The Vehicle Offered This 1936 Ford 317 pickup truck has been extensively modified into a custom street rod that is finished to the highest possible standard with no expense spared. Underneath the all-steel bodywork with fibreglass rear fenders and running boards is a square-tube chassis that has been fitted with an independent front coil spring suspension from the Ford Mustang and traditional leaf springs at the rear. A Ford 9-inch rear axle and power front disc brakes have been installed along with power steering and a tilt wheel. The powerplant is a new ‘350’ small-block Chevy unit with an Edelbrock 650 CFM carburettor, high-rise manifold, performance camshaft and rams horn headers for the ultimate performance package. The radiator has been fully upgraded and an electric fuel pump added for reliable operation. The steel bed features aluminium and oak floors with a heavy-duty trailer hitch and electric brake package installed to make this a capable tow vehicle. Replete with extensive chrome and polished aluminium trim, this is an eye-catching truck that cannot be replicated for anywhere near the estimated sale price.
