You know you want this truck. It has those original good looks that can instantly transport you to another time, And just like a tough grandfather, aged does not mean frail. This pickup has the old school rugged design that looks like it wants teach modern pickups a bare-knuckles lesson. You know the truck can still haul home this weekend’s lumberyard load (heck, there’s enough real wood in the bed that it almost IS the weekend’s lumber run!)

Plus, the two-piece wheels, chrome bumpers, and the small accents on the hood add a dash of flash.
Inside is a cab built for long-lasting function. There’s plenty of dashboard space, thanks to an uncluttered feel that only has to make room for the ornamental AM radio (a luxury item in ‘50s pickups!) Muddy work boots are not a problem because the rubber floor mat means this cleanup is as simple as a garden hose. This Ford's blue-collar roots are immediately known when you grab the three-spoke wheel and feel the grooves of all the workers who relied on similar pickups for decades. Despite this utilitarian feel, there have been a couple of nice upgrades, such as the floor shifter and auxiliary gauge package. These are just special hints at the enhancements in the engine bay.
Under the hood is a big upgrade in blue oval power. Ford’s famous 302 cubic-inch V8 looks right at home under the hood. Plus, it comes with great performance upgrades, including the Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, aluminum intake, and Ford Racing plug wires.

But more than just sound great, this enhanced pickup can be used for long haul comfort thanks to the grip of modern Goodyear tires and the highway-friendly AOD four-speed transmission w/overdrive.
