1953 Ford F-100 Additional Info:

This 1953 Ford F-100 is the total custom build pickup you've been looking for. It offers an awesome two-tone paint job, a spectacular matching A/C interior, and a gleaming performance 302 V8 under the hood. You can read on for all the other details, but we already know you're hooked on this eye-catching custom.You know this paint alone causes a stir wherever it goes. The only thing that can shine brighter than a deep coat of Candyapple Red is metallic silver, so they were both used to create this shining star. And to separate these two simmering elements is a neon yellow pinstripe, but that's not what you really see. Instead the carbon fiber that follows the yellow is the real detail they'll be talking about. It gives this vintage Ford a very modern twist, and it only helps that there was an investment in super straight sheetmetal so that this whole design can flow seamlessly from panel to panel. And great metal is perfect for a truck like this, because '53 was the first year for the 2nd generation F-Series. The new design centered around a theme that has been rounded off everywhere for a very sporty appearance that still has vintage charm. And the world of modern and classic seem to merge perfectly all over this pickup from the painted grille, to the large American Racing alloys, to the real wood truck bed.Open the door to see even more amazing custom work. The red and sliver theme continues inside with the two colors playfully alternating on the seats, carpeting, side panels, and headliner. For those of us who have ridden in real 1950s machines, the sight of the bucket seats with a cup holder center console signifies a superior level of comfort. But this is far from the only upgrade. You and your passenger will love the modern AM/FM/CD stereo, and the ice-cold R134a air conditioning means you get to stay cool while looking cool in this F-100. But the best features are reserved strictly for the driver. You get the banjo-style chrome steering wheel mounted on a tilt column. Beyond that is a full set of gauges, including tach, which is a clear indication of something special under the hood.You're going to love tilting the hood forward at the car shows to reveal the Ford V8. But we will warn you that you might want to grab your sunglasses before looking into the engine bay. Not only is the whole area painted metallic silver just like the exterior, but also just about every component has been polished, including the air grabber, alternator, compressor, master cylinder, and Ford Racing valve covers. And when you look beyond the shine, you're going to see the substance of a 302 cubic-inch V8 that has been upgraded with a mild cam, aluminum intake, and four-barrel carburetor. The dual exhaust makes a wicked performance sound, but don't think of this custom purely as a speed machine. It has a lot of great anytime driving features such as the three-speed automatic transmission, independent front suspension, power steering, and front disc brakes. Plus, the aluminum radiator with electric fan means your vintage pickup stays cool even when you're in traffic with the A/C running. So don't be afraid to take this one to the car shows that lesser classics could never journey that far.The amazing paint is what grabs you, but it's only the beginning of the full custom build. In fact, this turnkey ready classic has barely gone 1,600 miles since completion. So the first one to grab this deal will be the one who gets to break it in. Call today!!!
