SWEET PATINA FINISH, BIG BLOCK FORD 460CI V8, A/C, DYNAMAT COVERED CAB, NICE!
Confidence is cool, and patina shows a self-assurance that's becoming red-hot right now. But joining this crowd doesn't have to mean giving up creature comforts. Although this 1953 Ford F-100 may look like it sat in a field for 30 years, it really is a carefully crafted cool custom. So beyond the patina appearance hides some exciting modern conveniences, including A/C, updated chassis, lowered suspension, and a performance-built big blockV8.
For starters, this body is all about being secretly rewarding. The solid Ford cab and bed have been sprayed to look like it has spent a lifetime being a workhorse. The gray paint was given the unique appearance of being worn down into patina. It covers everything from the bumpers, to the grille, to even the custom windshield overhang – it's truly an impressive presentation when you see it in person. The real wood of the truck bed is a nice finishing touch that combines premium lumber with a worn-in character. But there's much more to this pickup than just portraying six decades of preservation over restoration. The first place this is evident is on the modern Ridler alloys that have a great 18/20-inch front/rear stagger to create an aggressive stance on this lowered suspension. Get closer and you'll start to notice the cool pinstriping all around the pickup, including around the custom "Bubba's Chop Shop" logo that was created for this unique machine.
Open the door, and the pickup takes on a new attitude. It swings open with the kind of precision and strength that reminds you how deceptive the worn-look paint really is. The interior is one place where this truck shows off. It has a similar custom pinstriping to the exterior, but now that's on a dash that has a deep silver sparkle. The bench seat likes to show off, too, with its bold red appearance. And the more than grab attention, this newer vinyl provides comfort that's far superior to anything that came out of the '50s. And speaking of added comfort, there's Dynamat sound insulation and modern R134a air conditioning blowing ice cold in the cabin. But from the moment you grab the red and chrome steering wheel, you realize this patina pickup is more than just a coddler. That large SunPro tach with shift light serves a very good purpose.
Under the hood is some serious blue oval big block power. The 460 cubic-inch V8 is usually enough for most people, but you can see there has been a lot more added to it. The big block has been upgraded with the bold butterfly topper, Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock hi-rise intake, Ford racing valve covers, and an electric fan. This power package fires up easily, which helps you enjoy its thunderous roar even more. And underneath the skin are all the right components to back up this monster motor. Ford's stout three-speed transmission sends the power to a multi-link rear suspension with adjustable coilovers, so it can easily handle the extra torque from the big V8. Plus, up front there's a tubular A-arm independent suspension that features power steering. Finish it off with disc brakes and performance tires at all four corners, and you know this one is an all-around stunner.
This Ford has an amazing attitude that tells the world you have a different definition of cool. If you like a preservation appearance with all the right creature comforts beneath the surface and a ton of power, call today!
