The word "Custom" on this 1973 Ford F-100 was initially just a trim line. But as you can see from the gleaming modern paint, shimmering grille, leather interior, 450+ hp V8, and a whole host of other features...this is a true custom pickup in every sense of the word.
The Peal White on this is a very cool application. When the sunlight releases the metallic tones buried deep in the clearcoat finish, it has a sparkle that rivals the brightwork. That's why this truck doesn't need any side trim. Just clean straight lines and shaved door handles to create an uninterrupted profile. But on a great classic American like this you always have to have some brightwork. It's reserved for the front where the grille, bumper and F-O-R-D lettering looks like a mirror leading the way. In the rear the bumper is just as shiny, and the tailgate trim gives a hint at the pickup's zoom-zoom nature. And of course, we didn't forget about the large shimmering Ultra Motorsports wheels that are also staggered 20 and 22-inches front/rear for an aggressive stance. There's too much to go over the full list of what's gone into this F-100 Custom (call for all the details.) But you can see the level of intricacy in places like the clear turn signals up front, the blue dot taillights, and how there's even a tough spray-in bedliner under the retractable cover, in case you still want to use it for a hardware store run.
The moment you pop the door openers, you discover an interior that's far more comfortable than anything that came out of the 1970s. The custom black leather bucket seats have modern bolstering for all-day comfort. And when you fold down the center jump seat, you get a cup holder center console with the comfort worthy of a road trip. Trucks like this were made for the driver, so everything is within easy reach, including the heat/defrost controls and the upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo. But the moment you grab the Grant GT three-spoke steering wheel and stare at the full Dakota Digital gauge package (w/shift light), you know this truck was made for driving fun. But just in case you didn't figure that out already, there's a Hurst shifter on the floor.
With a truck that's already show-worth on the inside and out, you better believe that it's finished off with something special in the engine bay. And once you look beyond the shine of the air grabber, master cylinder, valve covers, and other components, you'll see the substance of a performance-built 390 cubic-inch V8. It has been enhanced with go-fast goodies like an Edelbrock cam, PRC rockers, Hi-Tech pushrods, Edelbrock RPM heads, Edelbrock Performer FE intake, Holley 750 Ultra Double Pumper four-barrel carburetor, and Hedman Elite HD headers. The full package is rated at around 450 horsepower, and everyone knows it thanks to the fierce growl out of the Flowmaster dual exhaust. Best of all there's only 2,500 miles on this motor and the four-speed top loaded transmission that gives you complete control over the monster V8. All this power gets to the road via an Eaton Ford 9-inch limited-slip rear end running 3.90 gears for good take-offs. This truck feels great on the road thanks to Ford's sturdy and versatile twin I-beam front suspension that has been given new bushings. Plus, the power steering, front disc brakes, and modern performance tires make this Custom an easy every day choice.
