7/14/13 Ride of the Week

This Ride of the Week is very close to my heart. I have a 53 Panel that I hope looks as good as this one some day....

Congrats to Capt'n Phillips from Washington State!

This is one sweet ride!

Too many mods to list here, so I'll just post a link to his garage with all the mods and many more pictures!

Link: 1954 Ford F100 4x2 - Beast Customs 54 F100 Panel


Enjoy!

Thumbs up Really?!?!? I won?!?!

I'm stunned. What a way to start my week.
Now to address my fellow FORD purist's. The PO stuffed this Bow Tie under this hood. 1st chance I get a decent FORD Iron is going to replace it. Many more modes are in store for this Panel. A Glory Grill with stacked rectangular headlights adorning a rolled front pan. The rear roll pan will get a recessed license plate mount with backup lights. This will hide the class III hitch behind the tilt down license plate. The interior will also get a make over. High back bucket seats that have a center console nestled between them sporting a shifter, stereo, rear backup cam/GPS screen and other accessory switches.
Someday (when I'm rich and famous) I'd luv to slip a full replacement chassis under her skirt with both IRS & IFS. Paint will be a two tone light burgundy upper and black gloss lower separated by a gold strip and pen striping.
Thanks again for making my week with honoring my company truck as "Ride Of The Week"!!
P.S., Hang in there FabManDelux, beat anything with enough time, money and frustration and your truck will probably surpass mine in short order.Capt'n

I can't thank you enough for all the kind words and accolades. It really means a lot.
BTW, my youngest daughter has decided to take up Pin Striping and I think I've got just the blank canvas for her.....whatya think? Color suggestions?

Hot ticket!!!! I would say black, but thats me. If you are impartial, and she wants to do that kind of work, let her decide. Sounds like a win win for her and you

Had one like it in 1980, but was broke and needing cash. Guy offered me $500. and it was gone. Sad day for sure, and have kicked my butt every time I think about it all these years.

Talking sad days; I had a 1939 Chevy coupe, with an Olds V8, running and driving. Paid $150.00 when I was 18 yrs old. While I was away in Marine Corp, my mother sells it to one of her boyfriends for $100.00.
I am still pissed about it....

This truck is making up for all the effies I customized and pretty much gave away back in the 70's...oh...and a 56 Ford Panel Delivery wagon that, many years later, I stumbled upon at a Reno Car show on display with it's trophies.
We won't even talk about the 69 Mach 1 428 Cobra Jet (mint cond.) I swapped for a bucket of bolts....at night no less.
One of those idgit moments I'll not do again.....no .....really.....I've smartined up a bit since those dayz.

Sounds like my trade. Got rid of a 1970 Ford Bronco did one of those drunken trades at night. Screwed is what I got.
