1953 Ford F-100 Restomod Description:

This 1953 Ford F-100 Restomod is an awesome kind of custom pickup that takes the classic commanding appearance, and puts some serious modern muscle behind it. So you get to enjoy a fuel-injected LS1 V8 upgrade, six-speed stick, upgraded suspension, four-wheel discs, and much more from the comfort of an A/C interior.
This classic pickup wants everyone to remember exactly who you are. The deep blue paint is almost as dark as black, but when the sunlight hits it, there's a richness of color. It goes for a truly modern look with the painted grille, front bumper delete, and custom rear roll pan that goes well with the flat tailgate. They removed bright work everywhere from the headlight bezels to the badging for a smoother look. Even the door handles were expertly eliminated. In fact, the largest piece of bright work you're going to find on the body is now the truck bed! The other piece of polished shine you're going to notice are those 15-inch Centerline racing wheels. Of course, the reason why they really command your attention is because of the extra wide rear rubber and aggressively lowered stance that hint at the performance upgrades beneath the sheetmetal.
It's always an attention-getter when you pop the remote door openers, and there's plenty more to impress when you get inside. This has some nice comfort features, like cold-blowing R134a air conditioning, custom door panels with power windows, and an AM/FM/CD stereo w/aux input mounted in an overhead console. This is setup to be a far more driver-focused machine than how Ford built it in '53. After all, they never had high-back racing bucket seats, a Hurst floor shifter, or a full Dakota Digital readout panel that has a cool blue glow to coordinate with this truck's color theme.
The whole front end tilts forward like a Corvette, and that's for a very good reason. After all, people are going to marvel at the Corvette-based LT1 V8 upgrade. This fuel-injected powerhouse inhales deeply with a cold air induction, and it exhales thought shorty headers on their way to the sweet-sounding side exhaust. It's an awesome powerplant upgrade, and you get to control it to the fullest with a Tremec T56 six-speed manual transmission. This feeds a strong narrowed Ford 9-inch rear, and Mickey Thompson Sportsman tires are there to keep plenty of rubber on the road. As you look at all of this in the undercarriage photos, you'll also spot a Mustang II-style independent front end, four-link rear, and adjustable coilovers all-around. Add in power steering and four-wheel power disc brakes, and this is the powerful restomod that also provide proper control.
This custom build combines classic looks, modern conveniences, and high horsepower. So if you want all eyes on you this weekend, you need to call today!
