Naturally, yours will have all the cool tricks you've seen on other builds rolled into one awesome package. And it'll feature the perfect stance, a top-notch powerplant, a stylish interior and imaginative paint that lets everyone know you've arrived. The problem is: haven't you been saying this very same thing for the past five years... ten years... has it already been twenty years?! It seems like you're a little long on planning and WAY overdue for some octane-fueled fun. At RK Motors Charlotte, we believe classics are built to be enjoyed, not planned to be enjoyed. And this magazine-featured F100 is a complete 'smart buy' that'll fulfill your dreams faster than any custom you've spent years idealizing! BODYWORK/TRIM When the owner of this red-hot Effie began planning a cross-country road trip in a vintage pickup, he had every intention of sourcing a nice, reliable cruiser. And he did just that by purchasing this solid, Seafoam Green Ford. But, as happens with so many of these projects, hobby turned into obsession and minor restoration turned into an opportunity to create something incredible. And eventually, with the intent of taking the truck to a level that no one else had accomplished, he kicked off a professional, high-dollar transformation. Since beginning its career as a show queen, this squeaky clean Ford has logged only selective road time, keeping its PPG 2-stage virtually flawless. Its custom graphics, which can easily be removed, are timeless and well done. And, naturally, fit and panel alignments remain about as close to perfect as such a thing can be. Since we're talking aesthetics, I'll go ahead and point out notable details resulting from both this Ford's original restoration and two subsequent years of fine-tuning. Up front, an original grille hangs a traditional V8 emblem and modern tri-bar headlights above a chromed and tucked bumper. Behind that grille, a shaved, forward-tilt hood snugs at like-new glass, which incorporates a sliding window opposite small wipers and an electric cowl vent. At the sides of that hood, original front fenders lead stylish mirrors, traditional door handles, a power antenna and a nostalgic fuel filler. Below those fenders, Ford-branded running boards flow to a lighted Oak bed that's framed in stainless skid strips and a locking Gaylord tonneau. And at the back of the truck, a smoothed tailgate rides between a small, functional rearview camera, aftermarket taillights, and a second chromed and tucked bumper. ENGINE Prior to its aforementioned tuning, this fun loving Ford sported a '70s Lincoln motor. And while that mill certainly provided adequate power, 'adequate' just isn't up to a level that no one else had accomplished. Tilt the trick hood and you'll find a fresh, 5.0 liter Ford Performance 'mod motor' that twists stout 11 to 1 compression into 420 horsepower and 390 lb./ft. of tire-melting torque! Officially named Coyote, and not far removed from the engine that powers the current Mustang GT, this state-of-the-art rocket features a forged crank, forged rods, hypereutectic pistons and all-aluminum, 4-valve construction. At the top of block, custom, TIG-welded stainless pipes air from remote Spectre filters to an 80mm, single-bore throttle body and tuned, composite
