Customized pickups from the 40's and 50's are among the most popular vehicles in the collector car hobby right now and the one offered here should leave one bidder feeling very pleased with their purchase. Using a modern 302 V8 with automatic transmission for driving ease. This nod to driving enjoyment can also be found in other features such as power steering and power brakes, power windows, tilt steering column with soft cushioned steering wheel, am/fm/cd stereo and a full aftermarket (but vintage appearing) gauge package. The glossy finish on the wood plank deck in the cargo bed looks great against maroon paint and the truck rolls on blackwall tires. Foregoing the typical modern wheel, this builder wisely chose a more vintage appearance of painted steel rims with hubcaps and trim rings. A modern drivetrain with a very vintage look overall make a terrific combination in this Ford picukp.
