This 1963 Ford F-100 has the cool look of a classic flatbed
delivery truck. But as you start to notice the high-gloss finish,
you realize that this is a fresher restoration/recreation. It's
going to make you want to dig deeper into the details. That's where
you see the custom interior, upgraded suspension, and seriously
powerful small block under the hood.
This Ford was initially built as a tribute to a former Shell Oil
employee, but even if you prefer Exxon, you're insanely attracted
to the level of quality throughout the build. The two-tone yellow
and red utilize the F-100's sheet metal creases as natural dividing
lines. And the modern clearcoat application has a nice gloss that
shows off the quality cab panels. The grille, bumpers, and wheels
are painted a dark charcoal. So that they have the kind of dark
attitude that's right for an industrial truck, but there's also a
metallic element in the paint so that it pops with the right hint
of flair as another reminder that this is a custom pickup. The
Shell decals go with the delivery graphics on the side of the bed.
And speaking of the bed, you have an awesome stake-side flatbed
look done in full real lumber. Not only will you love the look of
the stained glossy wood, but also there's plenty of Shell
memorabilia for the rear. Those two oil drums are even used for
The Shell theme continues in the fresh interior. The red bench seat
looks bold, and the Shell logo is stitched into the center. Fresh
carpeting, rugged floor mats, smooth door panels, and a nice dash
with pad complete the right fundamentals. As a true cruiser, you
get upgraded driving music with an AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth.
And it's made to be a good driver with an upgraded steering wheel,
a tilt column, and full gauges integrated into the classic readout
The engine bay has a tidy style that even shows off more of the
two-tone. At the heart is a 302 cubic-inch performance crate motor.
This V8 is said to be rated at 375 horsepower right out of the box,
and it currently has aluminum heads, a Holley four-barrel
carburetor, an Edelbrock aluminum intake, and ceramic-coated
headers. There are also good supporting components, like a
serpentine belt system, upgraded brackets, an electric fan, and an
aluminum radiator. This is some strong power, and the X-pipe dual
exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers love to announce it with a wicked
rumble. The stout C6 three-speed automatic transmission feeds into
a Ford 9-inch rear end to properly get the power to the ground. And
as you check out the full package, the upgraded Crown Vic
independent front end, fresh suspension components, power steering,
power brakes, front discs, and modern tires make this powerful
pickup an all-around confident cruiser.
Sharp, fresh, distinct, and absolutely powerful - this custom Ford
truck is a comprehensive build that's irresistible inside and out.
