Patina trucks are usually about a worn-in respect like an elder
that has earned the esteem of others. But once you see the
nitrous-ready fuel-injected LS-based power of this 1955 Ford F-100
Restomod, you'll think it earned its patina from winning every
blacktop power battle around.
If you love patina, then this presentation looks like gold to you.
It appears like every inch of the body is well weathered, and at
the same time, it all fits together well with a very complete
appearance. But this one also is never trying to just pass for a
fresh barn find. The crystal clear headlines and lowered stance
announce its true custom style. And speaking of the stance, it has
the ideal style with 15-inch drag wheels setup with skinny tires up
front and seriously wide ones where it all meets the road in the
rear...and all the rubber is from Mickey Thompson. So it's a true
For the same reason you love the patina on the outside, you'll
enjoy the rat rod style look inside. Classic van seats, deleted
side glass, and a Chevy steering wheel has the look of components
from around the garage. And so it gives the right old-school
personal build feel. But then you see how there were larger
investments in the right components. That's why the simple interior
also has proper insulation, a tilt steering column, and power
steering. Plus, there's an awesome reverse pattern shifter from the
folks at M&M Transmission and the Holley EFI touchscreen is
right in front so you never miss any info.
Under the hood is a mean powerhouse. It's a 5.3-liter LS-based
Vortec V8 topped with a Holley electronic fuel injection system.
And an Edelbrock intake. And those reversed headers not only add
power, but also we bet it has you thinking about creating an
awesome turbo machine (after all, there's also a Pulse Leash box in
the cab.) And this setup is also nitrous-ready! There are even the
right supporting pieces like a newer radiator with electric fan, a
separate trans cooler, and an Optima red top battery. As you look
underneath, you'll see a reinforced S10 frame, and you don't even
need the undercarriage photos to see all the improvements in the
rear end. The deleted bed floor is now used for added bracing, the
fuel cell, and holding the wide tires. Plus, you can really see the
upgraded four-link ear with diagonal brace, Perfect Launch diff
cover, and adjustable coilovers. The TH400 three-speed has a manual
valve body for proper control over the motor, and four-wheel disc
brakes give you proper control over the speed.
If you want a quarter-mile machine that looks like it has earned
every one of its victories, you know this powerful patina pickup is
the one. Call today!!!
