On the surface, building a truck as amazing as this 1949 Ford may seem easy, but when you look at the details that make it so seamless, you realize that a lot of talent and a big pile of money were required. You could probably build one like this yourself, but since it would take three years and cost six figures, why not just take this one home instead? That iridescent blue paint is the same stuff they used on the Viper, and has enough metallic and pearl in it to give it a glow from within. On the curvaceous Ford sheetmetal, it looks fantastic and seems to emphasize every little detail. Note the subtle eyebrows over the wheel openings, the shoulder that extends the hood line all the way around the cab, and the embossed lettering on the tailgate, all details that often get overlooked with ordinary paint. The steel is all factory-issue, with no modifications, so the wonder of this truck is the exceptional execution. Surface prep is flawless, fit and finish is outstanding, and the trim has been refinished to show standards. The bed is beautifully finished with a custom diamond plate toolbox, as well as a fuel filler plug discreetly hidden amidships. Nice! A full luxury interior was stuffed inside the pickup's cab, including leather buckets from a late-model which include built-in seatbelts, a neat solution for an age-old problem. Matching door panels were created to give the truck a luxurious feel, and deep carpets help keep noise and heat at bay. The original dash remains, augmented by a billet insert full of Dolphin gauges and a modern AM/FM/CD stereo where the original AM radio might have lived. They created a custom lower panel that follows the curves of the dash, so it looks OEM and houses stuff like the A/C vents, a tachometer, and controls for the CD changer under the seat. A billet steering column and leather-wrapped wheel makes it easy to get comfortable behind the wheel, and you'll forget you're in a 60-year-old pickup truck. A lot of credit for the high-end feel has to go to the big block Chevy under the hood, whose effortless power makes this truck a true pleasure to drive. Bored out to 468 cubic inches and fed by a pair of 4-barrel carburetors, it feels like it could pull all day without breaking a sweat, and looks like a million bucks doing it. Billet dress-up pieces, lots of chrome, and careful installation make it a show-quality engine bay. Underneath, the chassis offers a custom A-arm front suspension, a powdercoated frame, power steering and disc brakes, as well as a great-sounding Flowmaster exhaust system. A TH400 transmission feeds a 12-bolt full of 3.55 gears, so you don't have to worry about durability behind the big block. 18-inch wheels stuff the wheelwells and wear staggered BFG radials. This is the kind of truck that few guys get to own, but everyone wishes they could. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
