this strapping classic is powered by a correct, 239 cubic inch 8RT Ford flathead that spins smooth 6.75 to 1 compression into an even 100 horsepower and 181 lb./ft. of reliable torque. That power meets the ground through a traditional 3-speed, which twists a proven 10-bolt axle. Correct leaf springs and drum brakes occupy all four corners of the chassis, mixing rugged road prowess with firm and solid stops. And everything rolls on Sheridan Blue steelies, which turn 6.00-16 BF Goodrich Silvertown 4-plys around polished, Ford-stamped hubcaps. When you pop this pickup’s doors, you’ll find a crisp vinyl cockpit that’s simple and purposeful. A requisite bench seat complements neutral side panels, a tight headliner and a black floor mat. In front of that seat, a Sheridan Blue dash hangs vintage telemetry and a correct AM radio over a factory heater. And a large steering wheel laps a thin, column-mounted shifter.
