Description

She's taking a Burgundy bath and it's a nice hot one for this deep end of the “tub” paint job. With its “phat” gray painted metal grille with a horizontal pointed central bar, and a trio of vertical “chicken legs” giving the central big bar support and 2 single wide gray bezel headlights, this is an iconic design for 50's Ford trucks. A bulbous hood, with some brite work on either side, makes its way back to a single pane windshield and rounded cab area. Perfect running boards connect the front and rear rounded fenders, and create a “step side” for side bed access. Speaking of the bed, its box is straight as arrows with its curled over steel edging and lightly stained oak bed with burgundy painted separators. The tail gate looks much like the original with the Ford script type badge in gray in the center and a straight black steel bumper just below framing the bottom. Maroon steel painted wheels serve as the background for the deep trim rings on their edges, and the chromed F O R D badged moon caps on the center covering the hub. Nice medium wide white sidewall thin tires adorn each corner and weigh in as 235/75R15's looking like new with deep treads.

Swing open the gray painted metal door panels and we think it's going to be utilitarian, but alas! We peer inside and are greeted with a near perfect red tuck and roll with smooth bolsters bench which stretches from these doors through the cab. Seat belts are installed for the passengers for safety's sake. Up front is a burgundy painted tilting steering column topped by a burgundy bakelite banjo style steering wheel. The dash has been modernized but retains its full metal jacket, only now painted in battleship gray. The gauges have been replaced with vintage looking modern digital readout mileage reproductions and have an overall art deco feel. They are cream background and have black styled numbers and letters along with chromed circular bezels. A few small lights line up above these round gauges, and then the dash gets interesting with a chrome trim delineated as it makes its transition to a burgundy center also in full metal. Here we see a metal horizontal grate for the speaker although no radio is installed. Controls for heat are now in and hanging below the dash, and then a lineup of the ashtray and glove box also in burgundy painted metal runs to the edge of the passenger side. Below is a red heater box, some black ribbed rubber flooring and a long Lokar shifter reaching for the driver's hand in the center. The rest of the interior is lined with gray vinyl and is nice and tight.
A rise of the voluptuous hood and you are gazing into a wonderful restored engine bay, which now includes a 350ci V8 crate engine. It's topped with a Holley 4-barrel carburetor underneath a chromed open air cleaner covering. On back is a rebuilt 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission, and way back to spin the rear tires is a Dana 44 rear axle. Headers and a Flowmaster exhaust are now on for better performance and a nice melodious sound from this burgundy beauty.
