Separating yourself from the pack has always been the foundation of the hot rod movement. Sure, there are a lot of belly button vehicles out there, but then there are other rides that help define a segment rather than just merely following it!
This Ford P.U. before you is the product of plenty of attention to detail and years of blood sweat and tears! This was personally built by Mark Spurlock Co-owner of "A&M Deluxe Customs, Inc". in Cornelius Oregon and the 1st edition was running in 2007 and has been driven and continually upgraded through the years. So far there is an estimated 2400 hours into the building of this fine Hot Rod. The thumping sound comes from a Chevy 366ci L96 engine that gulps air through a “Holley” Hi-Ram intake and dumps it out through handmade equal length S.S. headers and out through the 3” S.S. exhaust system. The tunes that this engine makes through the “Flowmasters” from an idle to 7000 RPM is amazing to say the least, and with the LS technology is starts, idles and revs every time! Another benefit is that it does all that without dripping and fuming any oil!
