This 1938 Ford Pickup would stand out among any company of customs it might keep. It’s a sterling example of great taste, a SERIOUS list of custom features and painstaking craftsmanship coming together for an unbeatable result. Sure, drawing admiring looks isn’t a foreign concept for custom trucks, but this is one you’ll never get tired of looking at. The glossy red paint not only holds a great shine, but it accentuates the distinctive curvature of this truck. The 5-window configuration really sets this custom apart and gives it a one of a kind look from all angles. It sits nicely on its alloy rims and Mickey Thompson Sportsman tires and has a great stance. The attention to detail found throughout this build extends rearward to the bed area, which has been tubbed to more easily accommodate oversized tires. A fuel cell resides up top, situated next to the rear window. The wooden bedliner is in good shape and highlights the custom work that’s been done to the wheelhouses on each side of it. A set of grip pads has been added to the side rail steps to provide traction when stepping in and out. Go ahead and have a look underneath- you’ll see a nice, straight undercarriage sporting paint that matches its exterior. Open one of the suicide doors and the distinctive red of the exterior follows you inside to the steering column, middle console and dash and it perfectly coincides with the rich tan of the interior upholstery and custom door panels. Just as with the exterior, these are surroundings you won’t grow tired of. Everywhere you look, you’ll see QUALITY. A set of VDO gauges to monitor speed, voltage, oil pressure, water temperature and fuel level are highlighted in metallic gold and sit perfectly against the unspoiled red of the dash. There’s plenty of functionality to go along with the aesthetics. The A/C blows nice and cold and is seamlessly contained within the center console. The plush bucket seats are not only comfortable they’re adjustable. The steering column is also adjustable and offers up a striking chrome steering wheel, also upholstered in matching tan. A Blaupunkt AM/FM CD player sits at the ready to provide your own personal soundtrack and is in perfect working order. The interior is capped off by a distinctive, custom headliner that combines matching padded carpet and vinyl to great effect. There’s no doubt at all that its visual magnetism and abundance of eye-catching features both inside and out combine to make it look right at home while standing still on display, but this is a custom streetrod that’s also been built with drivability in mind. The Chevy 327 4 barrel, crowned by an Edelbrock air cleaner and paired to a 3 speed automatic transmission, fires right up and underscores a readiness to hit the road any time you might want. It sounds very fresh ready to take you anywhere. The powerplant develops plenty of power and exhales easily out of headers and into dual exhausts, giving it a rich but smooth sound. The Hurst shifter looks right at home in its conveniently located center console. Power steering and front power brakes further add to the drivability of this unique vehicle.
