At RK Motors Charlotte, we believe classics are built to be enjoyed, not planned to be enjoyed. And this slick '37 Ford Pickup is a complete 'smart buy' that'll fulfill your needs faster, and cheaper, than any custom you've spent years idealizing.
This smooth and solid creation began life as 'Project HRT', a streetable show concept that was assembled as a giveaway prize during the 2008 season of Trucks TV. Meant to be more of a cruiser than a classic, the pickup's body is a prudent mix of both fiberglass and steel components. When that amalgamation was clean and properly aligned, red and black two-stage was detailed with wicked flames and bright pin stripes. And today, this Ford is a banner showpiece that mixes the skill of experienced fabricators with the integrity of Dearborn's highest quality products.
Under the aforementioned hood you'll find a bored and stroked Engine Factory 347 that utilizes a cast crank, forged connecting rods, forged pistons and a hydraulic roller cam to churn out roughly 415 horsepower.
That brash small block flows power to a rugged Richmond Super Street 6-speed that's rated for up to 600 lb./ft. of torque. That stalwart transmission spins stout 4.30 gears via a Currie 9-inch rear end, 31-spline axles and a proven Trac-Lok differential. At the head of those heavy duty components, an independent front half wraps Flaming River rack and pinion steering in big Baer brakes and adjustable QA-1 coil-overs. At the rear of those heavy duty components, an adjustable ladder bar back half wraps massive tubs in two more Baer brakes and two more QA-1 coil-overs. True-dual, ceramic-coated exhaust funnels a brutal roar through throaty Magnaflow mufflers and big, side-exit pipes. And on the outside of those pipes, polished Mickey Thompson wheels spin beefy 25x8.00R18 Mickey Thompson Sportsman S/Rs in front of massive 33x22.00R20 Mickey Thompson Sportsman S/Rs.
Take a look inside this custom and you'll find a spectacular leather interior that, like the rest of the truck's components, was carefully sourced and professionally installed. At the center of the cockpit, plush bucket seats wear road-ready belts. In front of those seats, a chrome-capped dash hangs crisp Auto Meter gauges behind a stylish, leather-trimmed instrument panel. Below that dash, a custom console floats a driver-centric shifter between power accessory buttons, a small cup holder and controls for the Vintage Air climate system. And in front of the driver, a handsome Grant steering wheel utilizes a Flaming River column to spin flamed spokes around billet accessory stalks.
This super cool Ford is a rolling, roaring example of the classic, old school swagger every builder dreams about. Why prolong enjoyment? Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com today!
