This 1931 Ford Pickup is a custom-bodied streetrod, but you already
knew that from just one glance. That's because the mean color
theme, meaner stance, and rumbling V8 on display make this unique
and intimidating. But as you dig deeper, you'll see plenty of extra
details that make this an even cooler cruiser.
Matte black is always a great way to deliver pure hot rod flair. It
shows off the clean lines of the steel body. In fact, the body
looks extra clean because the cab is a custom hand-built piece that
gives you smoother lines than we often see. There are even nice
details like suicide doors. There are plenty of classic Model
T-style details on display like the bright grille and windshield
overhang. Plus, the rear is pure rustic cool with the full barn
wood style stake bed and a metal lockbox against the cab. But you
know this build is a true hot rod with the Rocket Racing wheels
with an intimidating stance on Mickey Thompson tires. And we love
the look of the green on the motor that makes it look distinctive
while saving the polish for the cool side pipes.
The interior has the right custom hot rod cruiser style. It starts
with the seat. You get the classic bench, but it has plenty of
cushioning and seat belts to give you the right added comfort. The
four-spoke steering wheel has a simple/classic style but with a
smaller diameter for better grip. The color shifter is a Hurst Indy
unit for a crisp action, and the dash is dominated by distinctive
The overall theme seems to be a car that likes being a proper
street machine, but it also does it with its own distinction... and
that includes the engine bay. The green block stands out nicely
against the rest of the black on this pickup. It's the color of
choice for the classic Olds Rocket V8s that were a valued
powerhouse on the original hot rod scene. The secret to this one is
that it's really a Chevy 307 small block. It's another great
powerhouse from later years, and we're even told this has been
bored .30 over. It has been upgraded for power with a Holley
four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock intake, and headers feeding
into the side pipes. These are baffles to make sure you get the
ideal amount of rumble. There are also good supporting components,
like an MSD HEI distributor, a newer starter, a newer alternator,
and good belts and hoses. It makes for a strong powerhouse that you
fully control with the three-speed manual transmission. Add in a
boxed steel chassis, front disc brakes, and a four-link rear with
adjustable coilovers, and you have quite a solid hot rod
This is the custom-bodied hot rod Ford pickup that was thoughtfully
