With only 500 miles since completing its frame-off restoration, this 1936 Ford pickup has been transformed with sleek red paint on the outside, and a custom leather interior on the inside. And beneath the skin is a well-built small block, four-wheel disc brakes, and an overdrive transmission. It makes for a powerful and head-turning custom that also doesn't stray from its vintage appeal.
This Ford was made to impress. After all, they borrowed the Guards Red paint form Porsche. It's a glossy finish has that unmistakable extra luster from a recent professional application. So it does a terrific job of highlighting all the pre-war Ford curves. Oh yes, this a steel body pickup. The fenders are fiberglass just so that you can get that classic swoopy look while still fitting more modern tires. And this one really loves to balance classic style with plenty of street machine attitude. You see it on the brightwork where the front bumper has the classic appeal as it dips to show off the grille. And that level of shine coordinates with the polished Cragar SS wheels. Not only are they a streetrod favorite, but the extra meaty rear tires give this a more aggressive stance. There are more great classic elements, including beautiful lumber in the truck bed. But the full package ends with a large set of dual exhaust tips that really let everyone know this is far more than just a bright and straight classic.
The tan interior has a fresh look that has a timelessly attract style against the exterior red. And as you look closer, you see the theme continues that balances vintage and new. It starts with the upgrade to dual bucket seats. It provides far more individual comfort than trucks did in the 1930s, and these are finished in a supple leather. They respected the truck's vintage side with the clean and uncluttered dash. But this one also wants to be a proper driver for modern times. So you have well-integrated upgrades like a Flaming River wood-rimmed steering wheel, a Flaming River tilt column, and a full set of crisp New Vintage gauges.
The butterfly-style hood is always a great classic piece that can attract a crowd. But what's contained within is far more modern. It's a Chevy 350 cubic-inch V8, and the full presentation is so fresh and tidy that it's an instant reminder how few miles this has gone since its full restoration/rebirth. Plus, you have some great performance upgrades like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer EPS intake, and shorty headers feeding the stainless dual exhaust. There are also nice supporting components that show this was a thoughtful build, like the Walker radiator, Mallory Unilite distributor, high torque starter, and a CoolCarb plate. As you look underneath, you'll see more of this build's freshness. You'll also spot streetrod style features like the four-link front end. But as a true thoughtful build, this one has extras you don't find in too many other, like the four-wheel power disc brakes and the four-speed automatic transmission w/highway-friendly overdrive.
Complete with build receipts, this is an alluring mix of vintage and modern all wrapped in a fresh package. So you know this pickup is an irresistible deal that you need in your garage. Call today!!!
