When you see a bare metal hot rod, that's slammed to the ground,
and has a blown V8, you know it isn't you grandfather's 1929 Ford
Model A Pickup Roadster. But when you also look at how clean, and
quality this recent build is, you might soon realize that the truck
bed is for hauling home trophies... if they can catch you
Completed about a year ago, this full custom build was kept in bare metal to show off its industrial toughness. But when you look closely, you'll realize that when a car gets left with nothing to hide, it can only use the best panels. So while this gives off the instant impression that the bad boy arrived, you'll really be taking pride in the workmanship. And the quality is in more than just the bare body. You also see it in the bright grille, real wood truck bed, and the overall craftsmanship it takes to create the ultimate hot rod that has every inch exposed for the world to see.
Inside is hot rod simplicity with plenty of flair. The black vinyl seats are tough enough to be out in the elements, but soon you see they borrowed a trick from the Europeans by giving the shared seatback the individual comfort of a lower bucket with good bolstering. You sit behind a customized quick-change Joes Racing steering wheel, and beyond that is a bare metal dash with a full set of SW gauges. The final touch is the extra tall Lokar shifter to make you the Rat Fink of the bunch.
An engine this impressive deserves to be out for the whole world to see. There has been a lot of time and money invested in making sure that this whole engine bay shines brighter than the body, so we dare you to find another component that can be polished. But beyond the flash is the substance of a hearty Chevy 350 small block, with a BDS 671 blower on top. If that wasn't enough, you also have the plenty of fuel to mix with the forced induction thanks to the dual Holley four-barrel carburetors. That's some serious power you're creating, and the growl of the straight pipe exhaust will really let everyone know it, too. Getting all that force to the ground is a stout TH350 three-speed automatic and Ford 9-inch rear end. And while this looks like a bare-knuckles hot rod from the outside, be sure to checkout at the undercarriage photos. There you'll see the right upgrades and desirable features like the classic I-beam dropped axle front suspension with Pete & Jakes components, front disc brakes, and an adjustable four link coilover rear.
Outrageously powerful, and wicked beyond your wildest dreams - you know fresh clean builds like this usually cost double what this one is asking. That's why you know you need to hurry if you want to be the baddest pickup on the streets. Call now!!
