1953 Ford F100 Hot Rod
Posted by Dennis Lacy on Wednesday, August 19, 2020 9:22 AM

This model represents a couple of firsts for me. It's the first 1950's truck I've ever built (except for a factory stock 1950 Ford F1 as a gift for my dad back when I was a kid) and it's the first curbside model I've ever built. There's plenty of these trucks done as customs so I decided to take a hot rod approach. I'm very pleased with how it turned out and couldn't be happier with the tuck & roll interior set from Drag City Casting. The truck wouldn't even be half as cool without it!

Excellent use of every element!
