The original seat has been treated to a timeless treatment of red and white rolled and pleated Naugahyde. The upholstery work was handled in house at Southern Style Customs. The red interior complements the white exterior perfectly. A Dennis Carpenter carpet kit and seatbelts were used after lining the cab with Dynamat. Vintage Glass supplied the smoke-tinted windows and a Grant steering wheel tops the original steering column. An Alpine stereo provides the tunes, while Southern Air keeps the cab comfortable regardless of the outside temperatures. A trio of Auto Meter gauges are mounted in a Summit Racing bracket below the dash, while the stock speedometer and other gauges remain functional as well.
Since this project was a family affair it took a year or so to finish the truck at Southern Style Customs since other customers’ trucks had first priority. But today, Larry and Tina Black enjoy cruising in their ’71 Ford truck, much like they did many years ago, and this truck is one thing that truly is as simple as black and white.
Is that a short bed or standard?
