You instantly know this is like no other custom pickup you’ve seen before
In fact, we bet you’re taking one look at this custom-built 1929 Ford Roadster Pickup and dreaming about all the awards and attention it will bring. Well, keep reading, because this road-hugging full-maroon machine only gets better the longer you look.
The huge gloss and shine this one radiates lets everyone know it’s a custom build where no expense was spared and no compromises were taken to create the coolest street rod pickup around. The Model A grille sits low in the frame, and the rounded frame tips that now flank it in the middle really drive that point home. The consignor states the body started with real Henry Ford steel, and then it was chopped, streamlined, and channeled so it looks like it could cheat the wind. Getting this truck impossibly low to the ground means a custom frame that cradles the bed and allows room for the suspension to fit through it all. And since the body and frame are all done in the same awesome maroon, it all looks like one thoughtful and cohesive build. There are nice black accents on the grille, headlights, front suspension, windshield frame, and around the bed. But our favorite darkness is the set of wire wheels. It’s an intricate detail that also rises higher than the bed on this sleek machine.
The interior is fully on display, and so it’s carefully crafted to be comfortable without betraying the minimalist attitude. For example, the floors are just steel, but they are done in the same sleek and attractive maroon as the exterior. The seats are simple but have their own flair with the button-top presentation that looks borrowed from armchairs. And the driveshaft tunnel makes for a good armrest and has thoughtfully integrated cup holders. A wood-rimmed steering wheel, good pedals, and a Hurst shifter make for a proper drive that still keeps an uncluttered look.
The motor stays on display, too, and so it also has a very thoughtful style. There’s plenty of sleek black to go with the exterior accents, and there’s a nice touch of maroon on the valve cover for this 153 cubic-inch four-cylinder. Even the pinstriping on the top goes with the white plug wires and white header. Details like the polished alternator, steel braided lines, and electric fan let you know there was thought about style for components that also add substance. That’s why it’s a strong-running total package.
So skip the time and effort it would take to build your dream roadster pickup, and just go right to the front of the car show. But remember this is one-of-a-kind, so when it’s gone, there likely will never be another.
