1949 F1 @ AAM

We are building 49 F1 for customer. Came in as a stock suspension truck with a small block ford, auto, 9" combo.

He bought the truck a few years back and just feel in love, told us that he will never sell it. We sat down with him and asked him what he was looking for in the build, a really sweet driver.

Well here is a small run down of the truck.
Front Suspension:
Mustang II Control Arms
Mustang II specs narrowed 2"
Slam Specialties RE6 bags
Woodward Steering Rack Set up.
Willwood Spindles
QA1 adjustable shocks


Rear Suspension:
9" Rear End(braced)
Chris Alston 4link with wishbone
Lift bars with Slam Specialties RE7 bags
QA1 Adjustable shocks

Motor/Trans:
1996 LT1/4l60E

When the truck came in.

Long time no update.

Well the truck almost done. Just down to putting some miles on it, checking out everthing. And also we were asked to have the truck at the Goodguys event in Nashville back in may at the Optima Battery booth.

At the Optima booth




Were working on the bed floor now, and the truck will be at the NSRA Nationals, in a few weeks. So if you see it stop and say hey,or just take a few mins and check it out.
