Real-Life ‘Mater’



I love the weathered look of this '54 F-350, and would love to see someone restore the mechanicals, halt any rust, spruce up the interior and call it good. Of course, dropping in a Coyote wouldn't hurt either... Ha ha. Check out more pics and info here.

Great Tow Mater potential there. The rust finish will save a lot of time. Besides my '56 F100 longbed, I have a '53 Dodge pilot cab that I have converted to a Tow Mater. I get many thumbs up with the F100, but I tell you, the Mater truck will stop traffic.

Holy crap — that's awesome! Would you be interested in a profile of your truck for the homepage? I'm sure it would be a big hit! Let me know and we'll figure it out.
