Chuck looked passed the paint because the twin turbo 5.4L Ford motor and 4R100 transmission were already installed. The paint was fair but Chuck wanted to make the truck his, so he enlisted help from John Stangl of High Performance Customs in Temecula to install a big back window to match the style of his old, yellow F-100. John also shaved the door handles and installed the remote entry along with a long list of other things. A custom fuel tank was constructed to handle the fuel demands of the 5.4L big block. The previous owner installed a Moser 9-inch Ford rearend with 3:50 gears that Chuck says is a dream to drive on the freeway. When the truck was finished, his friends convinced him to take it to the GNRS in Pomona, California, where he won four awards in his class: Best Truck in Class, Outstanding Engine, Outstanding Interior, and Outstanding Truck. Congrats Chuck. Now go enjoy your beautiful pickup. CT
