A nice engine, smooth
transmission, and a stunning cedar bed to go with all that pink and
red it works perfectly. Hot rodding that can definitely butter your
bread, and slather on the JAM!
