There are, quite literally, a lot of stock 60’s Ford trucks out there, and they look fantastic just the way they are. The classic lines also make a great base for building something a little bit more, shall we say, custom. Just have a look at this 1962 F-100 and you’ll see what I mean when I say show truck.

It’s received the full street rod treatment thanks to a whopping $125,000 investment. The body has been smoothed out and is devoid of most of its stock trim, because the highlight here is a stunning PPG Kandy Radiant Orange Glow Metallic and Sterling Silver paint job.

The engine bay has been smoothed out as well, with a newer Mustang 5.0 sitting between the frame rails. It’s backed up by a 4-speed automatic transmission, and a 3.70 geared 9-inch rear-end for easy cruising.

The interior is simply stunning and thoroughly modern, with a custom dash, Painless wiring, Vintage Air setup, Flaming River steering column, thumping stereo, and billet steering wheel. The more you look, it becomes apparent that nothing has gone untouched on this flawless show build.

So while a lot of Ford truck enthusiasts will scoff at this ’66 for its host of modifications, others will surely enjoy it. Despite of it, there’s nothing distasteful here. Even if modified Fords aren’t your cup of tea, take a minute to appreciate a build well done.
