Lets talk numbers for a minute. We'll begin with the number 1. As in: this 1955 F100 is quite possibly the nicest, r '1 of' the nicest, ickups on the planet. Of course, number that substantial has to have quite a few more numbers to back it up. So, ow about 4.5? As in: 4.5 years worth of restoration and customization. Then there's 112,000. As in: $112,000 worth of parts and materials for that restoration and customization. Next comes 295,000. As in: $295,000 worth of labor during that restoration and customization. And last but certainly not least: 425,000 and, nce again, . As in: the amount the truck appraised for just 1 short year ago. Looking for a world-class showstopper that's above and beyond pretty much anything outside of six-figure corporate builds? Fix your gaze on this incredible custom Effie!


Professionally rehabilitated and customized during a 6-figure, .5-year restoration, his striking F100 spent most of its life as a no-frills American workhorse. In what amounted to a systematic, o-expense-spared rebuild, ts solid body was completely stripped, and-altered and layered in a modified coat of Toyota Hot Lava PPG Deltron 2-stage. And today, he truck rolls as a game changing half-ton that's one part lust and two parts envy!

If this Ford is any indication, oughly half a million dollars nets some very impressive attributes. At the front of the truck, smoothed and painted grille hangs modern halo headlights above clear parking lamps and a modified valance that swaps factory chrome for monochromatic trim. Behind that grille, shaved fiberglass hood leads the eye to smoked glass, hich plants singled side windows between shaved drip rails and Specialty intermittent wipers. Look closely at the top of that glass and you'll notice that the truck's rather large forehead has been significantly streamlined thanks to careful pancaking and a few inches of forward tilt. Opposite that roof, flowing profile centers shaved doors and slender hot rod mirrors above custom running boards that frame low-profile exhaust pipes. Those boards melt into heavily modified fenders that, hanks to fresh wheel openings, re completely centered on the trucks axles. Between those fenders, completely custom bed frames a billet fuel filler in satin-finish wood. And at the back of that bed, custom tailgate flows in to a custom roll pan that's embedded with Cadillac LED taillights.


Hoist the shaved and insulated bonnet and you'll find 5.4 liters of Ford mod motor that, hanks to a color-keyed supercharger, wists big horsepower into gobs of stump-pulling torque! At the top of the Jet Black mill, monochromatic pipe shuttles wind from a remote air cleaner to a Ford throttle body. That wind joins fossils thanks to Ron Francis wiring and Ford electronic injection, hich make excellent use of Ford fuel rails and custom fuel lines. As that reaction turns into compression, esultant gases are jettisoned through custom stainless headers. That compression's cooling is provided by a custom aluminum radiator, hich stores water in front of a requisite puller fan. There's a modern serpentine system that spins a fresh alternator beside a modern AC compressor. And, esthetically, he truck's custom engine compartment is exceptionally well done, eaturing first-rate ancillaries like SVT coil covers, anton fluid tanks, fresh brake booster, billet hood latch and a billet-secured Optima battery.


One peek under this sweet F100 reveals some of the best work money can buy. First and foremost, heavily modified frame is sandwiched between stainless hardware and color-keyed, ndercoated floors. Behind the five-four, n AODE Super StreetFighter 4-speed, ated for up to 500 horsepower, tilizes a 2,400 RPM stall to twist a custom driveshaft. At the end of that driveshaft, proven Ford 9-inch spins a posi-traction differential around smooth gears and tough, 1-spline axles. That first rate drivetrain pushes a modern 4-link suspension, hich features adjustable coil-over-shocks. Tracking is provided by a Heidts Superide front-half, hich centers Flaming River power rack-and-pinion steering between two more adjustable coil-overs. Braking is equally class, ith Wilwood 6 and 4-piston calipers squeezing a quartet of drilled and slotted rotors. The aforementioned headers dump spent gases in to stainless, illet-strung pipes, hich breathe through throaty Flowmaster mufflers. There's a Rick's stainless fuel tank that's built around an internal fuel pump. And power meets the pavement through Colorado Custom Leadville Aces, hich twist 255/45R18 Toyo Proxes in front of 295/45R20 Toyo Proxes.


Pop this Ford's electronic doors and you'll find a completely custom interior that blends Hot Lava paint with supple leather trim. Front and center, tastefully modified dash seats classy VDO telemetry amid components for proven Vintage Air climate control. Opposite that dash, odern bucket seats stretch tight hides under polished buttons. Between those seats, custom console centers a slender Lokar shifter in front of a polished hand brake and hidden Custom Autosound audio. At the bottom of that console, ustom sills frame premium, range-lit carpet, hich rides under color-keyed floor mats and metal foot pedals. At the edges of that carpet, ailored door panels prop billet handles in front of Specialty power windows. At the top of those windows, sculpted headliner bridges the gap between a billet mirror and leather cab panels. And the driver stays connected to the road through a tilting Flaming River column and color-keyed Budnik wheel.
