Ford Flareside Custom Pickup
A body-off restoration finished in June 2001 resulted in this gorgeous Radar Blue custom all-steel pickup. The engine is a crate 350 HO with a Holley 600CFM carburetor rated at 330 horsepower and hooked to a 700R4 transmission with a B&M adjustable converter lockup control. The Mustang II front with sway bars ensures capable handling, while the custom interior provides lavish comfort. The bucket seats, headliner, and door panels are all custom stitched, and the dash includes Autometer gauges and a Snake River tilt steering column with a leather wrapped Grant “Streetwires” wheel. At the rear, the power tonneau cover lifts to reveal a bed finished in oak with stainless spacers. From the new grille to the pinstripes and custom tail lights, this hand-crafted truck is one of a kind and worthy of close examination.
