I recently received a CD containing images of an awesome 1955 Ford F-100 that I just had to share. The truck is owned by a CLASSIC TRUCKS reader by the name of Dean Posey. Dean hales from Azle, Texas, and I must say this Lone Star State-based '55 is quite an impressive pickup.
The foundation for Dean's F-100 consists of a fully boxed frame fitted with a '68 Chevelle front clip and Corvette IRS. A 351 Cleveland backed by a C6 is nestled between the framerails and the exhaust tips exit at the end of the running boards, yes, I said running boards. One of the many custom touches Dean incorporated are a pair of extended running boards that span the distance between the front and rear fenders. Other body mods consist of a forward-tilting hood, lowered and flush-fit door handles, a custom fuel filler door, and a custom rolled and louvered rear pan.
The pickup's interior demonstrates the same attention to detail sporting custom pods for its bucket seating, a modified dash and overhead console, power windows, and a push-button starter. The F-100's most obvious feature is its awesome custom paintjob that utilizes countless custom painting effects, which in unison, create a one-of-a-kind finish that does great justice to the rest of the truck. It's no wonder Dean wanted to share images of his pickup, as I'd be just as proud to show it off myself (that is if I was lucky enough to be its proud owner).
