TRUCK YOU! A 1954 Ford F-100 and a 1996 Ford E-250
Different people treat their projects in very different ways. Some people look at their ongoing build as a “side project” that they are simply doing for fun.
They have a daily driver that they care about more, at least in a sense, and have no rush or desire to make the build go at a particularly speedy pace. On the other hand, there are some people who look at a build as their central focus — it is the highlight of their garage and their main goal.
They have a daily driver that they just picked up for cheap so they could get around, but they don’t care about it nearly as much. With these people, they intend to put as much time and energy into their project as possible in order to make their dream come true.
Today we’ll be stepping into the garage of a guy who would fall into the latter category, and taking a look at both his amazing project and his trustworthy daily driver that make their home inside!
FTE member Ted (A.K.A. “fordman75“) has been working on his project, a 1954 Ford F-100, for quite a while now. However, he has been working very hard to get it to where it needs to be! And while we call this ride a 1954 F-100, we would be lying just a little bit by saying that. In fact, when completed, this old school beauty will be a bit of a Frankenstein truck — having the body from a 1954 F-100 and the shortened chassis of a 1984 F-250 4×4.
Though it might sound a bit strange, Ted has been moving steadily forward with his build and it seems to be coming along quite well. Be sure to check out his build thread to follow the progress!
While working on his classic ride Ted has been cruising around in his daily driver, a 1996 Ford E-250. As he describes it, the ride is “just a rusty old carpet van.” Still, this beaten beast still seems to get him where he needs to go!
Go check out Ted’s garage and leave some comments, browse the photography, and have a great time! Be sure to keep your garage up to date and maybe you’ll be featured next week on TRUCK YOU!
