1953 Ford F-100

The problem with a lot of customs is that they simply don’t get driven much, if any at all. After spending countless hours and dollars turning their old trucks into what is essentially a piece of jewelry, owners don’t want to risk damaging them! You can’t necessarily blame them, but it’s sort of pointless.

But what fun is letting your beautiful ride just sit in a climate-controlled garage, never getting to enjoy the open roads calling our name? Life is too short to deny your pride and joy the ability to tear it up, and have fun from time to time.

This 1953 Ford F-100 is a great example of a custom you can and should drive everywhere. You’ll want to show off that slick body, which the owner shaved to make it as smooth as possible. All the lights are custom, as are the bumpers. A set of Chip Foose wheels complements the body lines perfectly.

Running gear consists of a detailed 351 Cleveland and a C6 automatic transmission. There are a handful of performance parts installed, but nothing on the wild side. Just the usual carb, intake, and headers treatment. Convenience options are aplenty, however, like ice cold air conditioning and power everything.

With an inviting and equally comfy-looking interior, it’s clear that this 1953 Ford F-100 was built to drive. And even though it only has a mere 1,356 miles on it since completion, you’ll want to drive this smooth truck everywhere you go. Go ahead, we won’t judge!
