This 1931 Ford pickup is the perfect mix of a hot rod and a cool cruiser

Good lines, well-coordinated paint, fun details, and a hardy V8 on display make for an awesome total package.

The upright original-style silhouette will make people immediately recognize this as a ’30s-style Henry Ford cruiser. And the khaki blue kind of color makes for a nice classic style. But this pure 1930s feeling lasts only for a moment. The paint has a nice modern gloss, and the cab is fiberglass to have a smoother kind of style. Plus, the deleted fenders, smoothie wheel covers, deleted bumpers, and lake-style headers are all pure hot rod cool. You can tell they took extra time and effort to blend the worlds of vintage and new. You can really see that in the truck bed. The steel sides and wood floor are great period-correct pieces. And the upgraded fuel tank even blends in nicely with a color-matched presentation that also has classic leather straps.

The well-placed updates continue inside. The exterior blue returns, and now it’s joined by a tasteful tan. It is a premium color combo that’s sure to get plenty of compliments. That’s especially true because the carpeting, door panels, dash, and headliner all have the look of quality. And we especially like the upgrade to individual bucket seats. The two-tone steering wheel is quite stylish, and there are nice upgrades like the tall Lokar-style shifter and central Haneline readout with all the essential info.

The engine bay is worth keeping on display. It has a thoughtful level of detail with a smoothly contoured firewall, plenty of polish, color-matched valve covers, and a coordinating Cadillac air grabber. It strikes the right look of boldly custom while also remaining sophisticated, and that seems to be this truck’s overall theme. This 350 cubic-inch V8 is built right with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock intake, and an electric fan. And the headers add power while feeding into the dual exhaust. Plus, you have the option of using the cutouts for a true hot rod rumble. The undercarriage shows off more style with a strong color-matched frame, a polished four-link drop axle front end, and a four-link rear with adjustable coilovers. And the three-speed automatic transmission, power brakes, and front discs make for a nice cruising total package.
