Here's one of those great builds where you instantly know someone took the time to customize every inch of it. This 1930 Ford Roadster pickup is a boldly-colored steel body laid over a custom frame with its unique flathead V8 on display for the world to see. Oh yeah, it's the kind of attention-grabber that you'd expect to pay a lot more to take home.
Let's start with the first impression. The steel body sitting way back on the frame with the cab channeled over it. It gives this the kind of low-slung, swept-back sensibility that make it look fast just sitting in the parking lot. And people can even recognize the style at night because that green almost glows in the dark. Plus, the black not only look slick, but it's also the perfect place to showcase the hand-painted pinstriping on the hood, headlight surrounds, grille, and even the gas tank that has been neatly integrated to peer out of the top of the smooth tonneau over the truck bed. Plus, this has all the great classic hot rod touches, like the front suspension on display, classic Ford V8 logo in the grille, tall Firestones in the rear, and a couple of velocity stacks sticking out of the hood. It's a very cool total custom build.
There's a nicely fitting black convertible top, but really, you're going to want to show this interior off to the world. That's because the full color scheme is continued inside to give a uniform feeling to this whole build. The leather seating looks terrific with the green streak that runs seamlessly into the door panels. And more than just eye-appealing, the individual cushioning divided by cup holder center console provides some nice comfort. And speaking of comfortable, each seat also has an individual heater, which will make you quite happy on any early morning run to the car show. The three-spoke all-black steering wheel looks great against the bright green dash, and even the pinstriping returns for great added flair. But what you'll really like is the full set of gauges, including the very important SunPro tach.
The bright namesake heads of Ford's famous 239 cubic-inch flathead V8 might be the first thing that grab your attention, but it's far from the only detail people will be looking at. Because this has a lift-off hood, we love how they took the time to have the firewall and engine block match the body color. So just like the interior, you'll love showing this motor off to the world. There has been a solid investment in the fundamentals and performance of this V8. So not only does it have plenty of newer components, but also it has go-fast foodies like a Edelbrock aluminum cylinder heads, a performance intake, and wrapped headers. And you have full control over this V8 and its thunderous soundtrack with the modern T5 five-speed manual transmission. Also take some time to look to the undercarriage photos. You'll love how the custom frame contours to fit this roadster pickup body perfectly. Plus, you'll also spot great driving features like the front disc brakes and QA1 adjustable coilovers in the rear.
Slick, unique, and memorable thoughtful builds like this are rarely this obtainable. So don't miss out, call today!
