For Sale: 1935 Ford Pickup in Tustin, California

$49,999 (OBO)

Vehicle Description

This is a rare opportunity to own a 1935 custom pickup by Rudy Rodriquez at Fullerton Fabrication. Rudy is famous for his sense of proportion, stance and period details.  Each build is better than his last and this example is certainly no exception. This build was not created to be a show car but rather a solid, dependable pickup that loves to be driven. In the two years since its completion it has been a regular at Southern California cars shows, driven at historic El Mirage and even participated in the Hotrod Hill Climb in Colorado.

If you wanted to build this from scratch today it would take Fullerton Fabrication 3+ years to complete at a cost significantly more than the listed price. Why wait? Make this one yours!
