This 1928 Ford Pickup Roadster has V8 power, an upgraded suspension, and a terrific finish that brings a sleek look to the vintage style
So dig into the pics and details, because this is one complete build from every angle.
This truck has a mean stance that combines the original hot rod spirit with cool modern touches. You see it up front where the classic Ford grille and chrome double bumper offer plenty of shine, but you can also see the coilovers peeking out from under the fender. And speaking of those fenders, they are metal pieces that have a great classic swoopy style that go over the 15-inch Centerline alloy wheels with extra meaty tires in the back. And everything from the big headlights to the oak wood in the truck bed has a stylish vintage feel. But the gloss coming off the black paint has the unmistakable look of a proper modern investment.
The interior feels modern without losing its vintage spirit. The bench seat is finished in comfortable cloth, and that’s always great for a sunny-day roadster like this. And the carpeting and door panels coordinate in gray for a uniform style. The classic Ford Model A-style dash is still on display with a working speedometer. But since this is a true driver’s machine, they also added a secondary panel with SunPro gauges and tach. Plus, upgrades like the Lokar floor shifter, Lecarra steering wheel, and tilt steering column really make this a complete setup for modern times.
You’ll love lifting both sides of the hood at car shows to showcase all the polished components of the V8. This is a 283 cubic-inch small block with plenty of upgrades, including an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an aluminum intake, and shorty headers feeding a rumbling dual exhaust. No matter if you’re out for a cruise or want to take full advantage of the enhanced V8, you’ll enjoy the work that has gone into the suspension. There are tubular A-arms up front, a four-link rear, and coilovers all around. So this is a far superior machine to you granddaddy’s pickup. Add in the three-speed automatic transmission, front disc brakes, and wide modern tires, and now you know you’re looking at the total hot rod package with everyday convenience.
