Very slick! Why does the rear bumper stick out so far? Maybe the bed isn't long enough?

Regards, Mark.

Very nicely done. Looks like a front bumper on the rear.

Well done, indeed. I'm curious about the big back window. I'm pretty sure a 56 Ford is going to be too wide to fit on a 52. Could it be from a Dodge? 55-56 Dodge had a similar looking window on a narrower cab, I believe. Hmmmm... Thoughts?

Very nice. If I were building a COE, that is very close to what I would strive for. Different color, of course.

I'm guessing, being from Colorado, he's a Denver Bronco's fan.

electricmaniac is starting off with a positive reputation.
Always enjoy the looking at the larger first F series to see the "interpretations".
The modern mirror seems to fit in just fine. Thumbs up on the eyebrow.
Any pics of dash or interior?

From the size of the arms on the driver, he may be a Bronco player.

Someone standing by suggested a Harley fan? (Not a moto guy, but I guess those are HD colors.)

It may just be the angle of the shot, but it looks like his front bumper is lower on the driver's side.
